My wife and I have gotten ourselves moved to a rural area in southeast Texas. Now we have to get the water, power and sewer hooked up.
One of the issues with moving to a rural area is you have to figure just about everything out for yourself. The power and phone companies will take care of their end, but you still have to get the septic tanks and field lines put down, and you have to get someone to drill the water well.
Living in a city is easy. To get the water turned on just called the water district and get them to turn on the water.
