I told my wife we an live anywhere and she said. We'll probably should go out by ur friends and the river. I said well the river yes.
Then I get. As long as we have property there like we do here. No problem. Wish she would of said this 2 years ago.

I think Williams is out. Wife jus liked how small the town was.
I think it's between Prescott and payson area.
We r definitely downsizing, probably only 2 horses, 20 chickens, 1 goose, 1 duck and two dogs and will have 1 show steer for Emmie for FFA, wife says 5 acres is good enough.
As schedule to do this. We will only have one left in the house with 3 years of high school left. Then we can travel more.
Thanks for all the help so far.

We just moved to Prescott Valley Sept 1st. We have 2 acres (horse property). We love it here. The town of Prescott itself you would be a little hard pressed to find acreage. I would say look in Prescott Valley, Chino Valley, Paulden & Dewey in that order. These are all basically subdivisions of Prescott and are all ranch friendly. I'm not an expert but if I help in anyway just PM me and I can give you my #.

have you considered st george?? it's population is about 50k more than Prescott. u could live in the outskirts and have bigger city life close by but still outta sight. 4 seasons, a lil further from the river but I'd bet land and housing is cheaper.

Thanks for the info. May hit ya up after the first of the year. I think we r jus wanting about 5 acres, we want to down size a lot. Get ready for full retirement ( hopefully)
I think we will be making a trip out there in April to look around.
I have looked on the Internet and found a few places, that fit the bill. Jus not real familiar with the area as far as locations the ads describe.
Thanks again.

I like St George a lot. Very nice area. I have not looked at prices , but seems to be a expensive looking area. Also it is wrong location , have to go through Vegas to get to river , Cali etc, and we all know what a zoo that traffic is.

My wife was looking at page, az. And said look property and you have this big lake there. She has no clue what Powell is about. Then she said , jus take that river from there to Parker. Lol.
Thanks for the thought

Heck if I had my way , I would buy in the keys and be done. We need place for horses and still have one in high school.

This married life with two step daughters is overrated. Kinda like growing up

Lived in Chino Valley then Paulden, had 5 acres 2 1/2 miles off of highway 89 on Gunsite Rd.
25 miles north of Prescott. Lots of parcels for sale in that area. It was beautiful. Zoned for
Animals. Cold for a So Cal girl in the winter but summers were just right. Only 2 hours to
Bullhead City.

I have spent a lot of time in Prescott, Prescott Valley, Dewey, and recently Payson. Prescott has the largest resources in town, but there is just something about the area around Payson I like. You really can't go wrong with any of the areas, and you should be able to find exactly what you are looking for.

Williams will soon be home to the next six flags amusement park. They have been buying up property for the past few years there.

I really like payson area for what I see on the Internet. It will probably be payson or Prescott. As of now.
Thanks for the opinion.

Let me add we are now in crunch time. Our place in Oklahoma goes on the market Wednesday and we have moved the timeline up 1 year, which means as soon as school is done for this year ( in May sometime) we are moving west

260 cafe and Buffalo Bar are must stops for food. Roll in to Pine and stop at Sidewinders Saloon and then go in the grocery store next door. THE BEST bakery i can think of. The Sportsmans bar in Strawberry is pretty good also and the owner is a Lake Pleasant boater.

We almost moved to Payson years ago, but we ended up in Pinetop instead. My brother lived there for a year and had enough and left.

We looked in Chaparral Pines and otherwise mostly outside of Payson with more land. Star Valley, Pine, Strawberry, Tonto Village, and anything private along Control Road. I can't even remember the realtor who we were talking to but i'd imaging anyone will be dialed in as it is not a very big area.

Roosevelt lake can get nasty with a quickness. Its a very big lake and the wind rolls through there like a freight train. Personally i would put Apache Lake on top of the list, but its just a bitch towing in there. They do have a marina so ballers like you could just keep yore boat there :D

And be warned, Payson gets extremely busy on summer weekends. Traffic can be backed up for miles and miles with all the flatlanders escaping the hell that is Feenix.

Don't worry. Only way I will be close to you is passing through to the river or headed to the airport.

Lol. Prescott is nice. My wife is all excited about payson , we r making a 3 day run out there in a few weeks.

We will be searching the Prescott area when we head back after DS. Taking a couple extra days to see some homes and the sights.

Update. Great news. My options have opened up. We will not be moving with animals. Jus two dogs.

Wife said sell all the farm animals and if we want to get more we can at a later time.

It's very hard to travel a long distance with two 1200 lb animals.

Hey. One has a year left and she is off to college and then the other one has 4 years of high school and then she gets my size nine in her ass straight out the door.

4 years ain't nothing. Although I am to old for this shit. What was I thinking.
