Well this is one person you don't have to worry about stopping and fishing there. I've been there twice in the summer and I find it toooo hot for my liking. And as for winter you can keep it When I was much younger I spent a year in Greenland. It was over the winter mostly. So no thanks for being there any time soon. P.S. I was born in Sheboygan Wisc.

Jim,

I was close to you in Greenland, something else in common.

Specifically here,

After spending a year there working avionics on fighter interceptors I now look back in retrospective as the beginning of my preparation for winter steelheading.

FYI, light snow storm in Chicago today 4-6 inches of new snow going to the teens tonight and 20s next few days.

I don't think that you were very close to me there. I was there in '55 and'56. I don't think you were very old at that time. Jim :hehe:

Around that Nam thing I think I was 4 f at that time. Damn near got killed at work. Got my head busted open at work. Now have hole in my head. I think that I should have had a plate put in it. When it happened I asked the Doc how big of hole I was going to have and he said about as big as a pencil end. Well he lied,it's about as big as a nickle. So I watch where I put my head so I don't ever hit myself on it. It happened in '65 I think. Jim S.
