Land sale financing information

Hello again!  I wanted to take a few minutes to tell you about the details behind Rocky Mountain Timberlands' financing options on the year-end sale properties.

Western Heartlands 112! 

The year-end sale is a 10% discount off of the purchase price on the 12 properties listed below if closing happens on or before December 30, 2011.  I'll offer a 5% discount on the same properties if closing happens before January 15th, 2012. 
Beartooth Valley Ranch is located in south central Montana, about an hour from Billings and about 30 minutes from Red Lodge.  The ranch sits at the base of the Beartooth Mountains, one of my favorite places!  I've lived in Montana for 30 years, so I feel my opinion of "favorite place" means something. 

The sale properties on this ranch are:

BVR-944-4 sale price $31,050 for 20 acres
5% down on a 15 year contract = $334 per month!
   
BVR-943-5 sale price $44,550 for 20 acres

BVR-936-15  sale price $17,910 for 20 acres  
5% down on a 15 year contract = $193/month!

Canyon Milagro, literal translation means Miracle Canyon.  It is located in central New Mexico, about 35 minutes west of Santa Rosa.  This 158+ acres is the very best our ranch has to offer.  Huge views, mild climate, and a great combination of seclusion & easy access.
CM-3a sale price $94,500
10% down on a 15 year contract = $962/month!

Cedar Canyon Ranch is located in southeastern Wyoming, near the town of Lance Creek. The neighboring ranch is still leased out every year for trophy mule deer hunting!  The 35 acres I have on sale borders roughly 540 acres of BLM (public land). 

CCR-26 sale price $29,610
5% down on a 15 year contract = $318/month!

Laramie Peak Ranch sits at about 5300 feet, and has HUGE views of the Wyoming countryside.  This 37+ acres has a seasonal creek on it, and it is only about 25 minutes from the town of Wheatland, Wyoming.

SOLD!

Sarpy Creek Ranch is located about 90 minutes east of Billings, Montana. 161+ acres with mature ponderosa pine trees, big views, and seclusion from the outside world.  The sale price on this one is a STEAL!
SC-10 sale price $148,500
10% down on a 15 year contract = $1,511/month!

Western Heartlands is about 30 minutes north of Cody, Wyoming.  Wyoming has no state income tax, and was just labeled as the best managed state in America.  These properties have easy access from a paved highway and big views of the Beartooth Mountains.  This would make an excellent 2nd home or cabin site, or simply a gift for future generations.  Take advantage of the prices before it's too late!

The best- and worst-run states in the US

The best- and worst-run states in the US

How well run are America’s 50 states? The answer depends a lot on where you live.
For the second year, 24/7 Wall St. has reviewed data on financial health, standard of living and government services by state to determine how well each is managed. Based on this data, 24/7 Wall St. ranked the 50 from best to worst. The best-run is Wyoming........

Happy Thanksgiving from Rocky Mountain Timberlands!

Happy Thanksgiving from Rocky Mountain Timberlands!



















Yesterday was a great day on Beartooth Valley Ranch
Jason Mascari  and I got to explore a new property at BVR,
which is 122 acres with about 3/4 mile of frontage on the
Clark’s Fork of the Yellowstone River.  This property will be
going up for sale in the next couple of days for $225,000.

After our property tour, I harvested a nice little mule deer buck.  
Not a trophy by any means, but he’ll make some great steaks 
& home made jerky!

2 weeks left for $3000 discount
Our hunter's special at Buffalo Trail Ranch means a $3000 discount on properties sold at Buffalo Trail Ranch before December 1, 2011! 

This ranch is littered with trophy elk, mule deer, antelope, birds, and even a few trout.  A good friend of mine harvested a 5 x 5 bull elk from the ranch about two weeks ago, and there are still hundreds more... 

This ranch is located between Laramie and Wheatland, Wyoming - both cities are based largely on farming & ranching, and both have low populations.  What does that mean?  It means food is produced here, and there aren't many people to eat it.  That may seem like a simple concept, but in today's world I find it comforting.   


There are some small trout in the creek that can be caught if you're very good at sneaking up on them!   
35+ acres on Buffalo Trail Ranch is currently starting at $39,900 (or $36,900 if you buy in time to take advantage of the hunter's special).

