Visitor Tips and News About Pickup Truck in Tree
I put the truck in the tree in my front yard in 1994. There are many more great pictures of it and other things I have done at truckinthetree.com.
It is located 6 miles East of Beloit on the north side of Hi Way 43 at the number 6 Clinton exit. It is a 1959 Chevy pickup truck that I put 30 feet up in the tree as a tree house for my son Luke. It has been featured on "Ripley's Believe It Or Not" as a romantic getaway, every year before Valentine's Day.[Mark Madson, 02/09/2010]
Mark has written a book, Creations of the Wisconsin Mad Man, providing insight into his "Upside Down and Backwards" philosophy.
This pick up is mounted in a tree along I-43 because....well because. There is also a V-8 weathervane on a pole, and a ground level Ford Econoline sitting at a 45 degree angle in the same neighborhood.[Bruce, 08/03/2004]
