greystoneowner, you live a hop skip and a jump over from me.
Oh and all my relatives live over the river in the Boothill of Missouri, and my cousin live just down the road from you in Jackson.
This map thing is cool. :D

I lived in Jackson all my life, till we moved to Milan. I still work in Jackson. We lived in an old district there too, but crime got to be a little too much to deal with. Two cars stolen was two too many.....Anyway not what this thread is about........We used to come to your neck of the woods to play quite often when hubs was in a more active band. This map thing is cool. Learning things already. :lol: Oh yeah you better watch out, we are close enough to take you up on that beer. :D

Come on down.
I'd love to show the old gal off to someone that might appreciate her.
Also, my neighbor brews his own beer and is always happy to share. :wink:

As for Jackson, my Aunt Jean, my cousin Garrett and her mom Vicky Lynn (now deceased) all live right there in town.

You could break it down into maybe time zones, or chunks of states, or regions however you like. It'd give people the opportunity to make more local connections. i know that people usually get hooked up somehow over time. I, for example, was lucky enough to find out about a local Preservation Society from a member (now their president) who is on this forum (Yes, that's you, Iowa4Square). I'd still be in the dark about that was it not for this forum!

Anyway, who's with me on this!?!?!?


Well, sure, but I may as well be in the Siberian Regional Hangout...Forum for One? :wink: Or maybe I could be adopted by another sympathetic region for a while until more southwesterners are recruited....

LMAO

Well, I purposefully didn't zoom all the way in before I plunked down my little guy, so that swimming pool is about 6 blocks away from me, but we have our own little 10' pool in the back. Today I stayed INSIDE though -- why, because we have central air now!!!
