T-shirt! Would be a good one.

Many things will not touch my hands again, such as a rake, a paint brush, and a SNOW SHOVEL

in my wife's small home town in South Dakota the ones in town are known as "the summer people" .... if they spend the summer on one of the lakes in the area they refer to them as "the lake people" .... I'm happy to say we fall in the summer people group ..

Although, if you're coming up here to escape the heat, it's not uncommon for my area in BC to hit over 100 F. in the summer!

Not so fast Buddy, you are talking about God's country! LOL

100F is actually rare. One or two days. Average is high 80's.

LOL. In the Yukon where I was raised they were simply "Americans" said with a bit of awe and shaking of heads, that someone would be so intrepid as to travel the Alaska highway back then (the 60s and 70s) when it was only 1 1/2 lanes of gravel with sheer drops on both sides and highway death toll markers on every corner. We couldn't understand anyone who would drive it just for fun.

I suppose for those of us in the mid-west that go north in the summer and south in the winter we are just nameless revenue/tourists/damn Yankees for everyone else.

Actually I think I'd have gotten a real kick from it. It amazes my DW that I can drive a bus 48 hours a week all school year, and than consider it a vacation driving my 36' MH all over the country. Driving the remote areas is a reward unto itself.
