When they got to the tunnel going under 466 they were running side by side drag racing through it. They all pulled into Sunset Point skidding through the wet grass with their big knobby tires. After drinking a few beers they tossed their empties in the bushes and raced over the bridge to City Fire like they owned the town. The reason I think they are from outside of the bubble is because most of them had the 6 inch lift kits and big stereos on their carts and they all were in their mid twenties.
If the Villages don’t get a handle on this now, when they finish that residential section by Trailwinds on 466a this place will be overrun by outsiders and coming from a golf cart community in Georgia that every teenager has a golf cart it will not be pleasant.
BIG STEREOS went out 25 years ago. Are you sure they were from this planet?

So that kind of behavior is not acceptable if you are under 55? These were potential Villages of 2055 doing a life style stay. This is what we can expect in 30 years.

It sounds like you are taking exaggeration to the extreme to try to make a valid point. You write a blown out of proportion letter and then top it off out of the blue with commentary about Georgia??!!

So the detractors of the initial post here don't believe that this happens and will happen more in the future? That's what I get out of the this. The Op gets cut up by the professional bunch on TOTV with sarcasm and a some really clever? remarks. Open your eyes people. If you believe this place is not a "target of opportunity" for the type of behavior described you have your head in the sand. Stand By for Incoming!!

So, how many villagers has jacked up golf carts with big knobby tires and are in there 20’s? I didn’t mention cart going 30 plus cause we have plenty of them ( mostly golfers). Other than calling the sheriff report careless or drunk driving IMO not much can do.

Stuff happens in TV, people here are so worried about their real estate values, they hate any negativity--look out for the pre-teens driving golf carts during the holiday season, oh, it never happens

Merry Christmas from the Admiral & the Captain

And what did the sheriff do/say??

And to Coldnomore, I love to political post.
What theater is at Sunset Point?

I have no problem believing the whole post as being 100% factual and witnessed.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I've just bought a bridge in Brooklyn on eBay and I'm keen to go and inspect my new purchase.
