Good to see one at work. It gives me hope and inspiration after the skinned knuckle week Dad and I have had (mostly Dad.) Luke

Where do you take the leaves and why?

In this state burning leaves is not allowed. I remove the leaves from around the house and garage and haul them to a hole on the property where sand was removed circa 1932 to pave a road in front of the property. Rather than buy paper bags and fill them with leaves it is an excuse to use the AA truck. See also Gathering wood...on this web site. This truck was a former fire truck; stripped before I got it thirty years ago.

Its good to see the old girl is still being use, and not setting in a building looking pretty. We need to see more of this.

Really nice photos, and thanks for posting them. I like to imagine that truck with the spares down on the ground, hooked up to an Arps bogie axle, and big mud grouser tracks all around. I'll bet it could haul the same load of big rocks as is the pile of leaves. Thanks again, and best wishes for a wonderful Thanksgiving to you and family. fb
