RABBIT HUNT!

What does the army need with a duck?
 
2014-08-03 10:36:41 AM  
DUKW. Amphibious transport from WWII. I believe it was based on the 2-1/2 ton design.
 
2014-08-03 10:37:15 AM  
How hard up is the military that it has had to start drafting ducks?
 
2014-08-03 10:39:30 AM  
Pickup truck without much luck, and 25 bucks for a farked up duck.

For anyone who hasn't seen one, it's one of these.  There are at least two companies in the Dells that do tours on Ducks, plus a couple of jet boat tours, dinner boat tours, PT-boat tours, etc.

How on earth could the truck driver NOT see the duck? Those things are BIG and pretty high up when the wheels are on solid ground.

Very true. I also grew up in that area and worked in the Dells one summer. The restaurant was on the corner across the road from Fort Dells (we shared a parking lot with Paul Bunyan) so I saw the ducks driving around on a regular basis.

Hot damn, I did five summers between FamilyLand and the Polynesian (I know, I know...but the tips were decent and they didn't complain about all the OT I put in).  No way I'd do it again but it beat crappy work in Juneau County.

In the photo it looks like the pickup hit the duck hard enough to knock an axle clean off. I bet that if you hit a duck from the front you go under the duck, even if you are driving a pickup.
 
2014-08-03 11:02:05 AM  
Didn't they hear the quacking?

So this was a quack-up?

One of the drivers was quackers?

So who gets the bill?

Was the weather foul?

Will the po-po quack the case?

Did anybody yell 'DUCK'?

I think almost anyone who lived within 30 miles of the Dells and had a car or knew someone they could car pool with worked at least one summer there. If your boss liked you, you were guaranteed a job each summer throughout HS and college.

Well, if it's a duck, couldn't they just tape it back on?

Probably did see it, and for some reason just assumed it could stop or maneuver like a normal car and didn't give it any clearance.

OK. Check that one off the list. Pickup vs. DUKW = Draw.

Because one of its legs is both the same.

The Lighthouse?  I went there a couple times as a teenager when the family was in the Dells.  That was probably my favorite place to eat in that nasty little town.  I was there last summer because some visiting relatives wanted to ride the coasters.  I took them there, but it's a different restaurant now.  A Mexican joint.  Not a bad place, but I wanted the pizza from Lighthouse.

I don't get The Dells.  Why the hell do people drive up through a traffic jam all the way up I90 from Chicago, check into overpriced 1-star motels, then get back in the car and sit in a traffic jam getting to an overpriced waterpark, where they wait in long lines to ride a 30 second ride, and then wait in more lines to pay for overpriced crappy hot dogs?  And then there are the t-shirt shops.  Don't get me started on the t-shirt shops.  Tackiest.  Town.  Ever.

I guess the fad for Duck Boat Tours is not restricted to San Francisco - IIRC, they used one as part of the publicity stunt for the Olympic torch a few years back.

I'm not sure I understand the appeal myself, but hey tourists exist to have the money taken from them.
 
2014-08-03 12:33:55 PM  
no, the water is not deep. i just saw a little duck with three inch legs walk all  the way across

bmwericus: I'm not sure I understand the appeal myself


dude. its like a giant monster truck, thats also amphibious. what part of that doesn't scream epic fun/poor choices/property damage?

/seriously though, where I saw them being used, there was no other reasonable way to move stuff through the jungle without transferring it between several normal vehicles and a couple of little boats, even assuming you had somehow been able to get normal vehicles upriver in the first place.
//Besides, unlike the little aluminum boats, the DUKW's were Croc proof.

Haven't been to the Dells since the mid 80's, but I remember loving the duck tours and eating at Paul Bunyons.

It was the Copper Kitchen (long gone). The Dells used to be fun. Before we could drive, we would take the train there ($2.50 round trip) and spend the day wandering around and doing things like Fort Dells and the Ducks. The waterparks ruined it all. My Mom still lives 15 miles away and I go to see her regularly but I haven't set foot in the Dells for over 30 years.

Amen to that, I also was there when the foreign students started pouring in as lifeguards and housekeepers.  I usually ended up working 6 days a week 8-12 a day and that was what the foreign guys referred to as "their first job".  They also partied like rock stars (piece of advice, trust no lifeguard in the Dells).  I've also ruined my fiancee's childhood because every strip motel and place I see reminds m of places we used to get wasted or when the housekeepers got hold of Willie Nelson's weed he left at the Copa.

Oh, the FIBs... they like to pull the "I'm from Chicago" line out (and no, you're not, you're from a suburb 40 miles out so STFU) thinking it will open some magical velvet-roped private room with the finest cigars, brandy, and local women-folk you can have your way with.  They can go to hell.  With the benefit of hindsight, the rest of them weren't that bad.
