    On the local news last evening there were people who moved into our end of Idaho to get way from heavy populations and traffic bitching about the more recent move ins who are causing the same problems here. Now go figure that.

    Even in little old Blackfoot there now is rush hour traffic. Two good things about that are 1) rush hour is only 15 minutes, well maybe only 10, long and 2) I can avoid it except when I neglect to remember.

    Also they are bellyaching about an average commute of 24.5 min one way. Sheese:rolleyes:

    Traffic? Commute?

    Naw...I live 300 yds. from MY WORK....and traffic...there ain't! But I was over near Atlanta last week and I can tell you now that there ain't enuff money in all the banks of Atlanta to make me live within 100 miles radius of that place!! If God wanted to send me to hell....all he'd have to do is send me to Atlanta, New Orleans, Chicago, NYC. or anywhere on the 'Left Coast'!!

    Sharpsman,

    Sweet ride. Like the Satloc guidance. I was for a time a Satloc ground dealer. I do variable rate precision ag stuff. My commute is measured in feet. From the kitchen to my office is about 20 feet.

    Just got down from taking some aerial photos, the starting point for variable rate fert/seeding/etc files. Local frarmer owns/flys a Balanca Scout. Was a nice afternoon. As we were taxiing to the end of the runway I noticed an AgCat. And asked who belongs to that. He said "my sister and I". I busted a gut. You should have heard his story of flying it from Lewiston (North) Idaho to Blackfoot (South) Idaho through those large wild fire areas. I bust another gut during that tale.

    I don't fly 'em. I just ride with pilots that do. Between their ag experience and back country experience I feel pretty safe. All I do is run the gps and camera.

    What's really fun is looking for strays after round up in the mountains. We get down not quite close enough to read the brand but can darn sure see the color of that 3 sq inch ear tag.:cool:
