Blame it on the 7MSN

Summer of 2009 arrived and we looked forward to our annual trip to New Mexico. There we visited our newly built house and barn and our brand new friend, Linda, at the 7MSN Ranch, located seven miles south of Mountainair (aka "no where"), New Mexico.

Linda gave us a tour of her 80 acre spread in her Polaris Ranger. The beast was obviously capable of doing an honest day's work on the ranch.

A thought was planted in our heads. A three-passenger-front-seat thought. An obsession. A, soon-to-be, addiction.

Retiring some day soon we have this theory: we must buy now what we will not be able to buy once we're on that proverbial fixed income. Makes sense huh?

Basically: Get it now or forever envy Linda.

Done!



Meet "Ranger". Every workhorse on our place needs a name and "Ranger" sounded more lyrical than "MossyOakBreakUp" or "XP".



What's a serious rig without cup holders and a top speed of 50 m.p.h. ?



A wide body dump bed with a 1000 pound capacity? A one ton towing capacity?



Thank you in advance, Ranger, for your partnership in the future. Thank you for sparing us many back breaking jobs and doing it in style.

You'll always have a stall in our barn and a place in our hearts.

Hey, everybody's visiting Linda this summer!

Nice ride.

Ok, now I'm envious. My Ranger's top speed is 41 mph. Congratulations on the new addition. I assure you, it will pay for itself a million times over down on the ranch.

That looks like fun - and cup holders to hold an evening beverage while riding around. I may have to come visit... :)

How fun that you got to visit 7MSN!

Very nice. Just needs some fuzzy dice. :) Or a magnetic donkey statue for the dashboard.
