Somehow only just now came across this thread.

Anyway, here's where I live (or technically used to live, but only moved about a half hour away and still same general area):

That's the beauty shot of where I live (East Central Illinois -- though not sure what separates East Central from West Central, or North or South Central). Rest of the year its either corn or soy beans. Grew up not too far from Naperville (an earlier post was all about Naperville) in the town of Crystal Lake, which sounds absolutely lovely until 6 year old you is watching your first horror movie, Friday the 13th, and realize its set in . . . Crystal Lake. For further connections I was born in Raleigh, NC but left when I was a few months old.

Here's the view of the new backyard in Mattoon, IL:

Would you mind telling us which town, exactly? It looks beautiful and familiar. Could swear I have seen it before. Not impossible, because I come from northern Germany as well. But not sure. If not, I am really going to visit that nice town!

Hi there,

I am feeling still as a new forumite (though I am reading all these cool infos since a few years). A few days ago I discovered this very nice thread and thought I put some photos into it from my last day trip in the "greater neighborhood". Actually this place is about 100 miles from my home, but I thought you might like it and it still counts as a topic for "Where are you from?"
So I started my small journey in the early morning and strayed through the forest, went up and down the hills, discovered a lonely tower between the old trees, crossed some rivers and entered finally the small town.

Many of the buildings reminded me on so many pieces we all own, especially one which seems to me was the original natural scene for designing the Dreadhollow Forrest Cave entrance ...
For the photos, every building is within a small town in the northern part of Germany, the whole old town is stuffed with those ones. The "wilderness" pics were shot in the nearest surroundings of this town.

Amen. And I've gathered all the data from this file - if anyone wants a list I'll find time to prepare it. Just Forum name and location.

In case you travel.

Brought up in Harlech North Wales, a stones throw from the Castle built in 1289.

Now Live in a village in Cambridgeshire a short walk from here:

Now every time I see it I think 'Buttresses' :)

and a short drive from here:

Ely Cathedral dates its origins back over a thousand years.

so in summary:

Also some important facts that we should all appreciate.

This is Real Beer:

This is real Chocolate:

In a further Summary - stay indoors eat chocolate drink beer and create a better world with Dwarven Forge :)
