    I wish he would do the same over at WRSA also…He is a demented old man that is miserable and wants to drag everyone down in the mud with him…

    You have to push yourself through the pain of difficult situations,I just got back from 5 days of scouting hunting locations,setting up blinds,and doing some serious target shooting. Humping all that shit in the woods is getting harder every year-and I work out 5 days a week.
    Those who are slugs that sit on the couch and watch TV are in for a hell of a shock.
    Cutting trees-lots of standing dead ash trees-splitting wood,hauling water,digging a latrine-it’s work.
    It never gets easier-you just get used to it.
    It’s a thousand times better to already be used to it-than it is to suddenly find yourself,and your family in a similar situation.
