No suburbs allowed. You are forced to live out your days in either a downtown metroplex or out in the sticks. Which would you pick?

I live in the sticks. Literally. Ok, well, they're logs, technically. :)

I gave up my big city life for cabin living. I came on vacation here and just knew I would move here one day...It took me three years to make it happen, but I did it!

Even though I was born on a farm and raised in a mostly rural area - I'm a city girl to my core. I will never live in a small town again, three years teaching in one was enough.

The sticks? I'm picturing the freaks from deliverance.


I'll be in the city.

I HATE the suburbs. It's a hideous, god forsaken place anyway. City all the way. The bigger the better. I LOVE NYC.

I'll take the city. I love the hustle and bustle of it. I can vacation in the country.

I already picked 18 months ago. We went to the sticks!!!! We've done the city thing and I much prefer being in the country. We have our land that we can do what we want with and great neighbors who aren't too close.

I'm a country girl - I like visiting the the city and the culture of said city, but I want to come back to the starry skies and quiet nights of the country

City. Actually Id love to move to a big city with a professional hockey team. I've already lived in the country and while I don't hate it, it was frustrating being so far away from stores and restaurants

I always thought I'd choose country until I moved to VT, where there is no city. Figured out pretty quickly, I need to at least be near a city. So city it is.

Since I don't drive, it had better be city. I've lived in downtownish areas of San Francisco, DC, Cincinnati. I like cities. I LOVED being up in the foothills here for 2 weeks recently, but not being able to go anywhere... wouldn't work.

You know how long it took me to pick "Country"? Me neither. Clocks can't measure an interval of time that short.

She wanted to live in the city and he wanted the country.

It depends. Does it have to be the big city closest to me? If so there's no way I'm spending my days in the city of Detroit.

The sticks. Somewhere where I can shoot 1,000 yards without five neighbors complaining about the noise or the path my bullet took through their house...

Guns shoot 1000 yards?

Mine will. A .30-06 can fire miles, and a good marksman can expect to hit something out to about 1,000 yards with it.

I've got a 30-30 that can touch 600 yds. It would never have enough knock down at 600 but can still hit it. I wish I had a 30-06. I'm jealous lol.
