    @SortOfTested I grew up in a rural area it's not as great as ppl think it is lol

    Any time I wanna go shopping for clothes I gotta drive at least an hour, takes at least 20 mins to get to a grocery store, any theres literally nothing to do entertainment wise.

    Can understand not wanting to live in one of the major cities with a milli+ population, but a small city with like 150-250k is where it's at lol

    When I lived in Texas, that was basically the story. Grocery store was 20 minutes (30 if traffic on the one lane cow path), gas station was 5 miles. Not a sidewalk in sight.

    I'd much rather deal with NIMBYs than having fuck all to do in BFE. Never fantasized about the little house on the prairie supply run.

    So down.

    @Stuxnet Couldn't agree more. If the store is more than 15min away (by walking), it's too far from me.

    @Jilano For real.

    I went to DC last summer and where our hotel was had a grocery store, several restaurants, a pharmacy and stop to get on the Metro within a 1-1.5 mile radius.

    I'm tryna live somewhere like that. The problem is, the tech city (it's actually more like three of them in a close region) in my state has a plethora of companies that build their own campuses, and it's a sizeable trip away from the actual city. It's annoying because I wanna live there, but I still want to be able to walk *everywhere*, work included.

    @Stuxnet Tough choice. Are all those campuses "reachable" with a bike or public transport? That could be a way, I guess.
    Otherwise you could try to remote half the time (or similar).

    @Jilano it's like a 20 minute car drive to get to most of them, so not really.

    Ig driving just to work isn't as bad as driving everywhere, but either way I'll figure something out.

    To me, if « I made it » as a dev, it would mean I don’t have to work for a living anymore. SO, BFE sounds pretty damn good provided it’s by a sea and has year around sun.

    I have it, it sucks ass. There's no one for like 20 miles, nearest town's like 50 niles away, jack shit is within walking distance.

    After 20+ yrs in the corpo I got my little house in the prairie now (last year), the the all f-ing nature decided "see? something new in the area! let's play with the guy!". Every little birdie is now on my roof, every mouse sits in my garden, minks and ferrets and whatnot. And the slowest internet. I am thinking to move back...
