The Shack near Phillips, Wisconsin

the woodstove in the sleeping area
This is the woodstove in the sleeping area, which had four World War I era surplus bunkbeds. The stove was hard to control sometimes and would glow red hot if you put too much wood in and didn't shut the flue in time. That was scary.

Grandad with a Price County martini (mid to late 1980s?). A Price County martini is a martini made with freshly harvested icicles from the eaves of the cabin.

That seat is going to be cold
The outhouse was fifty yards down the path. Way too far on a sub zero night.

The shack with the outhouse
A view of the cabin with the outhouse in its new location after some teenagers vandalized the old one by kicking it over (it was a bit rotten on the bottom).
