So I got to thinking about what I would have to do if the house sold during the winter.
A few years ago I had built an inclosed trailer that I will use to load the furniture in and I keep that trailer out behind the barn.
I brought the trailer up and parked it in the parking area behind the house.
This area is in front of the garage and I keep it cleared of snow all winter so the trailer will be easy to load and to hook up to at any time.
Normally this would be all that would be necessary for us to head out during the winter.
However, I got an itch last summer and ended up buying two more tractors and the small forklift.
There is a spot along the road in the field at the back of the property where I can back the truck in and it makes the ramps almost level for loading and unloading.
The problem is that this loading spot is only accessible during the summer.
During the winter the snowbank along the road can get from four to six feet high and the field can have two or three foot of snow on it.
So I decided that it would be best to load the truck up now and park it in the garage for the winter ... just in case the house sells.
The small forklift is loaded on the truck and the trailer that I got with the Viking tractor is fastened to the forks.
The case is also loaded on the truck.
One thing nice about this is that if we do have to move during the winter, all the weight in the back of the truck should help with traction on snow covered roads.
The tongue on the trailer is long enough that I can bolt a piece of plywood on top of it and fasten the Viking tractor on it for the trip south.
