    Wow Greg. I missed this somehow.

    CONGRATS MAN!!!

    That is awesome. I'm the kinda guy who smothers in a subdivision, so I've absolutely loved living on our place the last two years. Social distancing is pretty easy on 120 acres. LOL

    Hope you have some great hunts out there buddy. Turkey season starts here 4/18.

    Keep us up to date.

    Thanks Heath. Once I kick this Covid-19 crap, yes I got the beer virus, I'll get back on it.

    I had a pretty good flow of work going but have been shut down the last 2 weeks. Feeling better and according to the info my doctor has shared if I'm fever free for 1 more day I can re-enter society, or what's left of it.

    My son hasn't been able to come home for over 2 weeks already. Miss him.

    But the side effect of not being able to do anything has got me having bad thoughts of what else I can do out there.

    Here is a sample of my bad idea.


    I have the perfect natural spot for something like this. A natural dam with a second natural spillover that rejoins the creek further down. And it's only about 100 feet from the power lines for grid tie in.

    Also this has got me thinking too.


    If I made a very large one I could conceivably pump enough water up the hill to use a pelton wheel to generate power as well. Not enough elevation change in my creek for one.

    Just crazy thoughts of a sick person who's going stir crazy at the moment.

    Dang Greg.... Sorry to hear you caught the 'ol "rona" virus buddy. Hang in there. Get better. Praying for you.

    I bet Zane (hope I didn't screw up his name) is loving the land..... Great place for a young man to run wild.

    Yeah 3 days after the national emergency was called I was required to go to a customers site in New Jersey right by Newark. I didn't want to go, tried to get out of it, there were meetings and I ended up having to go.

    Was there less than 24 hours before Jersey called in the National Guard at which point all 9 of us on site said "hell with this we're leaving". Lucky me I was the only person to come down with it.

    And you got Zanes name right. Now just need to get the boy home so we can go out there and enjoy the place.

    Nice score, get well. If we ever take a long vacation will want to come visit looks rustic.

    Thanks Russ. And you're welcome any time.

    It is rustic and there's lots to do out there. Some restoration, some demolition.

    Nice Greg! Two of my favorite foods.......... Wild turkey and deer.

    You can eat like a king with those running around out there.

    I’d never go in the house. Stove, fridge and microwave would round out the necessities.

    LOL

    Need to show my wife this next time she complains my garage is too big. She might just tell me I’m welcome to live in it though...

    Forgot to mention I have a minifridge for the required brewed beverages to complete shop projects. No stove or microwave, however, I do have the camper in there with enough room to open the slides..... so I could always use camper kitchen if needed.

    Haha that's who my quote is from. Pretty much the same except for size. And my doors are on the other wall from yours. 1 14 x 10 and 2 10 x 8 rollup doors. So 50 wide 40 deep.

    My site would be too crowded with anything bigger. Pretty hilly overall.
