    my dad is now the proud owner of a chunk of land in southern utah, we're not gonna build a cabin we're just gonna level off enough ground to park our new toy box trailer on. its in a community of cabins up behind cedar city and brian head UT. my uncle and a bunch of my dad's friends/coworkers have property and cabins up there. its pretty cool it borders a creek that feeds the privately owned lake ( no need for fishing lisences /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif) and all of our family and friends ride quads up there too. just thought id share some of our good news. so who else has cabins or property that you go camping and riding on?

    I sort of live out in the woods...
    but there is paved roads, so I guess that doesn't count.
    I want to have a cabin in a remote area that no-one knows of one day... peace and quiet...

    My Dad has an nice little setup in back in the woods its an A-frame cabin thats REALLY nice it sleeps probably 5 and has a very small deck that has a fire pit right in the front setup for a nice fire. We even have running water but you gotta walk like a half mile to turn it on LOL.

    My dad bought lakefront property in Pennsylvania 20 years ago and built a house on it. It's pretty cool, but not too many places to do any riding or anything.

    I'm dying to buy some land we can do that on (take a trailer or go camping).


    Friggin dems. So friggin stupid. Sorry, watching the news as I type.

    /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif That place is amazing up there. I havent seen anything like it. So green, friendly....literally a different world up there.

    My grandpa joined a hunting club after WWII and built a cabin on it. Now it's my cabin! Well, not really mine, the owner of the land owns "my granpas" cabin and ~9000 acres and the hunting club members get to use ~4000 acres for hunting deer, pig, quail, pigeon, and dove. There is another club "the lower club" that uses another 4000. While it's not mine, I get to treat it just like it is, as long as I respect it. I've posted a pic of the cabin before, but I love it so much, heres another.

    60 acres near inbred town (Ione, Wa.), bought in 1911. Original farmhouse built in 1912/13 still kind of standing, 2nd "newer" house built in the 30's. Wooded hillside with lower "field" portion.

    No cabin, but a 1950 16ft Camp trailer my dad brought there in 1980. Then, a multitude of pickup campers and camp trailers collected by myself from 1996-present. Two mud pits, a shop, and a mini-wrecking yard of sorts.

    80 Acres near Sacheen Lake, Wa. (not on the lake) bought by my dad and mom in 1989. Two small streams, a pond we dug, and also a few old camp trailers/campers. All wooded, rolling hills. Also a few parts trucks showing up there, too. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    Heres a few nostalgic shots. One is of grandpa laying the first timbers, the next is a shot after he built the second room years later, the third is a more recent shot I was able to get in one of the rare instances when it snowed AND I was there to see it.
