    The only folks I ever met who could make that house payment were ex-wives!

    You know, depending on what tools come with the shop, that may be a decent deal. Not something I could afford, but there is a lot thrown in there. Some one will buy it!! Jim.

    And note it says "in sight of I-86". Which to me means it is "in sound" of it as well. The train tracks near my house are bad enough, I don't think I'd want the rumble of a highway.

    And what's with the "5 gypsy style camping wagons" ? He doesn't actually say they rent them out, but what else is the point? Running a campground type operation is a hole mess of work, and you are seriously tied down. No weekends away during the summer.

    Jay,

    I know where that town is (Friendship, NY). If you look halfway between Buffalo and Rochester and then down almost to the PA line. It is in the Allegany foot hills. Nice little country town.

    Just a little out of my price range (choke, choke, cough, laugh! ) Actually, based on the woodworking demographics that you found, it looks like its out of most woodworkers price range

    Actually that's not such a bad deal - 26 acres (just a little over $25K per acre), ponds, house, shop, all that equipment (indoor and outdoor). There are 1-acre lots here in Rio Rancho going for more per acre than this parcel, and then you have to build the house!!...and shop!! Try buying that in the Houston area...or Southern California...or Florida...or Bucks County, PA. You'll pay twice or more for the same setup.

    LOML and I couldn't afford it, but there are those who certainly could...wish I was one of them.

    25k per acre ........thank goodness for the sticks! if a person heads toward the flatlands and gets on the fringe of the ozarks land can still be had for around 500 an acre in 30-40 acre tracts.....no cities or this ol` boy
