when my brother and i were young men we moved a
well it was so deep that we had to use two trucks top half on one and bottom on the other we
had to lay them down and had to cap the top of the bottom half so the water wouldn't spill out
after we got it to where were moving it too and instaling it we doicovered the water was no good
in the new hole so we returned it and it was ok

Reminds me of the news article about a couple of guys in Texas buying up old, dry oil wells. Their get rich scheme was to pull up the dry wells, cut them off in 3 foot sections, and sell them for ready-made post holes. Thought they would sell real good!

one summer when i was about 10 i was staying at my grandparents and a thunder storm came up and we were all sitting on the back porch watching the storm and the wind got to blowing so hard it blew my grandmothers brass wash kittle off a fence post in the back yard and it was moving so fast lightning struck at it 3 times before it hit it .this was 61 years ago and i remember it very well.

Back when I was a young feller, my father sent me up into the woods where he had been logging the winter before. My mission was to bring back an iron kettle he had up there to heat up water for the horses. It was spring time and the mosquitoes were some fierce.
I had just started out of the woods when a cloud of mosquitoes came after me. I couldn't out run them so I hid under that kettle. Well, don't you know, them mosquitoes drilled right through that iron trying to get to me. I grabbed up a rock and bent their proboscises over so's they couldn't pull them out.
After a couple dozen of them were attached like that, they started lifting the kettle up. That made it easy for me to carry it the rest of the way back to the farm. When I got home, I went and got a shotgun and killed the mosquitoes.
Ever after that, we used that kettle for a sieve.

Well Bob, I'm not sure what went wrong. I've moved several wells that way and the water's always been good. It's possiable that the water got contaminated when the well and water were on the truck. Did you read and follow the recommended proceedure in "Well moving for farmers and ranchers." It was published in 1938 by the Good Well Water Society Of North America. Even to this day it has much good information on the correct way to move a water well in the northern Hemisphere.

I would also like to add here that it should be eased up out of the ground in a counter clockwise direction too, in the Northern Hemisphere that is. We have others reading here to like Craig down in OZ, can't forget him, down there he will have to ease it up in a clockwise direction. And OH yes, can't forget Patria either, she must be on the equater, says they don't get much snow down there. Well there you just hitch right on to that well and pull it straight up out of the ground.
Later Bob

Them's mighty good points, Bob. I guess it takes a little different technique in dfferent places. Down in P.R., the times I was there I drank rum but I did see 'em move a well once. I can't remember much about though. Between that dark rum and them real pretty girls, I wasn't payin' much attention to water well movin'.

Anybody with any experience KNOWS the best way to move a well to to dehydrate the dang thing first. MUCH lighter, don't have to worry about leaks.

When ya get it to the new location, ya just rehyrate it, and Viola!

Sheesh. Gotta tell you youngun's how ta do everything...

Well, now, that is a DEEP subject.    Posted 10-25-2002 at 14:12:16       [Reply]  [No Email]

IF BS was snow you,de be a regular blizzard

Speaking of blizzards, I'm afraid that the logging above the timberline is all done for the year. Since Killer done let my gnus run over the cliff to their sad destruction and the spruce beavers ruint my boughten stumpage, I do believe I'll head north for the next few months. I'm staking my reputation and my life's savings on a team of muskoxen. Next winter, I'll be ready for some serious logging.
