Finally a couple of pics of the BARGAIN 220 acres for $80,000.  Still, unbelievable.  Anyway, I took these by holding my camera out the window, without looking into the viewfinder and got lucky on two shots by getting a fairly decent pic.  I'm fairly certain they did get river frontage as part of their parcel, as the bottomland where the trees begin is where the river flows, as it curves around the then goes under the road about 0.5 mi. further down the road.  They got a steal.

If you are passing through this area, I can drive you around and show you a number of places where we have seen no activity in years and many are off the beaten track.  Many homesteads in this area have a spring--otherwise they would not have been able to homestead, as electricity came to this are relatively late.

Wow! beautiful. So, with 220 acres, surely some of them would be hilltops...
(Wouldn't want to build down in the river area.)
sounds so good...

Another thought about buying rural, apparently abandoned or unused property...

If you find something you really love, and have checked with the Recorder of Deeds to find owner's contact info., you may really luck out if contact with the owner tells you that he has no interest in living there and none in the future, and might even entertain the idea of selling it. 

If this particular property really resonates with you, offer a "land contract" where the owner/seller "holds paper", selling the farm/property to you "on contract" for a specified time, and at a specified rate of interest, specified payment amount, etc.   There is nothing dishonest about this setup, as many people have bought homes and farms in this manner. 

If you are able to buy a really nice property with little or no down payment, consider the future, especially if the owner lives on a coast, or in an area that you feel is totally dangerous.  You may find yourself owning a lovely property, mortgaged to the hilt, but with no mortgage holder to be found after a major Earth-changes event.  Sounds morbid, but it is food for thought.

Thanks for sharing your ideas...

Found this in my folder for PXTH, but can't recall how old it is.  Here it is anyway, as property doesn't always sell fast, so it may still be available.

Driving home from St. Louis the other day and noticed Washington County State Park, one of the many nice state parks around here, and realized the issue of camping in the parks is food for thought.  Wash. Co. park rents kayaks for the many floaters and has other amenities.

Well, if you suddenly discover you must leave your area quickly and have no destination plan, but it's either leave or die, then how about heading for a state park?  Most of them allow camping, and some even have cabins and lodges.  There may be a time when the park might not be attended, and you would have your choice of campsites.  All of the parks that I know of have at least primitive or not-so-primitive showers, plus potable water, assuming there is electricity for pumping.

And don't forget federal parks and forests.  Some also have camp sites, and cabins.  It may be wise to investigate what is close to you if you think you may need their services some day, and don't forget to check elevation.

This is a good concept... For sure, campgrounds would be safer than a lot of city areas...

Saw this ad in our local electric co-op paper:
"Abandoned farm with private lake.  Rolling wooded hills, prairie, scenic views, rural water, power & access to 450-acre private lake.  Was $46,000, now $29,900.
Four Rivers Realty 1-866-407-6653.  www.lakesundown.com

I know nothing about it, but thought I'd pass it on.  Sounds good, but one never knows.  The "farm" might be 2 acres, which would be grossly overpriced if you ask this chick.

Note from Yowbarb: eBay seems to be a dud tonight. Something must be wonky with the search function, unless all the land got sold off. Precious little being displayed. Will try that later. Meanwhile: LandWatch
...

https://www.landwatch.com/Tennessee_land_for_sale/Cumberland_Gap

CUMBERLAND GAP, CLAIBORNE COUNTY, EASTERN, TENNESSEE LAND FOR SALE:  1 - 15 of 26 listings

A piece of the Tennessee mountains is now available in the Cumberland Gap area. 13.5(+/-) acres of mountainous land with a beautiful year-round creek, Keg Creek, flowing constantly over small water falls. From every area of this property the creek can be heard. At the very top you could achieve panoramic views of the beautiful country side. There is a single wide mobile home on the property that no value has been given, however it maybe can be restored and made habitable. Two other shed like buildings are also on the property. The best part is the wondering trails, some of which are for off-road vehicles, while others are used by wildlife in the area. While this may be a nice retreat from the busy world we live in it is close to conveniences. Lincoln Memorial University is in nearby Harrogate along with moderate amenities. From there just to the north is Middleborough, KY that is less than 30 minutes away with most of today's modern conveniences for shopping and restaurants. This property is worth seeing. Four-wheeled vehicles with the capability of off road driving will make the driveway climb okay. Otherwise, park at the bottom and enjoy a little hike. ...

There is one about 5 miles from us and has frontage on Brushy Creek, plus two springs, as well as a pond--all of this is written just from memory, as I drove by the handmade sign in the front yard of the farmhouse, and this is the first time in decades there has been a "For Sale" sign on this property.  I do believe it has been in that family for generations.

The property is 143 acres, but does not give a price.  I will stop by there asap and take a pic of the sign which sums up the property.  Apparently no realtor is involved and maybe this will be like that one a few miles in the other direction which was $80,000 for 220 acres.  Sign to follow...

As always, check to make sure no fracking wells nearby...
