Interesting, but he may have been misinformed. Someone looking to make that sort of investment should consult with a lawyer who specializes in APA law.

West Adirondack Land

I'm hoping a conservation group is secretly looking at this purchase, but they rarely raise an eyebrow for this part of the world.

Lookin' good.

We just got a 2018 CR-V to replace a total loss. I'm excited to have an AWD vehicle again. Haven't had one since I swapped my Forester for an Odyssey.
