There is a stretch of land near my house that has recently—as in maybe five years—has been turned into a wildlife refuge. I’ve explored most of it via the few man made trails and many of the animal trails. I’ve realized most of the area must have been previously owned, and farmed. Quite often, I encounter completely abandoned farm equipment. Always makes me wonder what happened that day to make the machine stop, and moreso, what happened to make it never work again.
