And it's nice to see you're not heavy into technology, I am myself but I am from the generation that grew up with computers (33 years old today)

My dream would be to make enough money so I could go buy a home in the woods, near a little town with a decent supermarket and just live in peace
Check the news once or twice a day online, work outside, or work inside, take care of dogs and cats, and just enjoy life.

Alas, I doubt life will allow me to escape it easily

Hugs Thanks! Hugs No I haven't been into it since the microwave first came out. My Mom bought one of those expensive things and the food looked raw that it cooked. And it has always been rubbery to me. I do not use microwaves or dishwashers. I do like some of the newer gadgets for cooking but I tend to cook things on my stove/oven or crockpot. And I don't use the crockpot much. I also like those convection air cookers and own a couple but use them as much as the crockpot. When you cook for one or two to eat, it's easier just to use my stove/oven. I have a microwave because the hubby uses it to warm stuff up in for himself. And he insisted on having it. It's ancient and has a dial timer and I'm amazed it still works. Microwave/convection oven thingie.

The only electronic game systems I have are those little ones that were popular I guess 10 years ago? I haven't seen them in a while, nintendo? small box thingies you put a smaller game into and it plays. I liked the pacman one. Got a couple for the kids back then and we still have them. These things.

I really do not like all the tech. I spend way too much time online on my laptop. I used to read a lot of books. I've thought about putting myself on a schedule for my online stuff. But then, winter's coming and I won't be going outside much then. So in the springtime, I will probably go dark for a  while. Got some things to do that season and I'd like to get a nice garden in next year. If I can keep the cats out of it. Lots of cayenne? Works for other critters.  

Can you do a job from your house? Computer companies will allow this sometimes and I haven't looked so don't know who all allows this type work. But if you can work from your house or move 30-45 minutes outside of the town you work in, you can be in the sticks or a smaller town. Most small town people travel for work. And depending on where you want to be located at, some places are cheap. I can buy a house around me for around... well the prices vary but the range seems to be $45,000-250,000. Some of that is pure locale too. If you want to set up land, you are talking some upfront money. But do what tons of others I know did. Buy the land. Then as you get the money, set it up. Get your septic system and water systems put in. Then get some electric. Then save some cash and look for a cheap trailer/mobile home. You will find that some are cheap because the owner wants them moved. But you want to move them to your place anyway. The moving fees are expensive. Look into them. Then find a cheap trailer with that info in mind to bargain with and get a place to stay dry and warm until you build, if you build. I've seen trailers that the owners gave away because they wanted them moved and couldn't afford it. Just gotta be patient and look for this stuff daily. Others are looking to so you want to call first.  

Here's what I know. I looked at land once in Montana. Big sky country. Beautiful country. Rugged, isolated. And then I found out I would have to ship in all my water to me. No water out there. Cheap land, under $100 an acre, must buy in 100 acre lots. I was all for it. Till I found out I would have to bring in ALL my water. Expensive that would be and I would need a 4-wheel drive vehicle to get there. Walk the land you want to buy before you put any money on it. Check local ordinances and cost of all this junk. I had to pay $100 for the permit and testing of the septic system place. And if there were more holes involved it was more money but my first hole was good. I was happy about that. It can run into some cash those denials.

It's not all it's cracked up to be. There are no city services to help out with stuff like litter on the road or clean up of the dead critters. They do cut the grass on the side of the road around here but I'm not sure if it's because of the electric lines really. They keep the trees trimmed for those things. But they run over and mow the trash into pieces if there's any there.

There are some places you can not have outdoor fires. Fire bans. When I give up smoking for a week, the perfume of the cows and bull next door in the pasture waffle over and stink up the place. There is no one to tell you to clean up your yard or cut your grass. The critters destroy your garden and your chickens. There is no medical care to speak of, most of the places around here tend to send you home to die. That's what 2 different small town hospitals around us did to the hubby. We took him to Louisville, U of L where they are treating him and he is still here.  Cheer He would have died if we listened to the docs around here. They gave us no hope. So medical care is good for ongoing problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, broken bones, regular labs, stuff like that, but major stuff gets sent to the big city, Louisville. Cancer, stuff like that.

