I am originally from West Palm Beach. I am only 23 but I remember when all i had to do was go a couple miles to vist the woods or farmland. Now all that land is Wellington area....

Anyways, I moved to Orlando in 2004 for college. I decided to stay here even though the RAT is close by.

I still visit West Palm Beach all the time because of family though.... it has changed a lot since 2004.

Glad to be out of "Joisey".
Had my first gun an O.P. Colt 38 Special carried in car when home from college.
If caught BIG trouble, still big trouble for carrying in car or on your person in that commie state.
Been here since 1962. Graduated U of Miami stayed in Miama till '91, then came to W. Palm to get away from the oppressive traffic.
It has followed me up here. Traffic sucks here.
