I am confident you can live on less than 1000 dollars a month. You will have to scrimp and save where you can but living is pretty cheap here in Missouri. I like Lawrence county about 20 miles west of Springfield. Nothing to do here but rural country but I like that. The lakes are close enough, we have an awesome civil war battlefield called Wilsons Creek.

The gun laws, yeah baby, I like the gun laws. You want to carry a gun, slip one in your purse or pants and head out the door no ccw required. Just be aware some places do not allow guns so be cautious where you carry a gun.

I hope you like armadillos horning in to everything. I hate them creatures.

Honestly, the area is totally depressing. If you have anything going for you at all, youíll probably fall into despair because there is limited opportunity for personal growth and new experiences. Itís easier to enjoy personal privacy in a large cosmopolitan area than in a decaying rural area. Once you move here, youíll find it very hard to escape because youíll fall behind financially due to stagnant real estate prices. Forget about capital gains and quality construction of homes. Youíll spend a fortune upgrading and repairing your house. Most homes have bad crawl space foundations that fill with water, resulting in high humidity and mold problems year round. Itís disgusting. The natives here are used to it, but itís awful. And the sun rarely shines. There is no good reason to move here, not even to die.

I disagree with Nfaulkos, There are some depressing areas of Missouri however it is what you make of it. I bought a fixer upper and I am going to make at least 25% when I sell and I have lived here 8 years. I think it is a great place to live cheaply and people leave you alone. I would never get a shared well, I have one and it is a pain in the ass.

But you can pain the asses anywhere right Nfaulkos?
