Our town has at least a couple resident bears (which is news because we’re not at all rural- full on suburbia) but I haven’t seen them yet. The local parents’ FB groups light up every time somebody sees them though.
Greetings brownski. I actually moved from LI to my weekend house/ now permanent house in the Poconos. I see more wildlife here than at the zoo. I live on the edge of the wilds. I also live less than 2 miles from lift service for skiing.
