Well its official.
We now own land!!
We have lived at our house on Peebly now for almost 15 years. We had 10 acres. Five that we mow and live on and the other five wooded. We made trails for the four wheelers etc and have been happy all this time.
A few months ago Mickey made a comment about how nice it would be to own more of the woods behind us. I said sure and shrugged and we went about our lives. Well....as fate would have it, we received a letter in the mail just a couple of weeks later from a realtor. The letter stated that 40 acres was for sale and it just so happened to adjoin our property as well as a few of our neighbors and some other folks to the West. The price..something we could not afford in our wildest dreams.
But the flame was ignited. And it burned hopes and dreams in our souls.
We, or I mean Mickey, counter offered a much lower price. Very much lower. Less than half of what they wanted. There was no way they would except such a ridiculous amount.
So we did.
And our whole world has changed forever. We now have 50 acres to build our dreams and also memories for our grandchildren. Plenty to do for years and years to come...
We have started by clearing a road around the whole property so we can ride four wheelers or just go for walks...The trails will be meandering and hopefully look like they have been there forever..
(Not our field. Our wooded land in the background.)
|And luckier still that Mickey knows exactly what he is doing. (Cedar tree)|
This particular area we have cleared for camping...
In the meantime the trails continue.
We are enjoying it.
