Thanks for the tips. The land is unfenced. I kind of like this fact since there is nothing man made as far as the eye can see in any direction. But as I mentioned in the original post I believe the cattle range on so much land that over grazing is not an issue.

This parcel has many natural hills and valleys as well as washes from rain.

Nearly the entire surrounding area for hundreds of thousands of acres is owned/grazed by the largest cattle ranch in North America. This means cattle have free range of this parcel but I think there is so much land they access that I believe overgrazing is not a problem but I'm not sure. For the dozen or so times I've been out there I have never seen a cow anywhere.

Thank you in advance!

It's certainly refreshing to hear about the zoning differences in the state of Arizona. I'm going to look into that as I would love to learn more. I'm very curious if this is adaptable to all counties, lot size, etc. How fascinating!
Cory Collins wrote:A previous article posted in this forum talks about a recent bill passed in Washington state legalizing human composting—also known as “liquid cremation.” According to e article the process turns human remains into soil. It may be a bit uncomfortable, but I'd love to hear more about the actual process of human composting if Elizabeth knows about it.

I think you are in the wrong place.
Kickstarter = I wanna do a thing and need money
reverse kickstarter = I want a thing done and will put up money
Plus, this thread (and this forum) is for stuff at wheaton labs. Those pics are clearly from someplace else.

I have some land in the mountains of Wyoming where I am planning to build a Hogan someday. I think a hogan built from 8 to 10 ft logs would be fairly easy to build and could be expanded by building hogans next to each other to form any number of interesting geometric patterns.
Here is a demonstration hogan that was built at a university in Colorado. I believe that it has since been destroyed to make way for student housing. Too bad, I would have loved to tour it.
