When I was a bit younger I did similar things. I is amazing what a few guys can do with an ice chest and a grill.

That's interesting. That kind of remark never occurred to me, nor have I heard it before. Trapped in the north means spending time up here?
Kind of derogatory, don't you think, if that's what he meant?

I think it has more to do with not wanting to deal with the snow anymore.
I'm sorry your perception of people that live above Nashville is slighted like it is.

I have worked up north a few times. The people are the same as anywhere, most good with a few bad apples thrown in. I hate the winters. I hope to never see snow or feel a freezing cold wind again.

I like that Florida has no state tax!
No snow, reduced taxes... if it weren't for big bugs I'd be in heaven
