I've been a country girl all my 52years and I am still learnin so much. my new daughter-in-law was quite amazed that I cook our meals on the top of our tempwood woodstove (our only source of heat).
there is so much to offer living in woods...the peacefulness of the pines makes one feel there are no problems in this world.

We have 7 acres up on a mountain. The terrain around here makes it possible to be isolated but still be with 5 or 10 minutes of anything you need down in the valley. My wife and I were raised where it was a 1 hour round trip to get anything. This is just as isolated, but not quite as quiet. We can hear cars, trains, boats, etc. down in the valley. We don't do any gardening, but have left it all wooded. Convenient, but still isolated. I love it!

I'm a transplanted city girl...When I first moved to the woods all that peacefulness scared me!

Wind in the corn (ghosts!)
Rustling Oaks (vampires!)
Crickets (roaches!)

15 years'd need a log chain to drag me outta here!

i was raised in a coal town , full of bars and tough ole coal miners and loggers, it was pretty wild and i saw alot living on main street, i moved to the country 24 years ago , couldn,t sleep for a long time , the quiet was hard to get used too, now i find beauty all around me in Gods creations, you couldn,t pry me out of here for anything now, if i had to go back to town to live i don,t think id last very long.

Originally from Philadelphia...there isn't a machine, or man, big enough to pull me away from my 6 acre farm. hehe
