LINK TO TOWN
[link to www.bufordtradingpost.com]

QOUTE:

"If you've got a spare $100,000, you could potentially become the owner of a small Wyoming town that's set to be auctioned off next month by its sole resident.

After more than 30 years of residing in the unincorporated community, town "mayor" Don Sammons says it's finally time to move on.

"Don, 'The Mayor', is retiring after 20 wonderful years in his town," Sammons writes on the website for his business, the Buford Trading Post, a gas station and store. "This entire, income producing, town is for sale; the house, the Trading Post, the former school house, along with all the history of this very unique place."

Buford, located between Cheyenne and Laramie, was first founded in the 1860s and was once home to an estimated 2,000 residents before the Transcontinental Railroad was rerouted."

100.000..thought mayors had to be elected? then again...1 person population?

what if oil or natural gas was found?
 Quoting: Gonviral


I know theres a good chance theirs oil. Ive been not to far from there in Colorado and there was lots of oil rig jobs.

Colorado (Wyomings neighbor) has cheap natural gas too. Heard from one person cranking their furnace the whole winter and their natural gas bill was only 85 dollars.

Better look into the water rights . This can be an issue in Wyoming.

Good point there,

Speaking of Yellowstone, I think its going to blow one day. But I think weve got more time other than Cali which is on the ring of fire earthquake zone.

Modern State Of Israel To Relocate To Scottsdale Area In 2012

The modern state of Israel which was formed in 1948 and has a population of approximately 7.7 million people has been contemplating moving for quite some time.

“The weather is fine but when all your neighbors hate you and they occasionally throw bombs at you, it gets a little tiring,” said local resident Moishe Kantor. Israel has been looking for something suitable for quite some time and given the depressed real estate prices in the U.S., the state has found property they like in the Arizona desert. “It is a real deal that is hard for us to pass up,” said the Israel press office. “Plus there are no suicide bombers.”

Arizona is welcoming the jewish people with open arms and said another 8mm people or so should fill up about half of the available foreclosed homes around the Phoenix and Scottsdale area.

It seems like a match made in heaven said Phoenix Mayor, Frank Pitts. “We think them Israelites are smart people so it should be fun to have them around, plus every immigrant who is not a Mexican is a good thing for us,” said the Mayor.










Looks like Wyoming was too cold , looks like Phoenix will be home to the "New Israel" !
 Quoting: 719 1953719


Thats not wise ! No water, Aquifers will dry up soon. Bad choice. Plus it gets too hot

Have you ever picked up a Phoenix phone book? pages and pages of escort and prostitution ads. Phoenix is your lesser known , sex industry city. I wasnt impressed, I wouldnt live there if I was given a million dollars

They will run out of water soon and those cities will be ghost towns.
 Quoting: APOLLYON .


You're absolutely right. For family reasons I've been here for a year and a half. I wouldn't wish the place on my worst enemy. Freakin' HOT for months on end. You get second degree burns from just touching your car in the summer. And the "dry heat" thing is BS. When it's 120 for months, it's 120! And the monsoon season comes in for a couple of those months and it's just awful. Nothing but cactus and BORING scenery.

A few nice people, but out of the question for a lot of reasons.

 Quoting: APOLLYON .



Why would you want publicly educated degreed teachers. People that care can do a much better job by just setting up a homescooling mini-school exchange. Trust me. I did it with two kids with learning disabilities, and now one is an electrician and the other a physics major going for doctorate.

They both swear they had a much better education than their peers, and they also actually studied the constitution, in depth.

What you just said here is the one thing I have against the internet. Probably 95% of it is just bullshit that is taken as gospel by those who do not know a damn thing, haven't been anywhere or done anything.............. and then they repeat it. And it continues to get repeated.

There is a distinct lack of factual knowledge and it requires a lot of searching to actually find it and vet it.

This site is filled with dorks who just blather away as if they know what they are talking about and constantly talk down and over those who post that reveal they know what they are talking about to those who can pick up on it.

If it was not for the news that others find and post I would not bother with this site because of the total lack of maturity and civility.

I live in the area. I have met Don Sammons. I hope he is leaving the state. I doubt you will buy the town for anything near $100,000. I could be wrong, but I think he will hold out for a lot more money. A big wind generator right there would be great, it is always windy up there. In Wyoming the power company is required to buy your excess energy. For those of you thinking about oil, the mineral rights in Wyoming are mostly owned by the government and the UP railroad. Wyoming is a great place for GLPers. There are lots of preppers here already. If you are politically conservative Wyoming is a great place to live and raise kids. If you are a libtard, Wyoming can be a very hard place. In Wyoming, we work hard and we play hard. If that sounds like you, this could be a chance to move up to God's country.
