Would this be considered a Class C?

"C" for cabin maybe. It looks like itís tied to the truck with ratchet straps. Did you see it in Arkansas? Maybe they are taking it to deer camp?

Smarty is officially a farm vehicle now! I went to Tractor Suppy about 20 miles from here. I thought I was buying straw (to mulch the asparagus and raspberries) that was baggged in plastic. I didnít take a tarp with me. But all they had was bales of straw fresh from the wheat fields of eastern Washington. Oh, what the heck, itís only straw.

I thought it would fit behind the seats, but it was too big, so I laid the passenger seat down and it slid in beside me. I made the mistake of taking the key out of the ignition. HUGE mistake. The key inserts between the seats and straw dropped into the ignition. Thatís a stupid place to put it. Well, then the key couldnít go in far enough to start the engine. Luckily they had a can of air that I was able to spray the chaff out and she started. I may never take the keys out again. Who would steal Smarty, anyway. My poor abused little car. Do you think I'll ever get it all out?

Sooner or later Richard will post the pop of the great event. But to be sure the story dosn't get twisted I thought it best to tell what happened.
Back when Di and Larry first abandoned the other Arkies, purchased land and moved to Florida a list was started on Di's refrigerator door. This list was of guest to come and visit them at their new digs. This was at the Little Rock GC and Mary and I was first on the list!
Di posted a picture of the list which caused Richard and Ann to wager a catfish dinner over who would visit them first. Well Richard won, and last night I was true to my word, and paid for his and Ann's meal.

Tim= Trustworthy, Honest, Friendly, and Reverant to name a few!

Good ideas! I wish there was a Smart pickup! Now that would be my ideal toad, fer sure! Hmm, I wonder how much pea gravel it could haul? I really miss my 1980 Nissan pickup. Iím not auto mechanical savvy enough to buy a used one, but I sure miss the mini pick-up trucks. Today all pick-ups are HUGE, EXPENSIVE and too nice to use like I do.

Our "Smart Pickup" is a Chevy Colorado. It is about the same as the GMC Canyon.

I have seen several this size as toads in different places, and they seem to work well. It is just right for us.

I call ours the "Mighty Mouse"...

I just noticed the Corvair station wagon in that photo I posted, then remembered the photos were taken at a car show, not the Walmart parking lot...
I was wondering if we could buy that structure and get it delivered to Barb's Notaranch - sure looks like a tiny house to me...

We own 2006 National Dolphin 36.5 ft we tow a 2004 Honda CR-V. We too rough it without Dishwasher, or outside Tv, shoot we even have to assemble our satellite dish. Life is tough but we struggle through Ha! But we love seeing the country meeting new friends and a few characters along the way. So we count ourselves as truly blessed. We do feel like Rv mutants as well.

Yep! leaf blowers are good for that type of job.

For those not in the know - when I retired and Earlene was working she asked me to clean the house and get all the dog hairs and dust out. I opened all the windows, fired up the leaf blower, and cleaned house. Worked for me.

Go for it Barb.
