Wuntu - thanks for the offer, but while I am still quite far from the people I would like to visit, I am closer to all 3 than you are.
Mark - I watched a program on T.V. the other day about repo-men, and i think that is my calling. Maybe I could start a business "Ryan's reptile reposession ranch".
Sirestap - scales zoo is open to the public, in winter it is by appointment only.
