#1 I'm 29 years old and I've never heard a gunshot in real life. I'm very proud of it. I'm not american, obviously.

Kay,I was raised in the middle of nowhere. So deep in the woods that to this day they still don't have cable.
I think what the post is referring to about gun shots is most likely someone shooting at wild animals encroaching on theirs or their territory. Too close to the house or chicken kind of thing.

I grew up in Pine Log Georgia in the 60s. And I miss it because now I live in the suburbs of Atlanta.

Mira,

No, just stupid and clueless. Whoever wrote that has never been off the the busline.

Rural folk are nothing like that.

RE: the mention of coyotes howling in various pics....

Yeah, but I'll tell ya, nothing, and I mean NOTHING, sends a chill up your spine like the sound of a pack of timber wolves howling. All around you. Within yards. On a pitch black night. Alone. On a path.

OK, finding yourself between a mama bear and her cubs when one of the cubs starts crying is an interesting experience too.

BTW, I'm from northern Minnesota. Estimated wolf population in the lower 48 states is around 6,000. 2,700 of the 6,000 live here.

I don't walk in the woods alone at night; there's always 3 of us. I and my good buddies Smith & Wesson.

"I moved from a busy suburb to a country house for a few years because my parents dream was to live quietly for the rest of their lives. We all ended up moving away after a few years back to a suburban neighborhood because they figured out it wasn’t for them. There are a few things to get use to:

it is extremely quiet, almost no noise unless coyotes are nearby then all you hear is howling all night at random times during the year

mowing the lawn takes all day

there’s no one to talk to, unless you bike several miles away to hang out with another kid, and you may not like them but tolerate them because you have nothing else to do.

snow turns into huge drifts, and the forts you can make are amazing

people in small towns have nothing better to do than to gossip and talk trash, so when you are new they all judge you for the first year then decide if they’re going to treat you like [email protected]#t.

ignorant white kids saying really dumb things about minorities, which is information they got from their parents. They got really upset when I told them they were wrong and told them stories about friends I use to have before moving. They get really offended and hurt when someone uses facts and experience while having a discussion, especially when you disprove something they say.

There’s a bunch of cool stuff about living in the middle of nowhere, but the worst part of it is the people who live there."
