It's in a rural area where there's no streetlights so it's dark as fuck.

And it's really quiet.

I'm not used to this at all, I used to live in the city with lots of noise and lights 24/7...

You'll get used to it.

I felt the same when I moved from city center to a more rural location. At first the silence and total lack of light pollution at night felt like I was living in the aftermath of a zombie/nuclear apocalypse. After a while you start to appreciate it.

Re: I just moved to my new house in the middle of nowhere and it's quiet, too quiet
We once moved from NYC (Murray Hill on lower Park Ave @ 35th St) to a ranch on five acres far north of Scottsdale Arizona. It was a 30 minute drive to get a pack of cigarettes at the local circle K.

The place was awful and we hated it. Had tons of space, horses, a pool, and the land of course. Still hated it.

Fortunately I bought it after the prices crashed in 2008. So I was able to sell it at enough of a profit to move us into town and into something smaller, less secluded and easier to take care of.

All that glitters is NOT necessarily gold!!

Re: I just moved to my new house in the middle of nowhere and it's quiet, too quiet
I like the 5 acres with a pool and hated it Guy. Poor horse also. People always think they need to have livestock because they have land at the peril to the animals. 5 acres is a hobby anyways. Alot of people have hobbies that they get bored with sooner or later.

You don't drive a half an hour for a pack of smokes you buy a couple cartons and go into town once a week or less.

If you move out of town then you have to think. Make your trips count. Your tradeing in convience for a quiet peaceful life and can't expect it to be same. Thats the whole point. Embrace the quiet and the darkness.

I walk around my place at night in the pitch black without a flashlight. There's nothing to be scared of but your own imagination. Learn to hear. learn to listen. The stars and night sky are amazing.

Get yourself a great dog but keep it inside with you at night. Theirs nothing worse than a dog barking at the coyotes all night and chaseing stuff that goes bump in the night.

The safest place for both you and your dog is behind a door. Nobody comes thru a door with a big bark behind it. Dogs can be injured and killed outside.

Yard lights can confort you if your scared.Keep the ones in the house off. You see outside better that way.

Re: I just moved to my new house in the middle of nowhere and it's quiet, too quiet
You could play 10 or so 'nature tapes' all at once if you want company. May I suggest a big-ass dog if you have the time and money or stick with the 'music' playing 24/7 and gradually back it off over the next 30 days. It will be just like it is today but you will hear things you can't today, like a breaking a stem of grass, don't go overboard where you think it is too noisy after you adjust.
If you are alone expect to eventually think of everyone you ever knew going back to the 1st grade, or you could go with the nature tapes.

Oh...they might look cute...but they ain't.

You should here some of the noices they make...sounds like a pissed of cat on acid.

I suppose you might be able to domesticate one if you got it when it was a baby...dunno how you'd do that.

Unless you stole it away from it's mother...and she ain't gonna be too keen on that idea I'd imagine.

If you did manage to domesticate one I'd never turn my back to it just incase it decided to freak out and gnaw your face off for a snack.

Re: I just moved to my new house in the middle of nowhere and it's quiet, too quiet
I know a place where a spot 90 miles by 90 miles is empty except for one small Indian settlement. The whole are has industrial roads because of oil and wood so you can drive most of it. Since some is muskeg beside sand an pines it would make a great recreational place if some trails were made so people with golf carts could bring their machines and beer and just drive around for the day and other sections for atv's and get a dozer on the muskeg in the winter and remove the moss and in the summer you should be able to run jet-skies over to various spots of high-ground that are basically islands and I don't think bears could even get there because it is very soft when you are on the moss.

Awesome country but it really needs some people, at least on the weekends and the way people flock to that kind of country today it would be able to turn a profit if done right and if the economy tanks and you want to be 'lost' there is lots of room for that. I actually hope to get back there and do that, not that many of 'my plans' ever, well ... go according to the plan. lol

Advance first aid makes some light reading when you spend a lot of tome alone, might I also suggest getting some data off 'earth clinic' as it has the home remedy treatments for a lot of ailments that can follow a person no matter where he goes.

I see SAT internet now has bundles that allow 700GB download for $150/mo which would be just what you need if living alone or with a family with 4 kids that all use the net to stay in touch.

What is the standard cure for forest fires these days, I was either thinking concrete or underground although I also considered water and a pump that uses a thin solution with clay in it so before the fire gets there you spray the whole 'house' down and hopefully you live through the fire and the clay could be removed just with lots of water under pressure

Re: I just moved to my new house in the middle of nowhere and it's quiet, too quiet
Well that would take all the fun out of it. Why do most people look far away when they have a house with an attached garage? For very little extra money a crawlspace could be part of the original build or a renovation that is tax deductible because it is considered a storm shelter/safe room. (under the garage cement slab) In a disaster if you can survive 2 weeks that might be enough for most of the 'others' to leave or be so hungry they are docile.

Would the thin clay slurry be enough to save the structure even if a few canned goods exploded? I'm looking for a zero cost to 'rebuild' after a wild fire in a pine forest. Root cellars should be part of any homestead and buried containers would be perfect. Solar and optic fiber would solve the lighting problems for the deeper 'caves'.
