And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
live there? Not unless you beat me to it. Other bennies aside, i can only imagine the radio reception of a night....ReplyDelete
That is an old fire lookout station used by the Forest Service. Most are no longer in use and I understand some have been sold. They use to be all over the mountains in Western United States.ReplyDelete
Some are available to rent.Delete
Two are near me, Calpine and Babbitt Peak.
Two are near CW, Girard Ridge and Hirz Mountain.
I wonder how many times that lightning rod's been hit.ReplyDelete
Be a bitch hauling wood up that set of stairs every day for heat...ReplyDelete
But I'd do it.
Near me was one with ots own landong strip. Just less than 900' but doable because it was on a slope.Delete
Firewood, water, and groceries.Delete
C-O-L-D COLD!!! No way from September-April.ReplyDelete
Absolutely. Fire lookouts were occupied only during fire season.Delete
Hang out yeah live I think not… talk about exposure. But like Anom said the radio reception should be outstanding.ReplyDelete
Add gun turrets and minefields and I might consider it.ReplyDelete
Lonely up there. Take some books along with the radio.ReplyDelete
Location is nice, but too much glass.ReplyDelete
The bed is right next to the stove for a reason.ReplyDelete
That stove doesn’t look large enough to hold a banked up fire all night….have to wake up to stoke it two or three times during those 12-14 hour nights…ReplyDelete
Spent a winter in a converted shed in eastern Oregon that only had a wood burning cast iron cook stove that couldn’t hold a fire much past 4-5 hours .
Had running water inside from 2” pipe in the creek necked down to 1” coming inside…had to leave it dripping all the time.
Each morning I had to make a new fire and then bust up the 3-4 inch stalagmite in the bottom of the sink.

Ahh, the joys of heating with wood. I've got a big Fisher Grandma Bear that needs to get tended to at least once a night. But I don't mind. It's completely organic and the fact that you're willing to tend the stove late at night just lets the Mrs. know how much you love her. Because sure as shootin', she ain't gonna get up and do it.
Have ya lost yer mind?
I am sure he means organic as plain/simple. No fans .thermostats, woodpellet feed hoppers or catalytic device.ReplyDelete
