    You know you live in the boonies when every pizza place in town won't deliver to your house!

    ...when a car drives by and you look outside to see why a car is driving by your house.

    ...or when the neighbor calls and says, "Look outside at this guy walking down the road...do you know him? What's he doing out here?"

    ...or when your friends ask, "aren't there laws about chickens where you live?" and you just chuckle remembering that your house sits on what used to be a hog farm, and being grateful that it no longer is a hog farm.

    You know you live in the boonies when~~

    you call the Sheriff's dept to come to your home and they "don't know that area..."

    the pizza delivery people WILL deliver, IF you meet them at the gas station 20 minutes from your home

    the power goes out; the power co. arrives in their big truck to trace the line; their truck can't make it up the mountain so you chaffeur them in your Terra-x (cause you want your power back on)

    Google doesn't have your address listed and located
