Rust and Thorns – The Rear

Thanks to you who identified this truck as an International Harvester from this post.  That was the front of it – today is the rear.  As we were driving along trying to find our way back to the highway to get home from our Hocking Hills trip, I saw this creature from a distance standing alone in a field surrounded by thorns.  I wanted to name it Aurora 😉

        The pipes on the one side, control box on the other side, and the bottom of the tower laying down on the truck. There where probably more sections to the tower when the truck was operating.

    Cool old well drilling truck. It looks like it came of work one day and was just left there. Great capture. Cheers

    Cool truck… love trucks! Well drilling… no clue! Feeling better? Did you have that hot buttered rum??

      No rum yet and still not feeling all that hot…my patience is wearing thin and I’m sick of the effects of the meds 😦 I’ve got stuff to do!!!
