So you were in the heart of Redmond, eh? How old were you when your family moved to Idaho, and what part of Idaho was it? My dad's brother was a LEO, and his last department was the Idaho State Police...he was in Benewah County, and they lived in Plummer, Saint Maries, and off the highway in between those towns.

Yes, I was 10 years old when we moved to Idaho (36 now). I didn't realize how close I was to a lot of stuff when I lived in Redmond until I got older and google maps etc came around. I remember getting a birds eye view for the first time and it was pretty cool. All of the cities there were really packed together and I never really knew when I was leaving one and entering another. We lived in Redmond, but I went to school in Kirkland (the origin of the Costco brand for those who like useless trivia).

We moved just outside of Twin Falls back then and I'm pretty much in the same area now. Your uncle lived waaaaay north of where I am. Last time I was ever that far up was when I visited my grandparents as a teenager when they lived in the Clarkston/Lewiston area. Maybe someday when I get this Bronco confidently solid I'll take it on trips up north. I'd like to see Coeur d'alene, etc.

what constitutes a small town? Population? lack of a stop light? the number of bars in town? The amount of BS gossip?

Our little town is about 1000 people. Doesn't have a stop light within 30ish miles in any direction from the center of town. We do sport 4 bars (and 7 churches). And if gossip was an Olympic event, this town would win Gold every time.
We have a Chevy dealership, and a JD dealer...a grocery store and a DG. THREE hotels? yeah...not like there is much to do aside from watching grass grow or snow pile up. True Value has been a staple here since the invention of the nail, and we have a Bible College and a K-12 School. Brand new water tower just went in last fall along with a new swimming pool. 2 gas stations that count as a restaurant since they have a seating area for the pizza places inside. A drive in mom and pop place and a semi formal sit down restaurant complete the eating establishments. Depending on the owners mood?...we have a bowling alley....sometimes.
Have lived in larger cities (130K+), and in much smaller villages (about 400) too...but this is a good size. Not so large to annoy me and not so small to make me crazy....crazier? I have a farm and on that farm there are some Broncos...E I E I Oh...nevermind.

no small town for me, I am a big city guy, 1650 people, but i lived 4 miles from that sprawling metropolis ;-)

Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?

In the south... you have to have more single wide trailers (mobile homes)... than actual houses to be considered a small town. Once the number of houses surpasses the number of trailers (mobile homes) you are in the city.


Just in case you guys from up North don't know what I'm referring to. Uncut grass and window AC unit optional

Ok, lets get something striate poor and white are not the required when referring to "Trash", just look at Congress. There is more trash in Washington DC than most of the poorest neighborhoods in America.


But with that in mind check this out. Only in a small town.

1500 people on the Mississippi in communist Illinois. 110 graduates in my class from 5 communities. 40 percent of the males became suddenly ill for week when deer season opened. Oh, and rusty Chevrolet pick ups out numbered Pontiacs.

Evidently I didn't do something right with my Tuesday post. I meant to include the pics from @Blue1551 .

My hometown is in Southern Illinois. I got out of that communist country when I could! Now reside in Western Ky...full disclosure. Although we still have a farm over there.
It hasn't changed much overall. One gas station out by the interstate, DG, hardware store, grocery, and a bank. Oh, recently a mom and pop restaurant. No traffic lights...have to go bout 10 miles for that.

Common sense will NOT be tolerated!

My kind of crazy is contagious!

First of all... it's "Let's get something straight."
Secondly... as someone who's long been considered and fully embraced the "Poor White Trash" label, I totally resent the comparison to the sh!t-stains in our nations capitol.

Ok that was quite insulting to the traditional white trash. You have my apologies.

My Uncle Marsh now lives in Hayden (insert white supremacist d!¢khead joke here), but he and my late Aunt Vicky had a condo just north of downtown CdA, right off US95. And, when his and Dad's grandparents lived in the same area as Twin Falls (Buhl, actually), they had a turn-of-the-century farm that they ended up losing around 1915 or 1916, because the president of the local bank in Buhl cleaned out the safe of all cash and headed to South America.

Maybe he was trying to run from this lady that was in the area at the time, one of America's first female serial killers.

I grew up in a small town in the 90s, rural, agricultural area In PA, where everybody knew everybody. it was great place to be a kid. of course that was until the 2000s housing boom when our township became like the most developed place in the state, so i moved to another rural area but of course i don't have the same community here. my graduating class had 15 kids.
