I was watching a bit of a show called American Diggers. It's about a group of archeologist types hunting up stuff like civil war relics buried where armies were known to have camped and so forth.
They were hunting in Virginia in a semi rural area and were knocking on doors asking if the homeowners were interested in letting them scout their property in return for a share of any profits. The land would be returned to its original state when they were through. None of the homeowners were what you would call friendly - remember there was a whole crew along for this, not just some guy knocking on the door.
One guy answered the door with a double barreled shotgun - pointing it, another was working professionally on a car with a pistol in a holster on his hip.
This was everyday routine for these people.
What a way to live.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
