We are once again a land baron :)

OK….seems that a bunch of boondockers, nomads, off-gridders have chosen Apache County in Arizona as their place of choice.  The main reason is zoning laws are substantially more lax than where I was located in Yavapai County, primarily run by Californians who left California to get away from that system, only to bring their idiocy to Arizona.  Cochise County is even more lax, but the land down there is primarily creosote which I grew up with in El Paso and hated it then.

My parcel in Yavapai was 8 acres, the new parcel in Concho is 36+ acres with an “awesome” view and the surveyor said, “You can almost see New Mexico from there”.  Most of the property is level with the last 1/4 or so sloping down into a valley.  From that part of the property you can see the local valley to the east, a larger valley (Windsor) to the NE, and to the south, you can see the White Mountains in the distance. As the surveyor said, “awesome”.

The property came with a trailer that was bought new and parked there in 1996 and was obviously abandoned years ago.  The rats and weather have pretty much destroyed it, but then no value was placed on it regarding the purchase price.  It also has a nice little shed with a 300-gallon water tank, a Weber grill, and miscellaneous.

I will be improving the driveway so a CONEX can be delivered as well as to make it easier for guests to access the property.

Keep tuned!!

We Did It! Seligman, AZ Property

Previously posted about the pending purchase, well, on October the 13th the closing took place so I am now a landowner in greater Yavapai County in the State of Arizona.

More details, etc. as we have a chance to check out the property and see what it has to offer.

We are becoming a land baron :)

OK, not really, but we are purchasing land in AZ as an off-grid property.

The land is mid-way between Williams and Kingman in the Seligman area.  From the I-40 exit, it is only 5 miles into the property so pretty convenient.  The location has cell signal service from all carriers, but maybe only 2-3 bars without a special antenna or booster.

The land has an arroyo running through it, more or less splitting the property.  The land is primarily juniper trees.

When I was looking at the property, I noticed a jackrabbit alongside the road.  He first did the “freeze, you don’t see me” thing, and then when I was there for a couple of minutes he looked at me, scratched his cheek, and hung out until I started moving again.  Even then he hopped off, not at breakneck rabbit speed.

There is access to a community well so I will be hauling in potable water which for now, will be stored in food-grade IBC totes.

We will be allowing boondocking, moochdocking, etc. on the property with approval. The property will allow you a safe place to park off-highway that isn’t trashed, with no traffic noise, but still having cell service.

We will be at the location multiple times in the coming months to mark the boundaries, create a path into the area where I intend to camp. hauling water, and working on erosion control.
