    yea i thought if I was to really use it I would build another side for but make it detachable.....cutting wood with the hatchet didnt take long...just chop in a v patern all the way around the log then break it off when the center is all thats left just a couple minutes it takes to chop each log with a sharp hatchet.... I like to carry a hatchet with me cause I can also use the other end as a hammer, multi tool!! The whole thing prob. took me like 6-7 hours, but it was fun and worth the experiance...the rocks really help heat up the bed too...I thought that was really cool .... hopefully I will never have to build one to actually stay in ...I carry a hamock and tarp in my BOB anyways.... :cool:

He got us all jacked up to have a place to camp out, he got his limbs and small trees dragged into the woods and guess what?

    That the darn thing is still standing and has probblY 2-3 feet of leaves and limbs on it and inside is really dry.

    I think dad used nails for the frame and it does have good sized ceader trees for the main supports but we are taking 20 years now mabe more. I was amazed anything or any part of it would still be standing.
    Its a little squished but in an emergency I could sleep in it.
    Really neat story. Any chance you could post a pic? I, for one, would like to see it.
