    • It would have been interesting to hear how the heater kept up?   Say, did you get a different camper?  They don't put those dbl sliders on travel trailers much? 🙂
    • We went up and spent the night at a friend's cabin about 5 miles away. We planned to stay in the camper but when we were offered a nice warm cabin we said yes!
    • Were you just checking it Dave, or did you spend the night? 
    • Lots of snow up north by my camper....    
    • When we go camping we make boiled or cowboy coffee.   Put in water, add ground coffee, bring to just a boil, shut off.  Let cool a couple minutes for grounds to sink, and drink.     A french press or a Chemex would be better coffee but more stuff to mess with.  A electric drip pot can do a great job or a poor job but is really easy.      My opinion is Chemex (pour over) if you are a coffee aficionado.  Cowboy style if not.   In any case, an insulated carafe is a good idea to keep it hot.  
    • Def got a porn soundtrack.   The old shack on some property where I deer hunt has an assortment of Stihl calendars from the early 80s with some bikini gals running chainsaws and leaf blowers.
    • That’s about right.  I figured 5 inches of new powder.   Glad you’re getting out and enjoying your sled. 😎
    • Love these old sled commercials pretty sure they wouldn't get away with them today!  🤭    
    • It's not that hard to do, but it is a dirty, miserable job, it takes 2 people-1 feeding the blower the other in attic. See what the blower and insulation costs--then check the labor costs to have it put in.. Now you have to decide which way to have it done. Transportation of blower and insulation is something else to consider.
    • I have done it a few times in the past. It’s not a hard job but you’re going to get plenty dirty and like grainbelt said, if can get hot during the warmer months. You used to get the blower for free after buying a certain number of bags but I’m not sure that’s the case any more.    If if you do it be sure to think about your path out before you start. You want to start at the back and work your way to the access and not have to climb over any of the freshly blown insulation.    I have heard that some people would go up in the attic with a sharpie and measure how deep you want the insulation to be. Then mark the rafters. I’ve never done it that way. I’ve used a paint stir stick or something similar and just spot checked as I went along to make sure I got it to the desired depth.    The last time i helped helped a friend do this we had the blower in the back of a pickup and just backed up right under the access. One person in the box and the other in the attic. The machine we had didn’t have a remote shut off so the person with the hose would just plug it with their hand to signal the guy on the bottom to turn the machine off.    If you go go through with it yourself I’d buy one of the white disposable cloth suits to wear and a few dust masks. If you wear contacts I would take them out and wear glasses. And like rundave mentioned, make sure you’ve got the chutes installed so you get airflow from the soffit.
