I've drug my feet selling this for a long time...cause it's difficult for me to give up a location like this with two creeks on it. I must move on, however. http://boise.craigslist.org/reo/4458642494.html

That is truly beautiful and workable land. If it were only in Canada, I would find a way to make it happen.

Thanks. I'll likely shed a tear when it's a done deal. The gears of life have shifted though...and I'm traveling a road, without a map, to an unknown destination. Once that place presents itself though, I'll be glad to have the cash from that property.

Since posting, I have listed this property with an agency. The price has been reduced as well. http://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/Harris-Creek-Rd_Horseshoe-Bend_ID_83629_M11746-18489?source=web

I'll update my original post to reflect the change. (NOTE: appears there's a timeline for editing, AKA, I can't edit that post after all.)

Just thought I'd pass along that there has been a price drop on this land since posting.
 
please buy my thing and then I'll have more money:
