Finding interested gamers in rural parts of the US close enough to play face to face RPG's is difficult if not nigh impossible. By interested gamers I am referring to people (with or without previous RPG experience) actively looking to play. This means you will have to take embark on the risky affair of asking people, who have never considered RPG's as a source of entertainment, to play. Risky because it will feel like high school dating all over again and you will most likely face a consistent stream of rejection.
But you will have to go to any lengths to succeed. And this means sticking your neck out.
