    We don't mind tourists $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ as long as they go home. It's the ones who hang around and try to turn Alaska into California that get some of us (at least me) excited.:eek1:2guns:shoot:gun1

    Lucky for us it looks like 6USMC6 is form the better half of VA :clap I lived in Woodstock for a bit while going to school. If I ever moved back that's the area I would go.

    Nice! And mild (you didn't get banned to the basement).

    I have friends in New Hampshire. Transplants come up from Mass to get away from taxes and then raise hell because there are limited services. Locally, they are called massholes. We have the same problem out in the valley. We get commuters that buy houses in small developments who then bitch and whine because their gravel road doesn't get the 2 inches of snow that fell plowed of of it. It's nice and quiet living out here but we still have to put up with "tourists".

    I really appreciate the insights - and the candor guys. Please keep it up.

    +1 on this. I used it with a thermarest z fold mattress pad. Extremely comfortable.....well for a cot anyways!! You could probably save space with one of the other type mattress pads. Pretty much all the research I did showed the cot with a mattress pad to be the way to go.
