    This was supposed to be our hottest day of the year, so I don't mind the rain.

    It's storming here again. High winds, heavy rains, and thunder in the distance. Oh well, that's better than having the hottest day of summer. Ella may be unhappy with it, but I'm okay here.

    We are making an inquiry on some land in Winterville Plantation, Maine. Since we've lived in Maine, the property has had a "for sale" sign on it, and we have watched the house disintegrate. At this point, it is doubtful that the house is salvageable and the "for sale" sign fell down a couple of years ago. The owner lives in Florida and is behind on her taxes, so I am thinking she would be interested in selling it cheap. I am pretty sure we'd have have demolish the house, and I'd much rather do that than try to repair it anyhow, since I am not in the mood for a fix it job.

    The house is not something I want, but it comes with 10.5 acres of land, including waterfront along a river. Unlike our camp, it has utilities available and is close enough to a town that high-speed Internet is probably available there. If we were able to get it at a price that we can afford, we'd have the Amish build a small wood house for us, and place it on the foundation that the current house is on.

    With a new building, we would be downsizing from the big house we're in, but we could set it up the way we want it, and use wood heat. It's close enough to our land that we could get out there much more easily, and we could get the wood from our own land.

    The river connects a lake just to the south of it with another lake to the northeast, and with dozens of other lakes, including one in the town that our camp is in. If we were to get a boat, that would be enjoyable. I'm not going to get too excited because, for all I know, it's been for sale for so long because she wants a ridiculous amount of money for it.

    It sounds like a great find, but if she goes down in the asking price don't you think others will want it also?

    She's not actively trying to sell it at this point. The sign fell down years ago, and it's not listed with a realtor.

    Wow, that is an awesome find, @Ken Anderson ! It almost makes me want to move back into someplace that gets snow, to have a place with river frontage and close to lakes besides. I LOVE fishing, and this would be a fisherman's paradise, it sounds like.
    It is a whole lot closer to your property for sure, and if you have all of the utilities available to be connected again, plus good internet, that sounds like it would be an ideal situation for you and Michelle and the kitties.
    What would you do with the house where you live now once you move ?
