    I don't mention this too often online, as many people tend to reach blindly for some sense of personal offence, but yes…. I grew up in a little community called Swastika (Swas-TEE-ka), populated by maybe 1500. There was very little there when I was a kid. I grew up splitting firewood for heat, fetching water from the spring down the road, and emptying the inhouse porta-potty-type-thing every day as there wasn't indoor plumbing until my teens.

    The nearest town, Kirkland Lake, was where we went to school and worked. It was a 10 minute drive, or a 1.5hr walk (which I did almost daily). Even at its peak mining days, it couldn't breach the 10,000 person mark.

    …….and now you know, lol.

    I am so glad I spent my childhood in a small town, hope to go back there someday

    can't figure out the location.... maybe in the Med?

    It's in Rajasthan, India :)

    Also, would you be interested in seeing pics of my abs? Since you obviously don"t do reverse image search😏

    Came from a small city 250K then although I think it's a lot bigger now, moved to a smaller city about half the size and have spent most of my life here.

    My parents bought a little travel trailer back when we were a family of 6 and spent many summers camping/traveling up and down the coast. Beautiful area <3

    I grew up in a town of just over 33k. It sure seemed small at the time, lol.

    The size town I grew up in is two stop signs and a caution light kind of small.

    Medium-sized town (was 30,000 when I was a kid now it’s about 84,000).
    Now I live in a small town adjacent to that town but it’s growing rapidly.
