Looks like fun huh?

Here are some working trucks I've found on the internet. Maybe theyve been posted before but worth seeing again.

That is precisely why some people should not be allowed to work with metal.

LOL, yea. It would make the drive from town out to the patch a little interesting.
This truck has since been sold (well, at least its not sitting out where it was anymore)

My 54 F-100 doesn't do much work anymore since I bought my 55 F-350 flatbed. But I put her to work today. I run a soccer camp for our club. It starts next week, kids 5-14. Each camper gets a T-shirt, a water bottle and a ball. So I took the ***** and the water bottles over to our fields in Old Betsy. It was light duty and nothing that could scuff or scratch the bed. I am expecting 85 campers. So there were about 85 ***** in the bed.



And while I was there I mowed 3 of our 4 fields. I mowed them all on Thursday, but central PA has gotten so much rain the grass is growing like gangbusters! It would have been too high by Monday. The 4th field I'll get Monday after camp....

So, you're working harder than the truck, right?

Hi Abe,

I hope You counted the ***** after the trip to the soccer-field. Did all the ***** make it to the field or how many are on the run on Central-PA-roads? Nice job! I bet, the kids will have a wonderful camp!

Thanks, guys. We had a good session this morning. We ended up with 92 campers ages 4 thru 14. I had to order some more *****. And the weather looks good this week after a couple weeks of rain.

Working truck in the rain

I was trimming bushes for an widowed friend of mine yesterday and today. Today I had to trim two wysteria bushes/vines. I had a window of 115 minutes with no rain according to AccuWeather. Well I didn't get it done before it started raining again.... This has been the wettest summer in central PA since 2003....

So before I ran to the landfill I took a pic of my working truck in the rain.

I sure love my truck. Mowing our yard. Or what’s left of it. We have someone looking at it Sunday. Also loading some stuff out of the garage. Gonna move a little bit at a time until the house sales.
