I have generalized partial complex epilepsy which not only includes tonic colonic (grand-mal/fits/convulsions) I also have absence (petit mal) seizures and moments of either an altered sense of reality or an uncommonly enhanced perceptions of the truths of reality (joke).
While the tonic colonic are controlled via medications, I still get my 'moments' which can last 1 second to a minute. Most often its only a second or two, but the states appear to have no wiggle room for a driver who might lapse for a second or two.
So I am left with either getting married to someone who can drive (seriously not a good reason for marriage) or I have to come up with a novel way to get to and from town from my 'remote base of operations' or homestead.
Our current society has developed the means for a person to be remote and still connect to the internet and order things online - I just got a few items from Wal-Mart last month, and was surprised to have the UPS guy at my door with a rake, shovel and 50' long garden hose. I have yet to try it with groceries.
While its now possible to actually live a distance away from a town, the idea of being stranded there isn't a happy one. So I'm thinking I might get myself a horse or two and live within riding distance of a town/small city.

You would be surprised at how long a tomato vine will continue to give you tasty fruits as long as you can keep the temps in the range they can endure.
