Well I haven't posted in a very long time. Life just gets plain crazy sometimes. The other reason is that while we were building we were broken into. That made me really shy to post anything.
Anyway, when the break in happened they hit 5 cabins on our road that were seasonal places. My neighbor had been up to his place( he had been broken into, one of the 5) and called me and asked if I had left my front door open. At that time the door was on but we had not installed the storm doors. I had told him no. That was on a friday and one of my cousin's was on his way up. So he got there and met the sheriff.
So they had taken a cheap video game from one of my neighbors, Stole a nudy poster off the wall and took booze from another place. Stole a sledge hammer from another one and that is what they used on my front door. They tried to kick it in first but then used the sledge. All I lost was a case of water. I had ladders and a whole bunch of romex laying there and they didn't touch it.
Cops figure it was kids, one with a driver's license. Could have been worse but that was one expensive case of water. New dead bolt, new handle and lot's of work on the inside door jam.
Cops a got a good footprint off the door but that was about it. The sheriff have been very vigilant since then. One of my neighbors who had a seasonal across the road from me, has now moved up there full time. He told me that there is alot of meth in the area now. So I'm pretty cautious now about everything. Which really sucks because I thought I would be away from all that in the north woods. Funny how I was more wary about the wolves, now that has changed.
I think now that the neighbor across the road is full time, I think there is a less likely chance of a break in.
I will be posting more in a few days.
