Just for the heck of it, you might check out property in far SW Virginia. Someplace convenient to Wytheville. Good club there (Wilderness Road Muzzleloaders) and there are places between there and Bristol where you could find your little piece of heaven.

Kind of a contrast between GA, ID. Grew up here in ID and spent a lot f time in GA. Obviously I'm prejudice but I would point you toward living in Idaho. From deserts to mountains. Hot Summers and cold Winters, we've got heaven, in my humble opinion. I'm shore everyone else feels the same about their home.
Not sure what you'll find here but here is a link to a place that I look up when searching for property. Good luck, sounds like you want to live my dream.

I'm a Ga native born and bred and only immigrated to Va. 8 or so years ago. I lived in Ga for 62 years and that's what I was accustomed to. Except for the mountains, Ga only has three seasons: summer, almost summer and spring. Even in the piedmont (middle region) of N.E. Ga., I've hunted in 80 degree late Novembers. There are occasional freezes or ice storms but about all year is t-shirt weather. Go down to South Ga. and it is jungle. The heat, humidity, bugs, thigh thick diamondbacks, big gators, wild hogs, bear and deer. I loved it but my wife had enough so we came to Va. There, you can be all alone and isolated and still be only 25 miles from a small town. Just gotta learn to love the gator swamps.

forgot to mention but we are moving to Maine. Now, nobody lives in Maine so wherever you are in Maine, you are isolated. But HECK! No diamondbacks, gators, hogs, bugs 'cept flies and cold winters. Ga. is much more buggier than Florida and you have to experience it to understand just how bad it can be. In other words, all the fun is taken out. And in Ga. you will immediately become familiar with fire ants.

So I highly recommend Ga. as a place to "get away to".

I've thought about this sort of thing much myself over the years. Unfortunately, my wife wants the convenience of a nearby town. Oh well, I think that we all have to make some compromises in life.

Actually, there are plenty of places where you can go "off grid" to live. Although I don't see your connection between two southern States and Idaho.

Anyway, my personal first consideration is politics. I won't live in any State that puts serious restrictions on the 2nd Amendment. Next is taxes and cost of living. They eliminate several States from my list. After that I would consider the weather. Now that I'm old I no longer like a lot of snow and cold. Fairly good hunting and fishing are also on my list of requirements.

I have a few other things on my personal list of criteria, but you have to come up with your own list of what is important to you. Then, go there and make a good scout before you decide on any final action.

It takes quite a lot of research to do it right.


Know what you believe in. Fight for your beliefs. Never compromise away your rights.

Galen check out central PA. Sproul State Forest in the middle of the state is one of the biggest wilderness areas east of the Missisippi.

I live in Vassalboro and have a camp in Sebec. The Ancient Ones Site is in Canton. All three areas are rural without being totally remote. The further North you go the properties get cheaper and employment gets harder to find.
