I live in the country on a little over 50 acres. I live about 10 miles from "civilization" if a town of less than 5,000 counts as such. I'm fortunate that my commute means walking a few hundred yards to the barn
My hubby works a f/t job outside of the farm, but is on the road all day, every day pretty much. He is a mainline cable fiber optic tech, he covers a few counties in his area but in a company vehicle so there's no added expense due to where we live/commute.
Before I came back to training full time, I commuted 2 hrs one way to work at the brokerage office. All of the driving was a pain but I am not a city girl.
