This post is mainly for Chris. It's my best friends farm in Somerset County, Pa. 200 wooded acres. Built in the 1850's. When adding the front porch the wood was so old and hard that sparks literally flew when we took the chain saw to it. His dad paid $2500 for it in 1955. Sigh. This is where we hunt when I'm "home". One night it was -17 outside and +17 inside. Never had to pee so bad in my life but no way was I trudging to the out house in four feet of snow. A lifetime of wonderful memories.

Man that looks nice! And enough land to go out and shoot on!

Looks like a nice little place.

Thanks Tom .......... love the look of that. The chimney is probably the most impressive feature.
Ahhhh 200 acres ......... sure wish I had that big of a chunk.
I know quite a bit of Somerset County ...... and there are a good many pretty large farms, often seen when biking. Many is the time I see one and think - ''hmmm - that'd be nice''.!! Same in my own county too of course.

Nice. I'll give him $2600 for it.

Yeah, already tried that. Pretty insensitive of him to ignore that big offer. Oh, and the gas company pays all his land taxes just for the right to drill his property. In fifty years they've not drilled one hole. Just wants the rights to it. Oh, and a lumber company comes through every five years, thins the trees and plops a big hunk of cash in his account. Oh, 150 acres are pure forest, 70 acres for winter oats to bring in the game, and the rest is cut grass and a large stocked pond. One hour from Seven Springs Ski Resort. Really, I'm so happy for him. Happy for my best friend who will inherit it all. Really, really, happy. God bless em all. Really.

I'm trying to think if there is anything that is keeping this from being the perfect setup for a gun nut..............................
