Q: Papa Sark, the word of the street is that though your music melts faces, your engineering is woefully deficient in preventing a pioneer northwoods cabin from collapsing. True, very true, or plead 5th?
A: A plastic tarp, a flat piece of ground to pitch a tent on, clean water to draw, available firewood, and a box of mac & cheese. That's the threshold, below it poverty, above it, over-indulgence.
