I am lucky enough to have some options and am looking at them. Thanks to everyone who has been helping me plan my spring ski tour.

Yes, when it's only one person, there should be no problems...but
So half of the American citizen are saying. Then they will all move to Canada and replicate the US there...
Anyhow, the above is just for the sake of discussing it, a long time dream is I wish I could move somewhere, anywhere (but with mountains near) really...just to see a bit of the world, so far I have lived only in Italy (a couple of different regions) and France, plus shuttled a lot back and forth from Germany. And where I live (which is where I was born and raised, btw) now hold its own with the other places I've been, life style, working in the "big city" is a bit hectic but it's the price I pay, and that's oner aspect of my life I'm working on to change. Everywhere there are minuses and pluses...
I wish you all the best.
Now, <hiijack thread attepmt follows>
I knew what a NewFoundland ("NeuFundlaender hund" (sp?) or "Cane di Terranova", shortened "NeuFundlaender" or "Terranova") dog is.
Is "newfydog" an accepted shortening of the name, a Canadian nickname for the dog, an American nickname for the dog, or just your personal way to shorten that dog's breed name?
