Well, now that sounds like an adventure and a half! I wish you well with this and look forward to hearing about it as you pack, repack, toss out, retrieve...
Before I retired, I was open to anything from somewhere in Saskatchewan to TX, from Oklahoma to the Pacific Ocean. I "looked" at one place in MT that had a cabin _ on it. It was surrounded by tribal land, had, I think, some services. Figured I'd feel bad living on what I thought should probably be tribal land. Never saw it in person but did think about it. Then there was the 2k acre ranch with a 2k grazing allotment. I was in love with that place or at least the idea of that place. I never looked for the house on line. It could have been a tent. I didn't care. Figured I could afford 2 of the 12 monthly payments a year if I didn't eat. You've gotten a lot further than I did!
I ended up moving out to 10 acres with well, septic, house, electricity. (It was a 2000 acre move with a 3/4 ton Dodge pulling a car hauler with my ancient half ton Ford on it; moving company to abuse my household possessions, and a great horse transport outfit to bring my horse. And yes, the departure kept getting post-poned. I had to get here before the horse did 'though.
What's your drop dead date?
Now -- My biggest conundrum is getting contractors to do what I want once I make up my mind what that is. With our housing booming here, that's interesting. So what can I do? I can fuss over what equipment I want and how I'm going to store it.
Here in the states, I'd caution to check your zoning. In my "rural subdivision" although it was platted before our land use laws were in place, you cannot live in an RV or travel trailer. At least you are not supposed to. You might get a variance but you have X amount of time to put in a septic (does your land pass a perk test?) and well. And start to build. I found lots of surprises when I started looking in to how to situate anything I added. You could use this winter to explore anything of this that you haven't already checked.
This sounds like fun (for you --- I've had my fun with moving). I worked packing and dumping stuff for at least a year before I moved. It was still a mess. So never mind if it is not until next summer --- start now.
Great idea to keep a log and neat of you to share it here.
