    My wife and I are on the verge of buying a 5 acre parcel just minutes from our favorite lake. Right now it's a 3 hour drive, but there are some opportunities within the company that might move me elsewhere which would turn the trip into a four hour drive.

    How far are you guys driving to your rec properties? Keep in mind that I have a 4yr old and and 18 month old, so the days of 12 hour road trips are a thing of the past./forums/images/icons/wink.gif I'd be curious to hear about your experiences, good and bad.

    My Dad has 40 acres+/- in Snowflake, AZ. He bought it so he could retire there though. But currently there is only our little camp trailer on it, so once in a while we will drive up there and hang out for the weekend. It is only about 1/2 from Show Low, AZ where there are some nice lakes and forests. My dads property is about 3-4 hours away from PHX depending on how you drive. Maybe less now becasue they have improved the highways between the two. It just a nice place to get away, relax, and get away from the big city.

    i have 400 acres for hunting and fishing. its about a one hour drive. its got river frontage 5 ponds a creek and deer on it. 4 hours isnt that bad a drive depending on how much you like it. my friend has 5000 acres of good hunting land that we drive over 3 hours to every other week in hunting season. definatly worth the drive. my land i dont really consider to be very far off.
