Steph and I lived in Driggs Idaho for well over a decade. It's centered in Teton Valley, with Victor on one side and Tetonia on the other. The valley runs parallel to the Grand Teton mountain range for 17 miles along Hwy 33. There are about 6500 people living there, and I was the bus driver.

There was not a single fast food joint to be found, and we had to drive 45 miles down to Rexburg to shop at Walmart. The largest city around was Idaho Falls, an hour and a half away.

Now, Walmart is only three miles from my house, along Hwy 43, and we have: Wendy's, Dairy Queen, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Burger King, McDonald's, Hardee's, Long John Silver, Dunkin Donuts, Arby's, Little Caesars, Krystal, KFC, Jack's, Sonic and Zaxby's. In that order.

This strip also has everything else you could want. The only time I really need to go out of town is for my neurologist up in Columbia, or the airport in Nashville. I've met a lot of folks who were born, raised, and lived their entire life here in Lawrenceburg, TN. It is an interesting medium sized town in the deep South, and everyone talks with a twng.

And they really like to eat...
