Some Reasons Why I Moved

Locals ask me, “Why did you move heeere?” with a questioning sneer. It’s simple really: small town living, even with its different political/religious views, over-abundance of Bud Light, lack of “things to do”, is more palatable at this point in my life than ever before.

I love my little trailer. Sure, it’s a mess, but it’s our mess to change, clean up and fix up.

I love that I can drive to work in 10 minutes or less. I actually love that my in-laws are 20 minutes away, more because it makes my wife very happy to be close to her mom.

Most of all I love that it is quiet. Before I moved we heard gunshots daily, sirens all the time, noisy neighbors, bratty neighborhood kids screaming at all hours, general noise. I’m sitting on my porch and all I really hear is the wind in the trees and the occasional traffic on the highway.

Did I mention trails? Yeah, that too, literally right around the corner.


Some nice double-track in the pines.


Nice vistas.


Where the pavement ends.


And hills.

Yeah, I’m a happy camper right now. Hopefully in 6 months I’ll still be signing this tune!

    WOW! You sound happy. I mean, HAPPY!

    Funny thing is, I knew you could do this. It’s incredible to know that you didn’t wait any longer. It won’t take much time for you to know exactly what I mean.

    Congrats, Wanderer. You deserve to be happy.

    OUTSTANDING!! Sure… there are advantages & disadvantages to almost every scenario, but in this instance, it certainly sounds like the benefits of small-town living are beginning to show how they bear fruit. Congratulations!
