Hold your house down!!!

7 posts in this topic

Im no expert but I have learned a few tricks. I would like to share one with you. When I fish out of my portable I have some nylon plastic tye wraps zipped on my floor poles. There the black ones with th hole on the end. Then I cary sheet rock screws, and screw my house down. I have set up in 35mp winds with no snow on the ice, and have never lost my house. Hope this works for you!!!

One thing I do when there is no snow on the ice like are running into now is before I leave shore I grap a hand full of beach sand. After drilling holes and cleaning them out I sprinkle the beach sand where the house is going to sit before putting the house back over the holes, it definitely keeps it from sliding all over.

One thing that I have done, (only applicable if you can drive out) is throw a tube of sand, or two, (like the one's you buy @ Menards) in there. This has worked well, especially when I'm by myself and have to exit the house to stretch.

Check out Soderbloom Inc. sand tube ice anchors. My friends and myself love them to hold our portables down in the wind! No more moving or freezing in of the house. www.soderbloom.com.

Hmmm

Today would be a good day to think about this.

My shack is made out of a green camping tarp and is or "was" sitting out on Prior as of yesterday.

Do you ever get that sinking feeling that you should have anchored the shack...???

At least on Prior all the lakeshore is residential.....hopefully I'll get a call when it ends up in somebody's backyard.

Sailing anyone??

I have seen alot of portables blowing around out on Prior. Kind of funny to watch those things tumbling across the ice.

    •   That's basically what Ryan tried to do with the last bill...authored behind closed doors.   That all worked out well....
    • Just make them pass it before they see it
    •   Democrats have wanted a single payer system from the start, but they don't have the power to pull it off.   The elderly, the healthcare providers and the medical profession are the drivers of the legislation, and they don't want single payer either, since they have already seen what has happened to Medicare coverage.

    • Same here. And look how well twetter is working for da prez!!
    • Facebook is where it's at...no thanks...
    • All forums have a certain shelf life. There is only so long that the debate over Ford/ Chevy, Vex/Marcin. Eskimo/ Strike master, Ice Castle / Yeti can keep your attention. After a while most just slip away. New people are using social apps more that the old forum formats and that is that. The only thing saving silly town is that politics is the gift that keeps on giving. 
    • Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is among GOP leaders saying Republicans and Democrats now need to work together on a fix. Over the weekend, Rep. Betty McCollum and Sen. Al Franken – both Democrats — said they agreed with Graham. “That is what we need to do,” Franken said on WCCO Sunday Morning. “Speaker Ryan said at the end of this process that the Affordable Care Act is the the law of the land. We need to address what’s wrong with the Affordable Care act, what isn’t working.” Immediately after pulling the bill, Trump said he would be willing to work with Democrats on health care.     Too big to fail.....deja vu
