I have received a few emails from people, most having read about my most recent acquisiton of a new parcel of some 2.21 acres of land... It's strange, as many have requested me to become a "partner" in their wanting to acquire property for themselves, but on a much grander scale. Some, have their eye on 160 acre parcels, and others were looking to buy 200+ acres. Now, I don't know a lot about ranching or farming, and what is needed as far as acreage for doing what, with what. But, I do know it's not easy dealing with a large parcel or section of land, as it is say for only 10 acres or less. Even that can be an expensive proposition. If you have to secure the land, it's a real challenge. Not to mention IF you have larger sections of land, AND the taxes are quite a bit more. I also noted that the guberment has a nice little thing about any land over a certain amount of acreage, say 80 or more, that they can tell you what you can or can't do anymore, IF you are planning on planting crops? I can't imagine the hassles there! Anyway, a partnership has to be somethiung you'd really want and the other party you'd have to know is well above reproach. Or, you are going to get burned. One way or another, most end up in court. I can't for the life of me see whay any 1 person woud have the need for a huge amount of land, other than to just OWN it. If you are a rancher or a farmer, I can see the NEED. If you are a hunter or are making a hunting lodge or becoming a hunting guide, then yes, again there is a reason. But, why would anyone need that amount of land, that has NO intentions of doing anything with it other than to just have it. In a survival scenario, land and what it can produce would be king ( in my thinking) food and wildlife would be a necessity. Now that I can get behind. I can easily understand the concept, having hunted before. The more land you have, the more advantage you have to get game/food. But I see a drawback as to having to keep that land secure...It's not gonna be easy. In fact I can't see it being possible unless you have a slew of alarms, and ride fence all day, every day..... If you own a hundred acres or more, you can easily "get lost" by staying in the center of it and not having to worry about neighbors.... If you have a large family, or a bunch of friends, and maybe even be part of some group, then a larger piece of property would be better than not.... But, I can't see why single solitary people think they need such an expanse of land, just for the sake of having it.... What do I know?
