Day Brown You sound like you live inside an L. Neil Smith novel. It is so darned ..... American! Life would be less complicated (and probably...
GeekBoy Agreed, but there are areas, like my neck of Arkansas Ozark woods where it is easier to adapt to.
The rich are building starter castles and McMansions all over. Jobs in construction, farmscaping, hobby livestock, and satellite dishes are in demand. They are bringing in lots more money than the old line cattle and timber businesses ever did.

And when they find it, they shoot the pickup, with the understanding the next time we wont wait for it to be parked. Thieves tend to move to urban areas where anonymity is easier to come by.
Thus. I've never had a lock on my door, and the keys are always in the ignition. Nobody steals my truck, cause everyone knows who owns it.
