Tearing Down The Shed
As I mentioned in my last post, Gary fell in love with the rusty metal shed on his sister and brother-in-law's property. They had no use for it, and wanted it gone. Gary wanted the metal for use in a project here at home, so he was more than willing to tear down the shed. As Pat and Dan cut down some vegetation on the property, Gary got to work tearing down the shed. It took a few hours, but all the metal was salvaged. So were a few pieces of wood that rot and termites hadn't destroyed. There's nothing left on the property but a pile of decayed wood. As you can see, some of the metal stuck out from the back of the van. Those long pieces needed to be cut to size to fit in the van so the doors could close. When everyone got back to the farm, they got to work cutting those long pieces down to eight foot lengths. It was a NOISY job, but they got it done. This was the first time I got to see this pile of metal that Gary was so thrilled about. Personally, I don't see the attraction. It looks like a big pile of junk to me, but I know Gary has a plan for it. Who am I to argue? Most people would have thought that I was a big pile of junk if they had seen me when Gary bought me. He saw something in me worth saving, and I guess it's the same with this rusty metal. I'll be extremely interested in finding out what Gary is going to do with this stuff. After the metal was cut to size, Gary and Dan piled it up on a stand behind the barn. We had another camping stop on our tour, and hauling the metal there and back was pointless. So, there it would sit until we returned from our next leg of the trip. With the van cleaned out and repacked with all of our camping supplies and necessities, we were off to a place that was new to us. Check back soon to find out where.
