I'll help play bloodhound, although up here it's better to play Husky!

I found the lodge.
They don't expect her for a couple of weeks.
It is really cold.

I am willing for McCool to contact me if he wants to venture into the area as I might have a few pointers to keep him out of trouble!

Anna before they carved up my shoulder I knew I would have 6 weeks of not much to do so I hit the "bargain" bins of dvds at every store I happened to be in, I found some good stuff for $5.00 or less including a 3 disc history of WW1 that was way better than I expected for $5.00. I also hit the bargain bins at the book store for the same type of stuff.

While I live alone, your situation is different because you won't be laid up during your stay there I just thought I would throw that out here.

those are good ideas. i do that at WalMart in their $5 DVD bins. there can be some decent movies found if you look anddig around in the bins.

How about buying one of those language learning programs? 2 months seems like a good deal of time to get a start on a language if that is something you ever wanted to do. Or make a scheduled training plan for the 2 months and learn a new skill or hobby. Make a paracord sling? Bring beer making supplies and do some home brew. Learn to tie flies. Basically just try to get out of bed every day, and don't be lazy. Otherwise your reintroduction to society could be tough.
