    Well, spring is not that far away. Anyone here feeling the winter blues and looking forward to warmer weather? The weather was a little warmer here last week and I got some outdoor range time in.

    I like to do a little motorcycle riding, fishing, BBQ'n and of course shooting!

    Anyone else ready for spring?

    Well, the gun shows help me through winter. I hurt my shoulder, so I cant shoot right now. Going to physical therapy for it, so I should be OK soon. At least it timed right. I need to start getting the Old Dodge in my avatar ready for the season.

    I live in south Louisiana. IT SUCKS!!!!!!! I wasn't ment to live in this humid heat. I can't breath in it. I watch my workers in the summer moving around and enjoying it. In the winter I walk outside with short sleeves and they got jackets on. They are frozen in place and I'm moving with no problem. So no, I dont like summer. Not here, I think I could deal with south west Tx heat alot better.

    I can't wait for all this blasted ice to go away! Half of my world is encased in ice, I really don't want to fall and break anything.

    I was raised in wisconsin. One of my first jobs away from home also was in louisianna. No thanks. Moved around in many states in my early years. Done my career almost 40 years on the hot mohave dessert in california. A human shouldnt live in that heat but it was my job. Now retired, I moved here at cedar city, utah at 6,000 feet. We get a regular winter but the heat is bearible in summer. If I want more heat I need only drive 50 miles to 2,000 feet and suffer a extra 30 degrees no matter what time of the year. Want it cooler ? 10 miles behind me its 10,000 feet.
    My thing is rideing quad. I am waiting for the snow to melt!
