You know that song from the “Bare Naked Ladies”? Fun group, even if they have no ladies in the band and thankfully the guys are not naked. The song is light hearted and fun, about what they would do if they had a million dollars.
My answer was always along the lines of “New truck and pay off the house” kind of stuff. Maybe a new gun. Boring stuff.
My wife showed me something the other day that has been on mind a lot lately. It’s a small house with a deep water dock. On an island. With a gigantic amount of land to go with it. Thick forested land. I would get that place, and turn it into a Training / Vacation spot. I could build a lodge near by and Student Guests could be picked up by boat and brought in.
It’s somewhat remote, but we would have Sat service for TV and Internet. Spectacular views, fishing, and privacy for small arms training. Half a Mil to buy it, another half mil to set up the lodge. The location is amazing. So students would fly in to a well known, international airport, take a cab to the docks, cruise to The Site, and pretty much spend a week shoot and fishing and taking in a view that is so gorgeous it brings a tear to my eye.
It’s never too hot in the summer, never too cold in the winter… I love it. It’s my personal perfect operational temperature range. The only downside, if you can call it a downside… is that there are no roads. Anywhere. It’s an island.
