It seems nothing is quite what we remember it as. Since retirement I have taken to going to places I had previously visited. Charleston has grow immensely, and the traffic is way too much for me. Seems all the places I used to hunt are now houses. Went to the Farm I spent every Summer working on. It is the only one that is still a farm, and not developed. That is because the deed has a forever clause in it limiting buildings and development. That was from Federal money to protect the land around the Reservoir called Blue Marsh. The other farms under the same program, no longer farm, they are owned by individuals and maintained as homes, not working farms. When I travel North, I see wind turbines in what was wilderness. I see roads that access them. Even the Moose River Wilderness is under pressure to provide handicapped access. The area around it is heavily developed as recreation property. I guess it is true, you can never go home again. 
Walt,
Had I done everything right throughout my life, the World wouldn't have noticed.

The US population has doubled in the 60 years since you and I were young lads. The greater Charleston area has grown at 3 times the national rate.
Maybe federally mandated spay & neuter pogrom?
