I am so depressed

I am so depressed...
I was all set...cocked locked and ready to head out to elk camp in Tex Creek in a couple weeks.
All my gear is already pre-inspected,cleaned, fixed...ready to pack, all details double checked, ammo loaded, rifles sited in, knives sharpened, truck and trailer serviced, new tires,,,ect..

Then the septic system took a dump literally.2 weeks ago...then last week the furnace guy says my funace is toast.

I can't believe so much expense could come in so short of time, Never the less my hunting is done for this year.
No way to get funds to drive to idaho from wisconsin or buy tags except a loan from the bank....not doing that...wife says go ahead.......arrrgggg

You folks, please help me by posting pics of your camp and hunt in the coming weeks....please !!!!!!!!

I am going nuts here

Re: I am so depressed

DO NOT take out a personal loan to fund your hunting trip. By the time you are finished getting it paid off, you will have paid for two hunting trips when the interest is added in. You are smart to not give in to that loan temptation. There are plenty of elk and deer years ahead. Take care of your family and the rest will fall into place. Besides..I am here looking at my BS tarot cards and you were going to miss anyways

Completely sympathize with your situation. About a month ago dropped $7k on new HVAC system and water heater. To say it altered my hunting season/vacation plans is an understatement.

Re: I am so depressed

ahhhhh what a bummer. There are elk everywhere this season here in Idaho. Mild last winter, huge calf crop, and your messin with the septic.

I feel for you buddy :-)

Re: I am so depressed

I'm not going because all my buddies are broke(well relatively...we're all basically poor anyway).



The ones with horses anyway...and a big diesel truck and horse trailer.



I have one buddy that would meet me in CO., but he would have to drive from northern Montana and I would from eastern South Dakota. That would be fairly expensive just in fuel.

We wouldn't have horses and neither one of us can pack an elk out. It is a couple miles from the last camping area(end of road) to the nearest decent elk and about 3 drainages. I'd do it with 2 people and 3 horses in one truck but not 2 people and no horses and 2 trucks.

Oh well, I'll draw a SD Elk tag one of these years pretty soon.

I usually do all the HVAC in the house myself. Just replaced the A/C condenser motor a month ago. Replace the furnace a few years ago and re-routed a bunch of the air. Luckily we have city sewer so no problems there.
