    I think I gave my self a hernia today ...

    My son and I went out for a scrap cruz today didn't do to bad stopped at one place back in the bush were alot of folks bring their junk and shoot it up. We picked up some CP towers,microwave,tvs and radios went down the road a little further pulled an old washer out of the swamp. We went home dropped that off did our dump run then went out again picked up a truck load of stuff. The hernia came when we went to load an old fridge this bloody thing was heavy but was worth it bunch of alum in freezer along with copper alum rad. still need to cut the compressor off will have a good truck load of tin Monday. We did find a couple of neat things though one was a Dutch Boy White lead Paint 50 lbs bucket and the other was a I think a fixture off an old outside lamp heavy has a porcelin insulator with the cloth insulation on the wire.
    All this was found in the bush on atv/snowmobile trails illegal dumps.
    Ps. sorry for the boring list lol.

    I wouldnt say its a boring list. There is a road by me that people dump there crap all the time. Its nice to find the stuff but take a pitchure with your phone if possible of your truck/car empty next to the pile incase the police come and try to say you dumpt it. that way if your loading it and they stop you, you can show them the pic of before with it on the side of the road.

    That is a great Idea I keep thinking of how it would look from the view of the DNR or Cop. Thanks
