ANYONE REMEMBER FAR ENOGHT BACK WHEN I WAS FINED AND RAN OUT OF FRANKFORT, IN FOR PLACING MY TINY CABOOSE ON MY PROPERTY ????


Well last week I had to visit my lockbox at the bank so I passed by the property.

Seems that while I can not live on my own property and care for it it is OK to make it into a hobo camp. Junk tires and crap all over. I was really pissed when I found my now 10" maple trees were cut down for campfire wood.

I would have loaded up all resellable items item in that mess. Then burnt the rest. Then posted no trespassing sign's.

I "remember" inasmuch as I read your tale a couple years after the fact when I started lurking around here. It was like reading a horror novel! I could hardly believe the words in front of me. Some folks (particularly those in positions of authority) just have so much stupid packed into their skulls there is little they can do to prevent it from coming out and making a horrible mess.

So, is that a Coleman stove I see sticking out of the junk pile? :twisted:

Good eye Rob. Yep it was one of the old pump up white gas ones. I passed it up and left it behind. I think I have 4 or 5 right now and most are propane.

Yep almost 6 years have passed I have had to call the county sheriff 3 times to defend the property from invasion. It has been used as the city dump annex, an overnight auto motel, and now a hobo camp. Sure would have been nice to have it all sweet with my new setup. The nose high weeds would by now be a very nice lawn and as the property was just annexed to the city that action promised sewer and city water tap in at NO cost to the property owner. I am quite happy where I am but the fact I was not allowed to utilize the property I fought so hard to get still frosts me !

The Caboose paint job looks good.
Can I put up a sign at the hobo camp- that reads- warning, Biohazard, Zombie contagion zone?

I think it was the 2012 fall gathering Verna gave me this little fold up table. I am happy to announce that yesterday 11/27/2020 I actually got it mounted to the wall of the caboose as a lift up and drop down wall mounted table. I mounted it in the office right in front of the garden window. It will make a great extra prep counter as well as a dinning table. A 3 foot section of oak and a piano hinge were the answer. Took me all of 45 minutes to design and install it. This is the 2012 picture and exactly where it wound up. I will snap a new one today. :D
