I’m getting cabin fever!

Traditionally, the term cabin fever referred to the restless, irritable, and claustrophobic feeling one gets after being stuck indoors for an extended period of time.  Here in the upper mid-west, severe winters can cause a person to feel cabin fever by mid January.  It’s been one of those kinds of winters this year, and we’re now well beyond mid January, it’s the 22nd day of February.

Our misery this year has been exacerbated by a winter of sinus infections, colds, and flu bugs.  Sadly, we even had to cancel an outing to see some kinky lifestyle friends tonight, we’re just feeling too ill.   As much as it would have been good to get away, I don’t want to pass along the crud that’s getting me down.  I just can’t visit our misery on others.

So, cabin fever is in full force, in our home, and in the homes of many others in our region who find themselves stuck inside.  But, while the standard form of cabin fever is certainly relevant, I’m really talking about Kinky Kabin fever!  That means it’s getting to be time to plan our next Kinky Kabin outing.

I already mentioned our remote and rustic getaway in last week’s Sinful Sunday post1  Without electricity or even water, the Kinky Kabin is quite rustic indeed.  Remote is a relative term in Iowa, it’s relatively hard to find anywhere that’s not within a couple miles of a neighbor’s farmhouse.  With that said, the Kinky Kabin isn’t accessed by vehicle, it’s about a mile hike from the nearest road.

It’s a “pack-it-in” and “pack-it-out” sort of facility.  We have even purchased a special hand cart to push/pull along with our gear, so we don’t have to make multiple trips with backpacks just carry our bedding, food, and water.  Of course, the ulterior motive for the handcart wasn’t so much the case of bottled water we invariably consume over an extended weekend, it was really purchased so I could carry more of my bondage and BDSM gear out for our Kinky Kabin escapades.

The cabin is 30 feet long and something like 20 feet wide, so it gives us over 600 square feet of playspace (less the area taken by a couple of bunk beds and a picnic table.)   The brightest white gas lantern we could find provides illumination at night.  Although it casts harsh shadows, the lantern provides just enough light for my trusty NikonD7000 to focus and shoot inside after dark.  What more could a kinky photography junkie ask for?

The last time we visited the Kinky Kabin was over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  It was a truly memorable occasion that included an interrogation scene and a plastic wrap mummification.  It also featured two different women getting their clothes cut off via my friend Alpha’s machete.  Great memories were made, oh what fun it was!

So, now I’ve set the dates for our return to the Kinky Kabin in March.  Let’s let cabin fever melt away and Kinky Kabin Fever begin!  There’s so much to look forward to, that a quick look back seems in order.  Today’s images of Serafina at the Kinky Kabin are from our visit there in October 2013.
