I especially appreciate the info of a person recently on the ground: I hadn't even considered Pontiac Ridge, but now I won't. I wonder if any of those folks are white supremacists besides. I keep hearing that's an issue with WA, but it seems to be in or coming from the East.
I particularly liked what you wrote in one of your other threads, that people often only post their land for sale locally b/c it excludes speculators and developers lured by the internet. I've found ok things online but it's true, the best land I've seen has been in-person. Your explanation is a good hypothesis for why one needs to be in the thick of it.
I'll keep mining your links for info, especially as the move date comes closer. I too plan to document and share my experience exhaustively here; there can never be too many detailed narratives, because every situation, property, and person is going to be different.
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes; art is knowing which ones to keep. Keep this tiny ad:
