Made it up to my place in Maine 400 mile trip one way 

Had to suck up the Diesel price I needed to bring up a mower deck and didn't have time to make a deck for the back of the gas truck

The Duramax got 17 MPG I thought was pretty good lots of aero drag on this truck with the off-road bumper and Flat bed 

Here some photos 

Last time I was here 1st week of March we were ice fishing and had to winch past a couple deep spots in the snow

Arm Pit Diesel was $6.40 gallon in Maine I found some for $5.99

I found this tow behind deck last fall for $400 got it running works well 

I had been cutting the hill with a push mower it was tough since I only make it up once a month and it would be too tall for the push mower I would have to hack it down with a walk behind line trimmer 1st took several hours now I am done in 30 minutes

Not telling anyone what to do but if it were me...........

I'd padlock the gate so I couldn't leave, 

That looks like the perfect place to hole up, shut out the world, and ride out the storm!

I thought about one of those tow behinds for part of our field I mow thinking it would be nice to off set it and do about 8’ at a time with the mower out front of it. What lake is that in Maine  I have a friend that just bought some land in Lincoln to be able to go up with his ATV’s and put a camper then eventually a cabin on

Is "missing winter" the same as "sumbitch"

 

It’s not all bad no mosquitoes, no ticks and slightly more free time to go play just have to keep moving so you don’t freeze in place lol.
