Man I hate hearing that.  Hope things turn around in life for you for the better.  Glad to hear you still want to keep in touch.  Myself and others will be around if you need to talk.

Don't give up, just change your trajectory if you need.  Always strive to take care of yourself!

Mightyraze it's is very hard when u draw a disability check and that is all the income I have but the bills is taking every dime I git and barely make endmeat and I can't find work or nothing else And I have to go out hunting and fishing to put extra food on the table for my kids an woman cause and she down and can't work so I'm the only that is paying the bills cause she can't work where she fractured her neck .so she layed of work until she heal up and i cant find no work or nothang cause I draw a disability check and my back limits me to how much i can work because years ago i had a wreck that destroyed my low back and that why I draw a disability check. And I don't have no one I can ask for help and not even my on family will help.

That sounds like a rough time man sorry to hear that for all of you but giving up isn't going to make things better, you have everything you need to build a rig aside from front ATV tires don't you? Then if it does the job it gets you futher out for hunting

I get it man. Been in a very similar place- fought off some severe depression last year, got out of an abusive relationship, lost an old friend, my will to keep going was bone dry. I’m no theologian but I’ve always suspected that for some reason or another the universe tests us. I read a book once that talked about some of the most wrong quotes ever said, a couple that stood out to me was a record producer that commented on the Beatles early career “groups of guitars are a dying trend, nobody will like this sound.” Or something to that effect. A French general who said that “airplanes are interesting toys with no military value.” And my personal favorite was King George III, who wrote down, “nothing of importance happened today.” On July 4th, 1776.

Just because it’s hard now doesn’t mean it always will be, have faith in yourself and be creative and it will all work out fine. I know @RCG lived in a plywood cabin for a year while he was getting back on his feet.

At $50 a tractor you could potentially make a little coin if there's anything decent hiding in there!
