Do not live in the boondocks!

I know they are out there preaching to leave the city and moving to
the boondocks, creating ever growing sprawl. Do not! First of all
there's no place to walk, ride a bike or hike. NO HIKING IN THE
BOONDOCKS! Yes, surrounded by the beautiful forest (in summer anyway)
and nothing to do other this. "This" is the Internet, the only contact
with the outside world. NO PEOPLE. Just get in you car and drive. Hey,
NYC is a better jungle than this.

What we need is livable communities, aka "new urbanism." Places where
you can walk and ride a bike.
Prior to there being chickens and eggs
various questions do not have merit.
Without a road, a chicken can't cross one.
- dao ke dao, fei chang dao -
Yes, and dead critters are found on the road around here all the time.
Even deer are found dead so they rely on the Prophet of the Jungle...
That's me. Is there no solution to killing animals just for the
pleasure of driving fast? That's food for thought. But the ducks are
surely happy because they are hand-fed. But the signs that say "Do
not feed the wildlife" are missing. In other words, this is all upside-

This all may sound like trivial conversation, but I want to discourage
anyone from ever trying to live in the boondocks.

plaintive whine]
since everyone else here, rural, urban or in between, seems
to manage regular cycling, I suggest you consult a
professional (bartender, hooker, whatever) who will listen
to your incessant pathetic whining and pretend to care.
Isn't there a minimum age to enter a bar in Florida? Perhaps the simian
is below it.   Probably isn't a minimum age to visit a hooker though,
so that's his best bet to find an audience.   Briefly.

Hey, I'm very afraid of undercover hookers.

But you know what, they should go out as undercover cyclists to catch
all sorts of predators.
