Hey everybody. I'm new to this forum and I was wondering if I could get some help. I was looking for homestead information about several atates. Me and my fiancee will be moving west in a few years after marriage and school. We are looking at The entire midwest such from North Dakota south to Oklahoma and also possibly north Maine. We plan to travel to several states in the mean time to check-out possible areas during various seasons (winter, summer etc.). Since it will be about four or five years before we can move, we are using theinternet to get info but we figure a better source would be people in these areas. We currently live in central mississippi and I do some homesteading. Our main concerns are land prices and population. We would like to own about one hundred acres (hopefully more) and be in an area without many people. We already commute a long way to work and school so thats not a problem. We just want "elbow room". I have many questions and I hope that y'all can help in answering them. Thanks.
