I will say this. Last spring me and my wife took a day trip to Hardy to look through the shops. I went in the pawn shop right on the main drag. There wasnt crap there that was worth anything. The owner was there and could tell we weren't locals. And it didnt take long for him to tell me how bad us "flat landers" which was his exact term had ruined everything in Hardy. He even blamed us for the skeeters. Said we bring them with us in our cars. Didnt take me long to get ticked off. I told him that the only thing that kept Hardy from drying up was tourist dollars and I would never be back in his crap hole. Ive spent a lot of money over the years in that community and have been in a lot of shops and everyone else has been more than polite and happy to take my flat lander money.
