September 2017 Day 16

Was your hometown a “backward” place or do you feel that it was progressive?

No, it wasn’t backward because of the farming community, all towns in the region are very friendly and helped the farmers progress because that’s where their income came from to keep their business growing, the farming community.

Taranaki progress was good, especially when the Maui gas field was discovered in 1969 also natural gas from the Kapuni gas field, which was discovered in 1959.

Gas and farming made Taranaki very progressive.

  1. I am glad the community was so helpful to the farmers. It is always good to help those that feed us. 🙂

    Are those two the only gas fields on your island? There are many crude oil pumper-jacks in fields around here. Natural gas was found on David’s grandpa’s land not too long before he passed away. It is a big business around here. Texas provides a pretty good percentage of fuel to the US, as I understand it.

    Thanks for joining in the challenge. Have a blessed weekend. 🙂
