Some folks wonder what it would be like to live afar from our country. I'm pretty boring. As I travel around the United States on a motorcycle I do wonder what it would be like to live in places such as Brooklyn, and Manhattan. As to a 24-hour town not really. Need to head west maybe 2.5k miles for a real 24 hour experience. I always had to be sure I arrived at the Stage Deli, now defunct, before 2 am I think it was if I wanted to delve into one of their incredible corn beef on rye monster sandwiches. That and a Bud would set you back approximately $25 if memory serves me correctly. Cheap? No way, but heaven in your mouth it was. I wonder how nice it would be to live in Connecticut and Vermont. And, in the area of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Mississippi too. Don't know much about the midwest but Oklahoma, Nebraska and the Dakotas' look interesting in their own right along with Wyoming too.
Texas has a really cool name and I would love to check out New Mexico for awhile along with parts of Arizona such as Tucson, Bullhead City and Page along with a few Indian reservations. Nevada has had my interest for years because it truly has a 24-hour town known as Las Vegas despite the fact I don't gamble. It also has incredible off-road racing. The kind of stuff where you're off into the desert for 40 and 50 mile loops. The ultimate in cool in my book! I love Boulder City and even got married there and gambling is against the law there. Buy the right piece of real estate in Boulder City and you don't need a trailer to ride your dirt bike; you just head out the back yard for what seems like forever. Of course, I don't know what the BLM has to say about that. But my fantasy doesn't care. There's a pizza store on Main Street that sells pizza by the slice. A Jersey boy can't ask for much more. Then you have the town of Nelson, NV, maybe 30 minutes south of Boulder City. Nelson is an old silver mining town basically near the end of a 2-lane dead end road. Get thru Nelson as you head east and you come to a glorious site where the road dead ends and before you lies the Colorado River in its magnificent blue dividing the desert up between Nevada and Arizona. God took His magnificence here and really delivered the goods to us, His children.
I don't think I'd have enough time in my limited remaining life to fully explore Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. California too. The other problem is I'm not the retiring type as I love what I do for work. So all of this shall forever remain a fantasy except when I ride through the Southwest on vacation and savor every moment. Just maybe that's the way it's meant to be in life. And, wonder What would it be like to live "here"? God has so blessed the United States in spades and we truly reap the benefits of being in this wonderful land.
