Thanks guys.

Looks like our offer on this latest place has been accepted. I wish it had some acreage attached to it, but it is located in an awesome little town near a great trout reservoir and a national forest. So camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, ATV trails and snow shoeing are all readily accessible from the area. It's not really well suited to full time living, but it's going to make an awesome getaway. We are getting it really cheap because it's a foreclosure. The note will be low enough that it will cost less per month than renting a similar cabin for a weekend.

It needs a few fixes, new appliances, new wood stove, a fence, carpet torn out and replaced with laminate flooring, and some cleanup in the yard. But it is going to be one heck of an awesome base camp and place to get away from the neighbors. There aren't any other residences withing a few hundred feet so we should be ok as far as neighbors are concerned.

If this appeals to you, I just read in the business section of the newspaper today that "second vacation homes" are the hottest things in the housing market right now.  Since people are having a hard time hanging on to their "first residence", those second vacation homes which are sometimes a little off the beaten path (even better 8)), are selling for a pittance compared to their real value.   Sounds like a dream come true to me :shrug:

People need to listen to me when I say something the FIRST time.......which reminds me; review my signature line :deadhorse:

Lol! Well as it turns out this is probably going to be more practical than moving everything to a new house. But I'll give you that, you called it! :D

I do have pictures, will upload them in a little bit.
