I'd be careful with the neighbor situation. I don't know how far away they are but I think you said they are year round dwellers. More and more permanent residents of bedroom communities are having to deal with 24/7 parties in their vicinity due to VRBO. Nobody wants to live nest to a rental house, me included. It is especially bad with multiple families or big groups at big houses. This kind of stuff can quickly sour a relationship with your neighbors.
The neighbors are the ones who have been pushing for my uncle (and us) to rent it out, clamoring about how much potential there is. The wife is a part time realtor, and knows the market. Our thoughts are to bring them in as partners (very Jr partners), and give them a small percent of the profits to be the emergency contacts, plow the driveway, etc.. The wife also knows a local cleaning crew who can take care of the hard part of the turnover process. But I do appreciate the concern and tips. We know the neighbors, but nobody is trusted unquestionably. That's a good thing to keep in mind.
Here's my issue. As I already stated, my post did NOT introduce politics into this thread. There was ZERO intentions of that. It wasn't even designed as a pro-police picture, it was simply the pic I have of the front of the cabin. I've even said I'd replace it when I get a better pic, to please the woke crowd, thus further proving my intentions. There was zero political (or police) discussion or mention of politics in anything I wrote (not even an innuendo), and it should be quite obvious to most that it wasn't intended as political.I'm merely defending Senor Tony by pointing out that he's not the person who introduced politics to this thread.
If you happen to spend SO much time in the political section that you see political arguments in everything, then that's on YOU or Sr. Tony. I stay away from that section for this very reason.
And if Sr. Tony was offended, why the hell take the time to post and add political tripe to the otherwise non-political thread. Just move on. The same could be said about your insertions. Just move on and enjoy the cabin stuff, as that's what this thread was intending. If you don't enjoy the thread, fine, but don't troll it with a bunch of political crap. You guys are the ones making this political. If you feel strongly enough to debate this further, create your own thread in the politics section about this thread and the picture in my OP. But no more political debate in this thread!
Back to cabin life, please
