like i said im Zach, 27 i live in mass, army vet., married, love animals, and the great outdoors. i hope i can bring something to the table without seeming like the gratuitous know it all army guy. but if there are any questions about arctic environment get at me i spent approximately 6 years in Alaska wondering the wilds of the interior as a light infantry soldier. mostly spent time in or around the alaska range. otherwise i don't have too much to bring to the table that you folks don't already know. im here for the outdoor discussion and joking with you guys so don't take anything i say personally or too seriously my personality does not translate well in text. but im glad i found the forum everyone seems to be nice and helpful.
