I went looking at some small land parcels today, and found a couple of promising places for a cheaply owned BOL. I can pay cash and then put down a prefab cabin in a few months. The area in which I found these places is about a 90 minute drive from where I currently reside. As I was driving home, the thought of how I would keep my BOL and its associated stockpile safe from theft occurred to me. The only reasonable thing I could think of was burial; possibly digging a hole, lining it with plastic sheeting, dropping in a section of culvert pipe, then putting in my stuff and covering it up. As for the cabin, probably just installing an extra hasp on the door and boarding up the windows. Where this location is, it's mostly good-natured people like all of us here, but there's always that outside chance, especially since I'm not going to be living there, and possibly moving farther away in a couple years. Just wanted to see what everyone thinks. The parcel I have made up my mind about is really great. 4.2 acres of hardwood forest with a small pond, bordered on two sides by national forest. Only drawback is that it's directly on a two-lane blacktop with a fair share of traffic, but it's cheap and the dollar is deciding how far I can go with this.
