    I usually don't, but then she quits feeding me and my hearing gets better...:D
    The moving has been shelved for a few years due to military service so I will just have to visit for the time being.
    And live vicariously through ride reports...

    Hey, hey-- everyone lighten up on the guy. Seriously. Isn't this the sort of sentiment we want to encourage? (Tho' I suppose in your own way, you are)

    This place can be a downright cold, harsh, lonesome, God-forsaken bug pit.
    Pass it on! (doubly-so if they vote differently than I do)
    :wink:

    All depends on your perspective I guess. One's cold, harsh, lonesome, God-forsaken bug pit can be another man's paradise. :D Kind of like back in the day when I lived in North Texas. People would tell me, "why are you leaving? This is God's country." I usually replied, "well then, you and God can keep it to yourselves, I'm leaving and I won't let the door hit me in the ass." :lol3

    :rofl

    It aint for everyone, that's for sure, and that's a good thing. After a couple of years in Alaska, the thing I hate most is that its way more expensive to fix a snow machine after flipping it across the rocks than it is to fix a bike after doing the same. :lol3 My skills are improving though. :D

    Fixing skills or riding skills?
    They are inversely related. :rofl
