    At least your in the US I'm stuck in Paris France for another month training on oilfield technology. Decent weather, horrible food, rude people. I was asked if I was a criminal because I own guns. (desktop photo brought up the conversation) I would kill for a elk steak, some mashed potatoes and a few hours of shooting prairie dogs.

    I hear you ... I was never impressed with Paris. I did enjoy my trips to Normandy though. People are a lot friendlier there than the Parisians.

    Hang in there, you'll be home soon.

    Temps aren't fun either.

    I've been here most of my life, 55 years old now. It's nothing like the N.W. of the United States. I own 160 acres in Sweetwater Wyoming about 20 miles west of Rawlins. When I get out there I hate coming home. FEENIX enjoy your vacation with your son. gun)

    No, but believe me my USAF career and as a military brat, has taken me to places with extreme temps (hot and cold) and other unpleasant environmental factors.

    Get yourself over to one of the local springs and soak for a while.
    72 degree water year round, they'll cool you down real quick like. :)

    I went thru Trenton today on my way to Cheifland. I live just down the road from Little River Springs in O'Brien, nice place and cool water. gun)

    Chartered this for a half-day of family fishing tomorrow ... hopefully, we get lucky and end up with some catch(es) of the day.

    Good time of year to fish up there. Do you get a guide with your charter or are you on your own? What species are you targeting?

    Yes! Not targeting any particular species but today, guys were getting back with mostly red snappers and groupers ... and I'll be thankful with anything we reel in legally.

    Thanks!

    Yep, it has been a few years but I remember them days, hated, hated, hated it, esp. when I have to gas up ... I couldn't get away fast enough. :D

    We were here last Thanksgiving too and I was getting some weird looks wearing shorts and t-shirts. :)

    BTW, I complain about the heat in Montana too. ;)