There are a few properties left that qualify for this sale, call or email us today for more information. 
 
If you can't make it out to see the property before December 1, ask us about our no time limit guarantee for buying property site-unseen.  Do you have credit issues?  One of my personal jobs at this company is finding ways to deal with less than sparkly credit reports.  Try me, I might surprise you.

Alaska Property for Sale!



There is more sight seeing in Alaska than one could accomplish in a lifetime. There are endless rivers, mountains, glaciers and islands scattered along the cost line than one could imagine. Alaska is the largest state:

  • 586,400 Square Miles
  • We are 2 times the size of Texas
  • We have 29 volcanoes 33,000 miles of coastline!

Homer and Anchor Point on the Kenai Penisula


Homer is a city located in Kenai Peninsula Borough in the U.S. state of Alaska. According to 2005 Census Bureau estimates, the population was 5,364. One of Homer's nicknames is "the cosmic hamlet by the sea"; another is "the end of the road". A popular local bumper sticker characterizes the town as "Homer - A quaint little drinking village with a fishing problem."

Anchor Point, "North America’s Most Westerly Highway Point", is a destination choice of visitors from around the world. Year around recreational opportunities abound - from river and saltwater fishing, camping, and hiking opportunities in the summer to snow machining, cross country skiing, and nearby ice fishing in winter - contributing to its nickname of "fun capital" of the Kenai Peninsula.

Just 200 miles south of Anchorage, an hour drive from world famous Kenai River, and twenty minutes from the grandeur of Kachemak Bay, the personal warmth and friendliness of the residents of this rural community attract visitor and newcomer alike. A cross section of homesteaders, commercial fishermen, business owners, and retirees, Anchor Point is held together by common interest, cooperation, and a true caring by neighbors and those who live here

Cody, Wyoming Wiki

Geography

Cody is located at 44°31′24″N 109°3′26″W / 44.52333°N 109.05722°W / 44.52333; -109.05722 (44.523244, -109.057109).[4]

Near Cody, Wyoming
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 9.5 square miles (24.7 km²), of which, 9.3 square miles (24.0 km²) of it is land and 0.2 square miles (0.6 km²) of it (2.52%) is water.
Cody's elevation is about 5016 ft (1,500 m) above sea level. The main part of the city is split across three levels, separated by about 60 feet (18 m).

The Shoshone River flows through Cody in a fairly deep canyon. There are four bridges over this river in the Cody vicinity, one at the north edge of town that allows travel to the north, and one about 5 miles (8 km) east of Cody that allows passage to Powell, and the areas to the north and east. The other two are west of town; one allows access to the East Gate of Yellowstone National Park, and the other is used by fishermen in Shoshone Canyon and as access to the Buffalo Bill Dam. Cody is located at the western edge of the Bighorn Basin, a depression surrounded by the Big Horn, Owl Creek, Bridger, and Absaroka ranges. At the western edge of Cody, a deep canyon formed by the Shoshone River provides the only passage to Yellowstone's Eastern Entrance. At its mouth and rising above Cody are Rattlesnake Mountain on the north side and Cedar Mountain on the south side. Most of Cody has a spectacular view of Heart Mountain, whose 8000 ft (2,400 m) peak is 9 miles (14 km) directly north of Cody, and the Carter Mountains, which form a line with peaks at about 12,000 ft (3,700 m), some 15 miles (24 km) to the south.

"The Scout" by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney commemorates Buffalo Bill

Culture 

Themes surrounding Cody's pioneer and Cowboy and Western history are common in the cultural events and activities in the area.
The Buffalo Bill Historical Center is a large and modern facility located near the center of the city. It contains five museums in one, and maintains large collections. It is a favorite stopping point for tourists passing through the town, on their way to or from Yellowstone. During the summer, a re-enactment of a wild-west shoot-out takes place next to the Irma Hotel, another historical site still open for business with a hotel and restaurant, which forms the nucleus of the town.
Old Trail Town in Cody, Wyoming.
The flag waves at the start of the Cody Nite Rodeo, August 6, 2006
Old Trail Town, a restoration of more than twenty-five historic Western buildings and artifiacts is located in Cody just off the Yellowstone Highway.
Rodeo is important in the culture in Cody, which calls itself the "Rodeo Capital of the World". The Cody Nite Rodeo is an amateur rodeo every night from June 1 through August 31.

