Camping on your land BEFORE you build is a great idea, you can’t tell how things work out until you have been there, preferably for 4 full seasons, when we first moved to our off grid place, we were surprised at the winds, specifically the direction it blew, where I came from, summer the wind blew from the south, winter the wind blew from the north, now where I live, it’s completely different, we get mostly westerly winds, and occasionally it blows from the east (usually indicating a change in the weather). Fortunately it didn’t affect how we built our place, but things like water run off during heavy rains and such do make a difference as to where you will want to build.
