Van Reviews

Nothing but drug heads. Absolutely nothing to do and everyone knows your business. If they don’t, they’ll find out somehow. Too small of an area, people are very close minded.

Very close community. People are very caring. Everyone is like family there. Everyone supports the high school and the school there
It is a small town community, where everyone is willing to lend a hand and help when you need it. Its is far from city, but it has all the comforts that you need.
