..rain ? what rain ?..(sorta "outdoorsie.._
« on: May 10, 2019, 11:58:12 AM »
.
I used to say that we've got 3 routes that allow us access from the Back Pasture to the Far Back Pasture  1)  paved surface roads then thru our Far Back Gate.....2)  drive across the Seasonal Creek (during the dry season).....and.....3)  across a Land Bridge which covers a steel culvert thru which the Seasonal Creek flows

"3)  across a Land Bridge which covers steel culverts thru which the Seasonal Creek flows"  -  can't say that anymore

a result of the recent rains (can see on the far side another "slice" is about to fall :


this used to be "a route" - Tractor and Truck are 4wd, but..... :

Time to build a more permanent bridge Id say.
I would if it was me. I wouldnt go back with that set up.

Bridge? Build some ramps on both sides and start jumping the ravine like Evel Kneivel!  :rocknroll2:

no rush to even "think" about doing "something" - will just let it be for now (and I really can't see "doing anything about it" - like building a bridge)

I seen a guy buy an old mobile home frame and make a bridge. Once set across the creek, he just put planks down. And YES,, before some smarty pants goes there, he DID TAKE THE WHEELS OFF.  Lol. 😁

It actually worked great, and was there 20 plus years before the planks rotted off it. It was regularly used by vehicles too.

You got it!  :rocknroll2:

I think we should also paint a Confederate flag on the hood of Tango's tractor, just to make it more authentic!  :wave1:
After all, it's already Kubota Orange!  :th_thicon_lol:

My 1st thought was Catherine Bach in that VERY TINY red bikini.  "Straightning the curves" :afraid4: :thumbsup1:

"Flatning the hills,,,someday the mountain  might git em but the law never will "  :th_thicon_idea:

My 2nd thought was Waylon Jennings.  "Are you sure Hank done it this way " :rocknroll2:
