Oh yeah, Wayne! That's what I'm talking about! An old farmstead with a falling down old barn in the summertime? Nothing better in my mind! It's kind of sad though--one of these days whoever owns that barn will probably knock it down & haul off all that great old wood to the landfill or just put a torch to it. It's far beyond any kind of repair but that wood could live again as something else.
Yup! I agree with that, Wayne. I'm planning a 2 week back roads trip for around mid-March and go down some roads in Wyoming, Nebraska and South Dakota I know of but haven't been on since I was in my 20s. Hopefully some of those old farmsteads and ranches are still there--but I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't.
