A Rhino Day

No pics from today, but here is one from a couple of years ago when we still had our beloved Murphy with us. He was certain that the Rhino was all his...

Yesterday it was 72° here, and today it was 65. Very strange, but I'm not complaining. Neither were the dogs. We hadn't had the UTV out of the shop for a couple of weeks and today I started it up and the dogs and I did some work around the place with it, toting and lugging stuff here and there.

Both the Shorthair and the Boston love "their" Rhino. The Boston sits up front in the right-hand seat and Emma jumps in the back to ride. No matter if I'm going to move it only a few feet— they have to jump aboard and go along or they feel deprived.

Dogs smile. They really do. And if I want to make mine smile all I have to do is fire up our Rhino.

Hello Sir - Thanks for your interesting blogs. If you have time down the road, I would be interested in hearing more about the small travel trailer shown in one of your earlier pictures. Thanks, Mike

Hi, Mike--

It's all fiberglass with all the conveniences. I call it my "dirt yacht" cuz it's built more like a small boat than a trailer. They're made in Texas and there are no dealers. You deal directly with the factory. Send me your address and I'll have them send you materials.

Those are useful vehicles. I use my truck in a similar fashion, but due to the size of the F250 I'm limited in ways you are not with your Rhino.

The Rhino is my vehicle-of-all-work. Doubt I could get along without it. I even go visiting in it if the weather is OK and the destination is not more than 25 miles away.

Lousy mileage though: between 10 and 12 MPG.

So that's the gun scabbard you finally settled on. I might have to do the same.
