Yeah, that's an issue. No gaming store, no college campus, no friendly local retailer, and if none of the people you work with/engage in other extracurriculars with want to try it out, you're boned.
There are some online resources. Forum play by post RPGs, chatrooms, and the like. There are also a couple of programs which are basically glorified dice macros rammed together with a chat interface (sometimes they include basic mapping functions) you could use if you already have people interested and the only real problem is distance. Maybe even guild members from an MMO if you're short on real people. I'm not a huge fan of online RP...it can be fun sometimes but it'll never match the tabletop experience. But hey, if its your only option.
