Well I thought I was done adding things to the place! The neibor decided to move and is selling me the 20 acres behind the barn. So it looks like I will be putting up 4,000 ft more of fence befor winter sets in. More pasture for the Cows in the spring. Might get a little help driving in the 400 steel stakes and setting all the corners tho my shoulders are not as good as they were doing the other miles of fence on the place, burning out in my old age!

Mark, if I was going to do any fencing with T-posts, I would wait until the spring thaw to pound them in. At least around here, the ground is like concrete now..... But about mid-March most posts will go in deep enough in about 3 hits with the post pounder unless you hit rock. I hate to work harder than I have to!

Now that you remind me the ground is harder right now and the early spring is the best time for holes and driving stakes in! Mark H.

don,t think i,ll have that problem 20 acres around my place would cost me at least 6 to 7 hundred thousand and i don,t plan on having that kind of money any time soon ,and if i did i think i would move to a more remote place with just a touch less snow in the winter to deal with.

I hope to get this land for $12,000.00 or I will pass on it. Lota places around me for sale after the big fire. Scared off some of the folks because of it. That will give me 60 acers and I have 40 more behind me I want when the time is right to buy it and make it a even 100. There was a time I thought 5 acres was a big place? It seems the place gets smaller over time and you want more buffer to call your own. Mark H.

yup i know what you mean about a buffer, but my shoulders aren,t getting any younger either and when i pound in posts they remind me , set this place up when i was just turin 30 had a good back then ,now im gettin older abd back is had it , so im trying to make it more easy to keep up so this time when i fix something it stays fixed caused in another 10 years i won,t want to be tryin to fix things again. good luck on the land trhough hope you can get it for what you want,way shelby is going with her herd your gonna need more lane haha.

Calling the Real Estate guy out today to walk the line, make the offer and see what happens. After it is is writing he only has to say yes or no. If yes we start the fence right away. Mark H.
