I live in Kansas right now, near Wichita. I am beginning my electrician's apprenticeship and dreaming of buying property, and I am thinking Missouri might have what I like. I would love to have 80+++ acres with lots of timber with a good creek/stream/river , electricity available from the utility co, and most important: a reasonable commute to work as a journeyman electrician ( 30 minutes or less would be great ). About 2000 an acre sounds like my upper limit.

I was thinking maybe there are some power generating plants or other facilities that need electrical maintenance away from the bigger cities where land could be purchased affordably nearby?

That is about my ideal scenario; I would love to have room to shoot guns into a hillside, ride ATVs, etc. I don't need an existing home.

Any tradesman or tradeswomen own property and commute to work? Is my price-point doable or am I dreaming?
