Yep yep! I lived in Campbell, CA until I was about 11 then moved to Orangevale. One small town to another.
I grew up in Albany Oregon, fairly small back in the 60s. We moved to Bend Oregon right after I graduated high school, an even smaller town.
I moved out on my own in 1977; a 16' camp trailer on 40 acres of sagebrush I bought in Alfalfa Oregon (about 10 miles from Bend). A generator for power, and I had to haul water in. The closest neighbor was about 5 miles away. I'll always have fond memories of this place; one of the nicest times of my life!
A year or so later, I moved the trailer to a 120 acre farm. I got married in 1979, and we stayed in the trailer for a whole year while I built our house a few miles outside of Bend.
We moved to Sparks in 1990, and built the house I live in now in 1996.
The house I bought in Sparks was a fixer-upper; an older house in a subdivision. Neighbors about 20' away. It didn't take me long to realize that I needed more room! So we bought the 10 acres in Fernley.
