I rarely look at (FREE THINGS ONLY) thread but the last couple times here I wondered why a Free Box Fan generated so much activity. Well I started reading and I must say, grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif! Leno or Letterman would have a field day with this....

20 inch Box Fan


I may be missing something, but I really don't get why every one is getting all worked up about a person that happens to have a great personal interest in specifically-sized square enclosures? So what if he or she likes 20 inch boxes? Some people might call me a fan of odd things, too. And so what if they happen to apply stickers to themselves; alot of people wear non-comformist attire. Easier to remove than a tattoo, anyway.

Why is this so funny?

RECAPPING....

Ok well it has lost a few stickers and gain a few along its travels.. When the box fan first came around, it was listed as..The fan has a Unicorn, Teddy bear and a Kansas City Royals baseball club sticker on it.

Then it was located at these Coordinates from WCS at

44° 47.0188' N 93° 3.3234' W

and Deitz did a search only to find it was in the middle of a garbage dump..

From there it ended up on my front steps but the next day it was gone.. And No stickers but it does have a nice dent on the right side, oh and it doesn't have a handle either

..

Lisa thought maybe Jameson might have taken a midnight run to claim his next restoration project

But LABS4ME Made a note....enclose is the following

Note to self...

Stock up on broken-down, used 20" box fans... there's a definite market for them in Minnesota!

Then Bobby Bass had a sighting

Was passing the time on Main street here at Lake Iwanttobethere. I was doing some window shopping when I noticed a pale weathered orange VW van slowly driving down main street in my direction. It was all done up in painted flowers and green leaves. It reminded me a lot of my long forgotten past youth. It caught my attention not because of the loud muffler or the vast number of bumper stickers and other stickers which were covering rust spots. But it was what was in the back window as it passed me. There appeared to be a 20 inch box fan pressed up against the glass, it was missing a blade and it sent a chill down my back as I could almost hear it crying out for help. I turn to see if anyone else had seen the van and by the time I turned back it was just making a turn off main street and was gone from sight. Somehow I got that gut feeling that the fan was in some sort of trouble. I soon forgot about it till I saw mention here about a 20 inch box fan. Hmmm

The duckslayer had a bit to say...

LMAO!!! Some people have way to much spare time. It may however explain where all the 20 inch box fans are going!

Harmonica Bear took pictures as it came speeding through... See thread for pictures

Lisa could have got it for her birthday but its still at large..

So Dave... we are not sure anymore if some or all of the stickers were removed or new ones added along the way..

But DTRO has the box fan wind generator coming to a fish house soon, so stay tuned to this threat to find out more of the traveling box fan!!!

If fan is found, while cleaning out my shed at lake last fall I found a Aluminum fan blade for a 20 inch box fan so if found contact me and I will forward a replacement blade to the owner. I don't have any stickers though frown.gif

all I want for Christmas is a 20' box fan


I seem to remember a thread about that 20' box fan, and most guys decided that it was just too large to bother with attempting to transport. That thread died off after just a few replies, as I recall. Now, the 20" size box fan... talk about one of yer hot items...

I think I fixed it...ok?


Don't do that Tom!!! I thought that you meant that you had fixed the missing blade on the fan! I was prepeared to do whatever it took to get that fan so that I could use it at the fling next year at LIWBT. Dang, I guess that I am back int he market for one though should it or another one show up. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

There isn't one person who hasn't thought this thread wasn't funny!!!..We make people laugh..Dont know who your talking about by saying " some don't think its funny...

Just look around, we even have safety orange wallpaper in here with purple bean bags to boot.. Now if we could find that darn fan we would have it made... I heard a few talking that that they spotted it on the ice being used as a snowmobile anchor.. Not sure how and why, but we need to get it back, so if anyone sees a snowmobile tied to a 20 inch box fan, grab the fan..

We haven't opened our presents yet-not till tomorrow (my boy with his dad until tomorrow) so there's still some hope for me! There are a couple nicely square packages under there-the hope's still alive for that fan under my tree!! grin.giflaugh.gifgrin.gif

      I got up Sunday afternoon. I'm debating dropping my dock in, I want my dock builder/ barge company to see the lean or torque that's on it since they made the "L" permanent. One boat came out of Black Bay when we were fishing. Did you happen to notice the water temp in the bay?
    • SkunkedAgain
      I saw a few boats out in the water but not as many as I expected for a nice weekend. When I left on Sunday night I noticed that your dock was still up, but I think your lights were on. It was tough though to see through the raindrops pelting my face! Fun times on the lake.

      Thanks for the retirement wishes! Spent the first official day putting in a new onboard charger in my boat and doing a little road maintenance with my neighbor. Just sat on the neighbors dock for an hour and got one crappie. Start of retirement feels great!

      My son and I have had an awesome season son far. He tagged out friday, I tagged out yesterday. He also helped a friend this morning with calling, and his Buddy got his first Tom.

      Congrats! I've got another 5 or 6 years to go before retirement. Plan to spend half the year at Vermilion and half in Hawaii. Already saving up for a saltwater fishing boat.

      There are guys on Facebook Market place selling buckets of Smelt right now.  One said "Fresh from Duluth"

      I was able to hit the chain on Saturday and cruised around a bit to see if I could find what the walleye were doing. Appears they should be spawning and did find what I think were a couple females just based on the location I found them.    50° on the river and saw as low as 47° on the main lake.

      I was out 4 different mornings.  Very difficult hunt.  I never saw a Tom.  Usually when we go out we can get the Toms to gobble to at least let us know where they are roosting but this year they wouldn't gobble to a call at all.  Most wouldn't gobble until almost shooting hour and if they did gobble it was on there own.  I didn't really want to hunt season A but I had to because of work.  I think the cold weather must of had something to do with it.

      And just a few days later, I got my first 10inch bluegill of the season.  Same body of water Royce got his from, but clearly a different shaped hen bluegill. As always, trophy size fish get released😁   VID_20210418_110303001~2.mp4

      First outing this spring turned out fairly successful.  Not consistent action yet but enough to stay interested.  Nothing bigger than 12 inches though.  All were released fully alive to complete the reproductive process.
