Our World – Tractor in the Woods

Out looking for a geocache the other day in the woods and come across this long abandoned tractor out in the middle of nowhere. How does this happen? Does it matter? I love coming across stuff like this.

Check out Our World Tuesday for more things to ponder.

My computer decided to crater on me so I am posting via my IPad which is a wonderful matchine but not quite what I am used to so my posts are going to be a little brief until I get up and going with a new machine. I love what computers can do but hate the machines themselves. Donโ€™t listen to me, Iโ€™m just being grumpy.

    Certainly a surprise to see something like that in the middle of nowhere! Sometimes we come across cars or motorcycles that were dumped after they are stolen and taken for a joyride, but a tractor?

    It does make you wonder how it got there, I seen all kinds of trash during my hikes, once there was an old car. I hope your computer problem is fixed. Take care, enjoy your day! Have a happy week ahead!

    Technology on the fritz always brings out the grumpy in me too. I can’t do my posts on anything other than my laptop – s you’re doing pretty good, Alan! Happy New Year!

    That’s awesome! The kids and I went on a hike last summer and ran across an abandoned bulldozer. I wondered the same things you did – How does this happen? Does it matter? Followed by , I wonder if I could put a geocache here?

    (Turns out the trail used to be a road and the bulldozer would plow it, until the road sloughed off into the river and they didn’t have an easy way to recover the bulldozer. And yes, I can put a cache there!)

    Thanks for sharing! Good luck with the new computer!

    That *is* a cool find and a good question. How? Why? … you did fine on your IPad post, I have had to do that a couple of times for same sort of reason and they never turned out this well. But I hope you get the computer issue solved somehow. I agree with how you feel about them.

    Good question…how did that tractor get there. What’s its story?

    It’s a pain when a computer decides to crash. If I ever start hearing my hard drive start making that clicking noise, I immediately perform a backup. It would be nice if they gave us warnings of what’s about to happen. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It is interesting to consider the Back Stories of things long abandoned like that and in the most unlikely of places. They are eerily beautiful in their state of decay. I’ve always loved a good Ruin of a Building. I feel you on loving what devices can do but frustration in mastering them or even figuring them out. That is why I keep this ancient PC that is older than most of my Adult Grandchildren, they suggest I should donate it to the Smithsonian and Upgrade.

    Whenever I see something like this I also wonder about the story that brought the implement to this place. I also thin.”k, “What a great place for a portrait shoot
