Making a conscious decision about moving to a rural area

One of the many side effects of the pandemic was city people bugging out, moving to the country.

Since many people started working remotely, it didn't matter that you were hours away from the office.

A new video documentary series that started as a campaign to boost one county--Otter Tail, in Minnesota--became a bit more, exploring the reasons why people seek out a rural lifestyle, and some things they need to consider before committing.

The series is called Rural By Choice, and it can be viewed several places online. Erik Osberg, the Rural Rebound Initiative Coordinator of Otter Tail County, is our guest.
