We live 35 ft from the White River, 11 miles down river from Bull Shoals Dam in northern AR.
We love it. The river never freezes, always 55.

I live about 25 miles from a large man-made lake here in Texas.  It is fed by a river.  The lake furnishes drinking water for much of the Dallas area but is also a well used recreational lake.

I've said in many answers that I'm a proud Appalachian American, and I live on the Cane River in Western North Carolina.  It's a small river, but when I saw the Rio Grande (at several locations), it was sometimes smaller than the Cane.  We watch the river go up and down with the rain and snow, it's muddy in the summer rain, and clear in the dry spells.  It's warm, it had endangered fresh water mussels in it, an I like to collect the empty shells.  This is my husband's childhood home and he hates it, but I appreciate it, just hate that we are so isolated.  You have to dry to another county to buy spirits.  It's backward, but some good folk.  We'll be here a while longer and then we'll be moving on.

Many of us have known each other for years on When it shut down, we migrated here. The great diAskpora happened last year. At the same time, SodaHead closed. Blurtit was very kind to us.

That's great. I've never heard of SodaHead, but I did know I found out about this site from the Experience Project, though.

Experience Project... I haven't heard of it. I'll have to look that up. :)

The Blurtit site is going through some updates and glitch fixes. After the Topics Tab issues get worked out, you'll find more interesting questions. We're in "topic limbo" for the time being.

I love researching the questions posed. It's a bit of a culture shock to go from the non-stop Ask scroll to the smaller and slower Blurtit feed. The trade off is being better able to make connections.

Nice to meet you!
