@tronayne,
Hmmm - sounds eerily like my li'l neck o'the woods - and I'm only a 'skip and a hop' nw of Houston. Nearest neighbour some 500 yds away, nearest small-town/gas - 12 miles - but ... we do have an ice-house only a coupla miles away. ;-)
Have deers all over the place - negotiating bobwar fences (that's barbed-wire for you northerners) like they weren't even there. Two bands of coyotes (5-6+ and 15+) roaming around - can hear them making a kill almost every night. Oh - and of course the ever-present wild hogs ... make any pasture look like a newly-ploughed potato-field in no time at all. I was severely bothered with them until I acquired two donkeys. After the donkeys - no more hogs! (they are extremely territorial critters).

The big difference though - temperature!!! (he, he). I just l-o-v-e walking out into that wall of heat and humidity, feeling the goodness of heat seeping into my ole bones - ahhhh.
Got a somewhat hefty generator and enough gas stashed away - comes in handy almost every year during the hurricane season although we are sufficiently far from the coast that we are not overly bothered (other than Ike some few years back - nearly tore off my roof).

One thing that always used to surprise me - they have a painted mid-stripe on even the narrowest of country roads (hardly wide enough for two vehicles) - I'm sure the reason is that after visiting the ice-house, you plant your truck across the midstripe and follow it all the way home ;-)

So yes - life is good!

ReaperX7 (OP), get out off the computer and out of the house. Your imagination is impressive, but it seems to be edging on the arrival of delusion.

Ain't that what ever'body does? Always thought that's what the blasted line was for (plus those white lines they're putting on the edges, too!

Oh, yeah, you don't wanna be driving mid-hood planted on those sidelines (unless you're from Michigan -- everybody else in the country gets all nervous when they're driving in snow and start sliding toward the ditch. We just holler, "Here, hold my beer and watch this!"). 4X4 helps.

Been there, done that. A shovel, come-along, tow straps, and tire chains are sometimes helpful, too.

Did you not know the Rupture is coming? (Talk about imagination.)
Planet-X, eternal paradise, and Slack for those who prepare. I think Pat said he's got some server space already. I don't know what happens to the rest (unenlightened).
X-Day, it's going to be gross.
