Was passing the time on Main street here at Lake Iwanttobethere. I was doing some window shopping when I noticed a pale weathered orange VW van slowly driving down main street in my direction. It was all done up in painted flowers and green leaves. It reminded me a lot of my long forgotten past youth. It caught my attention not because of the loud muffler or the vast number of bumper stickers and other stickers which were covering rust spots. But it was what was in the back window as it passed me. There appeared to be a 20 inch box fan pressed up against the glass, it was missing a blade and it sent a chill down my back as I could almost hear it crying out for help. I turn to see if anyone else had seen the van and by the time I turned back it was just making a turn off main street and was gone from sight. Somehow I got that gut feeling that the fan was in some sort of trouble. I soon forgot about it till I saw mention here about a 20 inch box fan. Hmmm


Oh man you made me spit soda from my nose when i read this... I am not sure if all the stories are true about the box fan but i know mine was, and the surprise when i found this thread about it as well.. Well i guess the VW van is now listed as the box fan napper..Did you catch what state the lic plates where from.. we can do sightings reports on the last know location of the traveling box fan..

Just installed a wood stove in my garage,I need a fan for cirulation,the socks will work as hot pads or rags! so im interested in both!!Could they be shipped??Of course I dont accept dirty socks so I'd pay extra to have you wash em.By the way is one sock white with a hole in the toe??It could already be mine,in that case I'll accept it dirty but at no charge.

Should do it..I am hearing of other stories of missing box fans from around MN.. Someone left a note with a pic, stating they were holding some box fans ransom. Maybe someone out here can identify these fans or the where abouts of them.

I rarely look at (FREE THINGS ONLY) thread but the last couple times here I wondered why a Free Box Fan generated so much activity. Well I started reading and I must say,

20 inch Box Fan


I may be missing something, but I really don't get why every one is getting all worked up about a person that happens to have a great personal interest in specifically-sized square enclosures? So what if he or she likes 20 inch boxes? Some people might call me a fan of odd things, too. And so what if they happen to apply stickers to themselves; alot of people wear non-comformist attire. Easier to remove than a tattoo, anyway.

Why is this so funny?

RECAPPING....

Ok well it has lost a few stickers and gain a few along its travels.. When the box fan first came around, it was listed as..The fan has a Unicorn, Teddy bear and a Kansas City Royals baseball club sticker on it.

Then it was located at these Coordinates from WCS at

44° 47.0188' N 93° 3.3234' W

and Deitz did a search only to find it was in the middle of a garbage dump..

From there it ended up on my front steps but the next day it was gone.. And No stickers but it does have a nice dent on the right side, oh and it doesn't have a handle either

..

Lisa thought maybe Jameson might have taken a midnight run to claim his next restoration project

But LABS4ME Made a note....enclose is the following

Note to self...

Stock up on broken-down, used 20" box fans... there's a definite market for them in Minnesota!

Then Bobby Bass had a sighting

The duckslayer had a bit to say...

LMAO!!! Some people have way to much spare time. It may however explain where all the 20 inch box fans are going!

Harmonica Bear took pictures as it came speeding through... See thread for pictures

Lisa could have got it for her birthday but its still at large..

So Dave... we are not sure anymore if some or all of the stickers were removed or new ones added along the way..

But DTRO has the box fan wind generator coming to a fish house soon, so stay tuned to this threat to find out more of the traveling box fan!!!
