Ick, that would require me to leave my underground command bunker and venture out into the urban jungle... seriously, around some parts of this area "wearing protection" means a Kevlar vest, a carry-permit and a sidearm.

My Friend, you should live on the Southside. Chicago has always been a rough city, but there are areas that are veritable war zones. When my wife and I first married, we lived in a neighborhood that had additional armed security forces driving around because the CPD couldn't keep up with violent crime. That was almost 20 years ago. There are many places that have gotten worse. Thankfully, it is illegal to carry a handgun in the city limits. :question:

My father is Hungarian (his family fled in 1944 before the Soviet Army arrived), and I wear that heritage proudly. I'm just heartbroken about the political events there in the last few years.

But by birth I am American. Living in Oakland, CA.

I dated a girl a long time ago who's father was from Pontardawe. That was my first experience of Welsh, couldn't understand a word he said, plus he had a stutter and he spoke real low. I can't beleive I even remember the name. I think that is near a big forrest preserve. Is that anywhere near you Rab?

I live in Toowoomba which is 2,1/2 hours from Brisbane, it is located 1.000 feet above sea level. Which means we have colder winters (by Australian standards) but we do not get the humity they do all the way up from the Gold Coast to the Sunshine Coast. Which makes summer pleasent as we allways get a cooling wind.

I live in the highlands of the Hudson River Valley -- about 90 miles north of New York City and 90 miles south of Albany, New York. The Iroquois name for the river translated as "the river that flows both ways" -- as it is a tidal river. Just south of where I live the river reaches its greatest width (3.5 miles) and greatest depth (175 feet). Near where I live the Hudson switches over from salt water to fresh water -- as such the valley is a bona fide fjord:

Love that area. Visited West Point last fall and you can see the strategic implications of that location. Fort Montgomery is also an interesting spot. I just finished reading "Revolution on the Hudson" by George Daugan about the impact of the Hudson and NY in the AWI. My favorite book on the Hudson is Simon "Island at the Center of the World" by Russell Shorto about the Dutch in Manhattan and the Hudson Valley.

It really is a lovely area in which to live. Glad you got to Fort Montgomery -- most folks miss it in their rush to get to West Point. If you come back, another interesting place to visit is the Stony Point battlefield a little further south. This is where General "Mad Anthony" Wayne had his men carry him at the head of the charge with sword raised after falling wounded while storming British positions.
