Ron L. Zabler admits Oneida County winters have been harsh on his family’s cabin in the woods.
Some of the paint may be peeling, but that makes this place no less important to him.
“Once I’m up here, I don’t want to go back,” said Zabler, whose permanent home with his wife, Carline, is in southern Wisconsin.
A lot of his attitude has to do with his family’s history on this plot of land.
“I’ve been here since I was 14. I was here when the original owner was here,” said Zabler, who is in his 70s.
