Some things you just gotta shake your head at. I'm outside puttering around and I hear this strange noise. So I look around out on the road and here comes this pickup truck piled high with brush. Now get this, chained behind dragging on the road. and by dragging I don't mean hanging off the truck I mean chained to the receiver hitch being towed is a bundle of big tree limbs.Near as I can figure he was probably heading to the town transfer station where they have a big wood pile. Don't understand why he just didn't pile it up and burn it on site. Betcha the town Hiway boys will be real happy seeing as how they were just out Friday puttin cold patch down. Well I'm gonna get back out to work just had to come on and tell about this.

Around here you'd need a permit to burn and then theres time windows.Couple rules that really get me here is a free brush dump(gotta get a key,to prevent improper use,OK)take yer leaves,branches,limbs,stumps etc BUT if you have a stump ground out or use a chipper to chop up your yard waste,it magically becomes a "processed wood product" and MUST go to the pay by the lb/ton demolition landfill :( Oh and don't throw a broken rake handle or lath tomato stake in with your seasonal yard waste for municipal free pickup.Apparently the 6" chipper won't handle em :)

I did that with a good size pine that was laying side of the road...

Chained one end up to the three-point, and brought it home 3 miles...

Whatcha do is toss a whole buncha empty beer cans in the back and call the thing a christmas tree! Or christmas tree seeds. Whadda they know? lol
Never forget one young acne-plagued cop pulled us over years ago out west - we'd been moving and my buddy & i were towing a 58 chevy with a 60 rambler wagon. Almost there and sure enough. "Why are you towing the car?" (cuz it don't run, ya dip!) "Well see, the one in front has a pretty good motor and the one in back has great brakes"- i kidded. That guy went back and paged thru his book awhile, then strolled up there, announced that he'd have to give me a vehicle check, and sat down in the rambler. FIRST THING he did was stomp on the brake! Gawd we almost died laughing. We were towing with a log chain and apparently needed a safety chain too, so tied it off shorter and doubled it up. There ya go partner! :)

me of some enterprisin young fellers a few yrs back.They were pickin up bagged leaves for a token fee in two local villages,would open the bags and dump em in their stakebed truck.When it got full,they'd drive 10 mi to the other town at 55,arriving with an"empty" truck to service customers there.If they hadn't crossed trails with a trooper after a couple days,they mighta done OK.
