We have tornado warnings now in my area. An underground house sounds heavenly....
Everyone has such different ideas about where they prefer to live.. "Isolation" is like heaven to me, near the woods, with a stream nearby.
Sounds like your area is convenient.
Even though it is considered a small city, we still have deer in our neighborhood coming to eat my daughter's day lilies. I guess I can handle isolation, buy enough food and supplies for a month-have a bog freezer or build an ice house
Dana Point sounds like a little piece of heaven! Will you go back one day? Of course, being near Chicago would be exciting with all there is to see & do. Thanks, Dashing.
I live about 30 miles of Dana Point, it is just OK, unless you have big money. Then you can stay at one of the several 5 star hotels.
blue.......LMAO! You are out of this world...so I believe every word you've said! Please save some room for me on that planet. Anywhere HAS to be saner than around here!! Sounds like fun. Let's go. Be SAFE my love!!
Blue, you really are funny, but truthful. Just remember they are all supposed to be ascended in 400-500 years. Come back for a visit then.
I can totally relate. When I was a kid I wanted to travel space on the Enterprise - and then I wanted to live on Deep Space Nine. There were plenty of 'Earth Trees' on the holodeck. I didn't even need to visit that planet, LoL! Earth sucks.
You know that by leaving the planet you are effectively taking the stupid with you?
P.S. Earth doesn't suck, I think it's absolutely beautiful.
No, I won't be taking any of your family members with me, so the stupid will stay here but maybe they will have instituted a law against dull points breeding and the intelligence level will rise . . . who knows?
I to would like to live on another planet; Earth is full of brain dead people,
When people love the City....they are very loyal and dedicated to the City!!
T.W. Makes sense to me. There are whole new neighborhoods being constructed everywhere around here in the semi-rural areas (aka our suburbs due to the proximity to the major City) Growing in popularity 4 the reasons U mention! Thanks.
Ruby, A small, friendly & peaceful town. Sounds perfect!
I hear you...UR location sounds perfect 4 U & UR growing family. So good 4 kids to get outside & enjoy the sun & fresh air. They run around & go 2 bed early!! LOL. It's comfy 2 have UR own space.
There's Rural and Rural. In Australia's outback you can be a hundred miles from your nearest neighbor. That's why we have The Royal Flying Doctor Service.
No internet?? Yikes! Sounds like old times. But it might be nice, quiet & peaceful for a while.
Funny how we all have our own preferences that make us comfortable. All this diversity makes the world go round....I guess there's even room for a few lunatics! LOL Thanks Aime.
Well now, I don't have a daughter, but if I did, she would think exactly like you!!
I guess you need to shop more and bigger and stock up.....then it won't matter how far away the stores are. U can shop once a month! :)
Grace..You sound like my sister! You and she would be so happy in NYC! She & I used to marvel at how different we liked to live, having been raised together! I'm a country girl! LOL City life is hoppin.
Yes.....peace & quiet....clean & fresh. Sounds great!
You've had your share of real life experiences Lela....Sounds interesting. No harm in being a little street smart! Good for you.
Brad...Sounds like you might want to give some country living a try! All the hustle bustle makes us tired! Get yourself a horse & a barn....tend to a farm! LOL. You must have had enough of the burbs & the city!!??
As long as you are safe & happy & healthy.....the area is just fine!
Wow Tim.....I can see and feel your storybook environment! I can understand why you find that ideal!.....How wonderful to live like that. Good Luck! I'm a Lottery dreamer too!!
You like pace? I hope you find your special SPACE for PACE!! LOL
Sounds like you 2 may decide to hit the road soon! Good Luck where ever you go!
You are young enough to give different areas a try before you choose to make it your permanent home! Go for it!
Yes! I liked the picture too. Looks like peace & comfort, fresh air & lots of nature!!
6 alpacas? How very interesting! I think I could love living like that!
You got that right! A cabin by a lake....PERFECT!
Relaxed and friendly are the best kind of neighbors!
You have lived in so many different areas! That gives you an advantage, Tom. Where ever you are settled now, I wish you health, peace & happiness.
You can't help but be happy and comfortable in the rural areas!
I stayed with my sister & family in Tennessee for a month on 2 occasions and I agree with you on it's overwhelming beauty!..

Sounds wonderful. And, of course, you could work from home, so this peaceful environment does not have to be frequently left for a noisier, less pleasant environment.
I grew up with that. Not a bad experience. :)
