I grew up in the north land; weorked in the oil fields of ND, MT, and WY for 49 years. I had all the cold, snow, ice, freezing rain, etc. to do me for two lifetimes. When I retired I promptly bought a place here in sunny AZ and sold out in the cold country! But you go ahead and enjoy, I don’t miss it al all; but do miss some of the people.It must suck for you in Texas, only having two seasons…
Too hot, and not quite as hot.
Not only do we Northerners not mind the cold and snow, many of us actually enjoy it.
I love the different seasons we have. If you’ve never had a snowball fight or made a snowman and snow angels with your kids, they are missing out.
I had a snowmobile once. The most dependable motorized device I ever owned. I could depend on it to get me a long way from home, then die……..every time.Also amazing for snowmobiling. If you have never had the opportunity it would blow your mind, a much bigger rush than sxsing IMO.
Would you happen to have the route written out for the back way you went to Cleator? Am heading up there this weekend from Black Canyon City and looking for something a bit more exciting than the regular Maggie Mine to Bumble Bee route.I was just out on the same trail, we call it the Back Way To Cleator in AZ last weekend. I took my neighbor that has never been, It's always a blast so show some beautiful country to someone new.
I took him back in a mine I found some 15+ years ago. It still looks the same with the walls white with a mineral and dripping. Then instead of taking the main road back from Cleator we took the scenic route up and over the mountains. It looked like they graded some of the bottom of the hill climb and road up to it that was all washed out and full of lose rocks recently.
