live about 50 miles south of Canadian border in central North Dakota. Have a confirmed Coronavirus case in our county of 6000 people. About 60 miles west are 3 confirmed and 120 miles south are 15 confirmed cases. 

My daughter went to Fergus Falls MN 2 weeks ago must of passed between you and IKS

We are 7 miles to a village of 300 but 40 miles to a city of 1 million, my house is kind of remote but my job is in 4 hospitals and 1 food facility, my wife works in another so everyone needing help is headed our way, we have 420 beds between the 2 of us.

FA666 you should be good with your plan

Not remote enough. Used to be rural. Still is but getting more gentrified by the year. As a friend whose gotten ate up by Nashville twice says,"There's no place left to hide".

The king of obsolete is out there.  Lynn lake I believe.  I don’t know that many can get further out than that.

I'm kind of, but not exactly in between you guys. 12 miles from a town of maybe 500? Neighbours are pretty sparse. Most days the school bus is the only traffic on the main road half a mile from my yard And as of today the schools are closed down so no more bus. . I've just gone a week without seeing another human but that is normal for me in winter. And not a problem. Totally dark and quiet outside here at night. Might hear a coyote howl or an owl hoot sometimes.

Easter island right? Are the statues parked all over the island? What are the facilities like? Always had an interest in that piece of history.

In Canada these homes were sold by the Eatons Catalogue company. My grandfather had this one built about 1920. The Eaton Court. Eatons sold a lot of homes, barns, etc.

Ahhhhh I see the resemblance, cool,thanks.

In MaryHill Wa there is a exact replica some wealthy diff kat built...it on Columbia river east of Portland a hour plus 

 

Not remote.  7m from town of 15000?.  50 to Downtown Vancouver WA.  2m south of border...little more to Abbotsford Airport..town of 100k on wrong side.  80k town is 20 miles S and has all youd ever need and alot you dont.  When exchange was .65c we always treated Canada like "town".  Have accounts at several ag biz there.

100. On dot to down town SeaHelltel....not worth going anymore...really icky and stinky...they give homeless addicts drugs and etc so pop of them went from 2000 to 20000 in few years.  Real sad to see on several levels.  806man (or 1468man now? ?) is 50m S.  In the garden of eden of America.

Wasn't it something what you could buy through a catalogue, all you hear is people expounding about amazon on a screen, I bought my first motorcycle through Sears (honda) you could buy allstate motorcycles which I think were puchs (sp) there also, pretty much anything you wanted was there, then you could use the old one in the bathroom as toilet paper (sorry, I had to throw that in) guns, ammo, fish gear, boats et al, not a bad system, worked for years, I loved the house story though, bought it and shipped right to you.

I can't begin to count the hours I spent looking at rifles and motor bikes in the Sears and Eaton's catalogues .

What is intriguing now is how these companies were killed at their own game .Obviously people don't need to walk into a store and see the merchandise .

Remember jc Higgins, cooey sports and firearms, Remington chainsaw, you could order everything and it was shipped to the brick and mortar, craftsman tools with their lifetime guarantee, I believe Lowe’s took over the craftsman  brand which meant they honored the lifetime warranty, but now they are gone. 

The Honda story was I was 16 just out of school and working at a steel mill 10 miles or so from home, so you guys remember none of this helicopter parenting back in the early 60s, baby gotta go to work, baby ride his bicycle to work, after a while this gets old so I says boy a sickle sure would be nice, now I’m thinking trump or beezer, 500 cc and maybe raise a little ****, 16 remember, gonna live forever, well the old man had something else in mind, didn’t say squat until this one Saturday, August 22nd 1964, he says be home after 3 we got some stuff coming and mom and I have to go out, ( reason the date always stuck was it was the same day the Beatles came to town)  so 4 or so sears truck pulls up and the guys bring out this brand new Honda 50 cub, well, you could have knocked me over, a Harley wouldn’t have made me feel better, bike and a hat and the old man had a plate and insurance in the house which when he phoned and asked how everything was he told me where, didn’t see me til midnight, went by the stadium to hear the yayaya from the Beatles outside the stadium, funny what you remember when you start reminiscing.

Easter Island  AKA  Isla de Pascua. 

The  Rapa nui people celebrate their heritage with festivals for the entire month of February. My birthday is in February so I went for the month . 

One is a bareback horse race , another is the bird man event, there is live music, downhill  banana log slides , and Tortola raft races  just to mention a few with different events each day. 

About 7000 people inhabit the island but I have also been told only about 4000 full time residents. The majority of the Moai are in the Rano Raraku quarry . From memory about 397. The remaining Moai are scattered around the island, some in groups and some alone. There is an interesting group at the Anakena beach in a very beautiful setting . 

As  for the facilities. They are sparse and very hard to get. I stayed in a spare room of someone’s house , rented a four wheeler with a luggage rack for my SCUBA gear , went diving , hiking and explored the cave systems above and below water . You need to book at least a year ahead of time. Flights are few and only arrive on certain days from either Ecuador, Fiji, or Chile. I chose Santiago Chile and spent some time there coming and going. It is one of the most interesting places you will ever see. From the States it takes two days to get there no matter where you fly from. F79858A9-F37B-4241-812E-87146B43F5F2.thumb.jpeg.0202fe937b013f756c89e5c26e8f5426.jpeg

Wow very cool, I read where some or maybe all of the heads have bodies, I’ve seen where excavations going down 10 or more feet, but it’s always been the heads that have amazed me.
