I was just thinking of this idea the other day. Then, boom! There it is.....always a nickel short and a minute too late.  Looking forward to seeing some reviews on this place.....

That's some serious George Jetson right there. I wonder if it comes with complimentary sunscreen.

Yea, the idea of staying in a bubble......

Nice to watch the night sky, but the daytime, not so sure.

All kidding aside, this place looks really interesting. I may have to stay there. I'm wondering if I left a 5lb turkey on the bed while I was out dayhiking, would it be fully roasted by the time I got home?

I believe they are shaded during the day.
