RE: ROAD TRIP!!!
I prefer the Ithaca pump for northern journeys, as there are more opportunities for close in work. Texas requires a little more range. If you ever do the make trip, never take a handgun, as the authorities in NY and Mass wile rmeind you of their mandatory sentencing fetishes.
Years ago I took a cruise from Bar Harbor, Maine to Nova Scotia, in late-Sept early Oct, during the migration season of the great humpback whales. We ran into to a school of a hundred of them in mid ocean, one of the most spectacular sights I have ever seen in my life. They stopped the boat, and they would come towering up and look us in the eye. If you get a chance, it is a once-in-a-life time experience and a great way to do Nova Scotia.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
