Things are coming along pretty well. Saw a pan on top of the heater, does it heat the water up? How did you get to town?

Is the water frozen?

How many times will we get to hear from you this winter?

Are you going anywhere for the holidays?

Don't have to say..."Stay warm" cuz I can see that you are!

Thanks for sharing!

Friendship/Love/Respect for all living things..

We got to town by foot. As the lake is not yet solid enough to walk across, we had to take an alternate route, that takes us 8 kms out of the way to avoid a large patch of swamp land. If we could walk across the lake, it is a very direct 2.5 kms, the route we had to take was an exhausting 10 kms, hauling 100 lbs of gear behind us in sleds.


"Town" is reached by the route described to reach our truck, then driving 40 kms to town which has a hardware store, liquor store, and restaurant. The nearest grocery store is over 100 kms away. Needless to say, once there, we stock up!

The pot on the top of the barrel heats water to scalding temperatures, too hot to put your hands in for dishes, but, as the insides of the heater are still a bit wet (it take a looooong time to dry all the water out) the water does not yet boil. We are hoping that once the unit dries completely it will produce a boil. If not, I will make some mods.

The Lakes in the area a re frozen for the most part, but no where near solid enough to walk on. We have about 2 inches of ice currently, and things are in a warming trend so that amount is sure to recede as we start seeing temps above freezing again during the day. 5 inches of ice is the very least I would ever consider walking across, and even then I would not want to be hauling or carrying any gear.


I will be around the city and frequently visiting this site until the new year. Home for the holidays so to speak. I will return to my house in the woods once the main lake has enough ice to support me and my gear, quickening the return, and allowing for a greater amount of supplies to be transported.

Thanks for your interest.
