Damn that might be a great place to build a little "Container" house. Build a deck for the bus and just use it when not out on the road.

Wheels are a turning....

Re: 1974 Model 05 Silver Eagle

Are wells allowed in the area? I could care less about power. But when it comes to living in a rural setting, a safe, secure source of water is paramount to any land purchase.

Re: 1974 Model 05 Silver Eagle

Glad to see you made the trip to Roswell safe. It looks like you have a great setup. Will they let you build a berm? I would build a berm around the perimeter of the property. Maybe stick a few goats and chickens out there. Maybe get a thousand gallon water tank and fill it a hundred gallons at a time with your little truck. If you plant one tree, or haul one in of a good size, they would probably elect you mayor.

Re: 1974 Model 05 Silver Eagle

funny , nighbor who came over the olther day , has about 15 goats, and chickens. yea this is county property. you can do about anything here.long as it dose not create a danger to others. like a dilapitated trailer (talking house trailer 50n ft. etc) thats gutted open and ready to tip over, should be pretty fine. yes well i thing of planting a tree and using my grey water to water it. give it steriods

Chadluc, did you tow your pickup truck behind the bus? Is that a Ford Ranger?
