  • Now, this looks like something cool to do. I actually don’t live in your part of the state, but come up there on occasion. But this is the sort of stuff I’d be doing if I did live there. I’m seriously considering a move up there after I become sort of semi-retired, which won’t be too far from now. Somehow I get that it’s not all about deranged hillbillies with shaved heads and tattooed faces, in possession of small arsenals and quantities of dope, getting all busted out in seedy hotels. I mean, it is if you look for it. But, if you focus on the positive you’ll get positive results. Somebody please tell me if I’m full of it and don’t know what I’m talking about. For all I know, that undesirable element is so prevalent up there that it’s constantly in your face, and you can’t avoid it.

  • Watering the ferns?? Hear
    In the Radwoods?? Crazy man
    All the same you’ll love it hear
