How well do you know the area? Do you know your prospective nieghbors? One of the nightmares about what you are doing is too move in, spend money getting the place in order and finding out that your nieghbors are a bunch of jerks.
Also, contact the county commissioners and find out if there are any proposals for new roads in the area. You might want to find out also if there are any hog confinement operations planned for your general vacinity. And by that I mean within a three mile radius. That smell travels a long way. Kansas is the land of feed lots for cattle, any of those in or planned in your area?
I had to run electric just about as far as you do. Cost me $473.00 for the line and a pole with 200A box and a light. The co-op had a program that gave me back $350 for not missing a payment in the first 2 years. We bought our 350 gallon propane tank for $350.00.
Last, get county map and drive all the roads in a five mile or so area around the place, if you have not done so already.
Good luck, if it works out you are in for a wonderful, and hard adventure.
