How is life in Northern Washington by the Vancouver Border? Is it very rural with low crime?

This is the Washington forum and Vancouver I'm refering to is in Canada but the area I seek is the northern part of Washington by the Canadian border.

I work for a major utility company so I see the whole county. Personally, I like the Custer area, it has a very rural feel, while being relatively close to all the creature comforts. There are many that don't like the area, but I for one enjoy it, you do have to be a little pickier about where you live out there tho, like anywhere it has its nice parts and its shadier/dumpier areas.

Why is it that many don't like that area?
Where is it you want to live there and not live and why? Crime? Burglaries?

I've never felt uncomfortable in Custer when I've been there, not like the Maple Falls, Kendall area. It's very rural with not a lot there.

That's what I'm looking for a rural area don't really care to have neighbors or not just a getaway from traffic, crime and over crowdness.

I have heard of Maple Falls and that was one of the places to avoid.
