You're Not the Boss of Me
I'd like to kick around quality of life, lifestyle, cycling stuff with you. PM me.
I lived in Carthage, Missouri, a while back, close to Arkansas. Great area if you like fishing, boating, and now country music (at Branson). Rolling hills and lots of trees. Fairly low cost of living compared to many areas of the country. Plenty of ******** in pickups and motorhomes, as you might guess -- not exactly an ideal area for cycling.jtolleson said:
My lifestyle includes weekly shopping for my Indian groceries at Patel Bros. on Devon. I don't know how I could maintain that in Fayetville.Scotty2Hotty said:If you make $100k and own your own home in Evanston, you'd only need to make $55k to maintain your lifestyle in Fayetteville.
You'd also have to give up the 10lb Dengeos burgers...Alex-in-Evanston said:My lifestyle includes weekly shopping for my Indian groceries at Patel Bros. on Devon. I don't know how I could maintain that in Fayetville.
If it weren't for the little things, being a hick would be awesome.

Generally college towns are good places. Lots of education, and services for those with education. Madison is often ranked as one of the best places to live in the nation, and one of the best places to retire, believe it or not. There are exceptions and wide variations of course. Iowa City is great (U of Iowa), Ames blows (Iowa State).jtolleson said:I'm really sick of the city, but I've always figured that professionally and socially it would not be in the cards for me to be in a smaller community.
Be sure and go canoeing on the Buffalo River. My uncle was a park ranger there. Great, beautiful place. Just watch out for the copperheads!jtolleson said:Great leads, everyone.
My folks moved to Fay-ville in 1998, and I've been very impressed when visiting. It seems pretty, progressive, and most importantly, SMALLER than Denver. I'm really sick of the city, but I've always figured that professionally and socially it would not be in the cards for me to be in a smaller community.
Now I'm stewing. Scotty2Hotty, that's a cool site! Shows about a 25% lower cost of living in Fay-ville over Denver.
Biking stuff is kinda cool too. But as Doug noted, the roads are not the most biking friendly.
We did the tour of War Eagle Cavern around Thanksgiving. It was interesting getting a cave tour from a guide who believes that the Earth is only about 10,000 years old (as old as creation). Most things he showed in the cave that likley took 100,000 years to get that way were explained with alternative explanations or simply pointed out as formations without trying to explain how they got that way.Sintesi said:That's right! Poisonous snakes and Ivory Billed wood peckers. That's pretty special right there. Oh yeah caves. If you like caves Arkansas is the state for you.
