The virtues of Paulina

Ever considered living way out there, out in – no, we won’t say the middle of nowhere – in a really low-population place? Far from the crowds? Really far?

Check out the piece on Paulina today in the Bend Bulletin, and you can start to imagine what it’s like (if not necessarily yourself doing it). Nearest substantial community: Prineville, about an hour away. (It’s way up in the Ochoco Mountains on the Beaver River.) If that gives you the itch to learn more, check out the community’s web site (technically, the local store’s, but there’s not much difference).

(We are based in a small town, Carlton. But there are close to 2,000 people in it; it’s about six miles from a city of 30,000; and an hour from Portland. Small, rural, but not remote. Paulina is remote . . .)
