    Well I was talking about out near Dodge City- and let me tell you- the humidity is in the negatives.

    I don’t know what exactly that translates to on the chapped lips scale- but I’ll tell you this- as a New Englander- it was a bit too dry for me!!!

    I still love the first 3 years of the 1st generation Cougar. After that, meh.
    I'm a child of the 50s - 60s, I love the mid sixty's era, 63 - 69. Cars like the Cyclone, Fairlane, Nova's, Impalas, most all of those in that era.
    Coming out of the 50s where everything was rounded off, the 60s square bodies, while not very efficient, looked so modern.
    2 of my dream cars are the 1964 - 66 T Bird convertable and the 6t Buick Riviera.

    I drove my wife and her friend so she could bury her parents at Tahoma National Cemetery, her dad was an Army veteran.
    It is a beautifully manicured facility that just beams “Freedom fighters memorial.”
    Was a very impressive honorable ceremony, much like the many I had preformed years ago at Ft. Logan, Co.

    This is the entrance.

    That’s absolutely true- since we have the second lowest COVID rate in the country, apparently city people have been starting to move here from all over the place- Boston, New York, the South, etc- looking for a place with a very low population density and low COVID rate. I’ve been eying down everyone I see with non ME, NH or VT plates- especially Florida because they had the virus so bad and they always seem to be the ones who walk into a store with no mask and feel the need to get as close to the Mainers as possible

    I love it here- but at the same time- all of you out of staters need to stay out!!!!!!! Maine is great because we don’t have any people- we’re one of the last truly remote places east of the Great Plains, more people means less nature.

    If I were to ever leave New England, Montana and Wyoming would be where I’d go, or Alaska

    One place I’d truly want to either retire or vacation is definitely the mountains of Alaska. Just complete utter remote and isolated from the outside world. Put up a wooden cabin out there in the woods, hunt, fish and just live outdoors. I would live out there full time but honestly you can’t make money if your so far away from even the nearest gas station lol.

    But at least as a vacation place would be awesome. Go out there a few times a year when it’s snowing. Have a woodstove, make hot chocolate, go kayaking, hiking, mountain backpacking, grab the AR and go deer hunting during the season and hog hunting whenever I’d like. Just nothing but adventure! :D

    Just being in the outdoors is what I love the most! :p

    We don’t have any hogs in Maine, but we have the best black bear hunting on earth. Here in Maine we have some absolutely remote uninhabited areas too (but not quite to the same degree as Alaska) but your profile says your from East Texas- which is far more densely populated than Maine, so I think you wouldn’t be disappointed with our remoteness, but as you said- you’d be a lot farther from gas or work than you would be in Texas. I live in a fairly rural area here in Southern Maine and have access to the city of Portland (which, is a village of 3 people compared to the cities in Texas, but still, it is somewhat of an economic hub for northern New England). I kind of think I that I have the best of both worlds. I get all the benefits of some of the more isolated parts of Maine- quiet, no crime, beautiful scenery, great hunting, low population density, etc, but I can still drive to Portland for any city amenities. I realize that Portland is nowhere near being a city for most of the country, but it’s got everything I need. I don’t need sky scrapers and the endless suburban wasteland that most people need, Portland has some of the worlds greatest bars and restaurants- that’s enough for me. A grocery store, a gas station, a gun shop and a place to work is all I need
