    My neighbor brags about one they have a yearly family reunion at every Christmas.

    He is very picky so I will ask him which one it is and get the information to you.

    Sorry....wasn't raggin' on your daughter and hope it didn't come off that way. I wouldn't be that disrespectful. I was just playing the gay dude ranch angle in attempt at humor.

    Good luck in the search.
