so we cant keep any single good point thread going each of you must have a few reasons to still be here.
I love the rolling hills and trees. flat land like Kansas is boring. my favorite place is in the woods. behind my house. just walking alone watching animals and looking at the trees. some how the air feels fresher in the woods. and my mind is more relaxed.
extreme heat and cold bothers me. I tried the south even for short visits 100 degrees is just too much. coll weather with out hurricanes or tornadoes suits me.
I used to say my friends and family were here but many of them have gone to the carolinas. now I have to admit I just feel real comfortable with my home and neighborhood. Hidden water falls, ponds way back in the fields, trout streams, favorite walking trails each of you must have some reason for being here, maybe its the small city culture of downtown. or the arts
just tell us what you like so much that you have not moved away
Chestnut Ridge Park is close to home and returning to nature more and more every day. walking there is my biggest pleasure.
