    I FINALLY got the property purchased last Friday that I've had under contract since 6/6/17. What an interesting voyage that was.

    Anyway, I wouldn't mind splitting it with another aviator. I'm visualizing the agreement as being a 50% stake in the LLC that owns the airfield (FLIB Field & Farm LLC) plus outright ownership of somewhere between 5 and 7 acres upon which to build a hangar/home combo. That's what I'm visualizing but I'd be open to discuss other sense making options.

    The property is located less than 2 miles outside of Conway, Mo, a town that doesn't have much to offer except a nice little grocery store and a post office. It's only 15 minutes from Lebanon, a town of over 20,000 with Lowe's and WallyWorld and most necessities. It's only 30 minutes from Springfield, a town that I've always referred to as "being big enough to have all you need and all you want to do but small enough that it doesn't (yet) have all the big city BS problems."

    https://www.google.com/maps/place/37°31'14.4"N+92°49'07.1"W/@37.5206792,-92.8208157,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m6!3m5!1s0x0:0x0!7e2!8m2!3d37.5206748!4d-92.8186268

    The price will be 50% of what I paid for the property plus 50% of the cost of building the runway (yet to be determined). The 2000' runway as depicted on the attached will be very economical to construct. The field is very flat (no undulations) with about 50' of drop N to S. Alternately, if the runway was laid out centered on the black dashed lie, it would be about 2,300' but that would involve some tree removal and a bit of grading. Still quite do-able and relatively economical though.

    If the purchaser's preferred building site is close enough to my planned development (lot 3) the the well, drive and/or electrical costs could also be split.

    The lots depicted on the attached was just me playing around with seeing how many 5 acre (+-) lots could be developed with runway frontage.

    If interested then please send me a PM and I will provided further details.

    So instead of "Gaston's" each year, we show up for "Winters"?

    Too late! Already named..."FLIB Field." ;)

    Runner up was "Objectionable."

    Oh, yeah, that's the main line twixt Tulsa and St. Louis. Best I can tell from researching on the internet, it carries somewhere between 12 and 18 trains/day.

    I'm used to living near tracks though. I grew up near one and live near one now. They quickly become background noise that you don't even notice. This was attested to with this track also...when I was first looking at the property I visited almost every neighbor with 1/2 mile or so to check out "the flavor" of the neighborhood. I asked each one of them how many trains the track carried per day. The unanimous answer was "I don't know, I don't even notice them anymore." Hence the reason I had to research it on the internet.

    BTW...had a local sign shop make up custom logos for me to put on my equipment, etc. First thing I bought was a dump truck. I thought they did a helluva job. I gave them this photo to use as the starting point:

    CAK.jpg

    Here's what they came up with for the dump truck door logos:

    Truck Lettering V3.png

    All the artwork (it went thru 3 iterations before I approved it), plus (2) 26" x 16" vinyl signs for the truck doors...the total?...a whopping $80. I've used this sign shop for a long time and love these guys!

    The signs/logos are just the black outline, they just threw the red into the artwork to represent the truck's door color.

    Wow, and here I thought the guy cutting the vinyl at the sign shop was just a f*** up when he screwed up one of the two truck logos. Didn't know he was clairvoyant. ;)

    Before, the mistake was simply funny. Now it's absolutely hilarious.

    I would happily buy lot#3, if it were about a 1,000 miles closer to me.

    And when one will need to regularly mow 5 acres or so, one must have the right equipment.

    Picked this up today:

    6'-1” cut, 14 MPH.

    @weilke
    You do the math...

    I didn’t know Bush Hog made zero turns, I like their stuff. I bought a new zero turn last year. If I’d known about the Bush Hog brand, I probably gone with that. They also make really good rotary mowers.

    Same for me, I can’t initiate a conversation with you. I figured that was intentional though!
