Haha!! Just from your description of the community you live in, I already knew what area of the country you where in. Hubby and I moved from North Central KY a few months ago and it was exactly like that!! In fact, your description of the area and distance from larger towns sounds a lot like where we moved from.
Sorry, just wanted to post that. I don't have any advice for you, as we are still new to poly as well.
