    : Interesting questions....possibly, but not likely.

    : Designated shp's like Columbia, CA. have barricades to shut out vehicle traffic, but probably have restrictions on "new residents". You have to consider where you'd live, and work.

    : Some places like Austin, & Eureka, NV. have been restored to their 1870's heyday, with people in period dress, but they both lie on busy US 50. Again, where would you live and work? If you're wealthy, I guess you could buy an historical shop residence, or hotel, but you'd still have the traffic on hwy 50, or some other hwy.

    : Menonites, and Quakers in the Pennsylvania Dutch counties back east follow the old ways, down to the horse and buggy. But unless you're a Menonite or Quaker, you may have to convert to their religion to become part of their community. Or perhaps you could marry into it! In order to find the place you're asking about, I'm afraid you'll have to use the time-warp-continuum machine. It used to be in Ogden, UT., but I think they moved it to Roswell, NM.!!

    : No offense taken, but if I'm reading the question right, he wants to move into a town that is already up and running, with no traces of the 20th century. The mining camp you suggested is completely deserted is it not? I live in the armpit of the San Joaquin Valley... Bakersfield, and used to play in a band in the 70's so you were close...never was much of a salesman though, and paint houses now as owner/operator.

    : You are right about the general lack of a sense of humor. Do you know that there are some posters here that don't care for my sense of humor at all. The name I use should be enough of a clue. I mean, like it's not "good bob", "nice bob", "pleasant bob" or "happy bob". So I told them if they don't like my posts, don't read 'em. But perhaps people don't get your jokes because they missed seeing the punch line. I know I did. And pray tell how one of your better ones nearly landed you in the graybar hotel. Slander?

    I have recently started receiving Widow's benefits, and I resigned from a college job. I want to get away from the rate race and live back in the 1800's: As a child, I grew up without modern things. We did not have indoor plumbing until I was ten years old.

    I want to get back to a more simple way of life. Can anyone tell me of such a place where I can move?

    Thank you kindly!
