1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    Are the shelters already built or was building them part of the fun?

    I wish I could say I had a hand in building them. Jeff Hatch, a friend and a couple of his students built them. They have enough pine around them to where they could build a fortress. They have a really good start going.

    With the way it was setup it really was comfortable despite being so cold. Had to restoke the fire around 4am. I was warm in my sleeping setup but it sure was cold when I got out. Haha

    Yes, I got plenty of sleep. I was totally warm in my setup even when the fire burned down.
