Another big weekend trip. Went and traded my way into a turn key 149 in the Lake Cumberland area in KY. Well,before we left for KY an ad on FB changed from $ 35.00 to Free. Then all kinds of great things started to happen. The gentleman on FB was willing to hold it for me so we packed a took off for KY. Trouble free trip into KY where gas was $ 1.76. Whuuuttt? Filled the tank took off again. Found a 24 hour Hardee's. Not a big deal to some folks but a real big deal for folks who want dinner at 6 AM. Then scored The Little Woman a pound of her favorite beef jerky. Fifty bucks for a one pound package. Made it the sellers place. WOW talk about the backwoods!!! We actually crossed a bridge made from stone slabs with about eight inches of water moving at a pretty good pace. When we got there it started right up drove it on the trailer and the seller started giving me things because I showed up. Extra set of rear wheels and tires and two hydraulic cylinders and another good person willing to help if needed. On the way out that same stone bridge now has ten to twelve inches of FAST water. Glad the trailer was loaded. Really glad the trail was loaded. Ok now on the way home. Bought gas again at $ 1.76 per gallon. Gas is $ 2.03 at home. Trouble free ride home. On the ride home the Jeep got it's permanent nickname. Smokey. We found a Rax on the way home, The Little Woman's favorite sandwich. Again we don't have one here in the big city. Started to reach out to the guy on FB but he beat me to the punch and sent my his address and contact info while we were driving. So we beat feet to his place and I now am the proud owner of a 100% original one owner 526 International Cub Cadet rear tine roto tiller!!!! I know that is not a tractor but it is 100% IH Cub Cadet item. Pictures coming when the sun comes up. 650 miles and awake 24 plus hours. Long day. When I took the trailer back to Uhaul they gave me $ 20.00 bucks more than what was due. I questioned it and they said I gave them $ 60.00. I said no, they said it's on your receipt. I didn't argue with them. I didn't feel up to the discussion. Stopped to grab some groceries and we had some kind of credit on our store card and spent nothing. Not a dime. WOW! Time to go home and try to get back on my sleep pattern before something goes south. Pictures coming when the sun comes up. Now for the technical questions. How do I release my hydro so I can push the 149 by hand? Yes it is a running and driving tractor but I don't want to start it in the garage to move it two feet. I am up awake and working when others are sleeping.
