    Hey guys/girls.

    I was forwarded this link from a friend. It is a video someone made of my hometown (how I dearly miss it...). It shows a perspective that someone from Toronto has who recently moved there.

    So where are you from? Any short vids?



    Cheers

    Andrew

    No pics or vids?

    I spent 15 years in my "hometown" and have been gone for 10. Lots of my buddies don't understand why I don't want to move back right now: I would never leave again. I love Victorian architecture, the greenery of the town (lots of mature oak/elm trees) and the river downtown in the middle of the city.

    Where I currently live there are 3 stop lights. If it takes 3 sets of lights to get a green, you get frustrated :D

    Awesome videos. I love Gumby. And that resevoir seems amazingly nice. Nice camera quality too to make the nice video.

    The world is a nice place....

    First they show forty steps where we used to skinny dip. You had to be sure and jump out past the rocks

    The world is a small place and has such beautiful places. I just hope I live long enough to see a couple of them...

    Hometown is general Detroit area and surrounds.
    I try very hard to not go there unless I absolutely have to.
    I very much like where I am now though.
    What are stoplights?
    Oh, yeah, I remember now.
