    I am quite stupid so bear with me in saying this. Some of it is helped by being rural. I enjoy seeing the pictures of the prairies, oil fields, etc... If you can walk out the back door and do all your basics and transition don't you got a leg up on the other guy? I got 15 acres. I ain't driving nowhere's to do basics. Regardless of how far you get with it, it sees like the nature of the beast to me. Maybe it doesn't look like a myth if you got different scenery. Maybe you ask yourself why not instead? It doesn't matter either way. It was something I typed.

    I spoke with Mark Smith about this but he reminded me that Bob Kennon trained NFC AFC Shadow of Otter Creek with no professional help all while working a full time job and making due with grounds that he could find in South Louisiana. Bob won the 1978 National Open with that dog. Bob did later get dogs professionally trained however Shadow was not one of them nor had Bob had any professional training.

    Yes, you got to enjoy it and the time with the dog(s). It is what sets us apart. It is the journey not the destination.

    Believe in yourself, believe in your dog.
