Carpet floor?

Recommended Posts

spearingboy

First off I'm glad to see that there's finally a spearing forum. Just wondering how many or if any of you guys carpet the floors on your spearhouses to cut down on the noise? I have a Mankato house and I would like to carpet it with some indoor/outdoor carpet but I'm not sure how it will hold up with the water getting into it and then freezing. Any comments? Thanks.

Welcome to our new forum.

I have a two mankato houses that i use both for spearing.

I have placed carpet in both of these houses. There is no reason why a guy should not have carpet in the house. Like you said, it cuts down the sound, but it also will help with heat in the house.

I highly recommend placing carpet in the bottom of the floor.

Its a must have in your house!!! The carpet will also help from light coming in throw the cracks in the flow. It also makes the house a lot more comfortable to sit in for hour on end!!! smile.gif

I've had the same carpet in my mankato for over 20 years. In addition to the above mentioned reasons its also nice to stretch out on and take a nap on those slowwww days.

Thanks for all the responses guys. What types of carpet do you use?

Mike89 good to hear from you. I was hoping that you would post on here. I'm living in Osakis right now and am going to school in Alex. We should get together sometime and do some spearing.

that is true. I have taken carpet from houses that people take out, and use it. Dont spend the extra money for carpet that you know will be trash in 2 years. Take some that you know that people are going to throw it away.

One suggestion,

If you get the freebie from a removal make sure that no cats or dogs have done thier bussiness on it! Check the back for stains!

Don't ask how I know this blush.gif

Later,

Kenny

      Try cross-country skiing, fat biking and more
      Winter may have gotten off to an especially cold start in 2018, but there are plenty of ways to enjoy what’s left of it. For an introduction to snow sports, stop by the annual Winter Trails Day extravaganza at Fort Snelling State Park on Saturday, Jan. 20, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Adults and kids can try cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, fat biking, ice fishing, quinzee (snow shelter) building and archery. Other activities will include ice harvesting, storytelling and an ice globe demonstration. Guided nature hikes will also take place every half hour, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Between activities, visitors can enjoy hot cocoa around a crackling bonfire. Activities will be set up near the beach area. “Winter Trails Day is about helping people warm up to winter,” said Kelli Bruns, park manager at Fort Snelling State Park. “The cold weather months are more fun when you find an activity you can enjoy alone or with others.” This year, for the first time, sign-language interpreters will be on hand to help make the day’s activities more accessible to those with hearing disabilities. Stop by the registration tent for more information. Winter Trails Day is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the National Park Service, retail co-op REI, the U.S. Forest Service and Mississippi Park Connection. Use of skis, snowshoes, fat bikes and other equipment will be free, but a vehicle permit is required to enter Minnesota state parks and recreation areas ($7 for a one-day permit or $35 for a year-round permit). Save time, get vehicle permit in advance
      Although permits are available at the park, people attending Winter Trails Day can avoid waiting in line by getting their permit in advance. Visit www.mndnr.gov/reservations, log in (or create an account), click on “entry permit,” select a duration of “one-day” ($7) or “year-round” ($35), and continue as directed. You’ll receive an email with a permit that can be printed and displayed in your vehicle during your visit. For more information, call the park at 612-725-2724 or visit the Fort Snelling State Park Web page at www.mndnr.gov. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Are folks driving trucks out on Blue and/or Green yet? How thick is the ice now? Thanks.

      How thick is the ice on Blue now? Are people driving trucks out now? Same questions for Green lake.

      I’m not sure what all augers the clam extension fits. I know it fits ion because that’s what I use.. These things go right inside your drill and are adjustable from approximately 6 inches up to probably 14 to 16 inches, they work great. Take a look at them next time you see them in the store to see if they fit your auger. Mine stays on it all the time.
