Roll up doors are generally not as energy efficient, not sure if that is a concern or not. When the door is closed the light is usable and winch would be also. Would just have to slide it back out of the way when you raise the door. I've had to deal with enough issues on roll ups that I would stay away from them myself.

Did you ever pull your own tooth.

Let me tell you about it. Two years ago I was chomping, down on some fat fall goose soup, and bit the bullet (so to speak) use to be able to get away with doing that to lead BBs but not steal. I split my tooth in two, right down the center, There was a filling in the middle, I had since I was a kid,It popped out.

I lived with it for two years, didn't bother me that bad, until this morning, it was aching pretty good, must of been grinding my teeth when I slept. Only the inside half was very painful, the outside was still ok.

So I got serious and dug around and found this rusty snap ring pliers ,and cleaned off the old grease, bent the tips in, and had a plan of clamping down and yanking out the bad half of the tooth. No dentist here.

Well I managed to get ahold of the tooth and had a pretty good grip. Now a person needs to dig down in ones self, and gather up all the testicular fortitude he can muster for that painful moment when he gives a yank, And by God you better get it on the first try, or it might be cry to mommy time.

Well I gave it a yank, and honestly it was much worse in my mind, but still not a pleasant afternoon. Now the pain is gone and will do it again, if ever needed. Amazingly I still have all my teeth ,despite chewing tobacco for over 30 years, now minus the inside half of my upper molar. Cosmetically it still looks fine, since the outside of the tooth is still there. grin

My apologies if you were eating when you opened this thread. lol

Had similar happen in Prince Willie many years agoósplit my right canine from bottom to top. No way out so did the dirty with a pair of pliers. Still remember that and that was 1975-76.

I had a toothache in grade 2 so the teacher sent me home. My mom was out grocery shopping so I grabbed the butter knife that was left by the back door jammed it between my teeth and pryed that sucker out. Mom came home to a lot of blood on the back porch. Was probably easier being a baby tooth but still pretty sore.

God bless America, Yukon! You are either very tough, very crazy, or very desperate. One time in sheep country I was driving down a steep slope to a creek bottom. Only problem was there was a straight 4 foot drop, no incline whatsoever. I couldn't go backwards, so I stood there on my Summit with my .22-250 on the front of me (we travel like that so it won't get snowy). I figured that if I did go down, those skis would do what they're supposed to do, hit the ice and move forward. Nope! Not the case this time. I planted straight vertical. Next thing I know I'm flipping upside down over the handlebars and land on the frozen creek. The fall takes the wind out of my lungs one shot...then comes the .22-250 barrel...right on my two front teeth. Oh man, that hurt! I stood up, looked around to see if anyone else saw this embarrassment. I take off my glove and feel for my teeth thinking the worst. I'll be toothless for the rest of my life. Fortunately they were still there but they were bent in facing inward towards my throat. OMG! I grabbed my ski loops and set the Summit on the ice and drove one-handed to my buddy Ricky Ashby's cabin 10 miles down-creek with the other hand holding my messed up teeth.

He's a tribal doctor kind of guy. Immediately I showed him my teeth. Now mind you we're 104 miles from Kotzebue, 60 from Noatak and no soul in between. He felt my teeth and said what no grown man should hear: " I'm gonna pull your teeth outward, it's gonna hurt, hang on, bud." He pulled my teeth from straight back to straight forward! Oh man, that hurt! I could feel little strings in my gums breaking. I was asking why he has to pull them so far out, he said they have to come way forward if they are to settle straight again. After that, he had me hold them forward all night. Then at night I fell asleep and let go. Sure enough, next morning in that quiet log cabin I woke up and felt my teeth with my tongue to see if his crazy theory was true. Sure enough, straight and completely in line again! Perfectly in line and have been ever since.

My wifes grandfather Amiqgok Brown was well known in his younger days (early 1900's) for being able to knock a body out and remove a tooth before they could wake up.
Her Cousin Franklin has their grandfathers sets of pliers with different gripping cavity's at differing angles for just that.

Pop you on the jaw and catch you falling, snorring,......... tooth out asap.........


What would the Founding Fathers do?

Life can get tough when you need a dentist and none near. In the old days, must of been normal to pull your own tooth, or have your buddy, or wife do it for you.

Fish are biting the net in this warm weather.

Yukon Jeff can you tell me what those sheefish are like I think Iíve seen them posted before and wondered Iíve had salmon, artic char, and of course walleye, cod, and northern pike. They look like they would be very tasty.

Yes they are pretty good. Can be a bit mushy in the summer time, They are best now, until spring. Could compare them to Whitefish. Or Cod maybe.

Seems like that happens here also, once the water gets cold the fish do seem firmer the worst part is sometimes when there is ice some fish can get pretty wormy. Some the best walleyes here are in the spring just as the ice leaves or is leaving.
