See Through Hole Covers

 How do you keep those solid whole covers from freezing over the hole?

 

I actually have the opposite 

Problem of keeping the ice solid.

After about two weeks of fishing the same spot,IMG-20130228-00288.jpg.67c35dbd7de70821255dfe3d9bc8bba1.thumb.jpg.dbfd4007dd52f5d8d33f7eac330958f0.jpg

The front tip-up is floating on water.

 I now bank the back 3/4 of the house only To regulate the trapped air underneath.

Where are you? Maybe just block the house up and don’t bank it at all. I’ve never heard of that problem before. Do you leave the heat on all the time when you leave?

If you are spending that much time in one spot, spray foam is going to do you a world of good and will also make things comfy on the feet.  I suspect it will also cut down on the wading pool as well!

Hole liners would help too. Do you use them?  I think some of that happens in all houses that sit a while with heat on. If a fan is forcing heat down from the ceiling into a marginally/uninsulated floor a ton of heat transfers. Just a guess.

Foam may give me a couple extra days.

I try to pull the shack ahead for fresh ice every two to three weeks.

 

 Alot of times I have to move due to a heavy snow fall or warm streak.

As the weight displaces water caused from the sagging ice sheet underneath me.

 

 Nobody ever said living on

A floating ice cube for two months straight was going to be easy or smart.

I would bet the first time you seen it the OH Ship factor came to mind.

Sounds pretty friggin awesome to me. Still, for the couple hundred that it costs spraying is definitely worth it

    • I put these on about 6 years ago and have never had to clean out the gutters with 5 Maple trees in my yard. And their cheap!    LB Plastics 3' Brown Filtered Vinyl Gutter Cover Model Number: 1585124 Menards® SKU: 1585124 $1.97 each Variation: Brown
    • I like to pick the smaller ones as they are not as woody.  I slice thin cuts off the outside edges and throw the center, batter and fry them.  Yuum! 😋 
    • I am going to order some Somerset grapes to start growing on my property for table eating.  Can anyone recommend any other varieties that are readily available and grow well in zone 4B?   Everything I found so far appears better suited for wine or juice making.  
    • I picked a handful this year to try.  Must say that we were impressed with how good they are sauteed in oil.  I only cut the ones about the size of my hand.  Some turned out to be quite tough, and when sliced thin and cooked they came out like rubber.  The mushrooms that were easy to cut and had thinner pore section cooked very nicely and everyone liked the flavor.  I trimmed off the pores and center stem like as advised on various sites I had read before testing.  The smell is also nice when fresh cut, like watermelon rind just like I read.  I expect I will be harvesting many more of these in the future.  They are very abundant in the areas I hunt. 
    • I'm looking for a cover for my rain gutters. I'm sick of cleaning my gutters I have five maple trees a round my house and the helicopters and leave are a pain.  The biggest obstacle is I have a metal roof. Has anybody found anything to keep dump out of there gutters? 
    • Woot woot!  WTG RK!
    • Mine survived also!
    • It got to 38 degrees and they did ok. Plenty of heat in there with the sun to warm them back up. Jalapenos, bells and habanero. Planted a couple mortgage lifters on the north end.
    • Yep, sprayed it twice in our yard and still can't kill it all!  😕
