I have not been here for long, but from what I can tell, a lot of the stuff is very spread out, making it harder to run errands. By car, it is a very short drive to a bigger city with more stores, but here, things are not really walking distance to each other. It is a friendly town because everybody does smile when you walk past the people here are easy to talk to as well. There is a lot of places to work in this town as well.
