I am at my s&b (thankfully made it home just in time), in a small city. The daily sounds here remind me a lot of snow. The muffling, and the fact that nobody is driving.


3/4 timing in a DIY van conversion. Backroads, mountains, boondocking, sometimes big cities for a change of pace.

Sitter around a campfire on a dark night with only the glow of the flames for light, listening to the sound of some creature scrambling around you in the rocks, we figured it was feral hogs, very eerie.

The reporter said that several people had told him that they are hearing the sounds of birds' wings for the first time in their lives.
A couple of months ago my neighbor was commenting on how he could now hear the birds chirping again. Of course for him, it was because he'd just gotten hearing aids for the first time! [emoticon]

I live in rural south central Wisconsin. My city friend was sitting in the back yard with me one time and he was kind of freaked out at the number of coyotes, owls, and other assorted critters we could hear. When the wolf that hangs around in the nature area north of us started howling, he wanted to go inside. I talked him into staying outside and it was one of the most memorable nights of his life.
Later that night, he saw the northern lights for the first time. I felt blessed to have share the time with him.
