I remember when I was young. I used to wake up every morning to the sound of roosters crowing. We just got back from a 6000 mile trip and not once did we hear any roosters. I know you older guys and gals remember that wonderful sound. We stayed at a lot of camp grounds that were out in the rural areas but never heard one rooster.

Come to our house. We have roosters on 2 sides of us. Not real close but we can hear them. Like the old days.

Down at the end of our road, the people have fancy chickens and a rooster. Here him often.

Other direction, the neighbors have show mules and hear them braying. Behind us there are 4 horses.

It is nice to have good neighbors.

I winter in one of the older 50+ retirement areas in Mesa, AZ. Our house is located 2 weeks from a set of Hi-voltage transmission lines.

The area under and adjacent to the lines is a 'nature' zone.

We have coyotes, rabbits, fox, skunk, parrots, quail, and other indigenous critters from time to time. Very neat.

In addition to the critters listed above, we also have squirrels, rabbits, raccoons, 'possums, a pair of peacocks, a wide variety of birds including hawks and the occasional slithery creature.

Y'all are so lucky to live in areas where there is still wild life. We do have squirrels, rabbits, owls, and other wild critters. But no Roosters.
Most of the small farms in our area have been turned into housing developments or shopping malls.

Come to Lancaster, PA and camp here:

Mill Bridge Village Camp Resort

It's surrounded by Amish farms. We heard the roosters every morning... and at various other times too!

Thanks Frank, I have a cousin not too far from Lancaster, so next time I go to visit, I will see if we can get a spot there.

I'm serious. My wife can hear roosters and occasionally hears donkeys. There's a farm behind our FL campground or maybe I make those barnyard sounds in my sleep.

Not going down I77. Driving down from Pittsburgh through Bedford, Winchester then to Fredericksburg on I95. And we won't be in the motorhome. Rented a condo for a week. Coming back to PA for a month, then off to FL in the mh, via the Blue Ridge Parkway/Smokey Mountains, for 6 months. I have to be home to mow the lawn and clean up leaves for most of Oct. Thanks for the offer. I might take you up on that sometime.

-Tom
