If you look at the video in the Dallas Morning News article, it really is an "Oasis in the Panhandle." I would hate to pay the water bill.

Being in the Panhandle does make it an oasis, as it is surrounded by land that is much less productive.

If it were in the middle of the rainforest, it would not be an oasis.

Im just a few pennies short myself... maybe you and I could go in together and pick the place up...

You can keep the main lodge.. I'll just take the chapel and sleep in there (I need all the help I can get anyway..)...

:D

$1000 in Bitcoins when they first started would have netted you today almost the asking price. I missed the boat.

your not kidding we havent had any moisture in 2 months. Some years we have tons of rain though, last spring and early fall we had more than we knew what to do with. It's all gone now though
Did you not get any of those ten inches of snow last week? I've heard there was a helluva blizzard. My brother is in central AL, and they had to shut down the roads.

Nope, I think we’re at something like 68 days with no moisture.

We had a 10000 acres go up for auction here in Kansas several years ago. The guy that won the bid didn't have the funds. Anyway he was a big shot for a few days.

Mr Pickens was a quail hunter and new early on the birds needed grass and insects to multiply and thrive. So apparently he chose an area for the ranch that had healthy water table. He developed an extensive water system throughout the ranch just for the quails....

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
