fat guy in a fishouse


addicted

Question

Need an idea. My father and I are bigger guys. My sister ha given us a used 4x8 suitcase fishhouse. I have holes on opposite sides of each other, however I can't seem to figure out a good way to set up a heater & Lantern without burning my jacket sleeves I currently have a 20# propane tank with a Y setup that has a mr heater and a lantern. The problem seems to be the hump in the middle of the floor takes up way too much room.

I have a 4x8 also and I use a heater/cooker on a 5' hose. leave the 20 pounder outside and run the hose in and set the heater/cooker in the middle. that way it takes up almost no space.

I have the same set up as you, as said, leave the tank outside and run the heater in. I also use a gas lantern but I still use the small canisters, that way I hang the lantern by the center pole without a hose line in the way. It takes a little adjustment to figure out what you like, I agree that hump in the middle is a space stealer. Next time, I'm getting a different house arrangement but for now, I do the above. Get's a little tight but it sure feels good when you get out!

Addicted, Ive owned a few of those cooker type sun flowers so I had an extra stand for one, I cut the part off that would be the legs for it, or the wire that makes the perimiter of the frame. then your left with the part that hooks to the heater, and 2 legs up and 2 legs down.I bent them in a way that would hold the heater on the hump in my portable, its a trophy 5x7, it works great, and it keeps the heat low helping the holes stay open, if ya got an email i could send ya a pic.

A friend of mine had a suitcase style house and he also used a 20 lb propane tank. He built a small wooden table that sat just above the ridge in the middle. He placed the tank on top of that. He just used a small piece of plywood and a couple of 2 x 4's. Hope this helps.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.

      The creek  bite has been nothing short of awesome as we come to the end of Sep.... Some days are definitely better than others, but even the slow days plenty of fish can be caught if you put in a little time and effort.   3 and 4 inch z-man plastics as well as grub style plastics have been getting the job done for me again this week.  Also been using some number 5 shad raps just to change things up a bit... 😁
