Sometimes I miss more urban areas. I miss the better restaurants, food selection in markets, fine cheezes etc.....then it gets smoggy, then there is the traffic and crime and, and, and....and then I get to go home to Buhl, where in spite of the fact people look alarmingly alike,....LOL,
it is quiet, I don't have to lock my doors, most people know you, if you are stopped by the side of the road, someone will stop and ask if you are ok. Trust me, I lived in California most of my life and really have a hard time going back to visit friends.
Buhl, Idaho isn't Shangrilha and the Treasure Valley really isn't all that bad compared to really big cities but I really like the inner comfort I have living in a small town, (4,000) people, where the desert begins 4 miles away and wilderness rules.
Thanks for the welcome.
