I live 15 miles west of the Atlantic shore in that in between area...too much pavement and WalMart-Home Depot-Publixs-CVSs to the east and empty wilderness to the west.
West of my neighborhood are cattle ranches, orange groves, sugar cane fields and a giant Lake -- Okeechobee -- it is 3 driving hours til you reach Sarasota or Tampa.
My neighbors are funny. They choose the edge of civilization where we have lots of green space but bit** because we have alligators, Raccoons, feral pigs, rattlesnakes, deer, rabbits, armadillos and the skankiest squirrels I have ever seen...doing what animals do...eat, sleep, poo, and eat your garden, etc... These folks need to move to apartment buildings in a city.
