Pondering an interesting idea, if I had the money for it.

So I guess it would be a dream, a huge, probably not reasonable one at that. But hear me out. I like looking at farm properties for sale, hoping that in the future, I have money to buy one and retire. I'm looking at a few right now, and came across 2 of them. They're not farm land, but rather grazing allotments for cattle. But who says you couldn't stake out some trails and take horses through them? The price is reasonable for both allotments. Total purchase price for the 2 of them is $398,000 for a total of 100,884 acres of land. Wow huh? Imagine having all that land to yourself, that you could do anything you wanted, provided that it met with the standards that they request. If you wanted to herd cattle all day, you could. But me, I'd run a business out of there. If I couldn't build a home, I'd at least park a mobile home on the land somewhere, and figure out how to run it off the grid, so I'd be following their protocols. What do you think? Am I dreaming far too much? That is a lot of land to get lost in.

Oh come on, of course you're not dreaming too much! If you just hear my dreams, probably you will think I am crazy. But I won't stop, I'm working just too hard to get what I want and I don't care how difficult would be, I won't give up. You should do the same, your dream is quite simple compared with mine, so it can be easier for you, it's all needed a bit of hard work. Don't give up and keep dreaming!

Even if this dream doesn't come true, I will still have other options, so I will continue to dream.

It is a huge amount of land and the dream is huge as well. I hope you can find a way to do it.

I would love to find a way, now to come up with it. It's all about saving the money and trying to get enough together to do so.

Dream as much as you can. They say dreaming so much doesn't cost any penny. Having a dream like that gives you a motivation on what you really want in your life. I do have a dream also of having a farm or a resort and makes me happy if I make plans although there is no assurance when can I have it.

When I was in high school, this was already a dream of mine. I was in grade 10, that was about 17 years ago. I saw myself running a farm in 5 years time, but it never happened. It didn't stop the dream though. A few years ago I was looking into another venture, but the only thing stopping me was my credit. I could have gotten a loan to get a property, but it just wasn't going to happen. The dream, so many years later is still alive, and becoming more of a reality as long as I'm able to save money to do so.
