    Snow Forts

    We all remember digging snow forts and tunnels....some of us still build them with our kids! However, thanks to the experts, I've just learned I'm doing it all wrong. My kids probably don't even have fun with them now that I think about it....I should be building up, not down!

    My favorite thing was 'roughing it" when I was a kid. They get pretty darn toasty and comfy with a bunch of candles and a camp stove making hard boiled eggs . That glaze of ice that forms from the heat seemed to make them colder .

    Somebody always has to take the fun out everything. I'm with Ahab, I should have never made it to my teenage years with all the snow forts we used to build. We had a few big enough to have separate rooms with tunnels connecting them.

    Remember being in the forts when it would blowing like hell outside and it would be quiet inside them, we had candles and coffee can stoves for heat and extra cigarettes in case we got stormed in, for fuel for the stove, we used built-rite cut into 1in pieces that were soaked in hot wax, you put a few of them in the stove and they would really heat, and yes we should have been dead many times growing up, for shovels we used used short handled spades and the good old army surplus shovels

    Had a buddy in high school that used to camp overnight in his snow caves. He did this quite a bit and never caved in on him either. we spent a lot of time in snow caves but i never spent the night in one.

    Keep your kids in doors wrapped in bubble wrap and strapped to the couch with all the electric devices they can handle!

    I wish I could get a drift big enough to play in to position itself somewhere other than my driveway for a change.
