    Where do you live , large city , smaller city , town , in the country ,on a farm


    I live on 73 acres out in the country . It was a farm at one time but no one had lived on this
    property for about 75 years before I bought it . There is an old house site on the property but
    the old house is long gone . There was barns & other outbuildings here at one time also but they
    are all gone too . I had to start from scratch so to speak . Most of the property is in timber now .
    There are a couple of small towns about 15 minutes drive away . One east & one west . It is
    about a 40 minute drive to the nearest town of any size . Also one east & one west . They like to
    call theirselves cities but they are not really that big .

    15 miles from Dallas.

    Hillbilly I actually like WV. Been white water rafting on the New, Cheat and Gauley rivers many times. Visited some people in Davis which was a very small one time coal town. Did quite a bit of roaming around WV.

    Re: Where do you live , large city , smaller city , town , in the country ,on a farm

    I live in a small city of 25,000. I love this size of city because I can drive anywhere in 10 minutes or less. Takes me 7 minutes to get to work from home. Dodge City has a great history as well going back to 1871. We have 7 schools and 10 parks all with tot lots. Our city park dates back to 1883.

    Five miles west of town, a 7 minute drive, are the locations of 2 old forts. Fort Mann(1845-1848) and Fort Atkinson(1850-1854). Both have nothing left but open field. 5 miles to the east are Fort Dodge(1864-1887) and Coronado Cross, the place thought to be where Coronado came looking for Quivera(seven cities of gold). Spanish armor was found near Fort Dodge back in the 60's.

    The greatest thing of all is there are no metal detecting laws. Yet!
    The real treasure is in the hunt....

    This is a city that until recently had zoning only for one or two story buildings. Now there almost no more land and we have started building skyward. About 250k people.

    I live in a small town in Texas, just moved here from a farm and fish pond in Alabama. I never moved my furniture, so when I want to I can go back for a visit the place is waiting. It is 15 miles from a small town and mountains are all around. It has two houses and my Grandson and his wife are holding down the fort. Gnewt

    I can relate! I don't live in the middle of Nowhere~ But you can see it from my back door! I drive an hour and 15 minutes one way to work everyday. But it's worth it when I come home, light a fire in the fireplace, fix myself a drink, and stare out at the mountains. Or better yet, look up at the sky and actually see stars! I've lived in bug cities before- Atlanta, FortWorth, and NYC. Like Dorothy said- There's no place like home. Or like my dad used to say- You can take the girl out of the country, but...... .
    I'm on 10 acres with a pond to fish in and plenty of deer and bobcats roaming around.

    Re: Where do you live , large city , smaller city , town , in the country ,on a farm

    I live on 20 acres and currently have 15 chickens and two turkeys in the barnyard (down to our winter carrying flock - no electricity in the barn). My commute to work is 19 miles and includes three stop lights. (I work in a village of 5,400 folks +/-)

    Far enough out that the mailman turns around on the road out front as the other end comes out in nowhere, too.

    But three interstates meet not to far away so I can get somewhere if the need arises.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Small town of about 4500 people. Easy walking distances to all needed stores. In addition, its also easy walking distances to all the excellent metal detecting sites a person could want. The only hard part is deciding which one to hunt on any given day.

    I'm in pretty much as back woods as you can get in MA. Orignally I'm from Southeast TN; now that was back woods.

    I didn't know that there were any "diggers" that even remotely look like digger_girl, wow.
    I like this hobby more and more each passing day.
