I grew up in a coal mining/logging family that moved a lot so I lived in a lot of small towns. I have always been amazed at some of the names of the towns we lived in. Some are quite unique. I'll start the list with some of the towns I lived in, you add in the towns you have actually lived in to keep it going.

Remote, OR.
Bridge, OR.
Coquille, Or (pronounced KO keel)
Riddle, Or.

and perterbuilt, I understand about long bus rides. In Remote we got picked up near the beginning of the bus route and it was almost 2 hours long. When the bus dropped us off we were near the end of the route (ran the route backwards)

There used to be a stand-up comedian that worked the Wisconsin area that had a rural theme to his comedy. He told the story that he grew up in a town with a very depressing name. Downsville. His parents then came to him one day to tell him that theywere moving. He was thrilled to be leaving Downsville until they told himwhere they were moving.



















































































Pittsville.











These are both realtowns in central Wisconsin.
