|Back when the truck was still running.|
Here is the problem, see that rock in the background with the picnic table on it? In 3 weeks my Brother will be getting married on that rock! The camper must be moved....today.
Here is where the hillbilly came out in my Dad & my Husband...First they towed the truck to just in front of the camper (see the cable attached to the tractor with the blue bucket at the extreme right of the photo?)
The cable goes from the tractor, to a pulley (attached to 2 trees) under the camper, under the saw horses holding the camper up, and attached to the truck. As my Father backs up the tractor, it pulls the truck back & hopefully under the camper.
Not that I don't trust these guys...but I seriously had horrible visions of the camper toppling over, and crushing someone...or the dogs. The cable did rub on the saw horses a bit, but the guys just put a block of wood on the cable to weigh it down. They were eventually successful at loading it.
Now we just had to move the truck & camper to its new destination......
For some reason My dad felt the need to go 60mph across the yard....
Then door flew open, and neither of them were the wiser....
My Dad drove up the driveway, & gunned it! Then turned sharp while my Hubby slammed the brakes when we got to the bush. My palms were so sweaty from the whole ordeal...but they did it! (i forgot to take a photo of its new home)
Here is the "rock" ready for the wedding!
