Rock Moved 1,300 Miles To New Home
We read with interest the stories about big rocks in the past couple issues of FARM SHOW. Here's a story about a rock that took a long over-the-road journey.
  My husband and father-in-law farmed over this big rock for a few years on our farm in Ashland County, Ohio. It was at plow depth. They finally decided it would be cheaper to dig it out than to keepbreaking plow points. They moved it over next to the driveway. It was the subject of a lot of conversation since it has eye-catching pink granite stripes running through it. We don't know what it weighs but it took a big tractor to move it.
  In 1997, when we moved from Ohio to Ness City, Kansas, we decided to take the rock with us. We loaded it onto a truck and hauled it 1,300 miles to our new home. People around here have never seen anything like it. We decorate it at Christmas with Christmas lights.
  It's great to have a piece of our old place here in Kansas. (Ben & Lue Evel, RR1, Box 92, Ness City, Kan. 67560)
