      That's a cool looking cabin, and probably much appreciated by the weary mushers and their dogs.

      Unfortunately it is pretty well gone / unusable now. It was placed in a stream bottom and in the winter the overflow freezes high enough that I have seen 4 feet of ice inside it!
      While it was in good shape, a friend & I had taken shelter there for 2-3 days in a bad storm, we even brought our dogs inside it was so bad!

      Yep, I can see the stream bed being a bad idea. Too bad really, but as your story illustrates, it probably had an active and interesting history while it was usable.

      On a side note, I like the idea of including the buddy icon in comments. I'm trying it out here. Hopefully, it works properly.

      It is too bad, this cabin was in a nice spot on the winter trail...if it had only been off the stream!!!

      The reply icon is a nice little feature, some time back there was a greasemonkey script that did pretty much the same thing, but this is so easy to use!
