My wife and I live in a small town in NE Nevada and we have three acres of land that we live on.
Our town of Ely, NV is 6500 feet above sea level and has a total population of <5000 people. We live about five miles south of town and we have five other families living around us.
I am disabled and must spend many hours at home alone while my wife works as a nurse in town. I do at times get a little stir crazy but all I have to do is look outside and find many things to keep busy.
I love to hunt, shoot weapons, fish, go 4x4ing, cut wood for re-sale (the extra cash does come in handy), and plan our landscaping.
My wife works four 12s on the grave shift so I find myself alone way too much.
Have to love the country because there will always be more things to do here vs living in a bigger city where everything cost money to do.