The grocery stores.... SUCK!!! Coming from Dallas, I was shocked. Wha??? No fresh jalapenos? Like jalapenos were something foreign to the area? They sell them now a days in little bags and it takes a couple bags to make a batch of stuffed jalapenos but they are not always available either. You will get over a whole lot of foods and choices living in a small town. A WHOLE LOT of food stuff. Or you will order some from the internet. I don't like lobster but the last time I saw a live lobster waiting to be sold was.... thinking.... well, I just don't remember when now. I see those frozen tails but never live. And the grocery store around me got sold out to IGA. When IGA took it over, that's the first time our little town had a deli selection of the lunch meats and cheese. It's not big either. And it's the first time you could get a hot roasted or fried chicken or lunch plate or cold sandwich too. Wasn't that long ago. They tried to bring in the big city stuff but it didn't sell. So now it's back to the basics beside the deli. People seem to like the tiny deli area stuff.

Let's see. If you want clothes, unless you go 30 minutes to another town, there is the Dollar General store and it has a few clothes in it for sale. Otherwise, garage sales or second hand store. No shoes for sale except at the dollar store too. There isn't much in town. No bars yet. I hear they are going to allow 3 bars in the county. They just started selling alcohol in the last year or so. Was a sly move on their part too. Most of the county didn't want alcohol sold here. I didn't either. I liked it dry around here. So things change no matter where you go. They added a school tax to my water bill.  Eyeroll Every place has it's problems.

The grass is not greener on the other side. Just different. It's slow and boring out here. The library is tiny. And the town shuts down on Sundays. Most of it anyway. No movie theater, no arcades, no places like that. We have a few parks with some playground stuff, bingo hall, school football, lots of churches, a play/actor place that I hear is pretty good, a few restaurants, gas stations, drug stores, banks, nothing to do here. NOTHING! So boring compared to Dallas, TX or even Biloxi, MS. But I like it.  V6sRZf4

When I was younger, I would have never ever moved here. Too dang boring!!! I get snowed in if we get enough snow or ice. In the city, that's not a problem. In the country, you are stuck. In Dallas, I watched the weather because my boyfriend and I had a small roofing company for a while. Out here, I watch the weather to stock up when it's going to be bad weather and I am going to be snowed in or lose my power. Must have backup heating. I have a long, long driveway to shovel out and I'm not going to do that.  Chuckle A small area that if I slide right, I will not have that car no more because I'm not sure what it will look like once it quits rolling down that small hill there till it stops in the neighbor's horse pasture. Exciting that is.  Chuckle

IMO, to live out in the sticks, you have to like yourself somewhat or you will never make it out here. The silence will kill you. It's not really silent though. But after the city noises, it will appear silent. And after a while, the frogs singing will become very loud, especially at night. I used to think that noise was from bugs but it's frogs. Tree frogs. You have to be prepared to be lonely because most of the time, you are not within shouting range of your neighbors. I guess I could scream at them but they won't hear me from my house. Don't bother calling the fire department if your house is on fire. They really won't be able to put it out if you don't have a pond or river they can pull water out of. Your water hose isn't going to be enough and besides their little water trunk, your house is gonna burn to the ground. They can protect the outer buildings maybe but not the house. And it's a volunteer $100 a year for the fire department. I don't pay it. I don't see any reason to. I can use my water hose myself.

You need a tractor if you get any land with your place. And you want land. A small tractor is the only way to keep it cut down. Taxes are cheap in the sticks on property. But ya gotta have a car.  And gas money.  And you have to plan things. Time, you lose time on the road. But ya know what? I don't wear a seat belt ever unless I'm in the kid's car. And around here, the law doesn't look at me about it. I got stopped once by the highway patrol and asked and I told him, "I didn't forget to put it on. I don't wear them because of my shoulders. Give me my ticket." His mouth fell open and he went away. No ticket. He berated my hubby who told him he just forgot. But he left me alone after I told him that. So small towns have their perks too. They don't care if I don't follow that law.   Wink

Wow, thanks for writing all that!

