Be sure to check zoning rules! They stung a guy on another forum with drainage and setbacks for egress.
Sounds like you are going to have a lot of fun.

I don't know when we'll be able to go camping again...

Please get prices for the well before you start, that sounds cheap for the well. They wanted a lot more then that west of CO Springs in 1971 or 1972. Good Luck

The well price really depends on where. Here it was $15 a foot and a 100 foot well was common, but we have decent soil here with loose rocks. It's also been a minute since I had one quoted.

Depending on how inclined you are to doing your own work, there are ways to cut a lot of the costs down for your utilities.

This guys website Michael Davis Publishing - Mike's World. contains a bunch of walkthoughs on how he built his own solar panels, charge controllers, wind turbines, a gassifier and a host of other crap to be off the grid for cheap.
There's no use crying over spilled milk, unless it's on your keyboard.

I'm of the mind set to keep it "camping style" as SKnight stated ! If I want to just buy a cabin in the mts, well you get the point. Again those are nice luxuries to have but there still a lil something to roughing it if you can call it that! I plan on doing everything myself and hopefully pull the trigger next winter. Truly the land it's self is my motivation to get away from the city and enjoy Gods country. We are a youngish family starting to make memories for our little ones, two girls! Like minded people get it, some say I'm nuts ( maybe true) but I've been called worse.
Sorry for the rant, thanks for everyone insight.
