That's a complete misconception to call St. Marys "wide open plains".  St. Marys is in one of most atypically hilly and wooded places of Kansas.

I was going to mention that. People have the misconception that Kansas is flat prairie all the way across. The eastern third has hills and woods all over the place.

There are a couple of TLM communities near Tulsa, OK: Clear Creek Abbey and Most Precious Blood in Tulsa (FSSP) http://www.mpbptulsa.com. Depending on where you look in the rural area around Tulsa and how far you're willing to drive, you can find land pretty cheap.

There is a FSSP parish in rural Edmond/Deer Creek area OK as well (Oklahoma City metro). http://www.saintdamiens.org The church is surrounded by crop fields and is directly adjacent to an old Catholic pioneer cemetery. Land in Deer Creek itself can be expensive, but is less expensive farther north. There are more trees in the Tulsa area though.

You should definitely consider coming to Cullman County Alabama. We have the following:

Christ the King Monastery which has daily TLM mass.

Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament

Ave Maria Grotto

St Bernard’s Abbey (Benedictine Monastery)

Cullman county is very rural and the city of Cullman is a nice small town with all the amenities. Very hilly land. Lots of farms. There is also a Mennonite population that has lots of good hand made wooden craft items.

You are also a short interstate drive away from Huntsville, Al which has Our Lady Help of Christians. It is a personal parish that only offers TLM and all sacraments according to the 1962 missal.

North Alabama is a great place to be trad.

I did not know that.  I just assumed it was typical Kansas.  It's on my places to visit list, so I'll check it out.

I'm retired at 55 y/o and I'm in pretty good shape.  I have a modest but ok pension I'm living off of and have good credit.  I'm thinking of moving to a rural location where I can raise some chickens, maybe a goat or two for milk, and have access to decent deer hunting land. 

I want to find a house with a few acres that aren't too pricey near a Church with regular Latin Masses.  I'm looking at southern states like the Carolinas, Tennessee, Kentucky or maybe even the Ozarks in Missouri or Arkansas.  It seems Latin Masses are few and far between in these areas. 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Salem, SD (about 45 minutes outside of Sioux Falls) has a diocesan parish which has a TLM every Sunday and many Holy Days. Even their NO Masses are done reverently (ad orientem, no altar girls, etc).
