Its that time of year again!!! To busy with work to get to the mountains this week? Or want to get ready for next week? Or just bored..... be a kid and get the shovel out.
How many people here have had neighbors give them strange looks when making a snow cave in the front yard? I decided to make one for the hell of it the other day... while making the giant pile and shoveling my yard for enough snow... a guy walked up and was like that is cool your making a snow fort for your kids. .. (mind i do not have kids)... I quickly and excitedly told him it was for me not the kids!
Last night me and my mountaineering friend crashed in the cave, held up really well. Its been built for three days now and has not sunk in at all. Great way to practice your snow cave making skills.
So has anyone else had some fun at home? Lets see pics.
It is bigger as of today, no pics yet. We decided we would like to have another six inches on each side to allow for loft in the sleeping bags and keep them from touching the walls.
The best part of it all??? We ordered a pizza and told them to deliver to the snow cave in my front yard.. and sure enough... he did! The pizza guy was shocked to look in and see us drinking beer and awaiting our pizza. lol He got a good tip.
