It is really sad. Closest beeks are several miles away. Just to give you an idea, last year I was called to remove bees from an army training ranch 82 miles away. They told me that I was the only one they found.
I'm thinking it is time for you to have a boy and teach him the ways of the beekeeping ninja life, for when you are down, or to old to be climbing through attics capturing rogue hives. Everyone knows that is what kids are really for, to do all the gopher work, while we save for them going to school or until they've earned the right to have a beer with us.
