HI!

See that?
I capitalized my title!
Anyhow, Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well!
That it, I was going to say more but I got sidetracked and now I forget what it was.
Obviously I'm new here.
I'll shut up now....

Cheers!

I wish both, its hotter than hell where I am at the moment, and as for ice I love it, that and snow and nice cold air especially when I wake up. Actually in general, needing covers while sleeping is great. When its too hot you can only get so naked before the police start to get edgy. I did think that out believe it or not, I just forgot all about what i was thinking because I got something horribly complicated to work and lost track of just about everything else. The capitalization is my once every thousand year attempt to follow the rules, the next thousand should be splendid and filled with a sense of almost neverending freedom.

Re: HI!

You'll have to meet our own ArcticAstrid or just plain 'Astrid' from northwestern B.C. (which sometimes feels like the Arctic.) Polar opposite?

Welcome aboard

Re: HI!

Welcome,
So in addition to being new, you're also rather witty. I like your line about 5-0 so much that I may have to steal it ;-) And as to the covers thing +1.

Thanks!
Here at 1*15"N it's always hot. We run air conditioners so we can sleep under covers. May as well tear up $100 bills each month - LOL...

Naked sleeping? Is there any other way?

However, we'll have to part ways on the snow and ice thing. Snow belongs on Christmas cards and mountains not my back yard.

But I am from Socal. Surf in the morning and ski in the afternoon.

Re: HI!

We have flurries in the forecast for tomorrow night. The last few nights it has got down to 25 or so, but I don't turn the furnace on yet in the motorhome, just throw a few more blankets on. Mind you, it gets nipply in the mornings.

Sound sleeping springs to mind as opposed to naked, but still the lower the temperature the better the sleep, if you wake up and theres the possibility of your nostrils freezing shut your incentive to keep sleeping goes way up, its terrific. Surfing on the other hand is something I would love to do, I love skiing and have never had a chance to try snowboarding....
There is some great surf music further down in this post.

Lucky you! my forecast is sun with patchy inferno, no blankets, no sheets...
25 or so sounds splendid to me. Nipply here causes inverted nipples, they are trying to hide I think....

Not so much witty as daft, why would someone who loves cold live somewhere blazingly hot? It took me a while to figure out 5-0, its a reference to Danno and crew right? Anyway its all yours! No theft needed.
Didnt that show have Dic Dale doing the theme music?
Hmmmm.....
Its not this:


The covers thing is terrible, I miss them, sweat is not a good blanket!
