So everyone riding by can see that they have a big ass nice house.
This.
The difference between the people that want a house to say, "look what I have" vs those that want to be off in the woods and say, "You don't know what I have."

Been watching this thread just to gauge the mindset of my fellow humans.
And i have not been disappointed.

I live in a double wide trailer
with a woman i'm not married to
Got 3 broke down traps in the yard
A Pit Bull terrier and a REALLY bad attitude.
A country song by Toby Keith would sum up my life.

Now, i'm on 6 1/2 acres and debt free.
Happy does not even start to describe me.

Got a woman who loves me, 2 daughters who rule my world since i got divorced.
Life is good...


My crib is worth 500% more than i paid for it and insured for this amount.

Go chase rainbows and owe money.
I choose not to.
'Dre out...

My wife always called the lights that people shine on there houses "look at me" lights. Along the same lines as above.
Gonna need a hell of a lot more than 10 acres, unless your 10 acres is only 100ft wide.
I was wondering too. My parents have over 100 acers and we could barely stretch 350 yards out of it.

I guess I wasn’t really thinking a square property…most of what I’ve been seeing is Nevada/Oklahoma/slice of pizza shaped.
Slice of pizza is about you only option if you want any space around the house w/ 10 acres.
Math says for a right triangle shaped lot, if you stand at the curb and shoot perfectly into the very pinpoint of the end, to get 3,000 ft you still have only ~300 ft of curb space.

You need more acreage.

What about the guy who goes out and buys the newest model top of the line $100,000 pickup? What does that say?

Just like the house, it depends on the context of how its used and where it's put.

$100,000< That's a 3/4 ton with roll up windows these days, isn't it?
