This was really a multi-day project which culminated today with the loading of a free, 16-foot trampoline in my sister-in-law's van for the trip to HER backyard.
Total? Probably 30 minutes.
One neighbor (OK...four blocks away, but you get the drift) had a trampoline he wanted to give away. A SIL wanted a trampoline for her kids. I hooked them up.
It all started with talking to the neighbor about a broken down fence and Freecycle (people on Freecycle will take ANYTHING, even broken down fence parts). He said, "Huh. I should put my trampoline on there."
EYE knew that my SIL wanted a trampoline, so I called her, texted up some photos, then let him know she was interested. Meanwhile, he was trying to clear a broken tree (thanks, wind) out of his backyard and re-landscape. Before she could get down here to pick it up, he was dismantling it, so I stopped by, helped complete the dismantling, loaded it in MY van, unloaded it into OUR garage for storage for a few more days, then hosted her overnight (come anytime, A!), helped her load up and enjoyed a nice visit before she returned home (3 hours north).
Absolutely! This helped the neighbor clean out his yard, the niece and nephews with a new toy, and gave my sister-in-law another excuse to come visit us.
