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.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?

      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.

      Yep that's us... Cabin #2 and #3...  You part of the other group we chat with up there??

      Thanks for the reply.  Have had much time for research this year. Do you usually stay at pine tree cove?

      People who enjoy the North Shore and Lake Superior and want to help shape its future are encouraged to consider volunteering to serve on the Governor’s Council on Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program.  This is a citizen advisory group that sets grant funding priorities, reviews grant applications and recommends projects to receive funding through the Coastal Program. All funded projects benefit Minnesota’s coastal area. The 15-member council is made up of three representatives each for Carlton, Cook, Lake and St Louis counties and three at-large positions that can be filled statewide. There are ten available seats on the council. The council meets about five times per year at various North Shore locations. Council members receive travel reimbursement and serve 60 to 70 hours per year while fulfilling a two or three year term. All adult Minnesotans are eligible to serve. Anyone interested can apply online at the Minnesota Secretary of State website or download a paper application. For more information about the Coastal Program’s work and service area, see the program webpage. Questions about the Coastal Program and application process can be directed to Amber Westerbur, Coastal Program manager, at 218-834-1445 or amber.westerbur@state.mn.us.
