Of course when I read the title and description the first thing I thought of was driving lines when I am driving my horse, but it is supposed to be controls of an inanimate object. Drat.
Luckily theres an abundance of tractors and all sorts of machinery around here to take the wheel of. I come from a small town where a traffic jam is four cars behind a tractor. Quite literally the other day as I rushed off for my last exam and got stuck behind a massive John Deere with a plow on the back. You learn to appreciate big machines here. Living in a farming community theres never a shortage of large tractors, backhoes, lawn mowers you name it. Big machines is what it's all about, and corn and wheat and cows and manure and stuff.
This beast however has not moved in over a year. It's been sitting outside in the rain. The rusting bright blue paint sticks out like a sore thumb yet kind of compliments the colour well.
This isn't a tractor but an old beat up Woody's Jeep. My dad tells me stories of him and his friends finding one abandoned in the woods at their hunting spot, fixing it up and using it for a few seasons.
Who can tell me what this controls? I know someone who would know for sure. I'll give you a clue, it can dig big holes and might be related to a monster
Eugh look at the oil all over the shifters. It's got a bad leak there there was oil all over the ground in the barn.
Oh...It's a Ford. No wonder.Isn't burning oil Ford's signature new car smell? Don't kill me, I joke, I joke. Seriously I drive more Ford tractors and cars than I let on. I just like to yank you Ford peoples chains thats all. You lot are just too easy to get going.
Of course it wouldn't be tractors and machines without a JD. Green and yellow for the win!
It's a medium sized tractor that turns on a dime. I love driving it and cutting grass with the stock shredder except the other day I caught my hat on a tree and it tossed it right under the shredder and chopped it into smithereens! I need a new hat I haven't got any more baseball caps :C Mine have all been lost when I bale hay or they have nasty sweat stains on them.
So there you have it, a peak at some big machines and controls. Gee this pretty much turned into a post about farm machinery didn't it?
