We set out Sunday morning and pioneered on a journey, deep into the Sierra Nevada mountain range (location withheld for obvious reasons). Ben"Chauncy"Lynch, Kyle "KG" Georgeson, Peter "Caveman" Tankersley and I backpacked into our destination (found via Google earth) with one task in mind... build a ski in, ski out shelter that we could return to later this winter.
We ended up finding the perfect place to build this sucka, right in a small meadow that had once been struck by a small forrest fire. This way not only are there tons of great "specimens", but you don't have to feel bad about cutting down a bunch of dead trees.
What's gonna work? Teamwork.
See the photos below. (Click notes for more info on each photo)
I encourage anyone who wants.. to do the same.
Here, is a photo of the interior. As you can see it sleeps 6 comfortably with a small dining area.
