You never know what you will find hiding in the bush. I wrote a few articles on abandoned and forgotten cars trucks and military equipment, I call them barn finds. I sometimes, like now. I will refer to this abandoned military Bren Gun Carrier found, in the woods in Huntsville Ontario as a barn find. It was abandoned, just not in a barn, but abandoned no less… Same but different, Eh
Military Equipment Barn Find, Kinda.
So, as you’re watching another episode of the American Pickers or if you’re a Canadian and watching the Canadian Pickers version, it must cross your mind at least once, where do Do they actually find these things in barns? Now don’t go beating yourself up over this, because through all likely hood, you do not have staff making phone calls like those dreaded telemarketers or people that their sole purpose in life is to follow up on leads, rumors of anything that’s just been remotely sitting around for a long time. Who knows, if you listen to some of those rumors you hear, you might be lucky enough to even find an old Harley Davidson Motorcycle hidden in a barn someplace. RUMORS.

So you don’t believe in a barn find Eh? Here is another one of these true, classic car barn find stories, so trust me, you can still find them, and they’re still out there. Now you ask yourself, how do I know this story is true? Well, this one is from a reliable source, the “Canadian Hot Rod Magazine”. And they believed it enough to put it on their front cover.

So as the story goes, like most, people collect things because it gives them joy may be a reminder of their past, takes you down memory lane. I remember that old rocking chair at gammas house, or in the case of my blog, I have fond memories of my first car, it was a 1955 Monarch Convertible. (Barn Find)
In all my blog posts I talk about going at a situation from a different angle and so this is how I look at hoarding… Doctors and Psychiatrist claim that hoarding is a disorder of sorts; I claim it’s just a bad habit. So . . . could Farmers be classified as hoarders? I think yes and this is a good reason why. I think being human, collecting things is part of our DNA. And one most crucial factor, they have the room. And that makes them a good candidate to join the Hoarders club of America.
So, as the Medical Industry declares people that over accumulate too many items are called hoarders. They even put a $10 label on these people, their called, “Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD).”
I say they just have a bad habit.
