    If time travel were possible- forward and back- where/when would you go?

    Probably the old West in the 1800s after the Civil War. Where? Probably Deadwood, Tombstone, somewhere like that.

      Either the renaisance in Italy or at least a week in Grinling Gibbon's carving studio.

        D-Day, 1944, Utah Beach...would want to see what my dad experienced trying to get on the beach. My wife and I visited there in 2015 and I stood there trying to imagine what it was like coming off the landing craft...

        Second choice would to be a mountain man during the fur trade in the Rockies...1830-1850...

          Bill, no offense, but to me, that is a moot question. I Look back at my life and it has been an experience, all kinds of emotion connected with it, but I don't figure I have that much more time here so I'm just looking forward to new experiences.

            I would go back to a time when there was no media, to see how people lived without constant noise. I would try to find a place as close to the Shire as possible.

            Edit: I always used to answer that questions with "I wouldn't go back any farther than deodorant..."

              Just to be contrary I'd travel forward a century or two to see the progress of science. Then come back, of course.

                I would like to go back to my home state of Louisiana in the late 1700s, to experience how my ancestors lived in that era...but only in the winter time...no air conditioning then!

                  1970 Festival Express in Canada. Grateful Dead, The Band, Janis Joplin, Burrito Brothers and a dozen or more others rode a train for 2 weeks between Montreal and Calgary, three two day stops. The jams on that train between stops must have been legendary.

                  After that- I could live my life moving back and forth- dinosaurs, bison herds, chat with Edison or the Wright brothers.....

                      Assuming I would still know what I know now, I would like to go about 10 years back and re-do a few things.

                        I'n also in the 100 years in the future group - I've lived during flight advances from prop planes to SST; I've seen men landing on the moon (I was on the recovery ship for Apollo 14); I've seen the beginning and exponential growth of electronic computing, etc. The wonders of 100 years in the future would be amazing!

                          I'd probably just go to next week and see what the winning lottery numbers are going to be!

                            My view of the future is dystopian, so in 200 years or so I would expect to arrive in the midst of a battle between tribes in a polluted and barren landscape with no electrical grid. That knowledge and infrastructure was lost during the third nuclear war and only the very old have a memory of those times. Now the population of the earth is less than a tenth of what it once was, and has migrated to the land masses around the Mediterranean sea, the rest of the world being uninhabitable. There are no nations, just tribes competing for limited resources ruled by warlords. Wood carving is strictly a utilitarian craft.
