Ok, sitting here at the office nearly bored out of my skull...thought I would give a shout out.

I've been homeless since March 30 2017 when I sold my home. Just yesterday morning I bought 5.6 acres of land not too far out of town and plan to build something to retire in. Thinking a metal pole barn/building with living quarters in the back...40'x60' w/attached awning to park the race rig under.



Picked up a couple of toys to keep me occupied the remainder of my years... two 1965 El Caminos.









Hope to have the building completed by mid-year so I can get back to some semblance of normalcy. I won't have any high speed internet out there...maybe some kind of dish thing. Hope all have a great year ahead!

Heya Rick
Whats the landscape like on yer 5.6 acres? Looks to be green and fairly level. Nice place to be at peace, away from pesky neighbors. We've been thinking of selling and picking up a few acres of Agriculture land to raise our Danes and run our breeding business. We got about three years left before we retire ourselves.
Happy New Year

No pictures of the site yet, but yeah fairly secluded without feeling you are super isolated. Looking forward to spending my time doing other things for sure.
