    I lived just south of Rocky Mountain House for a decade.  What amazes me
    about these guys is that they could make those delicate observations amidst
    black flies, wasps, mosquitoes, cold weather, dampness, bears, and other
    misery; and lacking hospitals, trucks, electricity, computers, telephones,
    faxes, synthetic clothing, local shopping centers, and etc. (No relation, by
    the way.)
