Wish I could have got to that pile. I bet there's at least one pair of corner poles just waiting to be converted to awning poles. Most of the time when those canopies get destroyed by wind it's only the flimsy top frame that suffers. The corner posts usually fare pretty well. I've made several sets of awning poles from them.

I can't knock the guy for his little rig, it seems to serve his need's and that's all that matters. The only thing i would do different is add another axle. Good job guy!

Tobacco Chewing Avon Lady

Wish I had a photo but so far the most interesting person I met was a tobacco chewing Avon lady. We had been watching a young couple in the site next to us trying to put up a tent and after a while, the young woman showed up at our camper door with an injured finger looking for a band aide. Of course I let her come in and sit down and our door was standing open as it was a nice day and while putting a band aid on her finger she said " i suppose you dont allow chewing in here" and with that, she turned her head and spit out a wad of chew outside lol... Then later in the day while sitting in my screen room I noticed her going around to vehicles parked at campsites and putting something under the windshield wipers. She worked her way over to us and handed me an Avon catalog!... You meet such a variety of people out camping. I told my husband I thought of asking her if I she should put my lipstick on before or after I put my chew between my teeth and gums...She was a nice gal, just a surprise...

I have a pretty good friend and I worked with him for several years. He was raised on the family farm and his mother died while I worked with him. I never got the privilege of meeting his mother(50-60 miles away). He talked about her some and I knew she was old....died at about 85. Anyway. One day we were talking and he said something to make me figure out that she dipped snuff. The real stuff...not this Redneck stuff. Snuff. I was like wow. Who would have thought?

I still have about 10 of the "Sweet Garrett Snuff" glasses my great grandmother (born 1869, died 1968) used all the years I knew her. Most we've used for small orange juice glasses, but one still has some of the old label around it.

When we went hunting, we had to get her a small limb off of a certain tree (I've forgotten which tree) that when torn off was in the shape of a tiny 'bone'. She used that to dip the snuff.

It was a common 'vice' for old women back when. At least I never saw her sniff it up her nose! LOL

Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. When my parents got divorced my dad lived in their travel trailer at a nearby campground for a few months until he worked out somewhere to live.

I can understand that, but this setup does not look very stable.

Were we go a guy pulled a utility trailer with high sides and picked up all the broken screen rooms, chairs, etc and leave after a week with a large trailer load. I assumed he did it for the aluminium.

Understandable but not sure I would be thrilled about having to be next to that mess.
