Less bills and mo money.... :p
Hhmmm . . . Just doing the math in my head but if you wait 5 years and the price of that acreage goes up by $1,000 per acre you will have $40,000 less money. Then of course if it's the property that you really like do you think your the only one that likes it and it will be sitting there waiting on you?

Ian,
Good diet news, sad vision news. I can surely sympathize with the prospect of having to learn to shoot from the wrong side. For the several months that I was forced to do so, I had to completely cover my dominate eye, or it would try to force itself onto the sights. My brain has so many other disabilities and shortcomings that that was just too much to overcome. I wish you the best.

Waco,
Interest rates are as low as I've seen them in my adult lifetime. Shop your local banks, you might be pleasantly surprised. I've never been in a position to have to, but re-financing your home may be a way to payoff outstanding debt and buy the property. Where there's a will, there's a way.
Back in '95, my wife and I paid $25,000 for 2 acres of Western Montana property, and thought it was a bargain.
You'd need to kill a lot of deer and elk, to feed those 40 archers.
I hope you can swing it.

I'm paying taxes on an appraised value of $26,500 per acre, seven miles from city limits and the land is rocky hills covered in cedar trees in a semi-arid climate with the nearest live water over a mile away. Low-life trailer trash of all races for neighbors. My parents bought this property for $150/acre in 1971 and the only thing that our tax dollars have improved in all that time is the county road got paved about 20 years ago and several new schools have been built.
Jeez louise, why do you stay? And you can't even go ice fishing!

Charge the archers rent? At 2K per year each you are good after just one year.

If it helps with bills I will give you a year of free membership here.

I love all of the Pacific Northwest. For many years southern Oregon was my retirement destination but by the time I could retire the entire west coast was off my radar.

But then he gets closer to fiver and that is about like Portland.
Found out yesterday that Fiver, too, is plagued with tour busses filled with Chinese tourists. Still, there are areas of Idaho that call to my soul.

Make sure you are not landlocked if the National Forest decides to close roads through "their" lands. That was a problem under previous administrations.
Don't wait, they aren't making any more land and prices are not getting cheaper.

Spent 6-12 in the ER last nite. Gall bladder will come out. 3 doses of morphine for the pain. At least everything else is working right. She tried to take me but pain was too bad so called the EMT. Not too bad this morning - I can somewhat function.
I shouldn't of teased Ian about food - karma.

I feel your pain, I went in at 6 am. Christmas Eve '19 and had my gangrenous gall bladder out by noon. They got it before it burst and were able to take it laparoscopically. Mostly healed now.
Don't delay, get it before it bursts and they have to gut you like a fish to clean up the mess.

My wife and I have dental cleaning appointments, this morning, then we'll be loading the motorhome for a six-day get-away. For the last many years, except last year, we leave town during Independence Day week. Illegal fireworks make Duke's life miserable and interrupt our sleep, and then there is the flood of the much despised tourists.
While all that is going on, we'll be relaxing in the peace and quiet of rolling, oak studded hills only 7-miles from our home. No wi-fi, but I might be keeping up to date via my phone, though it's something I've never done.

yep 3 little laser cuts and it's out quick and clean.
of course then you have to eat some kind of weird diet much like a cow or goat to not cause yourself more aggravation.

Actually they told me to take it easy on fats for a while, that my body would adjust in 6-8 weeks and I would be back to normal. We mostly eat a low fat diet due to my wife's cardiac issues, and I never missed a beat.
My digestion if much better than before, almost never reach for the Rolaids now, even when we went out for Mexican before the lockdown.

Moved all of Paul’s 22, 6mm, 7mm, and 30 cal jacketed bullets out. They are going, along with the 358,9mm, and 45 cal cast bullets to a good friend of his who he has been shooting with for about 50 years.

Getting ready to leave and Dawn asks what all the dirt by the front window is. Holy crap, we got a digger of some kind. I would say woodchuck. Way too much for any gopher type critter. I would say a good 4-5 5 gallon buckets of dirt and rock have been excavated.
Pest control has been contacted, being in the city makes trapping it ourselves a bit tricky.
