Whatever works for you my friend. We want to have as low of a profile as we can and be as self reliant as we can.

right, doesn’t mean you can’t drive your kids to play with others. it’s nice that I don’t need to leave my home to let the kids play with others.

Being on the water by the railroad is the best. White water raft on the new river in West Virginia has tracks on both sides of the river. I was distracted by the CSX coal train while going through rapids.

That doesn’t mean we can’t take the kids to play with other kids

Agreed. I grew up with both options though. Lots of kids in our suburban neighborhood was a great experience (with many happy memories), but also part time in the country with just my siblings. I swam in my neighbor’s pool in the suburbs, and in Lake Michigan & Goshorn Lake (Saugatuck) in the country. I can’t say one experience was better than the other because they both had their positives.

I’d rather swim in a river. Would go out to Island Lake State Rec and swim in the Huron River. But no more because with the advance of civilization on the west side, the river is now a not so pleasant silty swim.

oh, you didn’t stir up anything, AARR did :) i’d rather kayak on a lake than swim in a pool.

Mrs AARR snapped a picture of me swimming next to a manitee and it was the size of a small car.

I love snorkeling in ponds, swamps, etc. There is such a wide variety of animals. I’ve snorkeled around alligators, barracuda, manitees (they’re fricken massive), sharks, etc.

I’d rather swim in a pool than a lake, personally

I didn’t mean to stir up anyhting. I ASSumed younger kids might be involved. Still having the pool out back is probably preferred to going to the association access point on Alles Dr.
