I understand what ya mean. I've lived in the same place ever since I was born
I absolutely love it here, in the small area with mountains. It's not exactly secluded, but not a big area at all and pretty quiet and peaceful. I just love it here so I do prefer it. I say all the time that I could never leave this place. I don't think I'd be happy anywhere else. The people are kind, I guess it's true the whole "Southern hospitality" thing. I get responses from people (several times I've had people here on EF tell me this too) saying that they've visited Georgia or know people here and "the people are so kind!" I never realized that it wasn't like that every where else. Of course there are bad people here too, but in general, most people are very kind here. I like that. I like people, close and friendly people that'll have a 2 hour conversation with you as you're leaving the gas station
Those moments really can be nice.
Now, I totally get the whole needing to have places nearby. Dear heavens, we have nothing but a post office, lots of gas stations, CVS, some restaraunts, grocery stores, etc, but there's no wal-mart or big places like that. Often when we need basic household things, we've had to travel a good 40 min. to the nearesr Wal-Mart. That can be annoying! We have a lot of Dollar Stores lol
It's hard though because if you need to go shopping (besides for groceries) you have to actually travel a good hour-hour and a half. I don't mind it too much though because the drive can be fun/interesting
Still, when I need something right away, it's such a pain to have to wait or either travel that far. I have to make a 40 min drive JUST for nail supplies (I work in nail design) and that can be extremely annoying.
