Good to see that you've gotten mobile enough to gain access to a computer.

Any winter in Northern Minnesota/North Dakota is interesting. In that northern tier of states, living in a house with a wood-burning stove was intolerable. Living in a tent? I can't imagine.

I have to believe that the galvanized Yanks might have occasionally wished themselves to back in the temperate climes of Camp Douglas or Rock Island. When minus 40 is not unusual (and it ain't), I just jink up the thermostat to 70.

When I think of the Georgia-born galvanized yank walking sentry in a far-north winter ... brrrrr.
