    You all may remember I live in the middle of nowhere - it's true. But I'm looking to move even further out into the middle of nowhere. I've got my eye on a beautiful piece of property that's about 1/4 mile off a one lane gravel road. It's an entire 50 acre mature hardwood holler with a stand of about 5 acres of mature white pine. It also has a large spring fed creek flowing through it. Wife and I went to go look at it and fell in love. There is one way in and one way out. I asked my wife how she would like walking a 1/4 mile every day to check the mail box "she said if I had to walk through this, I would absolutely love that". :) I put in a bid, and am looking into what isineeded for an easment, wish me luck!

    Is there a house? You have said you want to live in such a "nowhere, wooded, quiet" place. Maybe this has been calling you?

    Is it ALL wooded? Where would you garden?

    Most importantly, can you get internet????? :lol:

    Sounds good. That's a lot of work cut the trees and make the garden. Would be satisfactory though

    Yes -- but really wanted to know if we were being "divorced" in his move to "nowhere". :lol: You know, no power, no electric and all that...

    No phones, no lights, no motor cars,
    not a single luxury;
    like Robinson Crusoe,
    it's primitive as can be.



    And just argh! That started going through my head and won't stop
