Thank you for the advice Tom & Jerry.. (wait, Tom and Jerry..talking to me?! I love your work, Bugs Bunny doesn't hold a candle IMO & you can tell him i said that, that arrogant little so and so...).
More seriously, i live in what i call the "semi-south" (mid VA) and yeah, if it's hot and muggy enough out, i rather not go backpacking. Thankfully though, the "mountains" of Blue-ridge etc tend to be a bit cooler.
Jerry, too right, 24% too high to be exact (and in another case, plus another 10%), but if there is a severe enough collapse, that money will disappear faster than disappearing ink anyways. The U.S. is one really screwed up/imbalanced country and on so, so many levels. It's beyond repair and saving at this point. I joke, laugh, and smile, so i don't cry.
