This tub lived a happy life, and eventually it was leaking (wood, in New Mexico, dries up), and I was getting too old to clean it every 7-10 days, on my knees, in all weather.
It was one of the most fun things we ever had, and I'm leaving the page for the memories, and the photos of friends. The format is for computers, not phones.
We love this fire-and-water toy supreme, from the Snorkel Stove Company. Ours is a 6x3' tub; they make larger and smaller than this. It comes as a kit. They sell two kinds of steps, but Keith made his own (and the deck). Some photos of other people's tubs are here: The Snorkel Hot Tub Photo Gallery and Owner Comments with Photos. There are other families' photos here.
More photos are here, with views of the stove and set-up.
