Congested area gets more interesting as the FAA has never defined it! It’s definition seems to be based on how bad they want to get you.
That's exactly right. A few years ago a guy in Texas got busted for overflying two houses set in a wilderness area with no other structures around. "Congested Area" my ass... If the FAA doesn't like what you are doing for whatever reason, and can't find any true reason to bust you, the congested area is their #2 tactic, right after "careless and reckless" (also undefined).
