    So I was laid off back in March. They called this morning and told me my job was eliminated. I am now officially retired. Going to build a permanent shanty and hope no one destroys it. Should be able to get out a lot more this year!!!

    I’m sorry for the loss of your job but congrats on your retirement.
    I have a couple retired guys that use my shacks M-F. I provide the shack and the propane, they keep the hole open and keep an eye on it for me. I don’t even ask that they block it up. Just give me a call if there’s a problem.
    It’s a win-win.
    Maybe you can run down a guy with a hard sider and work out a deal like that. Saves you the expense and back ache of moving it. Saves the owner the trouble of checking on it during the work week.

    The
    Scotty’s on to something—you could offer a “shanty maintenance service” and fish different water every day of the week! Business name like “Merman Maintenance” sine “Merry Maids” is already taken!

    Ice Shack Time Shares!!! What a concept LOL.

    Instead of Verbo, a site named IceO...

    Hmmm... Scotty could be on to something here...

    I like the idea of sharing shanties. I’m in the Fenton Linden area. If anybody needs your shanty checked this winter give me a holler. I’ll let you know when I get mine out.
