If they have that much stuff stool to move, I'd get further in front of a potential problem ...

Already looked into it and planning for it. The county dump is about 20 miles away. I have looked into getting a dump trailer from the rental place. I figure with a loader tractor and a dump trailer it wont take too long. The question left to be seen is can I do it in one day or will it take more.

More.

Without going into the gory details, we moved or farm twice within six weeks this time last year.

It always takes more.

I was down to the ranch today. Happy to report that progress was being made. Garbage being hauled off. Things looking better. Less horses than before. They were meeting with the brand inspector today because more of them leaving. Their daughter and SIL closed on a place in town which is clearing out their big storage unit so Mom and Dad can put their stuff their. Things are looking up.

On the other hand I stopped at the DMV to find out what it is going to cost register our vehicles in Oregon. OUCH..... Oh well it is only money. I just wish I had more of it about now.

Well the horses are all gone. I had to go down and sign a paper so the sellers could get their money from escrow. I thought I would be meeting the realtor to sign but he called shortly after I left home. He also has a ranch and had to spend the day riding in the mountains. He said that he would leave the paper with the sellers. I knew the sellers would be gone so we arranged for him to leave it in the shop for me to find. So about 3 hours later I was driving through La Grande (about 60-70 miles from Durkee) and he called me. He had left the paper but wanted to warn me about the dogs. Seems the sellers two dogs were biting his tires as he pulled in and as he left. He had to arm himself with a pitchfork to get into and out of the shop. I picked up an old 2x4 along the road. I pulled up right close to the shop door. One step from the car door to the shop door. I was glad I had the 2x4. Dogs bit my tires too. I was going to check out some other things while I was there but decided against it. I won't go back now until I begin moving in on the 25th. I hope they don't leave those dogs...... well maybe not. I know what would happen if they did leave them.

Getting closer and closer!! He coulda done you a big favor while he had the pitchfork out.........

One of my neighbors has a bunch of yard dogs like that..& they raise mortal cain every time you pull in their yard. I just keep honking the horn til someone comes out and corrals all those dogs. They do keep the cat population down over there tho...

I poked around in the shop while I was in there. It was emptied out. Not cleaned up. Judging from the amount of mouse droppings they could have used a few less dogs and maybe a cat or two. There is a pretty fair snake population there. A few less mice and maybe there won't be as many snakes attracted.

I went for a quad ride with some friends yesterday. We were trying to find the back end of my new place. We never got there but I think I found out how to get there. The two ridges in front of this shot are on my place. The hill to the right is too and that is where we were trying to go. The green irrigated ground closest in this picture is my place. The house is hid behind the ridge. The elevation at the house is 2,700. I am around 5,000 where I took this picture from.

Beautiful Dave. Having grown up in SW Idaho, I can really appreciate the beauty of your place. I love the high desert mountains.

I was born near there in Kennewick many years ago.

On our way up the hill we went past a group of Bighorn sheep. One looked like a decent ram. The other 4 were youngsters. Certainly within shooting range but a bit far for my camera.

Those sheep might be some possible money makers for you less of course you are a kind soul and would let me hunt for free. ;-)
