Would love to hear from others living in Texas. We are fixing to move on five acres and this will be my first experience with rural living. Would love to hear from others who have gone through this transition.

5 acres? That ain't hardly country, that's just a big yard. How many neighbors houses can you see from your 5 acres? If it's more than 0, you'll be living in the suburbs. But that's nice, a whole lot better than the city where people live wall to wall and then stacked up. In the country you have to drive to your nearest neighbors cause if you walked you'd have to pack a lunch. In the country you don't tell other people how to do something unless you are asked. If you always remember that rule you'll be a lot more accepted by your neighbors.

i love the country also never did like the city. i absolutely love going out on the deck in the early morning to drink my coffee before i go to work and hear the hoot owls with there last hoots to one another for the day. i love waking up to hear my roosters crowing. the evening calls of the whipporwhils and the katydids. AND ALL THOSE GLORIOUS WONDERFUL STARSSSSS

Though I'm not in Texas, I wanted to say Welcome and for me the main adjustment for me was the quiet and the absence of street lights. Now, I would never want to be back in the city. I love going out a night and being able to see the stars and just sitting on my swing and listening to nothing. Everyone should do that once in a while. Good luck on your move.
