Swanton is a nice area. I've got some good friends from our 4x4 club there. I, however, am at the opposite end of Lucas County, a bit east of FrogTown. It's very rural out my way too. It's nice out here too, if you like fishing and water sports fun between races!! (I'm a car/racing nut myself)
A bit of advice though, unless you already know, keep an eye on elevations to ensure they don't hide the possible facts that the places you look at may flood often. Especially near the lake where I am.
Sucks to need to carry flood insurance.
