That sucks brother. Praying for the best outcome.My buddy Ben’s ex-wife Noel rode her motorcycle to Bend last weekend. On the way bad she hit something and was thrown from the bike into and into a road sign. Fortunately the lady driving behind her was an EMT and saved her life before life flight arrived. She’s in critical condition with bleeding on the brain and broken vertebrae in her neck. The doctors said if the EMT lady had not been there she would have died. Second motorcycle incident among friends in the past month.
I’m looking at property in central Oregon due east of Crater Lake and building a mountain cabin. The property sits at almost 5,000’ near the Klamath Marsh. The marsh is in a low depression between mountain ranges and pools some cold air. Last winter during February it got down below -30F.I've never had any real issues with cold starts, even in single digits... A heater isn't a bad idea tho'.
Yeah, prolly won’t be there during arctic cold like that but the cold weather there is very possible. Most times I plan to go in winter would be when it’s going to dump some heavy snow. Travis a friend of mine is interested in also getting a place to build a cabin. He’s a building contractor so it’d be a blast to build a couple of Mtn cabins. I told Vader about it and he was stoked as his mom loves just down the road toward Kfalls.Brrr! I'd definitely want a grid heater, block heater and maybe a battery heater at those temps...
I have a design but another opinion would be great too. I love building and construction with wood. It would be great to get a place together for us MuD guys to meet up. I’ve reached out to some S. Oregon guys about it too.I’d love to design an off-grid cabin for you. Hit me up when you have a site
Wow, really clean work. That must have cost them a small fortune. Small price to pay for clean water though.Once the tank was clean it was time to install a new booster pump to the house. The old pump was plugged up.
Install new water filtration between the well and storage tank which they didn’t have before and why the tank was so full of $h!t!
Wire in 115v solenoid valve with micro switch and pump up float. Low level float to turn off booster if tank runs out of water.
All done... 3 long days of work... exhausting but now they have clean water and more water from the well. New filtration before the storage tank and a new booster pump to get better pressure to the house.
i don’t most likely in the future but it’s a whole lot better with the 4WD shifter hole blocked. While at Joshs his brother Caleb and I found a old stainless steel lid and made it. What a difference. Going down to Klamath County tomorrow to look for property east of Crater Lake.Saweet. Do you have sound deadening?