Cody Rodeo
Cody is also host to the Cody Stampede Rodeo. The Stampede is a PRCA rodeo and is one of the largest rodeos in the nation that is held over the Independence Day Holiday. Many of the top cowboys in the country attend. The stampede has been held from July 1–4 every year since 1919.

The Cody Firearms Museum has a large collection of American firearms.
Cody is the birthplace of the famous abstract artist Jackson Pollock.

Education

Public education in the city of Cody is provided by Park County School District #6. Three elementary schools – Eastside, Glenn Livingston, and Sunset - serve students in grades kindergarten through five. The district's two secondary campuses are Cody Middle School (grades 6-8) and Cody High School (grades 9-12).

Industry

The primary industry in Cody is tourism. Hotels, restaurants and shops cater to travelers coming to visit the West and Yellowstone Park. Cody has several art galleries, with some notable local painters and artists living in the area. Another industry is western style furniture, with several small furniture makers producing custom pieces. The oil industry seems to wax and wane over the years in the Cody area. Just to the south of Cody are large deposits of gypsum. Park County School District #6 is another large employer in the area.

Climate

The weather in the Big Horns is highly variable, with large temperature swings always possible. Winters normally bring average lows of 10 °F (-12 °C), and summers can bring record highs of 100 °F (38 °C). Relative humidity is usually a fairly dry 30% or less. Precipitation averages 9 inches (229 mm) of rain per year, making the surrounding area a semi-arid desert. During June, July, and August, if it does snow, it is usually brief and melts quickly. Such events are not frequent, but there are sudden and drastic shifts in weather conditions. Cody enjoys about 300 days of sunshine per year.

Wind is almost a constant presence in the Cody area and the Big Horn Basin in general. Air flow in the Basin is turbulent, but during the winter most storms move in from the north-northwest. During the summer it is not unusual to see storms move in from the southwest. Throughout a normal day, winds can be experienced as coming from almost any direction, mostly from the north and west, but sometimes from the south and east. The Canyon at the west end of Cody funnels rain and wind across the city from the west. The winds can be quite strong at 30 to 40 mph (50 to 60 km/h) and last for several days.
Because of the dry climate, the entire area is laced with irrigation canals, holding ponds, laterals, and drops. The Buffalo Bill Dam between Rattlesnake and Cedar mountains forms a large reservoir about 10 miles (16 km) to the west of Cody. This reservoir (among others) feeds the Shoshone Project, a large irrigation water distribution system.

In January the average maximum daily temperature is 35.9 °F (2.2 °C) and the minimum is 12.8 °F (−10.7 °C). In July the average maximum temperature is 84.9 °F (29.4 °C) and the minimum is 54.6 °F (12.6 °C). An average of 18.0 days have highs of 90 °F (32 °C) or higher and an average of 168.4 days have lows of 32 °F (0 °C) or lower. The record high temperature was 105 °F (41 °C) on July 14, 1925, and the record low temperature was −46 °F (−43 °C) on February 8, 1936.

The wettest year was 1991 with 16.04 inches and the dryest year was 1956 with 3.58 inches. The most rainfall in one month was 5.76 inches in June 1992. The most rainfall in 24 hours was 2.51 inches on July 22, 1973. There are an average of 68 days with measurable precipitation. Annual snowfall averages 39.7 inches. The most snow in one year was 70.7 inches in 2000. The most snow in one month was 26.3 inches in January 1972.[5]

Montana Wildlife

Montana Wildlife

Author: Jason Frey



To say Montana is special in regards to wildlife conservation and interaction is an understatement. The location, layout, physical characteristics, and vegetative communities of the entire ecosystem provide a highly complex, diverse, and productive environment for wildlife of all types.
The regions surrounding Bozeman and Big Sky Montana are home to well over 50 mammalian species, most notably elk, black bear, moose, mountain lion, gray wolf, as well as white tail and mule deer. In addition, hundreds of bird species call Southwestern Montana home on a permanent or migratory basis. In no other place can you find an ecosystem comprised of these animals interacting as it did since before the time of Columbus' arrival to North America.
 