Sorry my response will not be nearly as lengthy.

I can understand the 'grass isn't always greener' thing, but despite me being somewhat young I think I would enjoy the quiet life.
I do enjoy my silence and do enjoy my thoughts with myself, I don't think this would be a problem

I do think my select addictions to clothing, electronics, and other things may limit me. But in the end I think I will get over those rather quickly

Unfortunately I cannot work from home in my current position, but I'm sure there are many project management jobs which allow you to work from home most of the time.

And I guess most places has its ups and downs, but something tells me I'll be trapped in my 9-5 life for a long time, probably my fault at the end of the day

I can't tolerate being around wifi and cell phones and smart meters very long without feeling sick, then getting extremely sick.

A nine month exposure to a smart meter next to my home office put me in the hospital twice with peripheral edema of the legs(they swelled up like I had gout because my peripheral circulation was damaged. My vaso-constrictor muscles in the legs weren't pushing blood and waste back up to my heart.

Pulsed RF radiation damages membranes including blood vessels, and it also caused involuntary muscle contractions, and can block both voluntary and involuntary ones.

After the initial hospitalizations I developed other symptoms and hypersensitivity.

In subsuquent exposures to smart meters at close proximity my heart beat was induced into arrythmia.

The muscles contracted "out of time" and I felt like I almost blew out a heart valve the first time.

Just like a car with out of time ignition, you can do engine damage; you can cause heart damage if the muscles squeeze at the wrong time.

This leaves me in a bad position.

I can't work anywhere with WIFI, or a smart meter near me.

So my best alternative is outdoor work, like farm work, lawn service, leaf service.

Problem with lawn work is you need a CELL PHONE to get the jobs.

Please everybody abandon this toxic crap.

3/4 of my dogs now have tumors from living near the cell towers that wouldn't be there if you didn't have a dunce fone.

One of them died from mast cell cancer a couple years ago.

Live in a mobile home. They are big faraday cages. The windows are bad but you can close them off and no wifi or any signal will get into your house. My cell phones do not get a signal in my house. I have to step outside and walk away from the house to get a signal. Then I can come back to my front porch and sit and talk on it. But not inside my house. My kids hate to come here because their Iphones don't work. I do have wifi set up inside. I first got it because my mother-in-law paid for the internet and I pirated off her but I had to buy a modem to set that up and set up the modem in her window sit in my window to pick it up. And my vids turned and turned so I played the vid silently and then replayed it so it wouldn't do that. Sucked. Then they changed that and it really sucked but I wasn't paying for internet so.... then when she died, I got internet but the hubby needed cable or something. We also inherited my MIL's flat tv. We have an old one that we don't have a box for so it's basically useless except for DVD or VHRs. And the hubby got tired of those. So I put him online with his tv and he is happy now.  

I have a cell phone because the kid pays for it. She thinks I need one. The Obama phone came because I am on Medicaid. Otherwise, I wouldn't have one. I am not going to pay for my own bug. I know ya've heard me bitching about that. It's one of my pet peeves. Not going to do that.

I am so sorry to hear about this. Have you tried to move to that area where wifi is forbidden? https://www.npr.org/sections/alltechcons...are-banned

I thought about it when I read up on that disorder. When they put smart meters on my pole, I was very upset but was told that they didn't have any of the other meters and they were replacing ALL the meters with these. I could either use it or go without. But then my electric bill kept getting higher and higher and when I  called them on it, for some reason, my next month's bill was cheap. I thought they were ripping me off. I can read those meters too. I had to read my old meter monthly and call it in to the electric company and every so often they would send someone out to check it to keep ya honest.  Wink

Out here where I am at, the tower is down I hear. As it's been down a long time, I would think it was taken offline. AT&T tower. I do not pick up any other wifi signal, even outside my house. My neighbors are too far away.  

