Thanks for rubbing it in. But you know what this message means...are you up for long term visitors?

From Jon on Thu, Jan 10, 2013 at 19:04:27 from

Jeff and Cody, you guys are more than welcome to come visit for as long as you want. Or you could move here! As long as you don't mind a crying baby at 2 am.

Have you considered that, just maybe, living and training in such an environment makes one soft and that our more extreme conditions contribute to our extreme toughness and fortitude?

Just sayin.

From Jon on Sat, Jan 12, 2013 at 05:31:11 from

Rob- I'll gladly admit cold is hard. And I'll let you guys keep your toughness and fortitude, and I'll keep my 70 deg winter days... :)
