Assembly not included, huh? But arrangements can be made to have it shipped as well as assembled.
I'm unfamiliar with bidding on things, both online and at actual auctions. I just clicked on and read the link, and at the end it said that the bidding was closed. Maybe it's still available.
I wonder where the fire tower came from. Perhaps one that was dismantled and replaced. Why was it dismantled. Maybe it was to build a higher tower because the trees grew too high and the fire watch couldn't see over the trees.
Seriously, the tower might be a good thing for a group of people who love the Pine Barrens to chip in for and use. I would afford a great overhead, panoramic view of the Pine Barrens.
Maybe some of you 4 X 4 types can bring a few cases of beer and your high powered rifles and scopes and we could shoot rattlesnakes from atop the tower. :wink:
