    I am wondering if everyone here lives in some towns jurisdiction.

    We can't all be pioneers like you, Jon! :laugh:

    I think I might like living out in the middle of nowhere sometimes. Usually when I'm commuting to work... :rant:

    I'm just ribbing you a bit, is all! :p

    I imagine most of us live within some city or incorporated area. I couldn't imagine living outside the infrastructure to which I've grown accustomed. Though I do think it'd be cool to have my own property well-removed from all the madness of suburbia and city stuff. I'd like to find a good balance between solitude and the security of the collective. Maybe someday I will...

    Until discovering the existance for forums. I would say that half of the people I know in about 5 states do not live inisde of any town.

    I know that rural people have to get online once in awhile but I notice they seem to be absent from forums.

    I live in an unincorporated area outside of any city or town. The county is the smallest jurisdiction, not including any districts (e.g., fire protection, park, school, etc.).

    The problem with the countryside is that it's not air-conditioned and doesn't have a roof... ;D

    I live rurally on my small ranch in the middle of nowhere, as I don't like crowds, and I can't imagine not having the freedom I have here.
    I'm just a good'ol country boy and always will be. Big cities freak me out and depress me.

    Besides, way too many leftwingers in the cities for my liking.

    Really though, I have an unspoken agreement with society. Society doesn't bother me, and I don't bother society. :laugh:

    In town (60,000)... but only for the sake of school. As school ends, we hope to move back to a smaller community.

    11 million people qualifies as a rural town ?
    I guess not....

    A proper home should allow you at least 180 degrees of safe firing angle from your home.

    I'm just a smidge outside the city limits after the last annexation, but I don't know as I would call us rural. The city is annexing little thin strips of land reaching towards adjacent cities to prevent those cities from annexing the areas first. Thsi last time they stopped about 200 feet short of the entrance to our little "subdivision". I'm not sure what will happen once it reaches the entrance. Hopefully, they'll just annex 100 feet on either side of the road and leave the rest of us alone. As far as I'm concerned, their "city services" aren't worth the extra taxes.

    Unfortunately, I don't have a 180 degree shooting arc. I could almost get away with it if I aim over the top of my folk's house across the street, it's on the downhill slope towards the lake. But the marina and campgrounds on the other side of the inlet are definitely within range, so that's out. But at least I have several lots, and some other out of state relatives own the adjacent ones, so that I have more yard than I want to mow and I don't have other houses right on top of me. It's somewhat private, but definitely not my idea of rural.

    How do you get mail if you are not part of a town? And what does one's drivers license read?
