The perks about living out in the country is that no one is around so people aren't going to go out of their way to do any petty crimes around here. There are a few instances every couple years of breaking and entering in the area but it's solved very quickly.

I honestly love living out here. It's quiet and peaceful with no one around to bother you. The only problem is that it's a good 15 minute drive to get anywhere such as the grocery store.
