Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Do I get a nice fishing pond and trails to ride fourwheelers on? No brainer.

The big house in the middle of nowhere probably won't have cell/internet/cable service.

Apartment.

Tiny house in the middle of nowhere. But with internet, of course!

Forced to pick, I would opt for the tiny apartment. I know 95% of my friends would say "middle of nowhere", but about 95% of that 95% would freak out of if it were truly in the "middle of nowhere". When they hear "middle of nowhere" they are thinking 25 miles outside of the city, but on a huge lot of land.

My brother lives out in the country. As beautiful as it is, it would drive me crazy not being within a short drive of a store.

As long as woot still ships to the location, big house in the middle of nowhere. Also, would require internets. Seriously, I really need my internets. In the middle of nowhere, I could set up a still, too!

Can I have a medium sized condo/house/apartment about half way between the big city and middle of no where? Best of both worlds and a better school system?

I own that house it a all brick 3 br ranch on 3/4 of an acre.

Not big enough for a pond but a great place to live.

I bought it 10 years ago hoping to sell and move into a nice small place in a few years but then the bottom fell out of everything.

I should have bought a smaller place at 100 Grand Bar

Grew up in nowhere. Nowhere gets boring real fast. Live in the city, rent a car and go visit nowhere when you need to get out of the city.

Never underestimate the ability to get anything you want without having to drive 30 minutes to walmart.

Wasn't sure if you meant what you have or what you want. I have the big house, I would prefer the tiny apartment; however, I have internet so...it's all good.

As far away from people (general public) as possible please. I'd even take a small house on, say, 400 acres vs a big one.

We live in the middle of five rugged wooded rocky acres located 10 miles from the center of a resort town of 50,000 population. The town is midway between San Antonio and Austin so we have the best of all worlds. Unfortunately we are getting old which will force moving to town in a few years.

A large house in the middle of nowhere with a secret tunnel that takes me immediately to the heart of the city. In other words, Wayne Manor.

Why not a small house in the middle of nowhere? Big houses take too much upkeep, and what do I need all that space for?

I need lots of land, though, to insulate me from annoying neighbors. Ah, peace and quiet!

In my 20's I had an appt. in the center of town, partied every night. In my 30's I had small children so a house close to shopping and amenities. In my 40's expanded the house to keep up with the kids and friends.
In my 50's the kids went to college and the large house seemed very empty. In my 60's sold the big house in the best neighborhood and bought 3 acres of redwoods in the mountains and build a smaller "adult" home with home theater, sewing room, game room and ONE guest bedroom.....

Apartment.



That is what Exede and DirecTV are for.

I left a condo in a master planned community for a house with acreage 15 minutes from "civilization". It's wonderful hearing crickets and coyotes instead of honking horns, neighbors fighting, and all of the other BS that comes from living so close to ohters with no concern for you.

I've got the best of both. Good size house in the very middle of of a big, historic city. Parks a few blocks away, 30-minute walk to work on tree-lined streets past 19th-century houses, no need for a car (have car share program), 15 minute walk to the orchestra or theatre, great bars and restaurants all over the place, world-class museums in walking distance, friends nearby.

And while you're mowing your lawn, I'm doing a quick 15-mile bike ride along the river through the park. Good cities are the absolute best.

15 minutes away from the city is not what this is about. It would be pretty hard to get electronics up since there probably won't be access to power in the middle of nowhere.
