Different kind of guy. Not much into comfort and grew up in the depression. Comfort to him was breaking a sweat because I think it drove off anxiety that he learned during the depression and through the early years of paying off farm loans "living on nothing" (as my grandmother put it - she wasn't fond of his habits or his hardness).
My dad grew up on nothing, too, but thought my grandfather was crazy. I don't know what happened with all of his stuff, but I wouldn't mind having his steel handled axe.
