Living In The Country

When I was 14 my family and I lived near a small town in Oklahoma. We actually lived in a state park because my dad was the maintenance manager and was on call 24/7. We were really out in the middle of no where. It was GREAT for star gazing. I used to go out and sit on the car and count meteors. You could see so many because it was dark. I don't miss living in Oklahoma, though!!
