Mystery Machine

One glorious spring day a few weeks ago, Lily and I went for a walk along an old abandoned road that we'd never walked before.  It was magical.

I love old roads because if you look carefully, you see the remnants of old inhabitants.  Old house foundations, old gardens, old tires, old barns, old bottles, old bones [deer or cow usually] and once in a while you hit a jackpot discovery of something wild and wonderful.

Like this crazy thing.

We rounded a bend and there it was at the side of the road.

I know you're thinking it, so I'm just going to come right out and say it.

What the heck is it?

I thought at first it was some kind of farm equipment, but now I don't think so.

Maybe road equipment?

Click to blow the pics up, then have at it guessing what it was.  I'd really like to know.


  1. I'm thinking maybe a baler of some kind?

  2. My husband said that it is an old earth mover - like a giant slip scoop. He is into all the old machinery so he should know. :)
