Mystic Lake Casino just held a drawing last week for the "Extreme Ice House
". And now one 62-year-old Apple Valley man is living the high life in his literal home on the ice. Just don't leave that sucker out on the ice too long or it's a goner.
Only in Minnesota.
So what features does the crème de crème of fishing shacks have? It sounds more luxurious than most of our apartments combined.
The ice house has a bathroom, furnace, stereo, wrap-around leather furniture, microwave, mini refrigerator, flat-screen television, DVD player, satellite dish, six fish holes, an oven, and an air conditioner, says the Prior Lake American
. That's in addition to all of the fishing equipment and electronics you'll find inside.
Here is how Roger Gilmore described it: "It's the crème de crème of a fishing shack - so you can't call it a shack. I have never seen anything like it in my life!"
His past ice fishing experiences? Literally sitting on a bucket looking in a hole in the ice. He'll never be the same again.
