In the 70s Alaska I can remember long snowmobile trips where we would find old cabins and stay the night.I have a friend in Mt Vernon, WA that gives me an old PM about every time I visit. I think I have one that's over a hundred years old. Get a kick out of the old cigarette adds, lol. One of my childhood memories is from the 80s, I was maybe 10 or 11. We were living in an old log cabin, southeast Alaska, no power, no running water, a 5 gallon bucket and some kerosene lamps. I have very fond memories of sitting and reading this big old red hardback book by lamplight. I cannot remember the name of it for the life of me but it had the coolest projects in it. Steam engines and rafts and all sorts of things. Good times.
One of the coolest parts of those trips was reading the” insulation” tacked to the walls.
