    Very simple. Feed them a lot of corn. Install the appropriate NSN ductwork to their exhaust, then angle the duct and register to where you want the heat. :D

    in reality, I only entered because there were so many pages of smack talk and I was hoping to get folks in motion.

    the fact that B5 had never attended a class or made a debris shelter before this rates an extra point in my book.
    palm fronds shed water pretty well -- but you need to lay them on several layers thick.
    Se7en had the most functional/complete shelter of the 4.

    the juniper branches are more likely to go up than the wet grass.
    build the fire in front and slightly off center so you have a clear escape route in case of sparks and all is well.
    one of the things I had intended on doing was adding a raised bed -- but then the cold snap hit and I didn't feel the need to go play around in it.

    I remember this as well! I made my first debris shelter for this contest. I'll have to see if I can dig out pics as well and post them up on here as well. What are people using to host their photos now? Photobucket doesn't work for me anymore...

    Sorry. Answered about heaters on horses...tracks on horses are simple. They are just modified rollerskates ducttaped to horseshoes.

    I was assuming that it was dry grass, I never even considered it being wet lol. Se7en did build a rocking shelter, I wish he would have included more of the details here that he put in the other thread.

    So with a extra point for being a noob it looks like that puts Black5 in the lead.

    Thank you Ash,

    For hosting this contest and putting up prizes for the successful contest winner. It's one thing to do this if you are a dealer or distributor,but it's a totally different level of dedication when other members do this kind of thing.

    Thanks for the opportunity buddy.

    Thanks, guys. But i really don't deserve the win, I'm telling ya.:rolleyes:
    I can't imagine being in the position @ASH put himself. But it was fun (how many trash talk posts?) and I really did learn a lot. Like I said, I wouldn't really have known where to begin without the links and seeing what you guys were doing.

    Mail comes to the state. What the contracted rural carriers do with it from there is often in question..:confused:

    Getting out there and doing and learning is what it is all about. That is really the whole point of doing these things besides the fact that it is just fun.
