Most of the time it’s quiet at night, and the neighbors are nice. Where I’m at it is a little bit of a drive to stores and whatnot but not too bad.

Since I live in the middle of nowhere, there really isn't a true sense of community except at the local church. My neighbors are friendly, but there are only four houses on my street. People who move to Robinson Forest (where my street is) are generally looking to get away from city life and/or are looking for a large yard for their pets/kids. People usually stay long term. The shortest stay I've ever seen was only two years.

"Community events" depend on who you know. Although I've never attended, our neighbor down the road holds "Dirt Drags" and Snowmobile races annually.

Our neighbors are pretty pet-friendly. There's an old dog that wanders up and down the road, freely. Some of our neighbors have horses, some have barn cats, while others have chickens. Almost everyone has at least one dog.
In the winter, the roads are extremely icy and they don't get plowed often. If there's a blizzard or storm, people can go without power for up to a week and a half. In the spring, the snow and ice melt, making the dirt roads a muddy, sloppy mess and the river usually overflows. Every four years or so, people have flooded basements due to the river rising. In the summer, the weather is amazing. All the trees make raking leaves a nightmare in the fall. If a tree falls down, people usually race to be the first one there so they can have the wood. Wardrobes must include a heavy winter coat, snow pants, warm gloves, and waterproof boots. Winter is not a joke here. Last winter we had four feet of snow.
