Before you do anything else you need to talk with Chisos Muse from this group. She and her fella Jon moved out there a few years back. She is one tough cookie and independant and her lesson is reality is the same where ever you are.
Some of the locals will have to weigh in, but areas of concern for families as I see them are education, health care, food availabilty, jobs, etc.
I hope Terlingua embraces insane women.

To say the least. If you are lined to do the move, what basic consideration would dicitate is to ponder your daughters interests, it will be very tough on them if they come from a very sociable,crowded,easy access to many amenities that you take for granted. Just let them know where you are heading,visit the area...thuroughly and make your call. Most of us here love the isolation, but i will be honest too, i for one still like to come back to some civilization of some sort. Chisos Muse can give you a hands on experience of the way of living in the area, and it's hardships.
