I can relate to the siren, theft business, one of the reasons I moved. Shooting near where I lived plus my house was robbed so I decided time to move to a small town. If I hear a siren once a month here or even less often than that, its news! Sirens were a daily thing in NE Illinois, got a little old after awhile.

I love living in a small town, sure I miss some things but I'm going to the Milwaukee Museum this month, which will give me my city fix. I go to Appleton to plays and to Manitowoc for concerts at the Civic Center (and I wasn't scared)!

Very nice photos - you cannot beat the green of the midwest.

Great pictures notmuch69. Too bad you had to head back before the leaves changed color. It's awesome.

Haha. I moved to Fond du Lac area from Texas. Now I live in the Lomira area. I like the big city life WAY more...I mean small towns...lots of relations. But I mean its sometimes nice. I have noticed graduating from Lomira High School that kids that have generations in the small towns are typically the more "popular" kids in the towns. But I mean, if you like being in such a small area...good for you

I can think of no better place to raise your family. Sure there are crazies everywhere, but for the most part the people that I have known in Wisconsin are good people that enjoy helping each other and enjoying the beautiful state of Wisconsin. Good choice!

Actually, Ed Gien was from Plainfield, WI about 97 miles east of Bangor um I'm guessing about a 2 hour trip, his Body snatching was in Plainfield and it was a Plainfirld Police officer That discovered his Mother in Giens House
