My E350 work van is the standard length wheelbase, or ~60 sq. ft. behind the seats. If you are living in a van that size or even the 72 sq. ft' version, you gonna find 200' is heaven. In that case, skip the 27'er. I assumed you were living in a house or apt. and wanted to try a yurt. Absolutely need good

insulation

.

I lived in a ~30 sq. ft. 4 season backpacking tent for a few months when I was 24 so I know about small spaces. My 16' yurt beat that big time. Good luck to you guys.

Off topic.

I read an autobiographical book and watched a video called 'Alone in the Wilderness' about Richard Proenneke. Dick built an 11x15 cabin on a backcountry lake northwest of Anchorage Alaska in summer of 1968. Dick had just retired in his 50's and built the cabin by himself, from scratch, and effectively 'dropped out' of society.

He lived in it for several decades. In his later years he did winter in CA. No wife or kids. No dog either.. I never could figure that one out. Dick's cabin still stands today and is open for visit by the Park Service. There's a video on that as well.

Dick had supplies float planed in by a good friend for a few years, but ended up buying and rebuilding a Piper Cub with floats some years later. He crashed that float plane attempting to fly over a pass and broke his back. Of course this was in the middle of nowhere, but he did manage to crawl up to a gravel road that was nearby that saved his life. The book and video are definitely worth a look.

OK I'm out on this. Good luck to you two.

Yup that's it. The version I used to watch was narrated by a different man, plus the music was haunting, and captured the Alaskan spirit a whole lot better. Imo this is a bootleg copy.
