As far as the apartment thing, I did it from my teens up until about 21 years old then bought my own place. I haven't rented in over 10 years and couldn't be happier. I can play music as loud as I want (I'm a drummer, so it does get loud out here sometimes) and I can shoot my guns in my own yard...no need to go to a range and pay.

Besides, I'm used to roughing it on my own away from people/neighbors. I grew up in the swamps down here, so outdoors away from civilization is where I'm most comfortable.
You make it sound like the life.

Sweet. I tried to always have a common snapper around, they are great garbage disposals. Anytime I'd have a snake refuse a meal, the turtle took care of leftovers. I also had one from a hatchling size, kept him until he hit around 5".
