A VERY strange sight

7 posts in this topic

I was out sledding on Saturday and I was on the trail near rural Lake Park when I came up on a man city in a very nice Chevy pickup near a set of railroad tracks. I thought it was strange -- he was smiling and waived at me to say he was fine and sitting on the road about five feet away from him was a propane tank.

I thought that was strange too.

Thought about telling somebody (cops) but forgot by the time I got to Lake Park.

Said on the Forum website that the guy was killed by a train Saturday. He was also the guy that owned a business that burned down in Perham just a week ago.

Strange.

I read that story in the Forum today too. Are you sure it's the same guy??

What's the deal with the propane tank??? If you are planning on parking your truck on the tracks when an east bound coal train is coming, what do you need the propane for??

That guy was a sponser here at FM for a while, with his cactus resort.

100 percent sure. I knew him -- sorta from Perham where the in-laws are from.

Talked to the police -- We missed it by 10 minutes -- not kidding.

They do not know where the propane tank is.

Strange.

I just want to say If anybody thinks of doing something like this please,please talk to somebody. life is

short enough. Family ,Friends and if nothing else a nice sunrise on a frozen lake can cure anything. I'm not sure why or how people get to this point but it is not something loved ones can always recognize. So please, if you ever feel like life is to much, ask for help. YOU WILL GET HELP IF YOU ASK FOR IT ,and there is no shame in asking for it.Everybody gets down every now and then.We are here for a reason and that reason is not known to us until God takes us home. My thought's and prayers are with the family.I'm sorry for your lose and you are not alone..........

I agree with you guys 100 percent.

I also feel very bad for the Train conductors. They are away from their families for many days at a time. Can be very tough, i would think. Then you have somebody that does this...

I talked to a guy that knew the train driver -- said he saw his eyes staring at him the entire time ... that would be tough.

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
