Lets see Houses for the '08/'09 season

Recommended Posts

How about a post for folks to show off their portables & perms. Show the interior and exterior. Would be nice to see what everyone does to their houses.

Here's the interior of my new perm

I'm getting a perm with a couple of buddies this year. We are going in on a 10x14 that has some interior in it, but it only has lower sleepers on each side and upper bunks. Also a heater and gas light. I'm kinda looking for ideas of interiors for that size or any size house as well.

Bring on the ice!!!! laugh .......... But not for a couple of months cause I have remodeling to do first. shocked

In addition to the Voyager I have been "pimpin" I have this camper rig. It's nothing fancy, has 5 holes,removeable wheels,great heater,works great as a home base & a place to play some poker & enjoy a beverage with friends.

No, I don't but you could check out the SnoBear HSOforum, mine is prety much the same as the ones shown there. Their 2009 models are a little different though, they lowered the floor in the center of the rig for a little more head room otherwise the layout on mine is the same. wink

the first post cracked me up. It reminded me off a shack i stayed in on URL. It was a pull behind trailor decked out by waldoch's. It was nice but a bit overkill

    • Chocolate peanut butter stout is back on tap at the Boathouse in Ely.    A little thinner than last year but still a treat!
    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
