Jeff W, that wouldn't be unmanly. Heck, I was 8 years old before I figured out my name wasn't "Get Wood".

OK, but from where did they relocate? California? New York? Where?

What the heck good are the favorable gun laws when your hands are too frozen to pull the darn trigger? My wife wants to move there and I was wondering if it would be considered unmanly to have her fetch the firewood from the front porch? I liked the views and the full flavored Cowboy Coffee.

"You girls obviously do not consider much beyond creature comfort."

Spoken like the rash youth that you are. When you're even close to being as old a I am, you will, by God's grace, be entitled to your creature comforts, and will gladly take what few you can get.

You girls obviously do not consider much beyond creature comfort. Check the laws to find the most gun-friendly state and Montana is at the top of the list. Manufacturers think about such things.

"Snow in June is just not acceptable."

Man, that is funny! I would add that, here in the Ozarks, we complain if there's any snow in March!

Wow! Any further north and they'd be in Canada. Some of their profits will be spent on snow removal. I was near Livingston in June of this year and witnessed snow falling. Had to return to the rented cabin and fire-up the heater. Snow in June is just not acceptable.