Montana Land For Sale

Southwestern Montana is special in other regards as well. Large portions of contiguous land that serve as migration corridors from Yellowstone Park to the Yukon Territory are rapidly shrinking or disappearing entirely. Southwestern Montana remains a keystone of this corridor. Stretching from the Yellowstone River and Absaroka Mountains to the east and the Gallatin National Forest to the south and west, the Bozeman area is part of a greater wildlife community that abounds with diversity, both in terms of types of species and opportunities to enhance and preserve them.
As a greater part of our story, we are trying to not only preserve the pre-existing ecosystem in Southwestern Montana, but to also enhance and allow these species which form the cornerstone of the greater wildlife community to thrive.

Wyoming Walleye Fishing Hot Spots

Wyoming Walleye Fishing Hot Spots

Wyoming Walleye Fishing Hot Spots


Author: Daniel Eggertsen


Freshwater fishermen and women love a good challenge and walleye is one of the many challenges they can face if they choose to try their hand fishing in the state of Wyoming. Mysterious creatures, these type of fish loves to hide out in the sandy or rocky bottom of whatever body of water they happen to be in. They love the cold water, yet tolerate the warmer temperatures when summer and fall in the state set in. A tender, flaky, white meat fish, walleyes are supposedly the best tasting of all the fresh water fishes.

Wyoming Recreational Land For Sale Click Here

Walleyes, while being somewhat elusive, like to eat anything and everything that moves and catches its attention that won't eat them first. If they are living in the deeper water of Wyoming, they set themselves up as the hunter and get the unsuspecting hunted as it floats or swims by. They are quick enough to be virtually undetected unless its summer time when they seem to gravitate towards the waters surface. If you're looking for the perfect time to catch these tasty beauties then you want to go out between sundown and midnight.

Wyoming in and of itself is a beautiful state filled with plenty of places to go walleye fishing. Walleye fishing, in addition to some other species, is going to be extremely here and when attempting to define true hot spots which a few are listed at the bottom it's very easy to say that bodies of water throughout the state are walleye hot spots because almost every single one of them has a walleye or two in them. When you stop and look at the numbers, the state of Wyoming has right around 300,000 acres or water. That amount comprises 4,200 lakes. There is an additional 27,000 miles of rivers. If fishers cannot find a walleye in Wyoming, they may need to determine what they are doing wrong.

Walleyes like anywhere there is vegetation, which makes lakes and reservoirs prime fishing spots. They hide in the weeds at the bottom in order to sneak up on their own food as its swimming past. They also like the calm waters of these areas instead of the consistent movement of the rivers. That's not to say fishers won't find them in the rivers because they will. Anyone trying to catch one stands a better chance in the calmer waters. Fishers will find their catch patrolling the larges sandy flat areas of these bodies of water.



Spawning season for Wyoming walleye is in May and this is when they change their habits a little bit. During the end of this time of year, male walleyes can be found closer to the surface. They are feeding after all of the other fish have moved on. Fishers can easily capitalize on this fact by using a live bait rig weighted for the appropriate water clarity and depth. Walleye will go for lines baited with small, live organisms or minnows. Once it catches their eye, all the fisherman needs to do is start reeling in the line.

Mule Deer Hunting Guide

Are you interested in mule deer hunting? This ancient sport provides a wide variety of benefits. Their meat, pelt, and antlers alone are enough to make these creatures prized additions to any home. Due to their lower numbers and migratory patterns, finding these deer can be somewhat difficult. Their distinctive appearance and behavior makes them a challenge to hunt as well.
Mule deer are characterized by their dark, coarse pelts, dense size, black tipped tail, and large, white tipped ears. Unlike most other species, they move in a very fast, unusual way-rather than sprinting or vaulting the way their white tailed cousins do, they jump in a method known as stotting, which is a series of fast, lengthy, stiff-legged jumps where all four hooves hit the ground at once. It may sound like an awkward way to move, but bolting in this way is surprisingly effective.
Unlike moose, elk, or other species, mule deer rarely make any noise, which rules out the use of bulges or other hunting calls. Their large ears also make them difficult to sneak up on-constantly in movement, they are ever aware of even the slightest sound. Their sensitive noses are also adept at picking up out of place scents. Wyoming Mule Deer Hunting Guides
When mule deer hunting, a common challenge many new hunters face is the issue of deer stands. While those who hunt white tailed deer regularly benefit from using a tree stand, mule deer are typically located in vast stretches of meadows or rocky areas. Worse still, they are quite adept at spotting motion. Located throughout the west and southwest, these deer are also known for being the most active during the morning and evening, when the weather is cooler.
Many hunters, however, relish the new challenge of mule deer hunting. There are a wide assortment of techniques to consider when hunting these animals. Some are basic common sense, such as avoiding heavily scented soaps or shampoos when bathing, lest their scent give you away. Others include staying as motionless as possible and shooting when the deer has its attention focused on food or on another sound.
If you're unaccustomed to mule deer hunting, perhaps you should consider a guided hunt. This is the act of arranging a hunt while accompanied by trained professionals. This can be especially useful if you're unfamiliar with the terrain as well as the typical habits of the mule deer. Your guides will be able to give you tips regarding tracking, stalking, and shooting. Best of all, you'll be able to return to a cozy cabin or camp ground. Many hunting outfitters of this kind also provide you with hot meals and other commodities. Wyoming Mule Deer Hunting Guides

