This is just a little follow up to my last post about fixing up that vintage trailer. Here it is in action.
I recently loaded up some rusty scrap left over from ranching days out here on Willow Grove Farm. Lots of fence wire, barbed wire and bent up cattle guards. This was a pretty hard load to tetris onto the trailer in any kind of efficient way. I managed to make it work and did a good job of it. I sincerely believe the skills of envisioning and then manipulating big, bulky or awkward objects onto a trailer or truck elegantly are only acquired through practice and frustration.
When things slow down I’ll paint up the sides, re-do all the lights and the housings and give the bed a top coat, generally spruce it up.
Equipment gets used and abused, needs maintenance. Nothing exists in a vacuum; age, wear and failure can only be temporarily overcome.
