Chris, congratulations on your baby.
Sorry I won’t be able to make it to Argos. This job has me chained to a post. I spent 15 years on the road and, this arrangement really gripes me.
I finally got some good news on my property in Oregon. I unloaded it. I was afraid that I would never be able to sell my tweaker magnet. I had 10 acres on the Coquille river 3 miles outside of Myrtle Point. I thought that I was far enough outside of town. Not true. Everything got ruined or stolen. I had a friend living there to watch and take care of everything.
He got ripped off for everything. I close escrow June 6.
I have to roll the money over right away. I found 16 acres that isn’t that far from town but, it is secluded and you can’t see the building pad from the street. There are a couple of springs and, a creek. Don’t know just how seasonal they are.
You can’t build until you get a Geo report. You can’t get a Geo report unless you buy first. 4—6 months wait on the report.
I may have bought a 16 acre campsite but, that is Ok. The place is over run with deer and elk so, it is full of bears. Bears aren’t as bad as the mountain lions in the area. They will stalk you at any time. I need to keep my Winchester lever action handy until I have a better idea about the critters. (45-70)
The area is woods with 1 cleared pad. Both the pad and the road need work so, I bought a Cat dozer. BIG toy.
I have to get the road graded and gravelled before level-4 fire season.
Now, I have a new, big project to suck up the money.
