Dungeon's Demise

Just a couple of months and this is what happens since I'm no longer in the dungeon to keep it up. Sort of sad really considering the months I took shelter in it. Time marches on though and its slowly reverting back to what it was built for. I may go ahead and dismantle it and use the lumber and other stuff for something else. Never the less the dungeon will always be special to me.

  1. I can't wait for my own "dungeon". It looks great for the winter, horrible in the summer. If I was going to move out that way, I would try to go adobe. I spent a lot of time in New Mexico, so I know the benefits of Adobe construction, whats interesting too is our forces in Afghanistan found out that infrared technology can not see through adobe structures hmmmm.

  2. Captain, The dungeon got plenty cold at night last winter. Down to 23 degrees or lower at times. At least you can put enough cover on to stay warm, but you can't do that for the heat of the summer. Crawling out of the sack when its that cold is murder though.

    Adobe isn't too great for WiFi either. I guess keeping the infrared from working could be a pluss down here some day.

  3. The dungeon should go down in history or something

  4. Well, if your going to get all sentimental about the dungeon, I suppose we could come out and get the trailer and you can move back in, rotflmao. Unless you'd rather not? It's good to hear the ole dungeon is going to go back to it's intended purpose, a storage unit, it served as a good stand in for accommodations, but I think the trailer will serve you better. ;-) Hope things are good out there!
    Love ya

  5. Dale, if need be I could handle it again, BUT! it wouldn't take it long to have an R-13.5 insulation rating rather than an R-3.5. That with the evap I have now and all the solar would probably make it half way comfortable. Tight, but comfortable. Not looking forward to that, but in case it had to happen it wouldn't be too bad.

  6. Dave, I thought you were renting this storage trailer. Is it worth the ongoing rental price to keep it around?

  7. Well. let's be glad you don't have to! If it was yours and you could modify it as you wanted/needed that would be one thing. It's best it reverts back to storage, that way you can start buying/saving stuff toward a real building your wanting. The trailer will be there at least a week longer than you'll need it, lol, it would take me longer than that to figure how and where else to take it. As before, I'm glad it's of use to you. Enjoy your get together today!

  8. Allen, I have to store my stuff somewhere so better in the dungeon that somewhere off site. I do plan to empty the other storage and put that stuff in the dungeon before long though. Looks like my best bet would be to build storage before building a cabin!

    Dale the Brunch is next Sunday and not this one. I don't figure I'll have anything built to move in to any time soon, but if you'll needed to sell this RV to help pay for medical expenses then that would be ok with me.

  9. Nope, that's not a worry. I've already hit my out of pocket and ins is covering 100% thru the end of the year. So we'll be good on that front, thanks for the concern though. The guys here at work have it set up so that I shouldn't loose any time, they're really stepping up for us, so we should be good on that front as well. Everything is set up as well as can be, it's just up to me getting through all of treatments, which I'm more than ready to get started. So there shouldn't be any worry over stuff like all that. I must have missed what Sunday you had said, I thought it was today. Sounds like fun either way, enjoy your day!
