My cabin in trouble?

2 posts in this topic

I opened my cabin two weeks ago and did not leave the heat on. With this cold weather, should I drive 2 hrs there to turn the heat on? Or its already too late?

It was 12 degrees here the other morning in Glenwood and 24 degrees out right now (4:45 p.m.). Suppose to get down to 13 degrees the next 2 nights according to the weather channel with highs in the upper 20's and maybe reaching 30. If you left your water on and not the heat, I'd be making a quick trip to the cabin. The cost of time and gas is pretty minimal compared to tearing out all the plumbing and frozen water pipes. I assume that's what you're referring to in your post. We did get 5-6 inches of snow Monday night and Tuesday a.m. so there's some insulation on the ground and I think the first foot or better of frost is out. Your interior plumbing is probably okay. It's been below freezing here the past 3 days and with it suppose to get down to the low teens the next couple nights I think I'd be making a trip to your cabin. Better safe than sorry.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
