    I would suspect that Volpone lost his shit when it became obvious that his prediction that Seattle's "liberal" approach to certain problems isn't ruining the city.

    But seriously, I've been in that area many times and it does make me why something like that happened when I'm safe at home instead of being there.

    Some people here live in the Seattle area? How lucky. My dream is to move to Astoria, Oregon.

    I was about 10 blocks north of there. Fucked up my bus ride to a networking event but otherwise unaffected.

    Traffic is cleared up now. On my way to meet some... friends at our sex club.

    When an area is growing the two options are "sprawl" and "density". Each has it's plusses and minuses. Being paranoid over one or the other is ridiculous. Florida and Arizona have gone full tilt with the sprawl model. Sprawl guarantees car dependency. Density offers a chance to make the economics of mass transit work. If you want to talk about hellscapes, try driving from North Tampa to South Tampa during rush hour and tell me how much you like it.

    Actually, I prefer to avoid either dreary situation and ideally would live somewhere where my nearest neighbor is a mile or two away.

    That's fair. Hopefully, Idaho will never grow to the point where you can't do that. Unlike a lot of people I think you recognize the conflict between wanting a state to grow and wanting to keep it wild and uncrowded.

    Not Idaho so much (tho I follow a couple on Youtube and Facebook who are building a debt-free timber frame house somewhere in Idaho), but I keep looking at properties in Maine. Ten or so acres, wooded, preferably without a house already on it so I could build to my preferences. Alas, the girlfriend rejects Maine for not having enough services and being too vulnerable to weather events.

    Maine is fabulous and it has such an entirely different feel than the rest of New England. The further north you go the less you feel connected to civilization. I like that. Amazing place.

    When I was in the Air Force I knew a guy who was stationed in Loring AFB in the far north of Maine. He loved the area - moose and whatnot running around all over and great fishing too.

    Hawaii and the far northeast are the only regions of the U.S. I have never been to.
