The politically correct term is "communal DNA", Lee.

No, I'm not a native Minnesotan. Lived here off and on for a long time, but not a native.

Then again, some of my Mescalero Apache forebearers might have crossed some of your ancestors' paths in Arizona......

Phil, your hometown sounds like a great place to grow up. Good memories like those are the best.

Small town America,... To find a place that IS still what it was is rare. The town I live in now hasn't changed THAT much since my friends here were kids. And it's not dilapidated like so many I see as I ride the back roads and once-flourishing two-lane highways from before the interstates bypassed everything. I often consider the old motels and gas stations and general stores, and barns (y'all know from pics I love old barns) that once were bustling with locals trading and visiting with one another. And the tourists, especially when I ride old beach towns in southern Alabama and across northwestern Florida. Highway 11 through Tennessee and West Virginia is much the same. The structures are still there but the life has disappeared from them. I just "imagine" and enjoy my memories of such similar places from my childhood. THAT is one reason "I love to ride!" Thanks Phil, and the others, for the nostalgia trip.

Same situation with me. Unfortunately my old neighborhood turned into a real slum. Wouldn't want to pass through there even during the day,,, sad to say,,,.

Sorry your old home place is getting run down. Thanks for sharing though. You didn't move very far, just up the road a piece. I went by the house I grew up in Detroit a couple years ago. The neighborhood looked pretty good. The house was looking well kept and the trees we planted are a lot bigger.
