The Million Dollar Cabin

Before I begin, the website you need to visit now is

The Million Dollar Cabin is falling down!!!

If you don't know what that is - it's the cabin used for both the interior and exterior "cabin-in-the-forest" scenes from the 1993 masterpiece film "THE VANISHING." It was also used in a few other productions.

It is on Boy Scout property at a place called Camp Pigott on the Cascade Scout Reservation in Chief Seattle Council. Traditionally it has been used for staff housing, but if I'm able to fix it up - I'd love to turn it into the Cascade Scout Museum or even a Moviemaking/ Communications/ Theatre merit badge house.

LEGALLY, this fundraising effort is not affiliated with the BSA, Camp Pigott, or Chief Seattle Council - I am raising the money individually to fix up the cabin, and then I will donate all the money raised to the Council for that specific purpose. Otherwise the money will be allocated to the General Camp Fund and probably used to buy coffee for the Round Table. I am also not legally authorized to solicit funds from BSA employees. So this is not that either. This is all donations.

If you are a movie buff, or if you are just into the Scouting movement, please consider donating FIVE DOLLARS to the GoFundMe that I've set up at
