Old school is best schooled. Yep, I said that but I'm not the only one. I like the idea of light weight layouts built with foam...BUT!! Downside is there are indeed problems to overcome. The only wet blanket that has had a negative impact on me is the one I allow. Boundaries! What power I give away to someone else is because I can't do it myself anymore. I agree that what we need is Evolution and not revolution while hanging on to the values that have made us what we are today!! While I was packing to make this move. Someone did ask me what was one word that best describes how I feel about my time in Big Bear Country? It took me a bit and it could be looked at as a driving force to do better or cash in your chips. One word? "Disappointment." This seems to be the best word to describe my time in Big Bear Country. That could be said of my life's experiences, as well. Seems I've found myself in situations I found disappointing. Somewhat offset by the positive things but it's the negative ones that stand out most in my mind. What I remember most. Here's an example: I happen to like overcast, rainy days and even snow on the ground. I don't like the constant bombardment of Sunny Days. Like I did in Big Bear. Don't believe me! Check out the water level in the lake up there. That isn't because of Global Hot Air. I won't go there. They are sacrificing the lake to blow snow on the mountains for the ski resorts. On both mountains. No the water doesn't eventually melt and refill the lake as they'd have you believe. Evaporation is the key factor here. They do depend on the rain and snow they get to fill the lake. Sun and no weather..... I thought you'd catch on to what I was saying here. I'm stubborn, determined and I'm not a quitter. I make for a good squeaky wheel as I can be rather abrasive like fingernails on a black board. I will continue the good fight to the end. So, what am I going to do with my old layout? As soon as I get some sunshine I'll go out and shoot it. What? What? What did he say?
