With all of the alluring benefits, it would seem that there are no drawbacks to consider; but don’t be fooled that country living is the idyllic lifestyle. On the lighter side of the cons is the distance factor and all the challenges it brings. While fewer trips to the store may lead to more time at home, it usually means more time driving to get there. It also means you cannot easily run to the store for that one ingredient you need to make your famous casserole dish. Furthermore, country stores don’t always carry the same variety. It may be harder to find the Thai food ingredients you need or to even find your favorite style or brand of clothing. While the internet and planned trips to the city can help, you may have to get used to waiting. There is also the cost of fuel to be considered. Though you may make fewer trips, you will most likely have farther to go. This drives up the cost of fuel as well as the miles on your car.
With nature sitting on your doorstep you may be inclined to forget about your neighbors, but you cannot count them out altogether. While it may sound crass, it is true that the more people that live in an area, the more anonymity you have. The fewer the people, the greater the tendency is for your neighbors to involve themselves in your business whether you’ve invited them to do so or not. This can be a small annoyance or it can be a huge problem depending on the rumors that get generated about you. For the most part these rumors are funny and provide you and your family with a source of amusement. Unfortunately, there are cases where rumors have been known to wreak havoc in people’s lives. For instance, the family who was investigated by child services based on the rumor that someone saw their young child walking alone down the country road has a pretty dim perspective on local rumors. Also having a dim view of local rumors are the small store owners who lost business because they had one customer who wouldn’t pay a bill and started a rumor that the owners cheated him to justify his actions to the community.

Keep in mind that people have problems here just like everywhere else; you will simply be changing one location and one lifestyle for another. You may have to plan your trips in advance to avoid running back into town for milk two days after you took your shopping trip and you will undoubtedly be the source of much speculation, if not the focus of a few rumors. However, friendships forged here are just as strong and lasting, and you may even get the chance to experience how a small community can really band together in time of need. Added to all the benefits of a slower paced lifestyle, fresh air, and more room to roam, this can all make country living a wonderful experience.
