    Default My Favorite Pastime: Bush Hogging

    I thought I'd share some pictures taken while bush hogging. Still can't believe they pay me to do this, I absolutely love every minute.

    Some are just great scenery of the Appalachian Mountains (Spoken as "Appa latch ins" in these parts) right on the edge of the Blue Ridge portion.

    Anyway here we go.

    Enjoyed the pics! I'm waiting on my brush hog from the dealer. Can't wait to get started! Those land pics are beautiful. I've wanted to visit the Appalachia area in Kentucky. One of these days I'll get my inlaws to take me there. They were from that area before moving to Ohio.

    Here comes the fun stuff

    The first two aren't bad.

    Use the telephone pole above the right loader arm and the T post on the left as a reference for plumb. It didn't feel steep but the pictures say otherwise.

    Here is the same hill before from the bottom and after from the side. Anybody care to speculate how steep that is?

    A nice mid day snack. I probably mowed a million more just like these.

    Just a nasty looking coyote and a cow that came for a visit from another farm.
