I was just wondering what you and the people you hang out with are like. Usually, similar people stay associated, but not always as in my case. The "citizens" of "Allantown": Myself- Allan. 21 yr. old half Swedish, half Philippino. Born in Spokane, spends time "camping" and hanging out with friends near the small town of Ione on the family property where dad was born. Habits: Addicted to buying, building and keeping 4x4's. Nathan- 21 yr old friend, met in High School. Owns yellow Suburban with a curse, and a yellow '77 Corvette. Just got married to his wife Nayely who is from Mexico. Nothing he has runs without having weird problems. Greg- 44 yr. old friend, met 2 years ago when he called on my parts ad for a steering box. Broke up with his girlfriend and moved on to my place last year until he got his own mobile home in Ione. Recovering alcoholic who just got his license back a year ago. In the last year: His 23' Camp trailer he was living in burned down, his front car seat caught on fire, and he rolled another guy's Ford truck while borrowing it... yet he is still alive. Joey- 18 year old friend, met in 1995 when he lived in the neighborhood in Spokane. Used to look up to me, now I have to look up at him (he grew taller). Joined the Army and ships off in September. Nic- 17 year old friend, Joeys best friend, and my neighbor across the street. His family moved across the street in 1995... the "typical" family... or so I thought. Rob and Kathy- late 30's, mid 40's friends, have two kids, Nick and Shawna. Robs Hobbies include guns and hunting... all enjoy camping and outdoor activities. They usually ride with me everytime I go to Ione since they don't have a decent car. "The Mexicans"- distantly related family who live in Moses Lake... usually come up camping once a year. Always bring lots of food... and beer. "Preacher Dave"- early-mid 50's with 4 sons, owns a blue '77 Suburban that he mud races, and is a pastor on Sundays for local area nursing homes. Nick and Lacey- friends about 20 yrs old, married with a 1 yr. old. Don't keep the same truck or 4x4 for longer than a few months. Older Dave- Late 50's, always running up a credit card debt, always gets vehicles that have problems and spends too much money on them. Big Rob- 22 yr. old friend, known since grade school. No drivers license. Used to hate everything that moved, but can tolerate certain people. Tiny- about 60 years old, big story teller. BS's alot. Has an artificial leg. Jamey- 22 year old friend since kindergarten. He joined the Army and is stationed in Hawaii. He gets to drive a Hummer. My brother Ron- 59 year old, drinks alot, but a hard worker. Usually very loud... yells alot. Lives next door to the family property. Jeremy- 23 year old friend who lives in Ione, met in '99. Was shot in the head with a shotgun 2 years ago, but amazingly recovered with only some memory loss. I could go on forever... sorry this is so long. I just wanted to give an example of some of the diverse/strange people I know. Believe me, most are weird or have strange/funny quirks in person. And here we are at the annual yearly campout (these show some people listed and alot of others): Album1 Album2 Album3 Album4 Allantown Album Snow Days So, what are the people like that you hang out with?
