Non-Radio – Where the Road Stops

Memorial Day 2022 I drove the Pinzgauer 710M up to Washington Island to participated in an Island charity event.

The ride out to the island was on Washington Island Ferry Line’s Madonna, their newest, fastest, biggest and “bestest” ferry!

During the weekend drove over to Jackson Harbor, which is truly the “End of the Road” in Door County Wisconsin, but first needed to stop my the K9ZW Island retreat.

The official roads end at the Rock Island ferry, which is a passenger-only ferry as vehicles are not allowed in the Rock Island State Park.

The 710M at Jackson Harbor, which truly is the “End of the Road” in Door County. The Island in the Distance is Rock Island, State Park, where no private cars are allowed.

Rock Island is also the end of Wisconsin, as the much further distant islands are part of Michigan.

So I can now say “I have been to the end of the road and back, with my Pinzgauer!”




Non-Radio – Playing with the Pinzgauer

As we had family and friends visiting, I pulled out our 710M Pinzgauer to do one-on-one rides and driving experiences.

Back end looking very “closed up”

Was really hard to not get the truck and people dirty by going off road.

But I had my directions.

It was a bit too cold to roll up the back canvas and expect anyone to enjoy a ride from the troop carrier portion of the truck.  So I did a series of rides, and for a few that seemed eager did a bit of driving instruction.

Sorry the photos are mine taken at the end of the weekend, as the action & people shots are on other’s phones.

Non-Radio – Parades and Charity Events in a Pinzgauer

Summer weather and greatly lessened Virus restrictions have allowed a number of community and charity events to proceed. As I have found myself double-booked or away for the first few a friend drove my 1975 Pinzgauer 710m. The support of charities and community at events like this benefit from interesting things that pull the public. Seems the Pinzgauer qualifies for that “pull.”

Manitowoc Wisconsin Fourth of July Parade

Hometown 4th of July parade was the latest, where entries simply show their community support and patriotism. For many years as a youth I marched the parade in a band. First school bands and later a few times in a community band. Was nice to put the truck into the 2021 parade.
