Hi, my name is Linde. I'm retired after 35 years with the phone company in Portland, Or. Sold the house, everything in it and sailed away on my boyfriend's (manfriend?) 40' sailboat to Mexico for 7 winters. We'd leave the boat down there and hop on my RV during the summer and land cruise the states. Great way to retire. Then my sis in Georgia was killed in an automobile accident a year and a half ago and it's bye-bye gypsy life and hello Atlanta to take care of my folks. We'll be here as long as my folks are. Then it's bye-bye Georgia!! Back to Oregon! I started with a Little Chief smoker years ago and had a ball with it! Lots of salmon, some trout, jerky and duck. Now in Georgia, got a bit braver and bought a Masterbuilt Digital Electric Smoker. It's a hoot! Brining some salmon as I type!
