    Granger. Sounds like I'm closer than anyone else so far! :D
    Spent years living in the Coldwater / Sturgis MI area, and worked in Orland for almost 9 years. Would that be anywhere close?

    I live close to Bloomington. Nice college town, but a little too liberal for my tastes (plus you can't smoke in the restaraunts!)

    So, what's going on there? Democrats all over this place? Any problems with gun laws?

    Adam, no, Bloomington is the home of Indiana University. I.U. attracts a certain segment of rich, spoiled children who enjoy thumbing their nose at their parents by not bathing, not shaving (yes, even the females), and blathering on about socialism all the while they cash the checks from mom and dad. We call them Mastercard Marxists, see, e.g. John Mellencamp.

    Bloomington is very beautiful, but a little Bohemian for some.:) I have family there still (on Lake Monroe, we have our family's Christmas celebration there). I went to undergrad there as well.

    Couple of good gun clubs, good fishing, and beautiful hiking and camping. If you win your lottery, I'll give you the nickel tour, we'll go shooting and then some Thai food (some great Thai places down there).:cool:

    Speaking as a recently (2000) graduated master's student from IU (Bloomington): it's a cesspool college town full of liberal pantywaists caring more about the environment and saving the world than just about anything else.

    Of course, the town itself probably wouldn't be that bad if it weren't for the college residents. But then again the college residents outnumber the local yokels by 2 to 1, maybe even more. And the high number of foreign students only enhances the liberal mindset.

    Driving between the months of August through May is sickening.

    Aside from the raving liberalism, the biggest problem is that it's trying to stay small town, but the population is growing, so traffic is getting worse and worse. And don't even get me started on game day traffic! :D

    In summary, the university residents ruin it for the rest of us. Aside from that aspect, it's a beautiful place to live and Monroe Reservoir (worked there one summer) is full of opportunity for fishing and sporting. But I couldn't stand the liberal bent on everything and moved as quickly as I could.

    The rest of southern Indiana is just about perfect though. One day......

    Got my BS and MS from IU. I live in Salem, IN currently and work in Bedford. Loved Bloomington in the summer after most of the students leave for break.

    I understand now. Yes Mastercard Marxists, I understand you very well, I can accept them as long as they will buy in my shop, but hell... they will never become my friends. Strange people, but city itself looks very interesting...my wifes family(from Chicago) told us about this city. We want a city in the middle of the forest, so it's looks perfect. Gun laws are ok , the same with cost of living.

    Adam, everyone has their favorite stories about Bloomington, but when I was there a member of the city council proposed that in order to help the "homeless" (mentally ill who camp outside) the city parks department should plant fruit and nut trees so the homeless could feed themselves in a healthy and environmentally-friendly manner.:rolleyes: Bloomington also had a "sister city" in Nicaragua in solidarity with Daniel Orgeta. :rolleyes:

    Lots of spoiled kids from the suburbs wearing sandals pretending to be angry over "injustice" while they listen to REM in their BMWs.:D Not everyone there is like that (like anywhere else). BTW, lots of beautiful women though---ummm, just happened to notice when I was there recently.:D

    If you like the woods and horses, Bloomington has many horse trails as well. My father who was a bigwig in the Indiana Trail Riders Association mapped many of these.

    If you can find the movie "Breaking Away" you can rent it and view a bit of Bloomington.:) How does one say "stonecutter" in Polish?:D The scene where the hero is racing the semi truck to Indianapolis was filmed in front of my uncle's farm (hills in Morgan Co.).
