    Hey Link, I am a NDSU grad. Where in town are you located? Some buddies from school lost their houses near Oxbow, and by the river on the south end. He said his deck and duck boat are immigrating to Canada as we speak.

    18th St S & 29th Ave. we got lucky, snow is melting slowly so it is giving the Red a chance to recede. More snow (10"-14") predicted starting tomorrow. yep, Oxbow got hit bad. I will say the people here are amazing, I have been in disaster situations before and have NEVER seen a community come together like this one has.

    That's good news, except for the snow. My folks are in a low area in Crookston and they said they dodged a bullet last Tuesday. I was in GF in 97 and we lost our house (grabbed the insurance check and headed to TX)

    Your right, finest folks around up there. No bellyaching, just pulling together with a smile on their faces and hoping for the best while preparing for the worst. Folks in New Orleans could have taken a lesson from ya'll.

    Glad to hear your high and dry.

    I appreciate it. I went up over spring break and helped move everything. If nothing else the basement got cleaned out. :) They had to evacuate the house for two days when it got to 26 feet and then the freeze slowed the river flow and its now down to about 18 or 19. You could go order a Big Jim sandwich, and a schooner at Lauerman's to celebrate ya'lls victory over the river, that would put a smile on my face.

    I'm in Sugar Land, just outside of Houston.

    Offer is still open. When we win, the fat lady hasn't sung yet, I just might take up your suggestion. Tell them if they get over to Gander Mountain to stop by the gunsmith shop and say hi!

    If you ever make it to Ruidoso, NM let me know, I've been gone for 4 years but still have friends/family there.

    dadgummit, we were just there when I was home, I fly in and out of Fargo. I will tell dad to do that, he is always looking for a good gunsmith. I will definitely stop in this summer. How are ya'll doing against Scheels? My buddy in Oxbow, his wife is a senior manager at Scheels. She used to run the West Acres store before it closed. I was really suprised to see ya'lls store there since Fargo is a Scheels company town.

    I hunt elk Northwest of Albequrque (spelling?) beautiful country. I want to retire out there.

    If you fish I will have to hook up with you and take you over to my cabin near Perham this summer.

    We are holding our own, we are a small box store and the Scheels is a NICE one. My advantage is they don't have a gunsmith here. Make it to Ruidoso sometime, i used to see 200-300 elk a day there, area 36.

    Look forward to going fishing,
