Give me land, lots of land

As I posted earlier, Lou bought some land in New Mexico. Here it is. It already has electricity and a well. There’s also a refrigerated shipping container and a ramada that could be the beginning of a house. There are no restrictions on what he may or may not build on the land. And it’s in a part of southern New Mexico that doesn’t get too hot or too cold.

Lou saw the property while looking for other land. It wasn’t listed for sale, but he asked some neighbors about it. They contacted the owner back East. Yeah, he was willing to sell.

A couple of days ago, as a welcoming gift, the neighbors who put him in contact with the seller came over and mowed his grass. Nice people.


  1. So glad to see you hook up with Lou again. I thought of him when you were complaining about the temperature a few days ago. I first "met" him when you guys were down on the Baja Peninsula a few years ago. I can still picture him going out in a canoe to rescue a whale.
    Keep me Dreaming.

    1. Thank you, but I think your memory of events is a little off. It was the "manager" in a leaky kayak towing away a dead porpoise. But Baja, marine mammal and boat were accurate. :)

  2. I like that part of New Mexico. I might move out there at some point.

  3. Something really bugs me about this Lou guy that I can't put into words!
