I’ve seen this same scene in several places throughout central and eastern Washington. A modular home of some sort, pulled by a rig, is abandoned in a vacant field, rig and all (though the rig can’t be seen in this photo).
If only the house were left to the elements, it would make some sense. Likewise, if it were just the rig – we see that quite a bit. But to have both tractor and trailer/house abandoned together seems to be a double failure.
If the house was undeliverable for some reason, couldn’t the rig unhitch and drive away? Or if the rig broke down, couldn’t another be called to complete the job?
It just doesn’t make sense.
