The D6 Traxcavator and some more backyard elk.

We got the D6 Traxcavator running today!
(kinda large file of it running) Sorry, making it smaller is beyond my pay scale.

It's been a few years & it resented the neglect. We donated it to the Yamhill Historical Society and thought it would make a better gift if they could somehow load it up on something as opposed to cutting it into many pieces. It weighs over fourteen and a half tons, so it pretty much has to move under it's own power to get to the road. Hopefully it won't sink in the Lazy Farmer's hay field on the way there.

Things like this keep my sanity. That and staying away from the news media.

Maybe I should edit out that

piece of blue baler twine on the right?
