    • It looks very favorable that I'll win a bid on 158 acres of land. It's just a crop lease, but it should be real dark . It's deep in a hollar.

    The land is mostly cleared, 125 acres of soy and corn, the rest deciduous forest. Big open fields free of the forest obstructions that plague me now. By Harvest end, the corn will be disc under. Currently I have a horrible Northern view. This should take care of that lickity split.

    I hoping to get down to the hollow this week. Maybe I can get some photos.

    I hope so Reggie. I don't know why it wouldn't be. I live close to a road that has been under construction forever. The lights they use, really kills my sky. Plus, my house has really tall black walnuts, and maple trees. I'm always limb dodging in my viewing. Astronomy was not the purpose of obtaining the lease, but i'm hoping it will be a great perk.
