ya all are too hard on Tallrick. Rednecks are a subculture in our great American melting pot. What's wrong with that.

I like TallRick's posts.
Seriously Tallrick, consider Lake County / Marion around Ocala National.
Closer to the sea, I still have some suggestions.

Yeah really!

I don't personally have a junked car, trailer, redneck, etc, but I am so sick of these McMansions - and HOA????? Don't get me started!!!! Why is it people love to have someone else telling them how to live?!? This is supposed to be the land of the free, and I personally want the freedom to put up a high fence if I don't like what my neighbor's property looks like, and let him have the freedom to have his bike outside (not "allowed" here - unreal). But ohhhh nooo, gotta have YET ANOTHER county ordinance telling us how high the fence can be. Or the grass. Or that we can't have a bicycle outdoors for crying out loud.

Your tax dollars at work!

Here's another kick! I went to the "Team Metro" office to take pics of zoning violations there and found a bunch! Everything from loose light fixtures to a rusted railing to a dangerous concrete fence. While taking pics I leaned against the fence and the top concrete rail fell off!

Double standard huh? Also funny that they fined another shopping center owner for having a sign that doesn't light when their own does not. I am also getting some friends to follow their employees who take county vehicles for personal use, and steal gas from the service center. Rick believeS in fairness for all!

TallRick: Write them up! I love it!

WE have these HOA robots moving up here, now. They whine about EVERYTHING. Trailers next to McMansions! Barns that are old! Wildlife in the woods! Hunters shooting the wildlife!

They are building this massive development on top of a mountain in the middle of Tennessee. The developer is out of Miami. There was a woman that wrote on the forum several months ago complaining about a trailer at the bottom of the mountain. Apparently the trailer had tires on top of the roof and it assaulted her sensibilities. She said she was going to go over there and fix their roof if they didn't do something about it.

Oh, I'd just love to see her knock on that door!

I hope that the locals make a stand and do not let the invaders legislate them out of town. As a native Floridian my belief is that people should be left alone and allowed to live their lives, no matter how it looks. If a Floridiot wants to build a Mc Mansion in Tennessee or North Carolina, so be it. But locals beware, it starts out small and before you know it, you're deling with the likes of Team Metro! Remember the revenooers and if you see a "new urbanist" load your gun and keep it ready. Make sure they don't invade your government either. Once they take over, your lives are ruined.

Look at zip code 32110 on Realtor.com. Check vacant land ony. Most of those properties are in an area called Daytona North or, as we locals call it, Mondex. No restrictions and the land behind you could still be a cabbage field! Come on up! You can help us save Flagler County from the Palm Coastees!

Default Is there any "frontier" left in FL? by Tallrick

I have been looking for the same, as Tallrick.

My problem is that I have been a teacher/ educator all my life and i am not good doing anything with my hands.

If somebody knows of a place that I can leave in peace, lots of nature, that I can buy a chep house ( no more than 100K) and get a job teaching, computers, translating (Spanish), etc, please let me know.
