A "quick?" trip to Tractor Supply here in Michigan!

Postby Dale Finch » Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:34 pm

Driving around this area of Michigan (Newaygo), you get a chance to do some self-evaluation...what we want from life, where we are going, etc. This image reminded me of a road trip after college graduation (1972) in my VW Micro-bus (imported from Europe). I was always being passed on the highways as I puttered around the Eastern US. I felt like an underpowered snail...until, that is, I was in the Amish area of Pennsylvania on a local narrow road and was "stuck" behind a horse-drawn carriage. I had lots of time to ponder how things in life are relative, and settled down to the relaxing pace!

This was at the TSC in Freemont, MI. I loved the little trailer he was pulling!

I like how TSC provides a hitching post.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I think I'd paint that carriage any color but black. Talk about an oven!
I wonder if the trailer would be counted as a tandem trailer?

Just spent a week in Detroit area. Sorry to admit I did not make it to a TSC. No buggies seen either. But was a fun trip.

I've never seen an Amish buggy that wasn't black. Vern
