We live in Silver Springs, NV, 70 miles South East of Reno. We are 1 mile north of the Carson River and 7 miles south of Lake Lahontan. We have 5 acres which we use about 4 of. We presently have 9 chickens, 9 goats, 3 feral cats and 1 bee hive. I have a large garden with 16 raised beds and we have lots of flower beds throughout the property, and we have 9 fruit trees. We stay quite busy caring for it all.

It is 25 miles to the nearest super market, we have a Dollar General in town but I do not shop there as they charge to much because they are close to the lake. We also have a Family Dollar, Subway and Pizza Factory; they are 10 miles from our ranch/farm.
.

I'm not losing weight...I'm getting rid of it! I have not intention of finding it again!

Where I live-I live 11.5 miles from the town of Melstone 4 miles south of US highway 12. And this year they are rebuilding the highway. They have taken down all mile marker posts, street signs, reflectors and any other landmarks to tell where my road is. Came home in the dark Tuesday night and missed the road. Have a contractor coming to look at the house for repairs Monday and I can't even give him directions because the road construction changes daily. Staying home and out of it.

I can do it with your help!

I live in Divide, MT. We have a post office, a Grange hall, a small school for the little kids, and a fishing outfitter
Butte is 25 miles away, and Anaconda is 33 miles away. Those are my choices for groceries, medical care, or household shopping.
If I want to buy clothes or anything else, I am in a triangle of being about the same distance from Missoula, Helena, or Bozeman (about 90 minutes)
The nearest gas station is only 20 miles away, though, so we consider ourselves very lucky.

I actually live in a town about 30 miles from our county seat of Malta, on the Hi-Line of Montana. Our town does have a grocery store, one bar, and a cafe (that's the business district). A couple of miles out of town is an agri-business center which sells feed, seed, fertilizer, chemical, lumber, auto and machinery parts, and hardware.

There is also a post office and a k-12 school. No service station, but there is self service fuel available with a credit card. Four churches, but no resident pastors at this time.

My dentist is 30 miles away, the medical services I use are 45 miles and anything serious usually gets taken care of in the larger facilities in Billings or Great Falls, MT, both about 230 miles away.

If I go about three blocks in any direction, I am out of town.

I live 11 miles outside Melstone, Montana. I am 45 miles from Roundup, MT and 90 miles from Billings MT. Billings MT is the largest city in Montana with a population a little over 100,000. Melstone has a population of 96 in town, 500 if you include the surrounding ranches the town services. One gas station, one general store, 3 churches, one bar/cafe and a school K-12 with approximately 80 students.

I can do it with your help!
