An RV (cowboy style)

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey

In this case RV would not stand for Recreational Vehicle but perhaps Rest Vehicle for a cowboy or cowpoke. I’m not sure if this was once an old chuckwagon used on cattle drives or just a “mobile home” for a cowboy out with his cows. It sits on the property that adjoins our one parcel on the west, so yes we were technically trespassing to visit it. We first found it years ago and it was in much better condition then. Now the packrats have taken it over as their residence and it’s basically not long for this world. It’s sad to see it fall into such disrepair. But, the the land has not been used for some time as the fence surrounding it fell down years ago. I wanted to capture it in a few photos before it no longer exists.


It’s situated at the edge of their stand of trees, looking somewhat sadly and yearningly (at least to me) out to the open spaces where it once was useful.

It’s wheels aren’t turning any more over the open prairie.

It sits neglected. No longer of any use to anybody but the small rodents that now call it their home.
