In the Beginning
I went back and scanned a couple of photos we took when we first started clearing land so if the quality is not too good, that's why. I didn't have my digital camera at the time. Being set in my ways, I resisted the digital ones at first but now I grudgingly admit they are cool. In this photo you can hopefully see just how thick the undergrowth was. It was like this everywhere! You really could not walk across the property without a machete to hack a path through with. That's Allen on the dozer. He got to have all the fun with that but I did get to run the front end loader that we got later. That was interesting because with that particular model you have to steer with your feet and you operate the bucket with your hands. It took alot of getting used to. But there is nothing quite like the feeling of power you get from those machines! Arrggg!! We did control ourselves though and did not go rampaging through the whole place.
