Had an opportunity to get out of Dodge for a few days!
Hidden treasures in Nevada!
My buddy offered to sell an acre to me,hummm.
He bought 40 acres with Ponderosa pine,pinion pine,a 7 ft waterfall with a creek.
Tempting to say the least.
Maybe go off grid,totally! Lol

That looks pretty but dry. Does he have a spring? What would you do for water on your acre?

In a heartbeat!
So beautiful ... and secluded. Good luck on the decision. You know where I would lean.

If you do, at least make sure its an acre on the edge of the plot.
If it's not then accessing your land may become troublesome.
*If you buy an acre
on the inside of his land
your next investment might be
a bag of feathers...

If i bought an acre,i have one picked out if the price is right.
On the acre,the water has alum,brackish.
Use it for everything but drinking.
This is at the edge of the 40,a BLM road runs thru it that BLM mai tains because the majority of the land was a state camp site,15 yrs ago,so theres many flat areas for cabins,trailers,tents.
One of the sites he showed me was by the creek ,enormous pines,shade,water rushing by and easy access.
I know what he paid for it and I do have a limit,hopefully we'll reach a price.
He and I have played music in two bands, for 15 yrs,we know each other pretty well.
I could probably get an eternal payment plan but i doubt id need to do that.
Its fun thinking about it even! Lol

I'd try to get two acres. I don't think one would be enough if I'm going for seclusion and off the grid.
