THE TRAILER

also see bloomington 1of2

I remember being at the lot, the last of ten on South Monon Drive in Bloomington, Indiana, when Pam’s father backed the trailer in. I guess I was one of the first tenants. The rest is a little fuzzy.

Pam lived there for a while. Norm too but he joined the army. Greg Highlen would stop by after work with buckets of fish and chips. In fact he smelled like Arthur Treacher. Dave, Steve, Brad, Joe and Jeff all lived there at some point. Can’t remember if Rich lived there or just visited a whole lot. He wrote a book about it. The rent was incredibly cheap. Someone discovered we could turn the electric meter upside down and run it backward for the first half the month. We heated the place with the oven one winter. Life was good.

  1. i didn’t think anyone officially rented the trailer on monon , that pam went to be with norm in fort leonard wood, missouri, we were living there for several months when this meek couple (pams parents) knocked on the door one day and asked us if we would mind paying some rent, believe we settled on $100 per month, the lot rent and water was included, anyway great job compiling all that
