Did you grow up in a place like this place used to be, where everybody just
traded the last four digits because there was only one prefix for the whole
We got a second on in the '80s, and that was a big deal. Now I have no idea
how many there are. Four land lines and another four or six or eight for
cell phones, I think. We've split area codes twice in 20 years.
All of which means there are too many cars on the road around here these
days, and not enough cow pastures. Ah, progress.

I grew up in Meade county, South Dakota, in the 1970's. My first two years
of college were at Univ of South Carolina, Columbia, and USC's phone book
(25k students) was thicker than the phone book at home. ;-)
I'm in the Washington DC area because that's where people will pay for the
biometrics knowledge I have. If I hit the lotto I'm moving somewhere where
I can see the stars at night. ;-) I've been in this area .... umm ...
about 14 years and I've only seen the Milky Way clearly once.
Last summer I flew to Dallas Texas and drove to Oklahoma. When I was many
miles from the nearest town I confess I stopped the rental car, got out, and
spent over 1/2 hour just looking at the stars. ;-) I knew them well in my
youth. My brother is a rancher in western SoDak and lives 6 miles from his
nearest neighbor. Light pollution is NOT a problem. ;-)
I returned to the family farm after my father died several years ago
after 30 years...we're in far SW KS. Biggest difference I see is the
amount of light pollution all around the horizon now from all the wanna'
be "rancher/farmer-ettes", irrigation well indicator lights, feed yards,
etc. that weren't there when growing up... :(
