Yeah they are in the sticks. I went there once and that was a drive.
We are 1 mile from Eastern Michigan University. We are 5 miles from the University of Michigan. We are 2 miles from the intersection of I-94 and US-23. We are in the middle of the busiest street in Washtenaw County.
So, it may be a long drive from wherever you live. (in a house, huh?) But to characterize it as "in the sticks" is grossly misleading.
