I agree Lamar!! I went to Vegas for the 1st time the first week of Feb. For them it's a very mild winter, but it hit 70 each day...felt fantastic. Saw Lake Mead and Hoover Dam. I can't look at water without wanting to fish it. The last 2 days here in the Kalamazoo, MI area we've gotten dumped on with snow. I'm 48, but each year retiring for 3-4 months in the winter down south sounds better and better-really never thought i'd feel that way. I typically love ice-fishing, but have only been out 3 times...I just want to get the boat out!!!! I do have a 4x4 Tacoma so I do great in the snow, but my daughter has gotten stuck at the end of the drive multiple times from the snow plow pile...not fun. Got to stay strong the next month/half or 2!!!
