    Seems like there was 6 wrecks a day in the evening over there, my drive to work during the holidays was taking me 45 minutes to go from just south of the mall to the oil center.

    Meh...don't let it get to you. That's only in the big cities (which is pretty much the case anywhere). That's why I live out in the woods and only have to put up with that crap when I need to go into the city for something.

    I'm torn between my desire to live in the sticks, and not wanting a long commute.

    *Also have to stratigically place myself for best resources and defense in the event of a zombie infestation.. :whistling:

    It hurts my ego to admit:whistling:, but I'll probably need some local coaching to get my herping skills up to speed in the south.


    I'm not used to being able to find the stuff that can kill ya.


    Can not wait.

    The sticks are better in the long run, especially if you like to do what you want in your home or your yard. If you don't mind living the apartment life, Lafayette has some awesome places decked out with all kinds of amenities...but you'll pay for it. And yeah...when the zombies come, I have 2 different places in the state...both in the woods. :thumbsup:


    The 3 most venomous are the Coral, Canebrake, and Cottonmouth. The rest like the Copperheads aren't really life-threatening but will probably mess your day up.

    The real fun is the gators and the alligator snappers.

    Remember this pic I put up a while back in another thread? :cool:

    I knew that wouldn't slip past unnoticed:rofl:


    Tantrix,

    I do remember that photo! Always had a soft spot for the snappers, but never coughed up the coin( plus space for keeping) to own an alligator[snapper].


    I'm used to the apartment life, thinkin that might be the best to find housing near employment, then I start buying shipping containers and a plot in the woods for the manhouse. I've got too many tools, guns, and gear to spend much more time in living in apartments!

    Please. Stop. :rofl:








    More food pics please! I had lunch once in this little town south of Lafayette. It was a cafeteria style place and had the best gumbo I've ever tasted. Hope I can find it if I'm ever down there again.

    Down here, if you look carefully you can find those little buddies fresh out of the nest about the size of a silver dollar. Years ago, I grew one from a hatchling all the way to about 4" before releasing him into the wild. I had him in a 75gal tank.

    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.

    Oh, no doubt...Jerry made that song what it is...but you gotta give Les credit, he did an awesome cover. I don't think anyone else could have pulled it off that well.

    don't get me wrong, i've loved reed since i was a kid and saw him and "fred" in smokey and the bandit, but i'll be damned if claypool didn't just take that song from him and own it like reed was his *****.
