Continuing with the theme of how weird Wisconsin can be, as we road-tripped south we stopped to see Dr. Evermor’s Forevertron in an art sculpture garden in the middle of pretty much nowhere situated back behind a place called Delaney’s Surplus Sales.
A small portion of the Forevertron.
The Forevertron just may be the world’s largest scrap metal structure — according to Wiki, it stands some 50 feet high and some 120 feet wide and weighs something like 300 tons.

It was built by a guy named Tom Every. He says he even managed to include the autoclave units from the Apollo 11 spacecraft in the sculpture. I couldn’t point them out to you though.

Dr. Evermor says that some day the Forevertron will send him up into the heavens using energy from lightning.

I say, if you like steampunk, you are going to love Dr. Evermor’s Forevertron….
If you go, there is a gravel road just past Delaney’s that will take you right to the sculpture garden. Or, you can do like we did and park at Delaney’s and walk through to the garden. Admission is free, but there is a donation box.
Lisa has a degree in biology and another in law and has spent the last 20 years working as a patent litigator. She is a voracious reader of young adult dystopian fiction and watches far too much bad tv. She loves pretty much anything to do with zombies, and doesn’t think there is anything weird about setting an alarm at 6 am on a weekend to stumble to a pub to watch her beloved Chelsea boys.
Robert has had many professions, including a chef, a salesman, an IT guy and most recently, a stay at home dog dad. He speaks Italian and hopes to learn Spanish on this trip. He loves nothing more than a day spent sailing, hopes to do more scuba diving, and rues the day he introduced Lisa to football (i.e., soccer).
