Neighbors got to love them,
I grow up in the city close enough so you knew what next door had for dinner, best thing I ever did was move, only half hour from city but a different world. When "townies" ask where I live in town and I tell them, even they say "you live in the boonies" no neighbors except pine and oak trees and junk everywhere. I blame it on my mother being from the hills of WV.
P.S. My kids hate it (sticks living), but I always tell them some day you will understand.
I'm right there with you on that. I live 43 miles from work. But my commute is only 45 minutes because it's all highway except 1 mile..
People I work with comment often on how far I drive and that they can not imagine that long drive everyday.
But the truth is many of them have a 30+ minute drive through the city.
I'll take the boonies over sirens all night every night anytime!!
I have one neighbor close, and we get along very well. Since he parks his snow sleds outside(covered on his trailer) We have no problems at all. He is the Fire Chief in Newton and is from Minnesota and is gone back north every couple weeks.
