What does the term “rural” mean to you? Here in the Unique Drain & Septic office, it is instantly associated with septic systems. That’s what we do here, make septic treatments, so of course when working I associate those two. However, when I make my commute home, “rural” no longer means onsite wastewater. It means a dirt driveway and feeding my sheep. It means cutting trees on the weekend and digging our own ditches. “Rural” is so much more than a particular distance from the grocery store or how far away your neighbors are.
For some people, “rural” might be the suburbs and some backyard chickens. For others, it might be self-reliance in a yurt built off-grid. For yet others, it might mean earning a living farming or ranching. Rural might even be more lifestyle than location.
Our vision for this blog is to start exploring the “rural” in all its forms. We (mostly Josh) have written a lot of info about septic system care and function. All of that is very important, and as topics or questions come up, we will continue to write about it. However, we also want to expand our horizons with this blog. Our goal is to make it more engaging and honestly, more entertaining! Together with you, we plan to embark on an explorative voyage where we hope to bring in more voices, write on more topics, and have some fun. We are looking forward to this evolution of our blog, and we hope you will join us along the way!
