I do agree with that. 😊 What part of Kentucky do you live?

Well, as long as we’ve Ben posting here, and I never knew.


Your not a small business owner. Your a stay at home mom trapped in a pyramid scheme.

I got a letter today in the mail. It was from a real estate broker. He said there was a 75.99 acre parcel near me that had just been listed. They said he wanted $99,000 for it. Out of curiosity I looked at his website to view it. Although their map didn't show the property boundaries it did have a dot on the map. That site is mostly near vertical cliffs and rock slides. No place on it to build. I think it must be an old patient mine claim from the 1800's. It said good deer, elk, and bighorn sheep hunting. Wrong in so many ways. And it said you could mine gold. True but the nuggets are exactly laying on the surface. You can bet that the old timers picked it over pretty darn well. But for the low price of $99,000 you can own 75 acres of steep rock.

Could be handy for end times. Is there an old mine shaft to hide in, or do you have to make your own?

Most of this was placer mined down along the river so shafts are pretty rare. I do however know where there are several up on the BLM miles from anything.

While we are on the subject of land for sale, does anyone know anybody that buys land to run cattle on that didn’t get a start with family land or equipment? I’m talking about someone with no cattle experience or background and an average job that goes out and buys 300-400 or more acres, cows, equipment, etc and really tries to make it work? Maybe some on this board have? I really don’t know of anyone with no previous help or background doing this, it’s a little scary for the cattle biz long term.
I know of one but he has been scraping since high school. About 35 now has around 400 mommas. Real good guy. I know of several that did it with grain.
