    Its been discussed for several weeks now in the Real Estate thread, but the big news in my life is that I bought my own private island. I never, ever envisioned myself owning an island, but I gotta admit, not having any neighbors is soooo nice.

    This island really cool. 7 acre island plus a tiny 1/8 acre lot on the shore for access. Its on the same chain of 6 interconnected lakes as my Moms condo. My grampas old cabin is on the same chain of lakes as well.

    No buildings have ever been built on it. It is zoned Residential, so the county building rules apply plus the setbacks from the lake required by the DNR. Trees are mostly white pine, with some hardwoods mixed in.

    Havent really decided what to do with it. Probably off grid cabin. Definitely hosting next summers Midwest Maggot Fishing Summit.

    Any maggots looking for a unique camping experience in Northern Wisconsin get in touch.

    Had no idea real people could own their own island. Holy moly! Harry is freaking winning!
    Brandine: Now Cletus, if I catch you with pig lipstick on your collar one more time you ain't gonna be allowed to sleep in the barn no more!
    Cletus: Duly noted.

    HarryLand is a great name for a micronation.
    I'm sure the creative mags could take care of the flag and national anthem for you.

    Anyone else follow Mark Abma and his off the grid island project on IG, Project Neverland?

    I’m thinking that with less pro skiers and more maggots.
    I still call it The Jake.

    Might be worth planning a trip to https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/MicroCon

    He could meet the Duke of Westarctica as an equal.
