Well it's been a few years since my last post.....I still check in once in a while and lurk. Anyway today I was thinking about a poster on here from a few years ago that I stopped and met on one of my trips back from Alaska to MN. He was taken to young by cancer, So I went back and read some old posts by Cory, aka Northern Rancher.....I miss our visits. Just wondering if anyone knows how his family is Doing? I still see a few names I recognize, thanks for any info, Shawn Ramsey

I often wonder about his family also. He was always up for the scrap when he was fighting cancer and I do not think you could find anyone prouder of his family.

They are alive and kicking. Ty rides for me at our Meadow Lake place and still rodeos. I don't know the girls much, but Ty can still convince them to catch his horse for him. Meagan has a couple of kids.

Good to hear they are well. RSL , pass on to Ty that his dad's friend who guides in Alaska and ranches in Mn thinks of them often and am only a call away if they need anything. Shawn

That is good too hear RSL, my regards to the family as well.
On a side note, do you happen to know a fella named Nels Hanson from that area? Corey worked for him at one time a long time ago.

I think about Northern Rancher all the time. I never met him but considered him a friend. We talked about getting together the last year he was alive. If I had to do it over again I would have made a point to drive to Canada to meet him. It's weird how you can "meet" somebody online that you connect with. When I was considering the move from winter calving to calving on grass there was a few here that I really appreciated and valued their input. Two fellow Ranchers.net contributors I credit for a lot of advice and support are Northern Rancher and rancherfred. There were others too that I can't remember their handles but I appreciate their input too.

I don't frequent Ranchers that much anymore but I do check in periodically, mainly to look at Soapweeds pictures. I've been on Facebook for a couple months but find myself in arguments with some liberal friends that all that seems to get accomplished is raising my blood pressure. I've determined that Facebook is overrated and a waste of time. Anyway, just thought I would check in and say "Hi" to some old friends.

By the time I got done hiding all of the posts on Facebook from people that were irritating me with their garbage and self-centered posts I am left with about three guys that I went to high school with. It turns people into narcissists, or maybe it just allows self-centered people a bigger stage.

Do you post under the same name on Agtalk?

Yeah, I post under my real name there. I was worried about the rough crowd here when I signed up. When I met my future mother-in-law for the first time for some reason I am still not clear about she was sure that my name was Fred. I have used it over the years to pick on her.
