If you don't have all your boxes moved to the new house when we get to Texas, we can use our truck to help. Sort everything out and mark the boxes you want and we can move them. Leave what you don't want at Layne's house for the big garage sale! Oooh! Marv can sit in front with the tables of stuff in his overalls! Maybe tourists will think they are getting deals on antiques! LOL

Where to store the boxes you are keeping in the new house you ask? Layne's room!
:lol::lol::lol::lol:

Whew! I’m back home! I pulled the 16’ stock trailer 476 miles today. I took highway 7 out of Crockett to I-45, to just below Dallas, cut over to I-20 on Highway 287. Took a bunch of twisty roads outside of Weatherford to my destination. Their barn was down a steep slope with loose gravel and a small space to get turned around. Uhhh… F250, heavy Diesel engine, 16’ trailer, I suck at doing all things trailer. Nope. Staying up here in the driveway! So he took his little truck and small trailer to the barn, we loaded up 2 ewes, he got a running start and made it to the top. He backed up to my trailer and the two ewes calmly walked into my trailer.

I started for home. My AC ran hot, no cold air! So I put windows down, turned radio up loud and blew it down the Interstate.

Got home, backed trailer up to the young ewes pen, ran extensions of 2 half hog panels to make a chute and they followed me into the pen.

Notice the aerobic sprayer? I did not back over it. It is unharmed and still works! Neither did I hit the cow panel pen. I might be getting better at this backing up.

This is BTX 19-01 their first lamb. She is 3 years old.

Neither one was interested in posing for a photo shoot. Hot, tired, their hair was messed up and wind blown, supper was served and that’s all they cared about.

Dogs had to do the meet and greet.

I left at 6:30, got back at 5. That’s the farthest I’ve taken the trailer. Kinda proud of myself.

A year ago, it would have been me and BJ. Now it’s me. We were a team, drawing off each other’s strengths. He was perfection with a trailer. Why would I mess with that? I’m gaining confidence and getting better with the trailer. Today was a big deal for me.

It is a true art... to be able to move a trailer about.

Very impressive work!!! :clap

What is that??

It goes to the septic system. It is a home version of a small treatment plant. The old passive systems are being phased out. A good bacterial system and chlorine tablets for the final treatment before clean water is sprayed out. There is no smell unless someone isn’t found their system right.
