So far outside the box you can't even see the box from here.

Not much going on at the homestead. We got a few more inches of snow overnight and it didn’t get warm enough to melt at all. This is the winter that keeps on giving. Seven months of snow so far. Oh well. Rumor has it that spring is coming, but you can’t believe everything you hear.
In other news I discovered someone I never want to do business with. My lovely wife and I saw a nice little truck with a for sale sign on it at a small used car dealership. We were running errands and had limited time so we didn’t stop to talk with a salesperson. That’s just as well.
When I talked to the guy on the phone it was a truly unpleasant experience. His main concern was that I show up today with cash in hand. It was all I could do to get the actual specifics about the truck. The truck was actually pretty close to what I was looking for. However, the salesman was rude, unwilling to negotiate, and kept asking over and over if I had the cash. He wanted to sell right now. That pop up red flags for anyone else?
Good thing I’m in no hurry to buy. I don’t respond very well to high pressure tactics.
There was another vehicle that could have worked to tow the boat. The downside? It was boring as unsalted crackers. I don’t want to be too picky. However, that car looked like something driven by a blue haired lady going down the fast lane of Florida 95 at 45 mph with the left directional on for 50 miles. Even I have to have some standards.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
