    Yes. I don't do country. The darkness and total silence scares the mess out of me!

    Trailer in the country with less than 50 SO's running around or in the inner city with nearly 600 SO's running around?
    Seeing as where I live now was once named the murder capital of the US...I'll go with the trailer. ANYDAY.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    Absolutely! And if I knew it was surrounded by 44 sexual offender... I can't even imagine my fear! I'd be wetting the bed cuz I'd be too afraid to go to the bathroom!
    Everything stated in my posts are my opinion, and my opinion only
    In a sense, the Internet is the largest mob ever assembled. It sometimes transforms otherwise inhibited people into unrestrained, faceless "conduits for emotion."

    Yes. My ex-hubby and I lived out in the boonies and I hated it. Although we had an alarm system I was still frightened. Especially after I woke up one morning after he'd gone to work and found someone had busted out the back window of our explorer which was right outside our bedroom window...and I never heard a thing.

    Well if I had no choice and I had to live there? You can bet your sweet bippy I would have all doors and windows locked at all times. I've had to live in some rough places, even as a kid, but I do respect a lock. We always had a gun in the house when I was a kid too.

    I'm not sure how remote the area is. I read that it is a retirement community and that there are neighbors on one side of the trailer, but not on the other. The wooded areas on one side would scare me even if I had a dog and a gun, because I figure that the gun couldn't be kept loaded due to kids. I'd feel safe with a man or other adult there though.

    Oh and a couple of dogs too. Not just one. Big ones out in the yard and a yippy one that stayed in the house with me.

    I have lived out in the country all of my life before my marriage and now, being divorced raising my kids alone, I still have to say I live in the country alone but with my kids. I'm so used to it, I don't think about being scared. But, of course, the SO factor would be another thing....I would not like that. I don't have any SOs in my area that I'm aware of. I do not own a gun....maybe I should. Don't have a dog either but have two very quiet cats.

    Nope, we have lived and raised 2 children in the country and never lived in fear. I think no matter where anyone lives, especially if they have children, precautions should be taken to help insure safety and well being. Nobody is immune to crime...it happens everywhere.

    You make a good point Cerenity2U. I think the scariest place I ever got lost was when I was in NYC and hubby took a wrong turn (It's his hometown go figure) we ended up at 175th and Amsterdam. Scared me good. But one of his cousins lives near there and said she never was scared at all.

    I would be definitely. Everytime in my life that I stayed at some remote place I felt insecure.
