I would have to look at a map see what is nearby ...

Have you ever been to the Ozark area? ..

Some of these areas maybe far from everything ......so driving to and from work maybe wayyyyyy out there! and your kids may hate ya for it lol!

lots of twist and turn roads. what highway is nearby how close is the biggest town?

both are within driving distance to Springfield, Ashgrove about 30 minutes and Elkland about 45 to 50 minutes. Ashgrove is a small town But has some stores and services. Elkland is just spot in the road that has a sign saying "Elkland". Both are nice places Elkland being a little more remote but not bad.

I have some relatives that used to live in Elkland--it is very remote, so if you are seeking seclusion and quiet, this is the place. I always thought it was fun to visit, even when I was a kid.
I also worked with a manager who lived in Ash Grove, very happy with the country life out there as well. He did admit that the commute got old from time to time, but wouldn't give up living there for anything

Default Ash Grove & Walnut Grove

I've spent some time out there...it's a nice small town type living...I had a friend who bought a house right in town and loves it. The locals all were asking about the new gal that bought the old Claxton place...you know... but if you're friendly and put up some boundaries, you'll be fine.

Willard isn't far...and it's one of the nicest small towns I've ever found.

If you want a slightly bigger town you should put Ozark on your list as well.
