I like to open Google Maps and find places in our country where I have no concept of what life there is like. Here's one,

Guymon, Oklahoma


I was born in Sacramento, CA, then moved to Rhode Island at age 10, and went to college in Boston, MA. I vacationed once to Austin, TX, which was pretty cool. Being in Rhode Island, I'm a 3 hour drive to NYC, or 30 minute drive to Boston. And Philly and DC by train are only a few hours top. I've always wondered what it would be like to like to not not live in a geographical hub location, because most of my American experience has been shaped by living close to a major metropolitan city.

Please tell me about your weird geographically isolated town you live in (Or just Guymon), and why it's good, bad, and what your life is like (?) , as I'd find that fascinating to read about.

And they won't be replaced by any younger heirs. The town will completely dry up in a decade and what will remain is a series of isolated bunker/compounds where angry Nazi guys drive big trucks in the dust, mad at their dicks

There is no reason for the interior of North America to be inhabited. It is completely devoid of any essential resources left to exploit. Hell, a huge chunk of it is just a flat empty plain that drives people insane like Stephen King's The Jaunt.

When you graduate basic training they ask if you want them to let your local paper know so they can run a little blurb in the paper :3:

Toilet Rascal

I live in a small Florida town outside of Tampa. It was one of those places that seemed to be perpetually stuck in 1992 until it was forcefully ripped into modern times a few years ago when millennials like me moved there because the city was too expensive. Now all the older locals do is complain about all the “change” and “city kids” and “different demographics” moving in. You bet they were super pissed at all the chain restaurants opening and a new fancy Publix. Suspiciously silent when the Chick-Fil-A opened though.

Today it’s at a weird transition point where you can see both upper middle class yuppie families shopping next to a toothless tweaker mumbling to themselves in the frozen food aisle.

I lived in Guymon when I was five. Even then I could tell that there were zero redeeming factors about this place.
