Though I’ve not mentioned it, the guys are still working… I’d like to know when there *isn’t* something to be working on. Every third day, they’re making a big loop in the badlands checking the cows’ water. That includes chopping ice on reservoirs and stock tanks and keeping the big generator running that feeds the over 12 mile long pipeline. Then there’s repair on machinery. And reorganizing and moving 30 years of accumulated stuff from another place to home. And feeding the bulls and hauling hay and chopping water for the cows we do have at home. You get the picture.
I’m not around too much of that, so my photos are few.
After a walk around the field, Victoria and I did stop in to see what Brandon was up to. He was pulling out the new portable steel post driver. Vernon wants to shore up some fences with metal posts and as you know from past posts, Vernon can build a lot of fence in the wintertime!
We did a test next to the shop. The ground *is* frozen. Hmmm. The motor runs but there was no “pounding”.
What were we missing?
When all else fails. Read the instruction book. Insert the missing part and voila! It works!
Anyone feel like building fence in frozen ground, just contact Vernon…Find me here!
