Rural, Suburban or Urban

Well, we've done jobs, ages and some other stuff, so this might be interesting as well.

Me, urban, although I grew up somewhere between the woods and a small town.

Urban out the front, Hundreds of acres of wild boar, croc, kangaroo, snake infested rural out the back. I guess that's why they call it the outback.

The only thing I haven't seen down the back is a Bunyip. But at night when it's all quiet.. if you listen very carefully... you can almost hear their stomach rumbling as they search out their next human prey.

Started out "Inner City". Spent most of 22yr RAF career living mostly 'back of nowhere' in England and Scotland.

Now live on fringes of "old suburbia" - look out into woods, can be on the C & O canal park trail in under 5mins by bike, shops in ditto by car. DC Beltway is 3 miles away, but the posty drives past our house more than most of the neighbours.

Oh yes - I have a parking lot across the street for parkflying most summer nights. Added perks - a wannabe flying site 11 miles from my house, and 5 mins from my office, with a real good AMA club site 25 miles away from home

Don't ever wanna move, unless I can buy a sod farm

Interesting, so far, that Urban/Suburban scores are double the rural, despite the fact that the latter present much more opportunity for flying.

I realise that many more people live in or near towns and cities, but considering the vast ratio of rural to suburban flying sites, I wonder if this means that aeromodelling indicates a yearning to be more bucolic, and to break away from the restraints imposed by city living.
