About This Quiz

Country living isn't for everyone, but for those who love it, it's the only way to be - and when we say "country," we don't mean the suburbs. We mean the boondocks, where the nearest city over a few hundred thousand people is beyond commuting distance. We're talking flyover country: wilderness, parkland, and farms, all peppered with small towns (the ones that are really just villages with a slightly more aspirational name). Country living is about knowing your neighbors because if either of you needs help, they're the only ones who you can count on. It's about not putting on airs and graces or signing up for the rat race. It's about fresh air, fields of gold, and forests that reach the horizons.

Country girls know how to take care of themselves: they can change a tire, shoot a gun, and irrigate a field. They might never have a lot of money, but they don't care because that's not what country life is about. It's about inner-tubing on the river, gazing on constellations and knowing all their names, and sharing a frosty one at the local pub or bar at the end of a hard day's work. It's not needing to check your phone every five minutes because you know the world will keep turning whether you do or not - and you probably don't have reception half the time anyway. It's about growing your own fruit and veg, knowing that your dog is your bestie, and knowing that the only thing which might disturb your sleep is a rooster (or maybe a cicada). This quiz will figure out whether all this is truly you, or whether the bright lights over the horizon are secretly calling to you!
