New To Radio / Lone Star Greetings

Just thought I'd introduce myself.  The name is PJ and I only recently got interested in emergency communications.  I live in the Houston area but I've got a place in the middle of nowhere where cellphones only occasionally work.  After a little research, I settled on ham as my choice.  As a first step, I needed to get my license so I went ahead and got my extra.  Overkill, I know, but I was testing at NASA so had to keep up with Jones's.   ::)
Now to learn something about it!  Unfortunately, I don't know anyone into amateur radio so I'm picking up what I can.  I'm mostly interested in regional comms preferably without relying on repeaters, satellites, etc.  Power won't be critical so I'm planning on staying with phone or, should I say, not learning Morse.   ;)
Looks like this is going to be a great place to get answers to the questions I don't even know yet!
