I love living in the Country! We are about 45 minutes from any major city where we can go for fine dining and mall shopping. We are only 10-25 minutes from two smaller cities for grocery shopping and fast food. Family and friends are close and we have bonfires and fire pit cookouts on a regular basis - something you can't do in the city.

We have had a few break-ins in our area. There has not been any proof or success of capturing the thieves. Police will come when called - even if it's an accidental dialing of 911, however, it may be several hours before they get here. In a true emergency, they are much quicker to respond.
We don't have a lot of local businesses, but they are good. I think the community is growing more local businesses.
