Congrats Jim. I know you will enjoy it. Come visit the Driftless Region with it and stop by for some homebrews.

Driftless region

You should probably explain that the Driftless Region refers to the lack of glacial activity and also country so pretty you don't want to ever drift away.
We really enjoy the driftless region in N.E. Iowa too.

Thanks, though until Dave explained the Driftless Region I did not understand it. Homebrews I know very well, and would love to stop by.

Read once that Wisconsin the only place into the world where geologist can study the effect 3 different glacier migrations since all 3 of them had places they stopped somewhere in the state.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Driftless_Area

I was referring to the duration of your silence.

Oh, by the way, congratulations. Yah, no surprise you've been dropping hints and expressing your dream for quite a while.

Admittedly, silence is a tough thing for me.

And thanks, I was actually enjoying playing the silence game, but just did not have the sticktoitivnous to keep up the charade any longer.

I always thought the Drifters came from the driftless region!! Congrats on your 2015 5.0 Jim, I may have to wait for all these upgrades and get in line for 2017 unless I can I take someone's 2016 slot.

Thanks, Jim. I am pretty sure at some point you will be upgrading anyway, might as well get it over with.

First time I was in Wisconsin, I saw a field that had recently been plowed. I told my host that I had never seen dirt so black and rich that it looked like potting soil. He explained that glaciers brought a lot of rich deposits to Wisconsin. I'd love to garden there; lots better than clay!
