Well you have to drive at least half an hour to get to any major grocery store. There are two small ones 10 minutes away in opposite directions. The only mode of transportation is walking, driving one's car, motorcycle, etc. (everybody pretty much has one because their is no other way to get around). There are no highly congested areas this is the country. The only time traffic gets back up is when you get stuck behind an amish buggy where its not possible to pass. There is plenty of parking.

It's a small town their aren't a lot of job opportunities especially for people with college degrees. There are jobs with people for college degrees, but the pay they get barely justifies going to college. Most of the jobs are trade school type of working such as welding, sandblasting, electric, plumbing, etc.
For anyone that loves the outdoors and a simple life this place is great. Unfortunately their aren't my job prospects. I love my privacy and hiking so it's great for me. Unfortunately because of the job opportunity situation, I will be leaving soon.
