Today I went for a ride on the four wheeler to a lake that is half a mile from my house, if you go through the woods. Since you can't have any motorized vehicles on the trail, I parked the four wheeler about 200 feet from the main trail. When I was walking over to the trail, I found this! A brand new, unopened gallon jug of bar and chain oil!

E6AF956D-DBF9-47F6-B29E-AD9D18F778A1-531

 

It was off to the side of a trail following the power lines, there where a lot of small 3-4 inch diameter trees cut down, and I could tell that it was not fresh; the cut ends had already darkened and I saw no wood chips. I did what any of us would do, and walked it back to where I parked the four wheeler so I could bring it home with me. I am sure one of the town workers left it behind, I guess people just don't care when the money comes from somebody else's pocket!

Did you mark the spot? There's probably a wrench and a file laying there also.

No, but I remember exactly where it was. I might have to look for a wrench and file tomorrow! I am not sure if you are being your usual self, but you may be onto something here. :poke:

That's probably been sitting there all winter Ryan. They most likely weren't cutting the sides of the trail back in the winter.

It might reject it like a bad heart!! I can see it now, Ryan pours it in the saw and it spits it back out before he can get the cap on. Sounds like a great comedy skit.

This was clearly left behind; although, that does remind me of a floor jack I found on the side of the road a last weekend!

Exactly.  Like the guy who dropped a John Deere Kohler into a Cub Cadet.

 

This was clearly left behind; although, that does remind me of a floor jack I found on the side of the road a last weekend!

 

That reminds me of the great floor jack story. 

 

I worked at tractor dealership a long time ago, and this guy came in who was clearly drunk.  He had a trailer, single axle, and a huge floor jack, 20 ton lift, on it tied with a piece of rope on a trailer with no sides.  He came in to see if we had a tire for his trailer.  Of course, I had to know what size, since we had a few.  The guy says, "Come on, I'll show you." 

 

So out we go to the trailer: He says to me, "This is where I need one.  It blew yesterday, and I got it home, but I figured you needed to see it."  He had pulled the trailer in on the rim.  No kidding.  There isn't a scrap of rubber on it. 

 

I told the guy that I didn't have the right tire, but I could order it and have it tomorrow.  He got all huffy and he would go someplace else.  I warned him "Don't you take the trailer, you'll either get pulled over or destroy it completely."  I offered him that we would let him park it in the back.  The guy jumped in his truck, rolled down the window, and said that he would be a fool if he left it with us.

 

Now, he had pulled in straight to the parking spot, so he had to back the trailer to leave.  He started backing, and of course in his state of sobriety jackknifed it. 

 

He pulled forward.  Bam over the concrete parking spot.

 

Back up.  Jackknife.

 

Finally after a couple tries, he got it to where he could spin the truck around and get out.  And he spun the truck.  Gravel everywhere, and that huge floor jack snapped the rope like thread and blew off.

 

Presto: the shop had a new floor jack.

I went to look for the tools, didn't find them. Although... I did find this! Unbelievable! Another jug! It looks like this one was opened, filled the saw once and left there! I parked the four wheeler in a slightly different spot, so I walked a different path and found this one. Some kind of animal was chewing on the handle, but that is not a big deal.

See? I wouldn't send you out into the woods on a wild goose chase.

 

PS - The tools are there, there's just too many leaves to find them. :poke:
