A diverse group of people who love the outdoors! There are a couple of hangers in the group, but I think there may be more converts to come
The reason I am thinking of spring is because I, too, have a job that requires advance notice (I am a nurse and my schedule requests for December are going in next week).
Also, the spring is the time of year between ski season and LaCrosse. We are avid skiers and our teens' LAX teams consume our time from April to June. The summer is hot and muggy.
