I fear my current job is at stake. If I lose my job, I don't really have anywhere to go. I have a wife and a 7 month old son. My wife's parents live in an extremely rural area of Missouri. I have been considering moving there and doing work for them in exchange for room & board for my family. My question is this:
Has anyone successfully moved a small family of 3 into a rural area and become self-sustaining? If so, please explain. I may pursue self-sustainability for myself and my family.
Note: The current social environment and stresses of trying to survive in this society is taking potentially catastrophic tolls on my psyche and my mental well-being.
EDIT: Moved to Survival, as the poster is specifically asking about living in a rural environment, off the land, etc.
