Every year I get into an argument with my wife about how she would like to live in the burbs and I just can’t do it. She loves the country too but sometimes misses neighbours and community. I drove 1 1/2 hours to my buddies last Sunday for a visit/cookout in the burbs. Spent about 7 hours outside on a beautiful day and maybe 45 minutes of the 7 hours was actually enjoyable ambiance wise. Between the neighbour on the right running a table saw for 3 hours, then the neighbour behind him doing lawn maintenance for 2 straight hours, then the neighbour on the left with barking dogs and screaming kids with music blaring. Then deciding to rev his bike in the driveway for at least an hour. I don’t know how you people do it, I will never give this up.
