I love Freecycle!!

If you don't know about freecycle you have to find one in your area. They are everywhere. People post things they have to give away and you can post things you need. It is a great way to recycle and keep things out of the dump that still have life.
Yesterday I saw an ad for a trampoline from someone that said their kids had out grown it. It was a bit rusty but free and I am all about stretching my bucks. The down side is it was all the way in Wellfleet but we are on school vacation so we had nothing but time. I have never been off the beaten path on the way to P-Town so it was nice to see parts of small town Cape Cod especially during the winter season.
They were nice enough to take it apart and leave it in a pile in the driveway. The girls were super excited to help load it in the truck. Right-They spent the whole time picking dandelions while I loaded it.
When we got home I went right to assembling it as they had no patience for waiting and the rain is supposed to come for the next few days. It was easy enough and as you can see we were jumping for a bit before it was time for work.
By the way-I have never jumped on a trampoline and got on to try. I was terrified. I expected it to break under my weight. I felt immediately dizzy but I think it could actually end up being a workout.
