We are not anti-social or anything but we do like our privacy. And the quiet!!!!
Plus we have more dogs and birds than any city ordinance would allow. One thing I have notices is that the closer you get to a city (city limits) the smaller and closer the farms are to one another. We are so far out we don't have to worry about that. And, we are surrounded by huge cattle ranches and hunting leases that will never be developed, at least not in our lives.
