    Sad!

    To everything there is a season. Some of us reached out and never heard back.

    Back into my bunker.

    I stop in once in a while. But it just does "Not" offer what I need/desire in a forum. All the forums "Suck" now. Buggyout' glad to hear you found a place.

    I've noticed the lots of lurkers. If they have a question, join and ask it. Many of them will be a value added either by their knowledge or their questions. It's sad.
    There is a tremendous library of information here once one goes past registror. ;)

    I've never been a fan of "bugging in" or "bugging out." We aren't urban or suburban types; so. bugging in was out. Too many 4 legged critters and those that slither here to bug out. In addition, the blood sucking insects here are both numerous and nasty.
    There are 2 year round springs on the property.

    We started with a Rockwood 29'-6" camper and next was a cabin. Finally, we added an over 1000 sq-ft addition. As the various map sites are 3 years out of date; no pictures of the addition.
    No neighbors within 3/4 of a mile and the nearest town is 21 miles. There is a lake with fish and a trout stream nearby.

    Buggy, it is a damn shame about this site and its lack of activity.

    I loved the place. I really did.

    Unfortunately, it was right next to a potential long term mining operation that not only would have taken a lot of the surrounding forest down, but day and night drilling, explosives, and heavy duty trucks.

    Serious?

    The sellers never mentioned anything about it. Thank the Lord for due diligence.

    I moved on....

    Flash forward almost a year and I have purchased a GREAT property! I won't get too far into the where, what and how, needless to say, it came together rightly with everything I wanted:

    Forest, mountains, sea with plenty of garden space away from people! PERFECT.

    I've never been an advocate of "bugging in", but enjoying castling up in my place!

    Whew! What a long road.

    I drove out to the property again on Saturday. I parked on the road got out and took everything again in. The place reminds me of Alaska in a lot of ways: Totally wilderness, not just "country". Maybe the lack of people, lay of the land? Not sure. It's my jam, that I can tell you!

    I should have gotten a photo of the gate. It's heavy duty, automatic with a sign that reads: "Can you outrun German Sheppards?" or some such. Probably a quarter mile to the "house" and another quarter to the shop/barn.

    I don't suppose the crackhead population thrives out there. Too far from civilization. HOWEVER, I wouldn't put it past some gimped out person to be walking down the road 70 miles in! LOL!

    Round #3!

    Well, as I explained in another post, I am looking at 60 acres...Well... This:

    "I think I have finally settled into a place. It's 60 acres butted up against 1,724,229 acres of national forest and DNR land! It's an hour and a half away from ANY size "town" and hours and hours from any city!. Nearest human neighbor is 9 miles away. Lake, river, mountain, forest and stream! It's completely off-grid fully powered by hydro, battery bank, back up generator. It's a 4 bedroom 2.5 bath main house, a massive shop and 3 stall mule barn WITH a 1 bedroom ADU that I am going to airbnb hunters and fishermen during season. Wildlife is crazy: Deer, bear, cats, elk! I'm going to put a large greenhouse in and grow hippy veggies then sell to soul-less millennials!"

    I'm going to leave out the specific location. Some of you can probably guess by seeing the lay of the land and such. I can tell you that you drive to one of our tiny little mountain logging towns, head north-east for 30 miles to the middle of freaking NOWHERE, then turn another 8 miles or so to the real freaking middle of nowhere.

    I drove out there, serious, when I got out of my truck, all I could hear was the wind blowing through the trees and branches creaking.

    PERFECT.......

    I feel pretty good about things! I've already been pricing mules and learning what it takes to rent them out. It was suggested that I start guiding. I am involved in a few veteran hunt organizations. From what I can tell, it's a lot of work and I'm not sure I have the skills or motivation for that.

    I'll throw in a few pictures of the ADU and shop/ban! The ADU is nice. I already have a dozen guys wanting to rent it! LOL! Also a picture of my favorite place on earth! Maybe two! :)
