Re: If you want to live out here.

Very nice.  I love living out in the country.  I just bought a new pair of binoculars so I can watch the deer and turkeys in the field, though I often have them in my front yard.  I even have a blue heron that frequents my pond during the summer.

At the very end of this road is a gate. I did a house about three miles in for Hughesnet. It is one of the largest cattle ranches in Calif..

Road into my house and last power pole 100 ft from house after fighting with Forest Service to bring in on their road. What an ordeal that was for approval even though an established forest road! (Government land)

Snow and ice is the killer. Downpour no problem with 4 wheel drive. Pretty hard packed road.

Re: If you want to live out here.

Snow and ice is the killer here, too, though more the snow than ice, as we don't get many ice storms, just a ton of snow.  Right now we have about two feet, though that will melt in the next couple of days.  We have had the main road wash out a couple of times with some nasty floods over the last eight years.  The price of living in the sticks, I guess, but I wouldn't trade it for anything, even FIOS.  Well...maybe if someone offered me a shoe box full of fifties.  LOL.

Two feet would put everything to a stop here in Boston Mountains. Normal is 6 inches at most but it turns to ice the longer it stays with sun during day and freezing at night.

Not had a winter where I'm at. Dusting of snow, 60-70 even in February.
