Mossyrock is a bit out there - I only vaguely remember driving through there many, many times throughout the years.
I have family/old family friends in Napavine/Winlock/Evaline, and used to be fairly familiar with the area.
Of course this was back when the local dairy was still running and you could stop by a house on the highway there and get a flat or two of eggs from these folks that had a ton of chickens, and my grandma knew at least half the people we came across in the library/grocery store/bank, but still. I think if you can find affordable land, that area would still be doable, especially since you aren't so concerned with whatever politics may be going on in the school districts from year to year. I can still find my way around there though, but things have changed a little. Not so many people are involved in the grange, plus whatever laws/regulations the state/feds have passed have a tendency to put the old-school things like that dairy out of business.
