HOMESTEAD BACKLOG UPDATE(8) THE MUD BOG and THE TRACTOR
WORK AND FUN
The following account is from March 27th 2021
Around where I live people love to build trucks and toys to play in the mud with. I don't have the expendable income to do such a thing, but I try to take advantage of this. Recently, I worked security at a mud bog where they do such things. I also went there hoping to sell some of my jellies and Maple syrup.
This blog will mainly be pictures, as there's not much of a story to tell.
Upon arrival the place is very clean and almost no one was there.
It was fun to watch as the people showed up...each with a vehicle they built and brought to play with.
*The Ford F-250.
*The deuce and a half military truck, owned by Matt, the gentleman who put on this event.
*A Jeep with tractor tires and a snorkel...for breathing under water/mud.
*A fun side by side.
*Another deuce and a half owned by a friend.
*An old army Jeep being pulled out of the shed.
There were a lot more vehicles too...but let's get to the fun stuff...
*Family fun muddin in the back of the deuce.
*But, not for long. TRACTOR POWER!!!😁
*Ready for a tug of war...the Jeep won.😁
The homestead tractor.
It was here that i bought a tractor. It was very cheap(and old) but it ran well and i couldn't pass it up. It's a 25 HP 1956 Massey Ferguson.
All in all it was a great day!!! And I earned a little bit from peddling my goods.
I hope you'll come back and join us for the next backlogged update as we install the needed plumbing for the cabin, inside the cabin.
