Then your last name is appropriate. I assume it's pronounce Freezin'?
I'm in warm sunny NC now, but I grew up in northern Maine. Coldest
I've ever experienced was -58 F (-50 C) without factoring in wind
I feel your pain.
I used to bike to university all winter--big skidoo boots, mitts up to
my elbows, ski goggles, face mask...
My personal best is -63C with windchill. But once you get below -30 or
so it really doesn't matter...you just pile on more insulating layers.
Hey Josh, I'm still up here in northern Maine, Presque Isle to be exact.
Originally from Fort Kent. Still cold here, just like you left it, though
winter's been a bit milder then normal. Are you from "the county"?
Cool! I graduated in '89 from Fort Kent!! It's a small world! I'll have
to check you out in my old year book. Do you still have relatives up here?
Looking forward to the dog sled races coming up in March. Hard to come by
woodworkers up here in northern Maine. Too bad you're in NC. Jeff
I looked you up this morning, and I recognize you. Definitely a small
My parents still live up there. My mom teaches at Fort Kent HS, but
she wasn't there when you were. My father is one of the most talented
woodworkers I've ever met; I wish I had a tenth of his skill. I can
send you his email address if you're ever looking for a good resource
in the area. If you've ever done any hunting or fishing in Wallagrass
or Eagle Lake, you might know him. He was the game warden there for 20
years. Of course, that also might change your opinion of him. ;-)
Hi Josh, I wrote back yesterday but I must of hit a wrong button because it
never went through. I actually have done quite a bit of hunting and fishing
but have never met up with a game warden. I used to go up to Wallagrass
(and still do on occasion) for partridge hunting. I'm sure it would be
interesting to meet your dad some day, I'm always looking for insight from
more experienced woodworkers. If you're ever in Presque Isle and got some
spare time look me up! Jeff
