Small town life. How petty it can get. In episode 3 we talk about a petty rivalry between two small towns in the southern tier of New York state. We titled this episode with the town names in the order that we did on purpose. You'll have to listen to the episode to find out why. It was sort of a petty punishment for Afton? Just a side note ... when you send your kids to a school, make sure it has a working elevator. One of these schools didn't have one.
It's a beautiful area and is very historic. Joseph Smith of the Mormon religion even tried to scam the citizens of Afton. We touch on this briefly in the episode as well. For all the faults of the residents (including allowing horses to freely attend gatherings) it's a nice place to live and raise a family. Once you learn how to avoid the petty!
