People who live in houses off remote highways far from nearby towns, what do you do for a living?

  1. I used to work for a warehouse in a metropolitan area that was hours away from my house. The only reason I did that was because the jobs that were hiring were hours away from my house and the houses near the jobs cost at least 10X more than where I was living

  2. I do not live there yet, but we have 100 acres neae the smallest of towns. There is a post office, an auto repair place, a feed store and a church, it takes a our 30 seconds to get through that town.

    The land is about 45 min from one smallish city and an hour from a larger city with an airport. Not ultra remote, but for day to day life we might as well be hours away from anywhere. We are building a house there and will hopefully move in next summer.

    We both work from home. There is good cell reception so we can get a cell based router if our starlink kit doesn’t ship before we move out there. Grocery trips will likely be every couple of weeks, meal planning is a necessity in those situations, as well as a decent kitchen garden for highly perishable produce (I’ll probably set up a small hydroponic garden for stuff like herbs, lettuce and cucumbers during the winter).

  3. I’m a firefighter/EMT in a medium-large US city. I’m assigned to a particularly busy (read: high-crime) part of the city. I love what I do, but after a busy shift there’s nothing better than escaping to my cabin in the woods where there’s nothing but peace and quiet and no crime; hell, I don’t even lock my doors, like ever.
