This may be the silliest conversation yet in this esteemed group, but I have to say Jack is a fighter. The words "I am wrong" will never pass his lips. We should all just give up now!

Regards,

George

At that point, the Red River flows south to north as it is in the Hudson Bay watershed (as are the Tetons). It turned out to be a pleasant afternoon. The point is that the locals (as all of we locals are want when out of towners are around) were more than happy to talk about the locale.
