Are There Any Cities in the Mainland U.S Where It Is Feasible to Live in the Rural Areas Around Town
Are there any cities in the mainland U.S where it is feasible to live in the rural areas around town, (aka own land) and commute into the city for work, either daily or when necessary?Yes. Yes every city in the United States except maybe Los Angeles, CA and San Diego, CA. (Well, probably anywhere in southern California because nobody wants to live there) You can live in the mountains of the Poconos on 25 acres and work every day in New York City. There are commuter buses that run hourly. You can work in downtown Chicago and take a train, or a 45-minute car ride, from any suburb. You can live on 100 acres on the rolling hills of Ohio and drive, comfortably, to Cleveland or Columbus or Cincinnati. I travel, a lot. 45 minutes outside almost any large city there are corn fields, wheat fields, pasture land, miles of forests and scrub land. There is the city. You drive for an hour through the high-rises and skyscrapers and then...there you are, 20-minutes later, you're in the middle of forests and pastureland. It so exciting! Las Vegas! OMG! You're driving through miles and miles of nothing. Beautiful desert country. And you see the city on the horizon. So, you drive for an hour. The city gets bigger and bigger and closer. And then you're in "the city that never sleeps." Denver, Co. 45-minutes outside the city there are elk on the mountainsides.It should be mandatory that everyone must travel before you can vote or get married or make any life changing decision (joke). If all you ever see is inner city New York City or Detroit or Dallas or Atlanta, how can you have any perspective on your life and other people's lives?â â â â â âWhat types of railroad crossings warning devices do you encounter in Urban areas? In Rural Areas?You are talking about passive crossing in a rural areas, there is nothing there but a sign, other crossings have bells, lights, gates, etcâ â â â â âWhat are the costs associated with upgrading a mobile mast/base station from 2G to 3G in the UK? Is it a cost-effective way of improving broadband access in some rural areas?The biggest issue is probably backhaul capacity. In order to provide 3G swapping out the base station is probably not too significant but getting fibre to the base station might be a real challenge rurally. The common way to do backhaul (the connection from the base station back to the core network) in rural situations (or other areas challenging to fibre) is to use microwave links. Upgrading those microwave links from 2G capacity to 3G capacity might be difficult if they are far from the nearest fibre node or passing through hostile territory.It makes sense from the perspective of some communities to have 3/4G instead of, or as an intermediate step before, fibre. But I have never seen a public discussion about mobile broadband being an alternative becuase I think everyone is pushing for BT to meet the challenge. I would love to see Arqiva and the network operators cooperative on this but I do not know.Edit, taken from a recent article: Why Comrade Cameron went all Russell Brand on the UK's mobile networksnMobile coverage reaches 98 per cent of the population - but around a fifth of the landmass is without a signal. Some of the operator's own estimates put the cost of bridging the gap between u00a32bn and u00a34bn - and there aren't enough people in those rural notspots to justify the investment.

And you probably complain too much as in too stuffy or too less technology or no tv or bathroom something like that and you know how people who live in small places say its a small world? It means they usually all know each other but since your new and you do not really know them and you dont want to, they think your angry. Its not much, its just our attitude difference in rural areas and urban areas, its just different styles and thinking.
