    Believe me, this is high living for the extreme north. I hear tell Wildalaska still sleeps rough in Spenard.

    Mods--on second thought my bedroom may not be sufficiently gun related to be here. Feel free to move to Roundtable :D

    Bedrooms can too be gun-related, even if they're not in Alaska... :D

    Tamara, what's the make and model of the third rifle from the left? Buttstock and mag looks like AR15, but with a weird upper.

    I see guns ... well Cosmo - a nice Naggant.

    What I also see is (an apparent) serious lack of insulation!!! Is that so? Cos if anything I have been told is correct, you guys get some REAL low temperatures right now!

    Looks tight and dry to me ! A snow cover outside for insulation if that's an exterior wall , a pinup poster of your favorite vargas on the wall and your set to go . Have a good winter !

    Ps: A little jerky to go with them crackers, and bit of peppermint snapps might make a nice midnight snack ! :D

    Looks like a G3A4 copy of some sort.

    Edit: Oops, looks like I was looking at the wrong one. This is right, this is left... I think it's a .223 FAL.

    Nightfall, I really can't think of a way to say this without it coming across completely wrong, but I've been in Tam's bedroom!

    :evil:

    (On the other hand, so have most of her friends, including half the moderators on this site... :D )

    Cosmo,
    Reminds me of a hunting cabin or two I've stayed in. I at least had a Franklin or Pot Bellied Stove...

    Tamara's Bedroom generates its own heat I see.

    You numbskulls want to run around and clear a house?

    I'd rather be holed up in Tamera's Bedroom waiting for the po-po too.

    <Call to 911 operator>

    Tamera-" I have someone in my house, I'm in fear and I am armed"

    Operator- "Could you clarify the problem?

    Tamera - " Well - I can't make up my mind which gun to use..."

    ;)

    I don't care if it does come across wrong - me too!

    I am freezing my tuchas off just looking at that pic of Cosmoline's digs. Please tell me that there's, like, ten feet of insulation on the other side of that sheet metal. :uhoh:

    'Kinda birds did you shoot, there?

    theres probably like a wall of propane heaters we can't see in the pic.

    we should do a coffee table book: The Bedrooms of Alaska and the Asshats That Occupy Them. :p

    Nope, no insulation, but I do have blueboard underneath. I've also resisted using a heater in there so far. The trick is my patent "Susitna Bed," which is a complex array of blue board, foam pads, and about eight wool army blankets arranged not unlike a spacesuit's layers. Once secured in the bed, I can cope with temps down to fifteen below zero before bailing out and running for the heated trailer. With the addition of wolf or caribou blankets I suspect I could take that down to -25, but there's only so much wool can do. I'm writing an article about it for "Backwoods Home."

    St. Herman of Alaska made do with a wooden plank as his blanket, and slept in a cave. So I'm a nancy boy by comparison. :D

    Also, those grouse were taken with my CZ 452. But I have taken ptarmigan with the Mosin using FMJ rounds. They're not nearly as destructive as you might suppose, and anchor them down well. I've had big ptarmigan in particular take multiple .22 hits and still keep flying off, though the grouse go down easier.

    Also, that's genuine Sailor Boy brand pilot bread, not mere crackers. It's ubiquitous in rural Alaska, and can be used as insulation or building material in a pinch.

    At the risk of sounding like a fruitcake...I got to say...I'm a little envious.

    While I certainly enjoy the relative comfort of my own bedroom, the implied remoteness of yours does have a certain appeal.

    The trick is to stop cleaning or taking showers. The dirt and grease builds up until you are completely waterproof.

    But for some reason, everyone keeps avoiding me since I started doing this.
