Truck in better days, learning how to be a farm helper, being loaded with cut and dried hay to be drove down to the barn LOL
I know that it seems like a odd thing to be writing a post about, but Dh bought this truck brand new when he finished his post secondary, and it was all bright and new when I meet him, it took us on our first road trip together, it carried us when we went to meet our parents the first time.. We truck camping and drove many of the roads in NWT, it came with us on our move across the artic, to Iqaluit, it is filled with memories from up there, as it drove us slow and steady down the very bumpy road to no where each spring and summer to the camping site to the sand pits and was the lead off of so many walks, hikes and camping trips..
It was flown down with us when we moved to ontario, and it has been our faithful farm truck for the past years, it has hauled home thousands of pds of feed, goats, sheep, ducks, chickens, calfs and most recently pigs.. It has been used as a hay wagon, it has been filled with wild picked fruit, it has taken us down narrow twisted dirt lanes to amazing spots on the local rivers and woods.
In a way it feels like something is ending with its passing, but I know that its not the truck itself that makes it feel that way, its all the good times with my hubby, hounds, friends and family that has happened that makes my heart feel a tug..
Rest in Peace Truck 1997-2012- You never let us down!
