Sorry for the dearth of posting lately.
I’ve had a long time dream of owning a decent sized piece of land in remote location for the triple purpose of: vacation camping spot, zombie apocalypse refuge and potential site for our retirement home.
I had a particular area of a particular state in mind and have been looking for a suitable location off and on for several years now.
The Wife had found four possibilities fairly close together so Last weekend we took a trip out there and had a look. One of them turned out to be pretty much just what we were looking for and since then we’ve been working on making that happen. It’s actually quite a bit smaller than we had in mind (16.4 acres rather than the 25 to 30 we were hoping for) but it’s laid out in a way that suits our purposes very well and there’s some additional land around it that may come up for sale at some point so we may be able to expand our holdings. Being smaller made it less expensive than what we were expecting to spend as well, so there’s that.
Anyway, since then we’ve been working feverishly on getting the money together and putting in an offer. Our offer was accepted, so now we’ve just got to get through all the closing stuff. If everything goes according to plan, the land should be ours in about a month. That’s what’s been occupying my spare time lately so I just haven’t had much time for blogging.
