It’s official I’m now the owner of 34 acres!
Just closed on 34 acres in McKean County. Made the decision to do it on my own and not get some buddies together to go in on it. Heard way to many horror stories to think about going that route. Took me a long while, worked my tail off and saved my pennies and bought it outright. Property is 100% timber and has a small stream flowing through it. Surrounded on 3 sides by timber company owned ground which is open to public hunting. The people on the front side own 54 acres and I got a right of way from them for the 1/4 mile to get to my property. First and only time I walked the property was in August and the foliage was real thick. Hoping to get up there soon to see all of what I really bought. Didn’t buy from a realtor just looked on onX maps at some areas I was interested in, did some digging and found some numbers made some phone calls and finally got someone that would consider selling a piece of ground. It has an old what I call a “oil pump house” on it. Tin siding and tin roof with a raised concrete slab in the center of it where the pump engine was once fastened. Will look harder at it when I’m up there again to see if it’s something I can work with a little to have shelter for a while until I save again to get a cabin on the property. It’s an awesome feeling having your own chunk of paradise and even without seeing what all it really has to offer yet. I’m sure between my wife and 3 kids we will create some awesome memories up there. With only being 33 years old I just hope it doesn’t take me another 33 years to be able to get a cabin on it!
