    so y'all get internet out there ?
    how big is your island, and are there any other properties like yours around for sale that you know of ?

    i dont know say 10 or 20 acres with a half build house or something of sorts,

    and… how much money would it take to get something like y'all's ?

    one more thing, you said something about firewood, do you cut wood for fire stove on your land or do your import it ?

    We had a impeller break apart (18' open bow Chaparral boat) while on a lake leaving us floating helpless. You can't just walk home if a boat breaks down. Can't imagine having a technical difficulty in the rough open waters. I traded that boat for a atv. So far so good with our Polar atv cart. Nice wide stance. I've had loads just flip to the side and dump with another brand cart.
