    Just a little piece of property I am considering buying. Has about everything I need even a little landing strip should you need to drop in although I am more of a grass strip kind of guy and might have to pull a Harrison Ford on one of the fairways.

    Saving up my money only short about $249,999,995 right now. Maybe he would take a low ball offer. :)

    Would you be willing to consider an equal shares partnership? Then we would only have to raise about $249,999,990. See how much easier having a partner is? Takes it from impossible to definitely doable.

    Might work although I had my heart set on the whole 65000 acres I need my space but I suppose I could scrape by with 35000 acres.

    I am willing to go halfies with...... several hundred people... Absolutely beautiful area..!!!!

    "Pickens said he will only sell the ranch to a buyer who is committed to nature conservation" I hope this comes true.

    I am currently renovating my bathroom to look similar to this....

    Now wait just a minute here. If you think half of 65000 is 35000, then our partnership is off to a rough start. What are ya tryin to pull here? Why should you get an extra 2500 acres? Equal shares of the investment mean equal shares of the land!

    I could say it was a finders fee but really just bad math. Truth be told I am guessing with the shared spaces involved we might both have to settle for 30000ish acres. The hardship of it all.

    I have been going over my finances most of the night. I determined that this might be possible but we would need to haggle the price down a little.

    Like down to maybe $25,000 bucks.....

    If you're a customer coffee is free. If you're FAA S5.00 per cup Canadian style is the price. :devil:

    If you live for another 68 years that property would cost you $10’000 dollars for every day you live there.

    And that’s without MX.
