Maybe. Not closer to population centers though. Insurance wont cover house fires if you use one. My insurance guy was very interested when we discussed how it could have been built and he even went to bat to defend the use of one to a few ins. companies but they all rejected the idea based on the lack of official govt certifications.

Yeah, that and Coors Light. Neither are beer. They taste more like carbonated water with a tiny bit of alcohol in it.

A couple years back, I watched a middle aged Francophone couple at a $10 "buffet chinois" stuffing eggrolls and chicken balls in a backpack while eating dinner. Sad...

agreed.....

And thanks for the wedding congrats all! It was really fun! We did the ceremony on our front porch. Had a big bbq after. Neighbors popped over with their kids. There was twice as many kids as adults so it was plenty of laughing (and some whining). All in all, a great day

And now my family and I are on vacation until Sept. 2nd

No mosquitoes?

I watch shows filed in Alaska frequently and always get distracted when I see a moose carried away by mosquitoes in the background. You don't have these little blood devils?
