#1 I'm 29 years old and I've never heard a gunshot in real life. I'm very proud of it. I'm not american, obviously.

Kay,I was raised in the middle of nowhere. So deep in the woods that to this day they still don't have cable.
I think what the post is referring to about gun shots is most likely someone shooting at wild animals encroaching on theirs or their territory. Too close to the house or chicken kind of thing.

I grew up in Pine Log Georgia in the 60s. And I miss it because now I live in the suburbs of Atlanta.

Mira,

No, just stupid and clueless. Whoever wrote that has never been off the the busline.

Rural folk are nothing like that.

RE: the mention of coyotes howling in various pics....

Yeah, but I'll tell ya, nothing, and I mean NOTHING, sends a chill up your spine like the sound of a pack of timber wolves howling. All around you. Within yards. On a pitch black night. Alone. On a path.

OK, finding yourself between a mama bear and her cubs when one of the cubs starts crying is an interesting experience too.

BTW, I'm from northern Minnesota. Estimated wolf population in the lower 48 states is around 6,000. 2,700 of the 6,000 live here.

I don't walk in the woods alone at night; there's always 3 of us. I and my good buddies Smith & Wesson.

"I temporarily moved to a rural village in order to get my foot in the door early by getting the EXACT job I wanted without the necessary 5 year experience. My plan was to get a bit of union time in then leverage that and my bit of experience to get back to the city. I moved 2.5 hours away from the city. It has been 11 years and I love it here.

I don't think urban people can understand how much more simple life is. There is no pressure to keep up on trends or make up, but if it interests you, then do it. It is a small village with not too much around it except the ocean so everything is clustered together. This clustering means 2 minute commutes to work. Empty beaches, no need to jockey for spots on the sand and those beaches are within 10 mins. Oh, you prefer the woods? Then drive 10 mins the other direction. Let me tell you, when you spend 4 mins a day going to and from work, a whole world of hobby time opens up for you and getting 8 hours of sleep is still easy.

Going to the "city" is now an exciting trip. I felt stupid when I realized that but then I realized it makes for cheap thrills to be this easily excited.

Saving money is easy peasy. Nothing to 5 dollar your life away at. At housing prices!! I bought a 3 bedroom, 1 bath (booo), 130 year old home for $100k.

Specific to where I live, I don't know if it is the same elsewhere, but our postal system is fast. I get things delivered here faster than my mom does in the middle of the big city where both our parcels go through. And couriers are hilarious. They will leave you a note letting you know who they left your package with if you aren't home.

Oh and the gossip, better than any soap opera. "
