Double Or Nothing!

My father owns a hopper bottom grain bin manufacturing company in North Dakota, and during a particularly busy summer a few years back, he asked me if I’d be comfortable delivering some of the smaller bins. I jumped at the opportunity. He informed me that I’d be using his ‘05 F350 for the deliveries. I wasn’t entirely confident that it could be done, as I’d only ever seen grain bins being hauled by massive semis. The power that machine possessed became clear the moment I pulled onto the highway on my first delivery. I delivered a handful of bins with ease. Then my father, as he often does, raised the stakes. “A farmer down in Kirby, Wyoming needs 2 bins, and he needs ‘em now. You’re doing a double haul!” he exclaimed. Again, I argued that it couldn’t be done. “It’s a Ford!” he replied.

I watched the ranch foreman’s jaw hit the dusty Wyoming ground as I drove onto the work site pulling two bins at 12 1/2 ft. in diameter each, and slowly began to back them into place. “How the heck did you haul two bins all the way from North Dakota behind a pick-up?” He asked dumbfounded. “It’s a Ford.” I replied.
