No cows

Postby Dave » Thu Sep 28, 2017 6:17 pm

So for the first time in a lot of years I have no cows. Sold the last of them 2 weeks ago. I have made way too many trips in moving. Who knew that a person had this much stuff. it is 200 miles one way from this place to the new one. I have made 3 trips pulling a 20 foot GN stock trailer, 4 trips with a 24 foot GN flatbed. and one trip pulling the boat. I have two more trips left. I left here at 6:30 this morning and back at 3:30. I sure wouldn't want to be a truck driver.

I've moved so many times over the years that I'd lots rather take a good whoopin' than do it again. Glad you're almost there and there's always more cows to be found.

You know you've moved to many times when you walk out to the henhouse and the chickens lay down and cross their legs you you can tie them to move them.

I hate moving. We plan on building a new house so I know will have to pack up this one and put stuff in storage (probably just buy another container for the place) then move it into the new house but I never want to leave this property. When we moved out here found out we had so much stuff we never used made a huge donation to Goodwill might need to do even more.

I know how much of a nightmare it would be moving all our stuff from here.. it would take about 4 semi trucks just to do the equipment, and that's optimistic, then all the odds and ends.. shop equipment, etc... I've moved enough in my life too

3 x 20 = 60. 4 x 24 = 96. 96 + 60 = 156' long by width by height. That is a lot of cubic feet of belongings! And you got more to go!!

You see where all your money went, when you move. It's kinda shocking actually.

On top of that stuff I am taking with me I took three trailer loads of stuff to the Equipment/Misc auction they have at the cow sale. I don't know how many trips to the dump. Three trips to the scrap metal recycle and they came and hauled off an old one ton flatbed and a scrap mower conditioner. It is amazing how much stuff a person gathers up in almost 38 years living in one place. I am sure that leaving after living here that long will eventually hit, but for now I am too busy.

Wacko cowboy, don't donate to goodwill. Use others. Goodwill benefits no one other than the owner. It is a scam, he made 2.3 million last year selling donated clothes. Zero dollars went to the poor or to the public for Philip ranting purposes. During auto correct. Just FYI. Gs
