I've been interested in moving to somewhere in the Ozarks or Appalachia for a while now so this looks like my first good opportunity. I'm from a rural area and I'd like to continue to live a quiet, secluded life in a beautiful natural area, which Arkansas seems great for. I'd like to buy a house on 20-40 acres and my budget is about $150,000. Would that be possible?

I know I'm from California but I don't want that to come off the wrong way. I'm from a rural, conservative area where we grew up hunting, fishing, and four wheeling. I have no interest in malls or museums or fine dining. I've visited rural Virginia before and liked it very much.

Will I be judged at all for moving from California if I mind my own business? How is the cost of living there? How is the humidity and weather in general in NW Arkansas? The market for buying larger acreages (20-40 acres)?

😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 are you ashamed of non -rural CA? It sounds like you don't want to even be associated with anything that isn't 'country.'
