Building cloud's thread about Southern Indiana - each place is interesting in it's own way. Considering there are people here from all over the world - why not share some unique aspects of your hometown?
I grew up in a very remote small village on the west coast of Vancouver Island. It was at the end of a long, unpaved logging road, very hard to get to, and had next to nothing there. There was one school, all grades in the same building, and I had 9 people in my class. My Biology teacher was also my Chemistry and PE Teacher, as well as the ambulance driver.
There was a gas station, two restaurants and a corner store. Bread came in on Tuesdays, milk came in on Thursdays, and everything else was bought at the nearest town, a three hour drive away. We ordered clothes from the Sears catalogue (This might sound like I grew up in the distant past, but I'm 33).
We had one live television channel - CBC North. The other "channels" were run by an old drunk guy who ran the "tv station". It was a trailer with a bunch of VCRs and he'd put tapes of shows in. Nothing like a schedule, so you never knew what you were going to get. My mom said when I was small, she'd come home to us kids watching porn, cuz that's what he'd put on
The main threats we grew up with weren't drugs and alcohol - it was bears, wolves and cougars.
Great place to grow up though. We'd just take off every morning and go exploring. We did a lot of camping and boating. I miss the camping and boating, but not the lack of shopping.