Grow Your Food in a Monolithic Cabin Grow-Dome

Why grow your own?

 

 

Good question! Can’t we just keep making our weekly stock-up trip to the supermarket? Well of course you can.
But there are some growing (pun intended) reasons not to: 1) Tainted food has become more prevalent; 2) More people means a greater need for food; 3) The price of non-processed food continues rising; 4) Home-grown produce can be picked and eaten at its prime time – not when its green, truck-ripened and flavorless.

Many people would like to grow their own food but simply have no place to do so. Others may have garden space but feel the climate is against them: too warm, too cold, no rain, too much rain, storms and tornadoes, too short of a growing season.

Things I use, living off grid

by TREASUREGIFT on SEPTEMBER 2, 2010

1) Propane cook stove. We salvaged ours from an old travel trailer that was being dismantled, it has 3 burners on top and an oven. We actually have 2 of these now, we are in the process of cleaning up the second one. I haven’t decided if we will use the second one inside the sky castle or put it to use in an outdoor kitchen, either way, it will be a great addition to the one I use every day. We got ours free from some friends who were getting rid of some old travel trailers, they needed some major cleaning, not because they had been used and not cleaned, it was because of mice. They had made homes inside the stoves, we had to remove the insulation and replace it with new, we scrubbed the stove, inside and out, after that it was as good as new. If you find a treasure like this, be sure to check and make sure the orifice for the unit is for propane, if it’s not, it will not burn properly, orifices made for natural gas are larger so if you try to use propane in a natural gas orifice, you will get a blow torch flame, ask me how I know (grin).

2) Cast iron cookware. I absolutely love my cast iron comal and 10 inch frying pan. I use them everyday. I even make biscuits (not cookies) in them, I use my comal for the biscuits, I place a deep lid on top to make it like an oven. The biggest concern about using cast iron cookware is properly cleaning and storing it. If you use it everyday, it’s not such a big deal, just wipe it out, if you do it while it’s still somewhat hot, it’s easier to clean. Do not use soap on your cast iron, do not use harsh metal scrubbers, use a plastic scrubber or a rag and some hot water to clean your pan, dry it thoroughly, oil it lightly and put it away for the next use. If you are going to store it for a long time, make sure it’s clean, oil it well, inside and on the outside, and store it until your next use. A well seasoned cast iron pan will not stick and will be easy to clean. Never, NEVER leave your cast iron pan soaking in water, they will rust. I prefer getting mine pre-seasoned from the factory, or acquiring mine second hand, preferably from someone who took care of their cast iron pans.

