Too many people, today, are not prepared to take responsiblity for fully supporting themselves, and are totally dependent on the services provided by city governments and commercial businesses.

Sorry, Fidgit. Didn't intend to be offensive to you. In fact, my comment was directed to Sunder; I completely agree with his comments about the advantages of living in small towns. I believe living in smaller communities provides individuals a greater quality of life than living in the suburbs or metropolitan areas. Most of the people in the USA don't have much of a choice, we live in larger communities to provide for ourselves and families. I've often thought that individuals that MUST hide in high density populated areas either have difficulty dealing with others, or perhaps have some habits/life styles that would be intolerable/objectionable in normal communities. In our country's formative years, it seemed that most of the miscreants/hermits lived in desolate areas; it appears that this has changed 180 degrees. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

Sweet so we are all just wheelers and over all people that tinker with things. Right on man see you on the trails might be new ones for me. And I do understand what you are saying NOW. Anytime you need a hand wrenching you have mine if I can help in anyway.

On the other hand, every night (when it's clear) I can see the Milky Way. I have 20 acres I can ride my dirt bikes on. I can park my jeep out-front on blocks as long as I want. I can test flex/jump my jeep on my own property. I can build and fire potato guns..... ETC. I just feel the freedoms living on the outskirts of a small city easily fill up the boredom gaps...


Sounds very nice Sunder! Kinda like here. Except here the acreage behind the house is owned by the state. I like that I can leave the house and vehicles unlocked and not have to worry about it.

Fred, that first sentence makes me wonder. What (where) is a "normal" community? Hmmmmm....As far as I'm concerned every normal community has its share of miscreants and hermits, as well as people with intolerable/objectionable habits (most of us keep them to ourselves!) and lifestyles. As for the second sentence, it may have seemed that way because only the notoriously miscreant are remembered. Good folks fade into obscurity for the most part. In our country's formative years very few people lived in desolate places, therefore, as today, most of the "miscreants" lived in populated areas. I wouldn't lump the hermits and miscreants together but I suspect these days there are about as many hermits in desolate areas as in densely populated ones. 50/50 I'd guess. In the back time it was easier to up and leave an area with oodles of places to go and recluse one's self. It's hard to be a hermit these days. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

Jeepete, you were kind! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> It is so easy to generalize about stuff, isn't it! Especially, when I am writing late at night, I guess. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cyclops.gif" alt="" />

I suggest that cities/suburbs tend to cause people to be reclusive, and there are more nooks and crannies for loners and mischievous rogues to live in obscurity without the notoriety they might experience living in a small town. It appears that the majority of people living near or on the fringe of wilderness/desolate areas, today, are the wealthy/near-wealthy. It isn't even close to 100%, but it certainly does appear that more and more wealthy people owned the land near the areas I go four wheeling. I suspect that it has to do, at least in a small way, with having the money, and extra time to deal with the distance from work and supportive services. These may be seasonal or secondary homes.
I believe you're right, Jeepete; there may not be a normal community, and that even a normal community has its share of trouble-makers and misfits! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

4xgoose, As a recovering Florida native, born and raised on the same general latitude as Boca Raton but on the west coast, I can tell you the mall cruising down there is great! There's a mall every few blocks. Cruising the beach areas can be fun too, 'specially around spring break time. 35 or 40 years ago there were lots of places to go wheelin off road. Not any more! The only places that haven't been developed are cypress swamps and the everglades. Back in the day everything would be under water all summer long, in the dry season plenty of sugar sand on the way to the mud holes and flat flat flat! South Florida is a great place to retire if you can afford it and don't mind a lot of rude old yankees for neighbors. It's also a great place to be from! It's only redeeming factor is the beaches which, on the west coast anyway, you have a hard time getting near these days. It was nice wheeling the beaches many years ago. I recall the family riding down to the beach in the willys truck to watch the sunset as Dad shoveled shell in the truck to put in the driveway. Those were the days! I may not finish my time in Missisippi but I'll not be going back to Florida, 'specially for Jeep riding. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />
