I haven't been able to get back into the woods for awhile because of so much rain. We haven't had any in three days with a few more dry days ahead. I may head out like you towards the end of the week. The woods are calling me.

Most of those machines back in the day would have been the absolute pride and joy of the family that first bought it. Can you imagine the $ they had to lay down in those times, a time when disposable income was a fraction of what we have today. No credit cards, no personal lines of credit. It would have been saved for, for years and paid in cash.
I remember as a child, Dad digging the large garden we had by hand, then finally buying a used DB walk behind. It was a time of pride for him for sure. These were the times when these conveniences we have today did not exist, and $50 was A LOT OF MONEY!.
Oh what these machines could tell us of times past and their owners.

That is cool seeing these old tractors out there working! It would be great if somehow the history behind old machines like this could be shared with the current owner/operators. Thanks for taking us with you on that ride!
