Long Overdue and Long Gone

Long Overdue and Long Gone

This post was planned for early January 2019 but the travel schedule and other unplanned events have totally goofed up getting this one out… I came across the photo collection and today finally getting it DONE. I think it’s worthy and that our readers will enjoy it.

While visiting family in the near Boston area (Fitchburg, MA) we set out on a very brisk walk up the road to do so some exploring….about a mile up the well-worn road we came to fenced pastures, farm ponds, old dilapidated barns. Basically rural countryside that was worthy of the effort. As we continued on up past the farm another half mile we noticed a few pieces of history…

We climbed the fence like watermelon thieves and quickly cut through the woods and pasture to get a better look….


We hope you enjoy looking at these relics from an earlier time….wondering if these are all earlier possessions from the prior generations of this same farming family… let us hear from you.

    I love looking through auto graveyards! There are stories to be told. Be careful as they usually include a large mean German Sheppard.! That’s why they say, “mean like a junk yard dog!!”

    Where is Fitchburg Mass? I couldn’t find it on the map?? What in the world were you doing camping in a junk yard! Well I guess I’ve seen it all now and I have to ask, did you do any fishing? How big was your campsite? Did you boon-dock or hookup? Did Red take any Polaroids or just you ? Just kidding, you have to wonder what stories that could be told from those old relics. As usual thanks for the tour and I actually did find Fitchburg on the map!
    Keep em coming.

      Your Grandma’s and a few PaPa cars and trucks as well! We thought they were pretty cool, especially the real old truck. Thanks for following along with us. CP

    Interesting! Are you sure you didn’t detour through Cuba? Cars/trucks of about the same vintage!
