Nebraska - Iowa State 2008 Tailgate

It's on Oct 18. in Ames, IA. I will be parking next to Adam Granzow and his bus in the D2 lot. I will be pulling in a trailer with a hot tub on it, should be a great time so if anyone is coming for the game come by and say hi.

Dan and his amazing bus parks in the next lot just across the ditch so make sure to check out his bus too. http://www.skoolie.net/gallery2/main...2_itemId=11948

Re: Nebraska - Iowa State 2008 Tailgate

Got everything on the trailer and ran our experiments on how to actually heat the thing when we get down there. We have both propane and electric heater circulations worked up to keep this thing hot all night and throughout Saturday.

Here are some pictures from our experiments, we ran different heating ideas and watched how many degrees it increased five gallons over fifteen minutes. A 1000 watt block heater was able to increase five gallons one degree every minute.

Success! We were able to power everything like normal off a generator so we didn't need any of our engineered heaters after all.

I recall seeing another jacuzzi on here that had nicer (hotter) looking occupants.
