Should I buy this town?
The sole resident of Buford, Wyoming is selling. It goes up for bid in April for $100,000. It includes the house, schoolhouse, and trading post (basically a fancy 7-11 with gas station.)
Let’s assume I can get a loan and there are no other bidders and now I own Buford…
Wyoming is gorgeous
No neighbors watching cable news at top volume (which makes everyone sound like they are yelling…yes, most are, but not all)
Harrison Ford might stop in (no idea how far this is from Jackson Hole…should probably look that up prior to bidding)
Zombies will probably stay away since there’s just me and Jason
I get to run a trading post on the side of the freeway which basically means good stories all day long. I’ll never show up to a dinner party empty handed again.
No dinner parties
School house is empty (unless I can convince Mr. Knightly of the value of an education)
Possibility of creepy couple breaking down late at night and we have to give ’em a bed for the night and it turns into a “based on true events” Lifetime, Television for Women special mini-series
I don’t look good in chaps, bolo ties or turquoise (although I do rock a cowboy hat)
This is why lists are good…it’s a lot to think over.
