Picking up the truck my daughter bought. Couple after we unloaded it at home. Have to get it in the shop as soon as it’s melted out of the snow bank it’s in

Looks like it has some great possibilities!

The fact that your daughter is interested in this for a project speaks volumes on her raising and character, gotta question if it might be a bit light for pulling the trailer though...😁

Looks like nice project! Is that the truck that had the Christmas lights on it by the highway?

That’s the one. It’s slowly making its way closer and closer to the shop. Lol

Thanks, I’ll keep that in mind as we get this project started. Do you offer free personal delivery?

I was touring Southern Saskatchewan a couple days ago and had to stop and take a pic. Getting to see less and less old elevators around. One was pretty rough shape

Inglis MB has a really neat collection of Elevators that are always great to see.

A buddy I went to college with also enjoys travelling around and taking pictures of older elevators

Yes they do. Those 3 are well known and well kept. I been past a few times but I've never actually stopped to tour them. Someday. I was pretty small but remember when alot of these small towns had the elevators shut down and tore down. Still a few left that some local farmers bought and keep in good shape, but more of them are falling apart now. 

On a side note on elevators, we sawed some beams that were pulled from a elevator a few years ago. They were stamped 1932 I think it was, and they were just like cutting fresh cut spruce. In fact one or two of the beams actually had some sap stick to the blade

...this is the starting point  for a great hunting experience....via fishing boat to 'steam ' down to any of the many huge 'sounds'  that run back of our south west coast....This takes in vast areas....which  have wapiti and red deer 

At certain times of the year, many fishing boats work out of Milford Sound   (some of which pictured...),,,,and if you know the right bloke...you are on your way !!...and if you are like me....once you hit the open sea...puke time..big time....:(

...you do have a 'spitefull '' streak in you, Hardtail  .....:D...but notwithstanding  your comment...I would happily  endorse it ....:)

I have a bunch of pictures , still on 35mm  slides.....but have yet to sort them out....despite  suggesting otherwise..

Globull warming has struck  us this Friday  morning,  we have been snowed out  up where the rock cartage is ongoing ,for river work...I know you Canadians would laugh at this...but the river is up and the 30 ton Cat Excavator 's    quick hitch  let go around the front jaw.....so homeward bound ...!!
