Tag: pop-up camper

Quick run today. Got here at 1:15 pm pulling an empty ATV trailer. I parked this to the southeast of the pole barn to keep it out of sight from the road but in view of the cameras, then drove down the road to Lynn and Carol’s. Lynn passed away last month after a long battle with cancer, but he made it years longer than his doctors expected him to and spent the majority of them at home and doing what he loved. I hope he was buried with at least one of his many caps.

Carol will be moving to a retirement home and they’re selling the property, so we need to get the pop-up camper and pontoon boat out of their pole barn. I took the afternoon off of work to handle this today as temps are warming up and I’d much rather move things around in snow than mud. I didn’t see anyone home but the pole barn door was open so I hooked the truck up to the pop-up and hauled it back. It just fits in the pole barn.

When I went back for the pontoon, one of Lynn’s sons was there and Peter was pulling in their driveway on his tractor. He’s helping them clear some debris from the back half of the land. If our new neighbor ends up half as decent as Peter, we’ll have it made. With Peter’s help, I rolled the pontoon out and into the driveway and coupled it to the truck. I pulled this next to the ATV trailer where it’ll have to stay until we find some other storage solution as it’s too big to fit through our pole barn doors. I headed back out around 2:00.

Sunday

Hannah and I drove in around 5:30 pm with a truck bed loaded with tools and Puckaweekend goodies. The whole Thelen clan just spent a long weekend up in Presque Isle, but the boys have school tomorrow and Lyssa works. I, however, have Columbus Day off. As soon as we got back to Oshkosh, I quickly unpacked from PI and loaded up for Puckaway.

Lynn needs more hats.

Both Red and my dad were here waiting for me. Red and I work in the same office, so he’s got tomorrow off as well. He’s been here since 2:00 pm and has been busy mulching leaves all afternoon in the surprisingly high mid-70s temperatures. My dad got here shortly before me as he came straight down from PI. I helped Dad unload a snowblower from the back of his truck and rode with him to our neighbor Lynn’s property to store the pontoon boat for the winter. I’m glad that Dad was the one backing it in. While my trailering skills aren’t bad, there’s only about 3 inches of clearance on either side of the garage door when backing that big boat in, and I sure wouldn’t want to be the guy to scrape up our helpful neighbor’s garage. Lynn was there and I got to finally meet him. We hung out and talked for a bit, but Dad wanted to get back to Oshkosh and was on the road by 6:00.
