Where I live
Some folks were asking what all is around my mountain area, so I figured I'd do a little illustrated guide!

My city let me show you it.

Yes I am very scared of mountain lions cuz here they attack people more than they're looking majestic.

I like mountain lions, theyre pretty, but I'm fucking /scared/ of them. I bring a hammer outside everytime I take the dog out just in case. My friends have been stalked by them, there was even one in my friends backyard hanging out and it ate some of his livestock. Up where I am there were some golfers harassed by one just the other day, and the locals are always talking about not leaving your cats or dogs out in the yard just in case.

Bears don't bother me because if you're going to get attacked by a bear you know it well in advance. Its not like bears stalk you or anything really. We only have black bears here and they're rather small ones at that and theyre mostly foragers as a species. If I see a black bear, then I'll be worried. But mountain lions man..you won't even see it until you're pounced.

I'm more scared of the neo-Nazis than the mountain lions.

If you're white they don't bother you unless you look like you're nervous or something. Actually I'm kinda more afraid of them than the Mexican gangsters at times because you'll be talking with someone you'll think is kinda cool then all of a sudden the "LOL HATE" bomb drops and you have to back out of the conversation casually.

Your map is fantastic.
I like the ghetto bumpin' car.

This made my night better. :P

(took me forever to find the "leave a comment" button...)

Please explain the "don't wear anything colorful".

Californian gangs are notorious for shooting people who are wearing the colors of their rival gang. (i.e. wearing red in Crip territory)

This is awesome and I want to do one too.

My dad's friend has an old house up at Lake Arrowhead - and in one of the rooms, theres a bunch of writing on the walls - in old dayglo paints - somebody said that it was done by my dad and the same friend when they were on acid in the 70s (my dad denies it, though)

And this reminds me of it. They called it "San Blabardo"... they drew the jail - and some random pirate ships. Very amusing =)

San Bernardino is weird. I've always loved it up in the mountains, particularly by Lake Arrowhead - but down in the desert around it, its a really unpleasant place.

ROFL XD Wow thats hilarious

Yeah I really hate going down the mountain without a friend. The town immediately at the base of the mountain is...really bad. :( Its so weird though, it seems the ne'er do wells don't bother making the mountain trek XD Good for me I guess.

Oh! That map is so lovely, artistical, and cute!!

Aww. I love mountain lions! But I could understand your concerns for them if they are so likely to attack people. (Awrk! Aggressive, aren't they?)

Items that I love in your map drawing:

1) Hearts floating around the Wal-Mart location.
2) Mexican gangs shooting at each other (I keel u!)
3) Your attempt at correctly spelling "San Bernardino"

*smiles*

I have a friend living in San Bernardino (fareme) who happens to be the sweetest foxy ever! I greatly enjoyed my time in that city (even if it was spent mostly at her apartment :P ).

I love California.

Hehe, totally cool map. It would be fun to do one for my area, but really...what amusing things does Oxnard and the surrounding area have? :P

The "presumably scary" part made me laugh the hardest. XD

Oh my goodness. Cutest thing ever. I giggled.

And yeah, I recall Katze saying "Ooh, they'd love you over THERE." and I'm like "WTF? Why?" he says "Neo-nazis" And I'm totally oblivious and go, finger-to-cheek "buh-buh-why?" HELLO MOHAWK AND SHAVED HEAD.

Riiiiight.

So that made me giggle.
Though I think the classic bullet-with-speed-trail is my favorite part.

Ah! ... this guide will be very useful if someday I'll pass to that zone! ;D XD
I would like to explore that uncharted (scary) place! :P

I promise to visit California (when my wallet will be full enough) XD ... eheheh!
(I didn't expect that explanation for "don't wear anything colorful"! - have you got a suggestion about the clothes that I can wear there? ;) - personally I like colours, and I have a lot of colorful clothes :P, ... anyway I think to have understood the comment of Codyvfrost! XD

actually its not as serious as you might think, i know not living here you'd see that and be like OH MY GOD I GOTTA GET RID OF ALL MY COLORS but really, I don't even go into those areas so its not a problem. Usually if you're white and not obviously mexican they don't bother you. Usually mexican gangs stay with mexicans, blacks with blacks etc.


Thats why skinheads are so scary cuz I'm white too and that gives us some sort of automatic comradery >_>
