Funny, my uncle did that very thing!

This is what I was thinking of when Ted started this.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Meat Head was an awesome contributor.

Ted, you could put one of those on top of your new hunting cabin... crawl out in your red "backdoor" sleepwear (Brandon told me you had some) and hunt "right there".  
Looks like the hot set up to me... I'm looking for a walk-in cooler right now.  However, NOT looking for back-door sleepwear...

I’ve deer hunted in the bush for a lot of years and found out quick that back door anything (especially long underwear), is a recipe for disaster when last nights chilli kicks in........

I'll run a small electric space heater in fall & winter months, KB.







So...update on progress from the weekend. Pretty much got all the finishing touches done, though will probably build a shower & toilet outside later.

Camouflage painted the outside, so it's not visible until you get within 75 yds or so of it.







^^^ Started running out of spray paint colors, so camo got a bit more sparse on the east side, but that is the least visible side, with heavy mesquite brush completely concealing the cabin from that direction until you get within 20' of it.

Installed a cell phone amplifier antenna, anchored against the front right corner of the cabin. I get full mobile signal inside, despite being in a metal clad enclosure, out in the middle of nowhere!



Installed a TV, sound bar speaker, and blu-ray player against the wall:



Simple, compact, yet very effective rifle racks:



Storage shelving with hangar bars, table, microwave:





And, bunk bed that you've already seen:

Was that a reference to Cyborg's infamous "pickle bucket" story, Bud?

You’re roughing it in style Ted, looks great!

Loved the cave art camo, one of a kind.
