    Too much country!

    I live about 60 miles away from the closest big city in both directions. I live in boring, flat Kansas. My husband and I moved out here from Washington for a lower cost of living. Unfortunately, I feel like we've given up a lot to move out here. I only have 8 neighbors and wheat...
