Build up a couple of those swamp coolers in 5 gallon buckets & mount a little solar panel on the roof to power it - you'll be living large in your tower!
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

Deerhead - The more I look at these photos the more amazed at you and Split Toe for you getting it down there and for you guys did and got this sucker up right....and I know one of you is almost a senior citizen (Split Toe)...LOL...great job you two and Cobb Guy and Lee.....saw in the last photo how you cemented the stand to the ground....Next is will Jap51 Tower Stand and during the upcoming work weekend will try and find some time in try to get my box blind at least put together and out somewhere.....it will be interesting to see how this new knee holds out....

But again great job you two, three and four guys getting it up...Now what are we going to call it, we got to have a name for it....."Deerhead #1" stand or ????...think about it....

How about "The Upper Room" or "The Eiffel Tower" or "The Penthouse" or "Deerhead's Hideout"

Gut - I like "Eiffel Tower" myself....yea, Deerhead a nice back wall where you could mount the trophies you take out of it, leave room for the Lazy Boy Recliner...LOL...the tin roof and the sun will generate enough heat to keep you cozy..

Split Toe - Jap51 tower should go up with ease compared to Deerhead....Are you guys going to pre-build it in camp then reassembly at its final location??

He's going to predrill the bolt holes for the 16 foot 4X4's and the platform 6X6's for the floor at home before we put it up.

Looking good deerhead, Did you leave enough room in there for the recliner? Those deer running the cutovers don't stand a chance now. Hope to see you soon.
Looking forward to seeing you in November. Things have really changed since you were at camp but it's all good!  ##$%#112

Split - That is good that Jap51 will pre-drill the holes at home...I need to do the same, for the 4x6 platform, that I am thinking about....

I will be down for work weekend at the end of August, I would not miss it for the world, besides have to bring down some paper products for the club, the number one item to bring is toilet paper...LOL...but will make a Sam's run within the next few weeks and get all the paper products we need, should take us well into Archery Season...will not bring down the 30 gallons of water! but will bring it down for Archery/Muzzle Loader and for our Hunt week or two....

Will start assembly the B4K box blind sometimes during the weekend....
