My family and I are planning our return to the US after living in South America for 7 years. We're thinking of going to the Oklahoma City area. We want 5+ acres, rural but close enough to get into town for restaurants, shopping, etc. After a few days of internet research, it seems like Cleveland county south and east of Norman looks about right.
We want as much freedom as possible. This includes farm animals, trailers, houses, tiny houses, RVs, hunting, fishing, off-grid living... we're very conservative and mainly want to be left alone by govco... as few permits, regulation, and restrictions as possible.
I also need reliable internet. Non-oversold 30 megabit over 4G is fine. But I'd prefer fiber.
Is that area a good area for what we want? Or should I be looking north (or some other direction) of OKC instead?
Realistically, what's the tornado threat?
We're planning a trip around December to see the area in person and maybe look at properties.
