Quinzee Huts…

I was able to talk to Robb the night before he left the lodge.  I asked him how he felt about it all and he quickly summed it up with, “COLD!”.  I really am dying to hear how he’s doing.  So, this is their shelter.  It’s called a “quinzee” or “quincy” hut (although when i’ve heard all the canadians pronounce it, it sounds more like, “kwanzee”.)  It’s for when you’re serious about shelter in extreme cold weather.  sheesh!  For anyone interested, this link seems to describe it well.  http://www.alpharubicon.com/primitive/quinzeetrigger.html  This is what it looks like:

Robb is out there for the second night tonight.  Luckily, it’s supposed to warm up a bit soon…

  1. Are you seeeerious??? Wow . . . I thought you were just kidding about him building an igloo. I’m very thankful for my nice cozy house right now. We’ll miss you at Bible Study tomorrow. Are you doing the lessons even though you can’t be with us? . .. the book is sooo good.
