I ran across the Homestead Org site, which seems to have plenty of helpful information. For anyone still looking for property in a safe location, try checking out their rural real-estate section. Here's a description off their home page.
Have you ever dreamed of moving to the country, building a log cabin back in the woods, growing an organic garden, raising livestock, simplifying your life, working out of your home, and spending more quality time with your family? If any of the above applies to you, then you are a homesteader at heart, and you can't afford to be without the information you need to help make your dream come true! The Homestead.org Online Homesteading and Small Farming Resource
endeavors to provide you with that information.
Various resource pointers are used for the site, including links to other sites on the Internet, mailing addresses and
telephone numbers. Homestead.org also contains information in the form of a developing on-line "magazine", with articles,
pictures, hints and tips; hopefully a "search" function will be added eventually. It will be like a magazine and yellow pages
directory rolled into one, and it will hopefully be a general meeting place for rural folk on the Internet, where they can help
each other with problems and tell each other about their experiences.
