Technically, it's a creek. :D Anyways, all of this has inspired me to take some additional pics of good ol' historic Brooville. Don't know when I will, but want to get so close ups of some things as well as some things that aren't shown. Also... sometime later this year... probably a few weeks from now, I want to take some pics of the fall's beauty. :P

Looks like a decent place to live, Vipes. I'll send some more pictures for you to post as soon as I get a new helicopter blade. Durn thing's like a weed whacker, I keep hittin' stuff, and the blade gets smaller and smaller. I barely got off the ground the other day.

Damn... that's alot of info. :D Sounds about right, too. One thing I noticed about the pics is that there were taken recently... like roughly a month ago. This is evidenced by a building that burnt down roughly a month ago as it isn't in the pics. Also, it is wierd looking at these pics. Everything looks so similar yet so different. That and I can tell you what every single thing is... Anyways, when will Brookville see its first tourist from C&G? :P

You gonna raise a family there and retire? If not, where do you plan on moving? I notice the college age population is by far the smallest...surely, that's for a reason.

Um... Don't really know. I guess I'll live where ever my intended career takes me. Which is Automotive Design. There are no good colleges for that in PA... So, mostly like the Academy of Art college in San Fran. Or a different, better one. It all depends on if I get any Scholarships or grants or such. Loans too... as I really can't afford to go to even the crappiest of colleges. After college it depends on which, if any, Manufacturer I get a job with. So... I just really don't know.

I like it here in Brookville, though.

Art Center here in SoCal (Pasadena, to be exact) is where some of the best and most brilliant come out of.....it's brutal to get in to, but that's just about any college of anything, and you have two years to prep for that anyway....then after that, most of the designers are somewhere out here these days.

You can always go back to BV (wich is also what your initials stand for, I notice), but I think we all need to see the "other side" once in our lives....rich need to see the poor and vice versa, folks from big cities should take in small towns, etc.

Are you more of a Philly team person, Pittsburgh, or do you like out of state sports more?

I agree, get out and see the world, or at least a different perspective on life. That's the main reason I love Los Angeles so much, it is the anti-Indianapolis in so many good ways, and only a few bad.

Or... I could stay in Brookville and just travel alot. :D Although... I kind of already do that.

I'm not into sports that much, but I am a Pittsburgh supporter. Edited by blackviper8891

Traveling isn't the same. You really have to live somewhere else in order to realize the different perspectives out there. Change is good, even if you find out you cling to what you started with. Life is a garden, enjoy it!

Hey BV, how far are you from Williamsport? I'm up here for college at the Pennsylvania College of Technology......... Williamsport is a total opposite of where I live back home in Sinking Spring........ if anything, this place makes me appreciate where I live because here it's boring and dead.

Yep, my sister goes to Art Center, but for graphic design instead. She came back from Denmark recently after setting up the INDEX summit thing in Copenhagen. Being a private school, it isn't cheap... tuition is $36K/year, not including living expenses or supplies.

Oh... about 80 miles or so, I think. West, that is. It's in the center of Jefferson county. 20 miles north of Punxsutawny, 20 miles west of DuBois, and 20 miles east of Clarion. It's off exit 78 of I-80. Also, for life insurance purposes, all of you guys aren't serial killers, right? :lol: :D

It's seems like a nice little town. . . I stoped in for some gas on my way to New York. One question, what's the main source of income? I can't imagine there be much work out there.

Um... Factories for the most part. More than a few people in my family work at them and there are quite a few of them. Otherwise, it's a mix of several different things. Farming, lumber, teaching, small businesses, oil/gas companies, etc. Oh... for all the bigger it is, we have quite a few lawyers and business people here.
