Went many places on our home made bycycles. I got caught 13 miles from home once. I lost my bike for a month!!! That was painful not having my ride!!
Oh, yeah, we played "army" too, but our dads were in the Army for real, so of course we all had to be on the same side, with imaginary "enemies" (*sigh* just how many "nurses" does an army need, when none of the heroes ever get hurt?!) There was no stigma in choosing to be an indian.
