One2note: Could you handle the fast pace of city life, or are you a country person, who takes things in their stride?


I have lived in both rural and city life..but I prefer the quiet country life.
Just go to town when I need to shop as the variety is there..wine
Country life is much more peaceful and not a rat race!..and ya dont need to worry about noisy neighbors!
It is a transition, one I have made many times..but was worth it to see both sides in order to make a decision.

Good Luck with yourscomfort wave

One2note: Likewise, but which one would you choose, assuming money wasn't an issue?


A nice house in some peaceful and quiet area where I could stay whenever I want. And when I want something different - travel to more noisy places and less noisy places all over the world, depending on the mood. That would be perfect. smile

I grew up in a small dairy farm town 75 miles north of NYC. It also was a whistle stop for the train to Grand Central Station which took 2 trains and a little over 2 hours to get to on the Harlem Line because it goes through the Harlem Valley. The train station was just a 5 to 10 minute walk from my Parents house and you can see the train platform and trestle over the river from the back yard. I prefer the country to the city.

I did live a few blocks away from the Colorado State Capitol for a few months. Worst place I ever lived. I later lived in the suburbs of east Denver and Aurora and that was nicer. Would take a few buses to Boulder and hike the Mountain Parks and bike the flat prairie areas. The Denver Metro area has over 300 miles of bike trails.

Where I live now the window over my desk overlooks a wooded area that buffers a tiny airport but it is only a 30 minute walk to the Super Wal-Mart. My neighborhood gets raccoons and Florida black bears in the garbage cans at night. I have a gopher tortoise hole in my front yard and they are a protected species. I also get sand hill cranes walking around in my yard.

Sorry , but I'm not really an expert when it comes to deserts.

I handled the fast pace of city life for many years.

Suppose now living up country it is not so manic.


But do miss the options.
