I've been to Fargo, actually. Being that I'm used to the PacNW, I was amazed by the fact that you can see your dog run away for 3 days in Fargo. (For the uninitiated, that's because it's really flat.) ;)Anyway, your hobbies sound excellent! Do you use a drop spindle? I saw one of those for the first time the other week. They're brilliant!
