It seems like finding what I am looking for will not be too difficult. Am I wrong?

Also, as far as getting around the backwoods in Maine if we went that route, I actually planned for that- I was pretty serious about Maine before doubting the cost of living there and other issues. I bought a 2000 Ford Excursion, v10 4x4. This was to have the highest towing capacity of an SUV in order to move my shop on a trailer when we move, as well as having a good 4x4 truck to get around the back country in inclement weather. I'm sure it would come in handy in KY as well.
I was doing some research on South Central KY and came across this one and thought I'd post it as another example of what is out there if you don't need to live too close to a larger town and don't mind an old house that may need some work. Houses like this rarely sell for the asking price. It's safe to say you could probably knock off a few thousand.
