That's the idea, at least. I'm walking westward from New York City for nine months or so.
If everything goes according to plan, I'll be in Oregon when the clock runs out.
If nothing goes according to plan, maybe I'll end up in Peru or Mongolia or Pennsylvania.
You can read all about the details of my trip
if you're so inclined.
It’s been quite a while since we’ve seen an Awesome Mailbox. Glad there are still some out there…
it’s a John Deere mailbox!!! nice to see you back Matt!
darn…I wanted to be first….and say I called it…..but I am “show” but I still called a awesome mailbox today.
what does it look like??
It’s John Deere Green and Yellow!
very John Deere…
candice and Roxanne..thanks…! I can see it now that I am home. I appreciated the vision you gave me when I could not see it. it is one of the nicest in a wierd rural farming community sort of way.
What’s the pole sticking up out of the box for?
Candice, that looks like a utility pole that’s across the street from the mailbox.
Awww! What a deere little thing!
are we sure it is not a ‘Dear John’ mailbox?
Isn’t this a bit too low???…I think the official height is…well, it above this height…maybe the real mailbox is on the “pole” that is sticking up???…what say you guys???…or is this an optical illusion…
Maybe the mailman is short…
Maybe they put it a little low so kids could climb up and play drive with the tractor-mailbox?
In really rural areas the mail carriers actually use cars to deliver the mail instead of the mail trucks we are all use to in the city. Perhaps the mailbox is set lover to allow the mailperson easy access from the rolled down car window.
Once a John Deer Family…. Always a JD family!
Love the mailboxes!
I can just picture an “Awesome mailboxes” coffee table book by Matt Green
or even a USPS postal stamp series on “Awesome mailboxes across America” using Matt’s pictures
Oh My Gosh how cute! I love this! I really, really love this one. I think it is so adorably cute. Best one yet. Awesome mailbox earns an even awesomer from me! : )
That has the seat and bar (raises up and down the cutter) like the one on our #9 mower. Originally pulled by horses, now we use our 1938 Farmall A with air compression lifts. http://www.sweettractors.com/newpics/fall2006/15.html
