5. Hudson, NY, My hometown ....

 

We used to shoot woodchucks after school when I was a kid there. I used to take my .22 rifle to school with me on the schoolbus and keep it (and ammo) in my locker all day. Nobody cared.

Lance Wheeler (in the article byline) was my across the street neighbor when we were in grade school.
