Aug. 11, 2007 at 3:31 PM I live in what is called "No Man's Land" it is in the Oklahoma Panhandle. We are the biggest town in the county having about 15,000 people, and that is just the ones that are We are surrounded by pig farms, corn and wheat fields. The only time there is excitement is during Pioneer weekends then our population almost triples. We have one high school, one jurnior high, one middle school 5 elementary schools, and one pre-K school. We have two bars, several places to eat out and finally a Super Walmart. But if we want to go shopping we have to go to Amarillo, Texas which is about 2 hours away or Oklahoma City which is about 4 hours away. But we do have the small town feel and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Currently we are in the boonies...  I live in what is called a township... meaning it is far enough away from a town, but not close enough to be considered part of the town.  The township has nothing, no gas station, no general store...  nothing, not even a zip code.  My address says I live in Zimmerman, but when someone asks where I live, they say I am in Livonia township...  We are about 15 minutes from the closest city big enough to find stores to find what ever you want...  Walmart, Target, etc., restaurants, specialty shops, etc.  We are about 45 minutes from the next major city (Minneapolis).  If you want a real job, you drive to the twincities.

If we ever get our house sold, we are moving to something similar, but the house is in a community unlike where we are now, we have a huge yard that is like a park, we have huge oak trees, wooded areas with just paths, a clearing with a bonfire pit, horseshoe pits, and still more space that just isn't used.

Aug. 11, 2007 at 4:46 PM I have the city life, south of Boston. I would not want to be in the boonies, but a tad quieter area. The roads are busy & driving into Boston really stinks!

Aug. 12, 2007 at 7:17 AM I live in a small town too, sounds a lot like yours. We have one traffic light, 2 cops (there are times when there's isn't even one on duty, in which case you have to call the state police if you really need a cop) We have one grocery store several bars, a post office, and a dollar store that everyone refers to as the "Albion Mall" Albion is the name of my town. When I first moved here from a bigger city 19 years ago I didn't know if I would like it because it was so far away from everything. Well now I wonder how I ever lived where I did before. Small town life is my kinda living
