Another beautiful day - decided to walk my property some more before the underbrush greens up - also picking of sticks and limbs along the tram road that runs parralell to the creek that I keep mowed. Here's a couple shots along the way:
As I am getting toward the end of my property I see something - what the heck is this?
I was on this tram road last Tuesday or Wednesday when I was marking my survey stakes and it wasn't there. Huh.....must have something to do with trout season opening yesterday. So hike back to the barn for a hacksaw and vice grips - took care of that chain in short order. Carried the stool and chain past my property line a bit and dropped it there.
As I said in another thread I've lived here for 20 years now and never felt the need for trespassing signs. Now just this weekend I've had to physically block my driveway and now this up on the tram road. When I went back up with my tools I also brought along a post that I pounded in the middle of the tram road - have to wait to get more signs when I go to Tractor Supply on Wednesday.
I just don't know what the purpose was of someone chaining/locking that stool to a tree right there.......
I don't mind anyone fishing the creek along my property as long as they stay off my mowed lawn area. But when I think of what we went through to buy this property and the struggles to pay for it and the taxes all these years it kind of makes me mad. Guess I might be getting grumpy in my older age and sickness but I bought this place for privacy and to be along that beautiful creek. I just don't want to share!
