    I'm retired and have been into this since mel tappen and the 80's. Ate my first Oregon freeze dried meal in RVN in 1970. Glad to be part of the group. I won't bore you all with what I used to do.

    I'm from the UP. We talk like Canadians up there. We add "eh?" to sentences. Like, "Let's go, eh?" Another thing you hear is "ya" instead of "yes".

    I have noticed a slight difference from the west to east though.EH v/s A.
    The population base has gone way down, a lot of homes and property for sale. Some way out in no mans land. You can afford a house in town and a camp if your retirement is ok. AVG household income in area is about 22-24 thou per year. Best jobs of course are .gov jobs.
