I'd like some advice from fellow preppers.
Background: After reading more and more here and on other sites my awareness increased and it came to a point were I understood living in an urban environment wasn't the optimal situation for my family. Our living situation was a nice apartment in a major city in Sweden. We had also felt for a long time that moving outside the city would benefit our young children. So just recently we sold our apartment.
Problem: now we have about 3 months to find a new home. So what I need advice on is what are important things to consider when looking. We just recently found a nice property about 30 min by car outside of the city. As it is Sweden is very lightly populated and already a small distance from the city you are basically in the country side. The property is only about 1 acre. It has a nice house with a wood stove that can heat the whole house. There is a well and the water supply and quality is good. There is also a small patch (about 100sqm) of gardening that has high fencing to prevent deers from entering. The draw backs as I see it is that the land is a bit small and that it's farther to school and work then before. The commute isn't that big of a problem for us as is now but we are worried that increased gas prices will make this a problem later on. Also we will be far from self sufficient so we will still highly depend on the services from the city. Such as food, gas, electricity etc.
What do you think, does this sound like a potential good starting point or should we keep shopping around? I'd also be interested in hearing peoples takes on being far from services that you are in need of and the potential problem of very high gas costs that could severely reduce your mobility.
