Have never been around one so had no idea they were that unhandy.

Maybe that is where it quit.

Where it is at might best serve as a deer blind?

Hmmmmmm maybe I should low-ball an offer?

I like the deer blind idea. It would probably run and do heat and A/C fine :-)

Seems that wider ones work better - examples here 8 foot wide better than 6

Did that storm turn into anything? Pretty heavy duty cloud pattern.

Rain and  big wind if I recall, nothing too drastic

I have not seen many cows get over a cattle guard. When they have it has been filled with dirt/mud from improper drainage of road gutters. Or they where built with a concrete frame and they walk the edge. Why you see a old tire or the fancy ones with 1/2 tires to block the edge.

Sandhiller, your pics bring back old (even though I'm young to some of the fellas) memories. Used to come down to Ainseworth, O'Neil areas to visit family. Loved the wide open, always felt welcoming to me. Don't know why, just did. Loved to see the family, once I was real young and went out to the Peterson buffalo ranch. Course that was early to mid nineties. Don't know if it's still going or not. Still have a lock of hair I found on some brush that was out on the pasture during our "pickup truck tour". Grandpa, before he died, got to go back to the house he grew up in, although it wasn't more than a delapidated old pile of standing wood. Door still was hung, but I think it was the only thing left still square on the house. It was off an old gravel road some miles out in the middle of nowhere. Closed house was ten miles away, but gramps remembered how to get to it.

It's all about the memories.

Don't cost a thing, and yet are priceless.

Thanks for sharing yours?
