Reader Doug Mitchell shared another rural advantage:
OK, Des Moines is not exactly rural…but it is compared to where I come from in Southern CA. So my slightly “rural” advantage is that it’s much easier to connect with the proper network one needs to get things done. Granted the network is much smaller…but that’s the beauty of it. I’d rather navigate a small but powerful rural network than what I had to deal with before (seemingly millions of people that didn’t care much about what I was doing).
