It should be noted that where Mikey was at was a LOT farther North then where I'm at.  He certainly got a taste of the real interior winter. 

I'm very close to the coast, and that mellows the weather extremes quite a bit.  I don't want to live where he was at.

 

With that said, its -15F outside right now with (-35 with windchill)....

 

This gives me a whole new perspective on what I call "freezing cold weather". I don't like to be outside for very long when I need a sweatshirt over my tee-shirt.............

The idea of your skin freezing to something, just because you touched it, is incomprehensible to me. It assures me no matter how beautiful what I have seen of Alaska (in August) may be, I could never live there unless I also had a winter home a whole lot closer to the equator.......................

Sorry, I should have put up a disclaimer,  that's not on my property, nor is it my photo.  It is from an old calendar of outhouses in Alaska.  Every month is a new crapper, lol.  ( This years photo gallery  - http://www.newsminer...b3e1af.html#29)

I have used some outdoor facilities that looked very similar, though I try not to when its the middle of winter.  But there are a lot of dry cabins (no electric, no running water) around where I live, and to the folks living in them it's just business as usual.  You've got to do, what you've got to do....

 

Personally I've got an indoor bathroom with a furnace vent in the floor right next to throne.  It blows warm air on the porcelain so that it doesn't accumulate a bunch of condensation from the very cold water being fed into it.  So if you know your going to be visiting the throne, you can kick up the furnace a few minutes early and preheat your seat, lol.

I will have to admit that Alaska was probably the most beautiful state I have ever been to. Denali national park, the ice glaciers, aurora borealis, and the talkeetna music festival, not to mention salmon fishing were well worth the investment. However, you guys are a bunch of crazy lunatics to this here city gal lol. Wild wild west indeed! A group of us from the OMC got together and made a time of it. Sadly, a few who went are no longer with us.

Unfortunately they dont do the Talkeetna bluegrass festival anymore (a sad fact).  It got too big, and they had some problems.   It is really too bad, it was the biggest and best festival in the state IMHO.   Now it has been replaced by the Trapper Creek Revival, presented by the Boots Bison Ranch.  I've heard good things about it, but haven't been yet.

Where I live, I have tried to put up tarps over a greenhouse frame that same shape and had the winds get under them and tear out all the grommets.  Such a structure needs sides and ends that keep the wind from getting under the cover.    Just last week, the fabric Costco carport that I keep two small tractors under got crushed in the wind, bending up and breaking the frame.

That'll pass for a least a season or two :)  

 

I'm more interested in meeting (meating?) this Karl Emher guy and discussing his German Deli..... (I'm dreaming of sausages now)
