Found On Road Dead… Literally.   13 comments

A closeup image of an old rusty Ford near High Point and Hanging Rock, North Carolina


While Susan was taking a Saturday class, I took advantage of a beautiful day to do some backcountry cruising in an area I have never visited before. Driving along a secondary road between High Point, NC and Hanging Rock State Park (where The Last of the Mohicans was filmed), I almost dislocated my neck when I saw a suite of old trucks and farm equipment tucked into the woods. Too good to be true?

I came about and went back to the spot, which lay along a private drive. I pulled into the drive and checked the few houses there, but no one seemed to be around for permission.  Up in an oak grove just off the main road, there were multiple specimens of trucks, farm vehicles, and rusty goodness. They looked to be set up in some sort of display, so I figured that the owners wanted people to enjoy their collection.

So, I did.

I had my way with these beauties, and hope to present them in turn in the upcoming days.
