IF you were given an all expense paid trip to the winter Olympics in Russia, would you accept?

I would not.

1. Security looks to be a nightmare.
2. Olympics are no longer fun - too much politics. And on TV too many human interest stories.
3. What! Leave my preps behind? A long way to get home if the shtf.

Its too easy for me - I don't care for winter sports. I watch 2 things - a pro baseball game and a pro football game; and nothing else interests me sports wise.

But I would add that being without your preps is a big nightmarish; did that in Ireland in October and the lack of a firearm bugged me a good deal. I was able
to pack some decent preps but defenses were seriously lacking.

I would not. Winter sports are not my thing either. I used to be a HUGE college football (mainly SEC) fan but have even gotten away from that in the past few years. Plus, like stated before. You would be a long way from home if something were to happen. Not that I would not take any trips due to worrying about SHTF. It would sure be rough to be on another continent if something were to happen though.

Not interested in the Olympics and never have been. And being from SW Florida it is just too damn cold in Russia.

i wouldn't go if it was on the other end of town, and i had tickets sitting on my kitchen table.

i really do like the winter olympics, the sports involved, i love to watch it on tv.

If the money availed me I would likely take a northern passage cruise with a stop in St. Petersberg - I understand their archecture is amazing and yes I'd like to see that.

I don't really care about the Olympics but I would really like to see Russia.

Meangreen, you know you'd get the special tour if you went...I hear Lefornvo is very nice this time of year!

Besides, they've got the biatholon, which is pretty good shooting sports!

And if the SHTF, I'm not crazy about vodka and I'd be in the land of the Kalashikov! Preppers paradise...spring would only be months away!

But think about the global warming, they say they're having to make snow to be able to put them on...might be nice and toasty...specially if the N. Koreans are involved.

Being from Canada I would be obligated to go. The chance to watch Olympic hockey would be too great. The terrorists can eat sh*t!
I hear you. littleblackdevil. Hope y'all are enjoying the Thrashers...er...your Jets, after we couldn't support them in Atlanta. Hockey is one helluva great sport.

How far are you to Lake of The Woods? I was fortunate enough to fish Lake of The Woods out of Sioux Narrows Ontario three years in a row (all in late summer) and what a great fishing lake. I flew Delta/NW into International Falls, MN but looked at flying into Winnipeg. If memory serves it was a nice long ride. Anyway, the best Walleye, Pike and Muskie fishin' this Southern Boy ever experienced...Used leeches as bait which are typically not used in the south. Would love to make it to Lake of the Woods again.

PS-We hit +50 degrees F today in the SE US.

I'm sorry you lost the team. I know how that feels. I have spent a small fortune going to the games and supporting them.

Lake of the woods is a couple hours drive. You're right the fishing is great there but the best is in Northern Manitoba. Untouched lakes and copious fish. Unreal
