This is what I was thinking of when Ted started this.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Meat Head was an awesome contributor.

Ted, you could put one of those on top of your new hunting cabin... crawl out in your red "backdoor" sleepwear (Brandon told me you had some) and hunt "right there".  
Looks like the hot set up to me... I'm looking for a walk-in cooler right now.  However, NOT looking for back-door sleepwear...

I’ve deer hunted in the bush for a lot of years and found out quick that back door anything (especially long underwear), is a recipe for disaster when last nights chilli kicks in........

I'll run a small electric space heater in fall & winter months, KB.







So...update on progress from the weekend. Pretty much got all the finishing touches done, though will probably build a shower & toilet outside later.

Camouflage painted the outside, so it's not visible until you get within 75 yds or so of it.







^^^ Started running out of spray paint colors, so camo got a bit more sparse on the east side, but that is the least visible side, with heavy mesquite brush completely concealing the cabin from that direction until you get within 20' of it.

Installed a cell phone amplifier antenna, anchored against the front right corner of the cabin. I get full mobile signal inside, despite being in a metal clad enclosure, out in the middle of nowhere!



Installed a TV, sound bar speaker, and blu-ray player against the wall:



Simple, compact, yet very effective rifle racks:



Storage shelving with hangar bars, table, microwave:





And, bunk bed that you've already seen:

Was that a reference to Cyborg's infamous "pickle bucket" story, Bud?

And then, as icing on the cake, I went and checked the card on my game cam near my blind. This bad boy appears multiple times over the past 2 weeks:

Ted did you make one of those windows an escape hatch incase some clown decided to block the door and cut your power during the night?? One way in and out is never good with a cooler!

There's very little chance of someone messing with it. This is in a VERY remote location, in a very sparsely populated part of the state. The campsite sits on 3000 acres, 1 mile from the main highway off a dirt road behind locked gates, in the second least populated county in the whole state of Texas. The entire county only has 296 people living in it...in the whole county! Most of those people work on a historic cattle ranch, which surrounds the south and eastern property boundaries, 250,000 acres in size. There is no indication of anything being there from the highway, no draw for outsiders intent on crime and mischief. Anyone who even ventures into that part of the state is either just passing through on their way to someplace else, or is a local traveling to and from their farms. The closest city with more than 1000 people living in it is 50 miles away.

If for some reason I was unable to open the door, escaping through a window is a simple matter of just opening the window and removing the screen. 

Of course, it's likely a tight fit for my big arse, but if absolutely necessary, it wouldn't take much effort to knock the whole window out.

So Ted, are you going to build an outhouse, or bring in a port-a-pot?

Mom and dad had some acerage in the area they grew up in with a campsite on it. They brought in an old WPA toilet (outhouse with a concrete floor and base, and vented). After a day or two, I kind of liked the outdoor feeling when using it. Just dig a deep enough hole.
