No need to drive south each winter

Just buy 117 straw bales and stay the winter in Ontario Canada. Why didn't I think of that??? Be sure to check out the picture in the article.

In Wisconsin straw bales don't make the miserable winter weather any better.

Right now it's 18 degrees F, and snowing, at my home in WI.... but it's 61 degrees F, and sunny, here in Waco, TX.

Hmmm . . . That van looks suspiciously like the Red Green Possum Van. It is in Canada after all.

Good eye Nick! Maybe he got the idea from an old Red Green Show.
If there is Duct Tape involved, for sure it is RG.

117 bales for a small class B..... What's the conversion factor for a medium class A?

Why not just build a large igloo for a garage? Cheaper that hay and you'll have ice for your drinks..
