I've been there a few times myself, of course my Lab didn't understand that and he was whining and no doubt cussing me in the process.
As far as the "snobs" in any endeavor, it's funny you said that IJ b/c I fished a few times with the Drose family's guides on Santee Cooper's impoundments and I got on the subject of Roland Martin, they grew up with him. They didn't have good things to say, they regarded him as "snobby". How about that??
