We spent a few days in Duncan with my brides brother.  Sassafras mountain, Pearsons Falls and several others.

 

It reminds me of the America of my youth: legal firecrackers, low taxes, firearm friendly, houses on acreage and just plain pretty to look at.

 

I also saw the Californication going on with tasteless cracker box houses with zero lot lines and postage stamp lots, and severe traffic congestion.  It seems any time a big employer moves into an area, Californication is right behind.  I was truly impressed with all that I saw.

Yeah!  Same crap happening all around Middle Tennessee! Cracker box houses and apartment buildings going up in every available space!

 

The idiot that bought the four apartment “quad” around the corner from where I live tried to buy the back half of my property so he could put up some of those dog houses here.  He bought my next door neighbor’s place and subdivided the property, but there’s not enough space to meet codes and I won’t sell him mine! He’s been by here a dozen times, begging me to sell him all or part of my place.  The last time, I told him what it would take to get the place and he left without saying another word.  He looked like he’d eaten something nasty!!

They are busy building 190 houses in the pasture next to our neighborhood.  I sure do miss the cows.  Certain times of the day, I can't even get out of our neighborhood due to the traffic.  I'm afraid Metro Atlanta has finally found us.

It's got to.

 

It's already 6 lanes dang near to Lagrange going down I-85 to the south.

 

Used to be, ATL traffic started about Union City.  Now the crazy starts just south of Hogansville.

I85 South into Duncan was 31 miles of crawling hands-and-knees traffic jam.  This is well known by locals who advised us to head north no later than 5am.  We left at 0430 with smooth sailing.  Charlotte was a nightmare for southbound traffic when we passed through.

 

it’s a shame the local govt refuses to require minimum one acre lots to avoid this overbuilding.  But they are just as greedy as CA when it comes to this.  Such a beautiful area.  For now.

Yep, 4 houses instead of one=more money!