3) Pressure cooker. There are so many ways to use this, my only regret is that I didn’t know about these earlier in my life! The one I use is a stainless steel, 6 quart pressure cooker, it’s the perfect size for 2-4 people, it’s big enough to cook a whole chicken or a pot of beans. The main thing that I love about my pressure cooker is how fast everything cooks, it’s microwave fast! I can cook a pot of pinto beans in 15 minutes or less. The only reason it takes THAT long for me is I am at a high altitude, for anyone using it at lower altitudes, you can cook them for 6-10 minutes and they will be done. To do beans I pick and clean the beans, then soak them overnight. The next day when I’m ready to cook them, I rinse the beans, put them in the pressure cooker, cover with an inch of water (use beef or chicken stock for more flavor), add chopped onions, chili powder, ground pepper, chopped jalapeno pepper, and any other seasonings or meat I wish (wait to add the salt until after the beans are cooked). I add a little oil then close the lid and turn on the heat. Once the rocker is rocking, I turn down the heat and start timing it. For me it takes about 10 minutes. I then turn off the heat and allow the pressure to come down by itself, if you are in a hurry, you can put the pot in the sink and pour cold water over the pot until the pressure is released. I also make baked potatoes in my pressure cooker, they turn out great! Soups, stews, you name it, you can probably cook it in a pressure cooker.


With the quicker cooking times, I am using much less propane, before I used this method, I couldn’t make a pot of beans or baked potatoes, it just flat out took too much time and fuel, I couldn’t afford to use that much propane cooking all day.

4) Tankless water heater. I still remember the day when we received our tankless water heater, before that we had to heat water on the stove if we wanted or needed hot water for anything, bathing, cleaning, doing dishes… Now all I have to do is turn on the hot water tap and in seconds I have hot water. The one we use is a smaller unit, it’s considered a portable unit though we have ours permanently mounted on the wall.


5) 12 volt water pump. Once you have water, you need a way to pump the water from one place to another, unless you are lucky enough to have gravity on your side. For us, we are pumping water from a small tank just outside the kitchen wall into the kitchen, everything is level, so we use a 12 volt water pump to move the water from the tank to the sink. The benefits of using a 12 volt pump is we can hook it up directly to the batteries, we aren’t losing energy by using an inverter.

Our pump is inside the sky cabin, near the sink, that makes things a bit noisy when the pump is on. When we first hooked up the inside plumbing, each time we turned on the faucet, the pump would come on, it sounded a bit like being next to one of those air pumps at the gas station, but it was a small price to pay to have running water. The main reason we keep it inside the sky castle is to keep it from freezing during the winter.

6) Pressure tank This is something that isn’t completely necessary, not like the water pump, but it certainly has made life better. The way a pressure tank works is it is first and foremost a tank, it has a rubber bladder inside, on one side is air under pressure, the other side is for the water, it allows the water to be under pressure, that way the water pump does not have to run each time we turn on the water faucet. Now it’s much quieter in the sky castle, until the pump has to come on to pump up the pressure tank, it runs for several minutes, then goes off until it’s needed again.

We salvaged these as well, someone was upgrading their equipment and do longer needed their old pressure tank. All we had to do was clean this one up, it had sat for a while unused, we had to run bleach water through it a few times because it had a mold smell, once we flushed it a couple of times, the mold smell was gone and it works like a charm. Since then, we have acquired a second pressure tank in the same way, it’s always a good idea to have backups. Now our water starts out in a tank, goes through the wall in a hose, this goes to the 12 volt water pump, next it goes to the pressure tank, from there it goes to the cold side of the sink faucet, another pipe goes to the tankless water heater then to the hot water side of the faucet. Another pipe goes to the Berkey Light water purifier, which brings me to the next item.

7) Berkey Light Water Filter. It’s debatable whether or not this water purifier is a necessity, I would say it is, even though our water out here is very good, we are still storing it in a tank before using it, I prefer running my drinking and cooking water through the Berkey Light water purifier. This unit is perfect for off grid use, it requires no electricity or water pressure, it is strictly gravity fed, all you have to do is fill the top reservoir and let the water trickle down through the filters, you get clean great tasting water in the bottom reservoir.
 
We have automated the filling process by cutting a hole in the top cover and running a water pipe into the top. all I have to do is turn on a valve for a few seconds and the top reservoir is filled. The only maintenance is about once a month or so, I empty the purifier, I disassemble the top from the bottom tanks, I remove the filter cartridges, I clean everything with a 3M green scrubby pad, I reassemble everything then fill the top tank. I always put in a few drops of food coloring (or Kool-aid) in the top to test everything, if everything is OK, the water coming through the cartridges is perfectly clear, no color (or Kool-aid) comes through.


I would have liked to make this a nice neat 10 item list, but in all honesty, those 7 items are the most useful and important to us, there are probably others, but for now I’ll leave the list at 7.
