Questions for permanent house!!!!!

6 posts in this topic

Hello all, I have a question about where to get foam for a bunk bed. I just bought a permanent house and am planning on building a couple of bunks in it. Where do I get this from? ANyone have any ideas? What did the rest of you do with your bunks. Also, have any of you heard about a hookup that will run your trailer lights and also charge your bateries at the same time?

I saw neat bunks built out of canvas with a piece of pipe ran through a continuous loop similar to camp cots. the pipes were attached to the walls into slots in a 2x4. When they weren't being used, they could simply be rolled up and put away. they looked pretty comfortable although I did not try it myself.

kooba, check out any surplus store around you, we got foam for our bunks at one. They had many sizes of foam in the store, two, four,six inch and many others also. They came in large sheets and we cut them down to fit our needs.The bunks we put up were 3/4 plywood by two feet wide and six feet long, they were hinged to the wall so when not in use they folded down and were out of the way. sweet dreams.<(((((><

I've seen several types of foam while out shopping with the wifey at JoAnn fabric and Michaels stores (gotta pay the price to get to go fishing!) They had many thicknesses/densities of foam and I don't think the prices were too unreasonable-can't verify the prices though I wasn't looking too closely just making a mental note where they were for when I'm looking for it.

Check with your local Upholstery Shop. I don't know where your shack is at, but I had some cushions made for my bunks at Solona Upholstery in Malmo,Mn. 320-684-2900. They use good quality foam and sew on a removable cover that can be taken off and washed.Price depends on size, and how fancy you get with the covers. Hope this helps.

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
