|The scrappers only brought a pickup truck, but they got the job done.|
The previous owner of our property used to raise feeder calves, and he had installed what seemed like miles and miles of 5-strand barbed wire cross fencing, some with added sheep fence for good measure, throughout the woods. Big Daddy spent a good deal of the last two years taking it down. Here is just some of what he has to show for his efforts.
|Rolls and rolls of barbed wire from the fences Big Daddy took down. |
The ones leaning against the wall are what he's keeping.
|Here's the first load ready to head out. Don't worry - that galvanized steel tub is |
split down one side with several holes in the bottom.
Here is a sampling of items they take home with them for sorting when they aren't working. They also took an old TV, and they'll separate out the electronics and any other usable components. They took several 100-ft or more extension cords that were cracked and taped, and they'll strip those for the various wires inside them.
|The scrappers will look at each of these small items and sort out any copper, steel or aluminum, |
and she'll be looking for items that might interest any collectors she knows.
|Finally, we bid adieu to the pickup truck shell that used to mark the location of The Old Dump.|
