    Cool man! You'll have to tell us what the cost of heating it during these temps is when your bill comes next month, I have those same temps here 30 miles west of Minneapolis, MN and have always wanted a GH.

    I was just about to say the same thing.
    That's the first vent. hybrid I've seen that I really like.


    Keep it up, that's a great setup!

    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
