We work to get warm
Cold weather gives us much incentive for insulating the shack. We scout for forest fires.

Yikes! It was 23° in the shack when we woke up this morning.

I had an early morning walk to the mailbox. Then I scouted the rocks road for fires (the smell is back) — dug the latrine out then wrote a note to my parents.

While I did that, George was busy stuffing, stuffing with insulation & fixing the screen vents over the windows. He must have done some good because the shack seems to be staying warmer tonight.

This afternoon we put drywall on the walls, a job that’s many times easier than putting it on the ceilings. We’ll continue drywalling tomorrow.
