Pic of where people live.

Always interesting to see what kind of homes people have as well as where they live and pretty much every forum I am a member of does this so here goes. As you can tell it is pretty flat where we live. The pic is from when we still had our Edgewater 298BHE. So lets see where you all live..

BTW thats what 16 1/2 acres looks like on the praries. And our house was built in 1905, it is an Eaton catalog mail order house. All the timber is Cedar.

DW's favourite pastimes, cruising around on her John Deere Compact Utility tractor at +30 mowing, tilling etc and swimming in the 90+ degree water in the pool. My least favourite thing, sitting on the same John Deere tractor at -30 degrees blowing snow for 2 -3 hours.

Great thread!

Moose Jaw is really flat.

Southern Indiana has rolling hills and would be covered in hardwood forests if it wasn't farmed. We live on about 100 acres and farmed it ourselves before leasing the crop ground out.



I don't remember what year this pic was taken but it had to be in the summer during a drought. Some of those brown spots in the pasture and yard are where there are large rocks just under the surface. Others like those in front of the house over the fence are my fingers. You can also see where the pond level has dropped. That white dot to the left of the shed by the pond is my trail horse, Joe.

Apologies for the quality of the pic. It is a pic of a pic!

Courtesy of GoogleEarth...near Little Switzerland, North Carolina. You can see the white roof of my trailer in the very center near the bottom. Everything else is hidden among the trees. Hard to see at this resolution, but the second ridge down from the top of the photo is the Blue Ridge Parkway about 1/2 mile away.

lol its about 2.5 hours. driven to MJ enough times. have lots of family up there. mostly Lowe's.

Also you gotta see the park in person before saying it looks nice :P some places are really beautiful yet the next one has plywood over the windows or 5ft grass.. Atleast the drug dealers are moving away. with that "proceeds of crime" law that got in alot of places got seized and went to good needing families but some are still abandoned because they were "crack shacks"

To the right side of the pic there is the roof to the garage and next to the garage you can see a white roof that kinda blends with the concrete driveway that is the Rockwood and the Suburban in front of it. I added that 65' concrete driveway just for the camper and tow vehicle, the rest of the driveway is black top.

Close, but no cigar. It' Ambassador Village or Willow Park Greens. depends on what name you want to use for it. We looked into woodlawn but they wanted almost a grand a month for a spot. Also they are not a year round campground.

This was taken last spring. Our grass is just now starting to turn green. Some neighbors mowed for the first time this past weekend.
