Well - I've not spent a winter up here yet, but from what I understand - snowshoes are required. Neighbor who lives down the hill about 1/4 mile says that once or twice a year, you need to park at the bottom of the road and hike it. Most folks just leave their quads down at the bottom of the road in the winter and use those to get up to their homes if it gets bad. That's my plan. The road (which is basically my driveway) is about 1.5 miles and has about 1,100 ft of elevation climb. House sits at roughly 5,500 ft +/- 500 depending on where you are on the property.

Fantastic, sir! That is a very nice home for the money - well, a very nice home full stop. You did well.

Beautiful country!
Thanks - I am about 30 miles from Boone. Not far away at all. Come visit, I've got some moonshine soaked maraschino cherries for my guests.

For reference, my friend just bought one of these units for rental income in my area. He paid $90,000. 2br 3ba, 1200 sf. w/ a 2 car garage. Only 10 minutes from the speedway too. Will rent for about $500 per day during those two weeks.

Don't sweat petty things....or pet sweaty things.
