I went to a farm auction near Regent ND last month. The trip home was so scary that I am now just able to talk about it and share it with everyone else. The trip up went really good. It all started while at the auction. I wanted to buy this Case tractor buy decided it was going higher than I wanted it to. Well I ended up buying a different make of tractor. I think that is when things changed to the worse. I ended up buying the tractor on the left.

I got everthing I bought loaded and was ready to begin my journey home. It started out fine till I got to the hiway, that is when trouble started. I just turned on the hiway when this cowboy on his horse tried to laso the tractor of the trailer as I went by.

Well it turned out he was waving at me instead of trying to laso me, or maybe he was trying to warn me as to what was ahead????. I almost run into the ditch as this farmer and his family loomed in front of me. I really thought I was in trouble.

I knew I had to be careful. Pa worried me with that smile while holding that pitch fork.

Ma she was one of a kind, very beautiful in her own way.

with that bucket of flowers I didn't know if she wanted my trailer for a bench or the tires for flower pots.

Junior worried me, I didn't know if he was more into sports or if he thought my pickup and trailer would be a nice toy.

I knew I would have to act quickly if I wanted to get away with my load.

Ma and Pa started arguing between then selves while junior was licking his sucker.

I knew this would be my only chance to get away. I fired up the Chevy and put the 8.1 engine and the Allison trany to the test. It was the break I needed because the rest of the trip home went with out anymore problems. I do know that from now on I will have to be more carefull which roads I take when traveling in North Dakota. I always heard there were some big people in North Dakota and they were right. :D :D :D :D

That was close caseman glad you got away OK hate to think you would have lost your truck and trailer and your newly bought tractor to the likes of those giants. Are you sure they didn't follow you home:lmao:

Thanks for the great story and pictures caseman! The amount of detail in the horse and cowboy is especially amazing. Must have taken a lot of time for someone to build those not to mention artistic and mechanical ability.
