Hey Dragon, why do you say Columbus is in the middle of nowhere. You're close enough to Madtown to spit at it. My office is near the airport, so I'm not all that far from you.

If you saw my place you would notice my closest neighbor is 1/4 mile away with nothing around. Lots of piece and quiet. kinda like the middle of nowhere.

That's like where I grew up outside of Eagle River. Closest neighbor was 1/4 mile away, and they had a 1/4mile stock car track. It's still there, but the old neighbors don't own it any more. Had 100's of acres of county land we were always out roaming through. My parents never knew where we were.
