|Street sign at the corner of our 40 acre plot|
We have two plots: a 10-acre plot in the Antelope Acres ranch and a 40-acre plot in Sunset Ranches nearby.
The 10-acre plot has electricity available, and also gives us access to the Antelope Acres community well. We will likely only use that well water for livestock and gardening and have potable water trucked in from El Paso.
We haven't decided if we will live on the 10 acres or on the 40. We may give both locations a try for a while before we put down permanent roots.
We will be paying around $280/mo for land payments. Linda's Social Security will easily cover that. We can use the remainder of her payment for groceries. I will need to find a way to generate some additional income. I really want to avoid a J.O.B. if possible. I plan to use this blog to generate income from ad click-thrus, as well as producing some YouTube videos and monetizing that as well.
I've got a couple of years to figure this all out; I don't need to bring in much; just enough to pay for fuel, cell/internet service and feed for the animals we plan to raise.
