Pore retirement recon trip

Postby k9mark » July 14th, 2017, 5:25 pm

Well, after a recon trip to Idaho scouting retirement locations, it looks like Ammon will be it! I will be fishing the snake, Henry's, warm, fall, firehole, Yellowstone, hebgen, et al. All within 1 1/2 hrs

ABOUT * TIME! It's good on the other side. Make sure you complete your HR 218 certification before you split.

Good for you!

Welcome to Kansas....and you're just a hop, skip and a jump from both the Ennis and Jackson Hole regions.

Regards,

Good idea so you're covered in all 50 states!

Idaho, by law, is a legal concealed carry state in case you weren't aware of it.

I went to college about an hour south of Ammon in Pocatello. It's a little bit colder during the winter on that side of the state, but still a great place to plant your retirement roots.


Tight lines,

Jeff

But if you retire your pores how will your skin breathe? I think that is how the girl got killed in Goldfinger - totally covered in gold. :lol: Enjoy the retirement tour!
