Proud owner of a brand new diesel

Lot's of stuff going on. Got the ground cleared for the rv park and have started a LLC - "Million Pines RV Park and Campground". My first major purchase was a brand new Kubota L3400 with front end loader, back hoe and rotary mower. I fell like a kid at Christmas. I don't have internet, tv and the air has been out for a week and I'm loving it.

Here is the new Kubota.

Good for you!

It is damn hard to find decent, well kept small time RV parks anymore.

That has been a dream of mine for many years. We have looked into buying acreage down here, what to do, etc... To start it up. But the "good old boy" Florida politicians are pushing out trailers and even RV's out any way they can. They find so many ways to make it impossible to happen or create a new tax... We just gave up on it.

How big is the plot? Are you keeping it natural, clear cutting or other? Full hook ups, pull throughs, 30 or 50 amp service, primitive camping sites, etc...

This is a good place to start advertising!

Total area where I am setting up is 150 acres. I've got enough space cleared to set up about 15 rvs right now. 3/4 of it shaded.

If I ever get enough ahead to retire, maybe I'll come and stay at your place a few days. My Dad has a small little fifth wheel and a pick up set up for it. I have an Army buddy in Sevierville, TN, so I could make a few weeks out of it. All this is predicated on whether or not gasoline will still be available that far in the future and cost less than $4 a gallon.

Enjoy the change,

Very nice, glad to hear your doing well.

My grandfather bought a new Kubota like that one a few years ago before he died, they are fantastic tractors.

Leaving the wife's Savannah home this morning and heading back to the farm. Thanks for the encouragement everyone. Oh yea, did I mention that the place where I'm living has blueberry bushes growing all over the place. During renovation/clean up we found the septic tank and opened it up this past week and it was full of roots. It was built in place (1929) and other than being full of tree roots still looks good and works.

I'll be back in here next opportunity.

Take care everyone.
