Glade Park and Pinon Mesa
(or Warning Labels for Rural Life)
Rural living has many pleasures, for those who are suited to it. Though the profiles of Glade Park residents are becoming more diverse, there seems to be a common thread in our make-up. We seem to want more space, to be closer to the basic elements of nature, to be more self-sufficient. These values have been romanticized so much that we are often caught off guard when reality sets in.
Each region has it’s own drawbacks, and local wisdom to cope with them. Some things are just nice to know. Some may save your life. This page is like warning labels on products. Certain things are to be avoided, or least approached with caution. This page will try to cover those things that can get us in trouble. I would also like to have input from you. Go to Contact Us to submit your own contributions.
When you reach the bottom of this page there is a form for you to leave your own story of local wisdom, or possibly the dumbest, and most humorous thing you ever did that others can learn by. Below that, you can read the stories others have left.
