I live in Missoula, Montana, but spend most of the year in major US cities working for clients on long term projects. Lately I've spent a lot of time in Washington D.C., and some in Houston, Texas. Those three experiences are pretty different from each other. I grew up in a town which, unbeknownst to me at the time, had formerly and officially been known as Podunk, Nebraska. Yes, that's true. It's been called Brock for over a hundred years, though.
