She runs an drives, at night a flashlight comes in handy and the tire goes flat in 30 minutes so only good for short excursions. 4AFA864C-55BC-438E-A2AF-77AAE73F5194.thumb.jpeg.41253e264e1e4879575dc6d4424727b8.jpeg10979D3E-4E45-4010-9110-F1B89A197F60.thumb.jpeg.d6cfda691bf45ae75b8b4e177655faee.jpeg

Had a run in with a feed wagon, still puts out good heat. Can’t kill a Chevy….I’m really a Dodge guy, but that truck is in the middle of a restoration. So I drive chevy’s for now and maybe the winter since I don’t care if they slowly disappear……

I was going hunting one year and on a stretch of highway all by myself for more than a mile and tried texting, I was literally all over the road, bloody idiots who do it all over the place and think it’s all good deserve the huge fines.

This event didn’t happen on the road… I have to admit that I may be guilty of texting and driving but not often. This was an event that I wasn’t part of fortunately, I just have to fix it. This is the 4-5 incident this poor truck has had all with someone else at the wheel. It’s pretty beat.

Well, @1586 Jeffis the better man to explain, but you see when he starts feeling frisky, not just any old gal from the Dunkin Donuts will do, he likes red headed Tupper Lake sweat hogs. They grow em big in NNY, and nowhere bigger than in Tupper, it helps them survive the cold climates up there, and the men seem to have developed a symbiotic relationship, only the biggest Hoggin Wagons can handle 2 Tupper Sweat Hogs, so the men have evolved to be kinda skinny, this allows extra room for the hogs, the hogs then likewise keep the men warm. It is evolution at its finest.
When selecting a Hoggin Wagon you don’t want something real nice, the Hogs wouldn’t appreciate it anyway, once they’ve been in it, it no longer has any resale value, even scrap prices in NNY reflect the poor value of a Hogged out Hoggin Wagon. 
an ideal Hoggin Wagon is an old retired handicap van, preferably with rust holes big enough to aid in ventilation, but still with a functional ramp so as to aid in loading the hogs. It works best to have 2 donut spares on the ramp side to improve the load angle. Plastic duct taped over the windows is a nice touch too, if you land yourself an extra ripe one, just tear it off for maximum air circulation, don’t worry about the cold, they throw enough heat.

 

@Ihfan4life, do you have any input? 

Where’s Jeff’s hoggin wagon?

Jeff does not have, nor has he ever had, a “hoggin wagon”.  That would be Seth’s department.  I was never “brave” (foolish???) enough to go “hoggin”.

Seth on the other hand has bragged PLENTY about his exploits in Tupper.  Hearing about the bearded gal that chewed Red Man and drove a skidder from Seth was enough to make me want to become a monk!!!

And these elaborate vehicular designs with ramps and donuts is too much for my taste.

It is now making sense to me why Seth called me to apologize to me the other morning.

 

What I can do for everyone’s enjoyment is to share a picture of a rusty, crusty Ford pickup truck!

Firstly, i do not apologize. I might ask if you are mad at me, but i do not apologize, secondly, i learned all I know about Tupper from you, thirdly, I would NEVER make fun of your fine steed, but if i were you, I would buy my oil filters one at a time.

All this talk about rusty Fords reminds me of my old 89 Ford f250 7.3cid. The floor boards were rusted out you could watch the road go by under your feet. rusted out cab mounts cab corners plus alot more but that old Ford kept on running. Plowed snow with it and it did get me from point A to point B. Bet I drove that truck like that 20,000 miles or more