What you need to get is one of those dinky faraday cage wallets that they use for credit cards and such. Put your phone in it when it's near you. Otherwise, put it in a tree or bush where you are working so it will pick up a signal and alert you. Leave a nice message but you will get a number anyway to call back so don't worry about missed calls. And get an answering service for your work. They can relay stuff to you every so often at a certain time so you can catch up. It's a hassle without a cell because there is no public payphones on the corners anymore.

There are places in the mountains and hills that do not get any cell signals. Dead zones. They are not marked on maps either. There are some in the N. Carolina mountains and hills. Lots and lots of them too.  Yeah3

I have an option of wire or wifi but I don't want to pay for any tv programing. And if I cut off the old man, he is gonna want some tv programing. He does not do any computers. It's surprising we met online really. He hasn't touched a computer since I met him. I'm the computer/internet junkie.  1dunno1  He does like his little old cracked up Iphone the kids gave him to play with. He got himself a FB account to keep up with the kids but it's all he uses and it's dinky. He doesn't get online much at all. Whims.  Eyeroll

We are not much into tech. I have old fashioned games that do not use batteries and stuff. No fancy cook stuff. No fancy stuff really. But that's by choice. I don't like buying batteries and I have to buy them for my mouse and tv remote. If it uses a battery, it doesn't get used because I don't seem to buy batteries much. I also do not like things that just drain electricity. Your toaster, any 'smart' gadget, clocks, all that crap that keeps on little lights and stuff. Costs me money. I have a broiler if I want toast. Just gotta turn it.  Wink

I don't think many of the people around me are into it. I have one neighbor that has wifi but I don't pick hers up. Too far away. Old folks around me don't have any of the newer tech stuff. They still do things like they always did. They are dying off these days. The towers and such around me can be silenced in the right locations and you won't get a signal. You advertise on the local radio station and by paper fliers or something. The local business guys all will put up your cards and fliers as they expect you to do if you have a shop. Not much landscaping in the country though. Lots of farm work though. Some of them will even give you a place to stay and all. I don't know any of them but I've talked to a guy that worked and got a place and a truck too as long as he worked there. My BIL works for a cow farmer. He only works around 6 hours or so a day. I guess he makes around 200-300 a week in pay. It pays his bills.

That has to suck because you are restricted to where you can go. Wow.... It's only going to get worse with 5G. You need to find a place now to go hide in. Look around the mountains and hills. The mountains act as barriers although they try to put them on top of them, they still don't reach down into the hollows sometimes. You can hide in them there hills and get stuff delivered to you. Don't go too far out or internet will never reach ya unless it satellite and that sucks, it's throttled and cost a whole lot of money. So find a spot in them hollows, behind some dirt or something. Ask the realtor or landlords about it. Tell them you don't want reception and see what they say.

Even cars are wired. The hubby connected his cell phone to the car. When you are in the car, the car rings. New car.  My old one broke down. They are all connected. Satellite and all.  Eyeroll

It is, as online communication goes. But, except for the content enhancements and public access , it's not a lot different than the "news groups" on ARPA Net or the email repeaters.

The biggest difference is folks like Zuck not harvesting and selling user data. This forum is certainly small in FB or Instagram Mega followers terms. If it got really big, I would likely not post much, if at all.
Leave the gun, take the Cannoli.

But you know you could have a cell phone without using social media, right?

I hope your detox from that crap goes well and you spend your extra time doing something you love

Yeah I know but cell phone are so ridiculously unhealthy for us, and I just wanted to do away with it...lol I still have a landline

Chuckle  My parents still have a landline, I don't understand why

I would like to one day limit my digital screen time, hopefully soon, I am just pretty addicted to playing some games in the evenings while I relax


You keep a landline because it works during a power outage and you don't have to worry about how you're going to recharge your phone.  

I can't get a landline in my area anymore.  They destroyed the phone line boxes on my road.  I have to use internet phone.  Cell phone doesn't work great where we are.   When we have a power outage, sometimes I can't call it in.  I just hope someone else does.
