Where You Live

Recommended Posts

Where do you live, give some pictures and baout your town if ya want.

I live in Deadwood, SD. The elevation here is 4,550 feet on average. Although it does rapidly slop upward to a peak of 7,076 feet (terry peak). Deadwood, SD is located in the scenic historic black hills of south dakota. Some of the scenic places here in the Black Hills are Mount Rushmore(45 minutes away), and CrazyHorse sculpture. Deadwood, SD is one of the only whole towns to be named a National Historic Landmark by the Department of the Interior. Deadwood, SD and Lead, SD (where i go to school) are seperated by a gorge/gulch that is 1 mile long. Lead, SD is on average a mile high town. Deadwood, SD population is 1,315. The few reasons Deadwood is a Historic Lanmark is b/c of the gold rush heer in the 1800's and many notorius wild westerners spent there last few days here and are buried here (wild bill hickok, calmatiy jane, a bunch of other poeple uve never heard of). One of the main festivals here is The Sturgis Motorcycle rally although it is located in Sturgis SD (15 mins away) most anyone who comes to strugis comes to Deadwood.

Here are soem pics.

wow charger, i have to say that looks like a very very small town.

Fremonts population is 210,000+ and there are 7 districts, each about twice the size of your town, so basically its too huge to photograph.

i'll get a few pics in tomorrow of my block.

Charger:

First off great idea for a thread. I love it. Looking at those photos makes me all retless. I want to hop into my little Datsun (dare I say Q45) and take a 2 week roadtrip from here all the way out west untill I hit the Pacific Ocean.

BTW:

Who's '69/'70? Blazer? Let's see some more pics. :wub: Looks shiney and clean. :)

Here's a photo of my house about a year ago.

i got the BESTEST IDEA EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

everyone go to http://www.local.google.com/ and look up your town!!

then zoom in to where u can see it nicely, and take a screen shot (its after F12 :AH-HA_wink: )

then go into something, paint or whatever, and click edit paste, and label the cool/important things in your town!!

heres fremont, im very excited to see other peoples towns and places :):)

This is the bridge that took nearly three years to complete and had to be blown up twice because it was sinking. Good site survey, guys.

This is an old shot of downtown. Scientology owns everything between the two up arrows...

^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~^

I exaggerate slightly. Well, at least they're fixing things up alot better than the city commissioners are doing.

Here's yet another crappy condo they plan to ruin our nice public beach with.

I'll be sure to laugh extra hard when hurricane season comes again.

Hey, its the world's crappiest junction of the two most congested roads in the county!

Posted Image

Don't get me wrong, I do love living here, especially compared to the rest of the state - Orlando is too congested, Ft. Myers is too boring, Jacksonville is a big morass of everything, and Miami is like going to a foreign country, but not in that charming or even slightly appealing way.

Zhawk & I live in a very small town in Washington state about 2hrs south of Seattle & about 45mins South east of Olympia ( the capital)

On the best days you can see MT Rainier big & Bold while driving down any of the streets of this small town.

We live about 10 mins from town in the country air & love it out here because no busy body neighbors are telling us we cant "Play" with our cars going down the streets

aww thanks! It's a little *too* cute. Only 700 square feet and most of it is ceiling.

We're gonna upgrade in August.

I have perspective....?
