I am looking to get a 20' container to store building materials and tools, and eventually incorporate into a cabin or garage. I would like a one trip container, or very good condition. Do you have transportation available? I'm out Mcadoo rd. across from Rancho Don Luis.
I can get you a 20’ one trip container in excellent condition for $3,599.00 delivered. I can save you $400 if you unload it yourself at delivery. You would just need a 3/4 ton pickup truck, a tractor, a bob cat or something similar to be the anchor point.
I also have a used one for $2,750.00 delivered with you unloading it. It may have a few dings but there are no holes, it's clean, and it’s wind watertight.
If you give me your email address, I can save this quote for you so you can refer back to it. That would also lock in the price for 21 days to protect from price increases.
I purchased 80 acres in unit 317 up against the mountain way south of town. Visiting it for the first time next weekend. We have some friends who design superadobe shelters (check out CalEarth) and we are hoping that everything works out for us to build some pretty cool shelters on the land.
USGS survey info and the agent both said the aquifer is better on the south end (300ft) which makes sense with the mountain, so we're hoping potable water is an option. To be honest I'm worried more about the daily hassle of driving through a border patrol checkpoint than any utility!
Wise choice on the southern end. Not sure where your property is but Silver Spur Ranch sits on the Red Light Draw aquifer. Border Patrol runs through CR 1111 often and usually pretty friendly. You can bypass checkpoint since you will be a local but they might pull you over depending on plates. Just let them know you are a new property owner or resident. But avoids lines and wasting time.
The Quitman Arroyo is stunning and beautiful with lots of history. Truly a hidden treasure (for now) with residents who look out for eachothers property.
Hello all! My wife and I just purchased a 27 acre corner lot from Sunset Ranches. It is in the Cornudas Ranch and we are off Big Ben Trail, unit 220 - tract 35. Are there any of you close to this location? Planning to take a look at it soon and was hoping there might be some neighbors to meet!
Greetings all - just purchased 60 acres in what I believe is Blue Quail 1. Tract 425, lots 28, 30 and 31. Going to check it out this weekend 11/04. Look forward to meeting and talking to as many of you as possible.
I purchased 20 acres, Unit 553. Any of you in the area close by? I'll be there on November 7th, see how it looks like. I'll bring my water/Tequila and my Drone. So if any of you need a video of your land or anything else let me know... email@example.com
How long will you be down? Will you be around that weekend?

Thanks Le. I used to live in New Mexico and absolutely love the southwest. Is it a nice and scenic area. I know it’s desolate which I love. I hope we’re neighbors. Is there a lot of trouble in that area? From what I read the neighbors keep an eye out for one another.
Hello everyone. A few days ago I purchased 20 acres in Sec 18,tract 29,Unit 305. I will go see it soon. I need to put some sort of livable building on it as soon as I can so I can move there. I will be bring my cats with me so need a safe place for them. We used to go camping in Big Bend National Park so I know what the area is like. Hoping to go solar with a composting toilet and buy the water. I am not capable of building anything myself. I am elderly. I cannot wait to move there. One concern I have is my car. I don't know if it can manage the roads there. I have a 2009 Hyundai hatchback. I really cannot afford a new car too. Can anyone tell me about the roads to my land. I know the last part is a dirt road. I will be moving from Houston, Tx. I will also be bringing I hope my 1300 books so if you get bored out there you can borrow some from me. I cannot imagine getting bored out there. Hope to see some of you soon. If you bought in my section I would like to hear from you. Email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm not sure where unit 18 is but I bought last year near big tank and mcadoo rd. Most of the ranch roads are passable if you go slow enough. If you need help with anything, just ask, everyone I've met have been very friendly.
You are out Big Tank rd. take 1111 just north of Sierra Blanca then Big Tank rd. east north east to the junction of Mcadoo rd. stay north on Big Tank to the ranch rd. that will go west to your place. They will escort you to your property if you make an appointment. You are about 40 minutes from Sierra Blanca. It isn't that far by mileage but you will want to take it easy on the county roads. I'm about 3-5 miles from you, near the big mountain at Big Tank and Mcadoo roads.
I went on the 25th to see my land and I loved it but the tour guide recommended me not to keep it to change to a different site. I have a small car and the road was bad. I drove there okay but if it rained it would be impassible. So the next day they showed me another lot north of Sierra Blanca. The land was prettier but not as many mountains. I switched to this second lot. There is still some bad areas on the road but there are 2 ways in. I remember passing Big Tank road. I am on Bonnie Pass. I can see a couple of neighbors off in the distance. I had not understood what open grazing was. A rancher has grazing rights on most of the properties. I didn't see any but they had been there. You have to fence your land if you do not want them on your property. I think maybe when it rains and creates ponds then he can put the cattle in so they have water temporarily. I am hoping to move there in 2-3 months as soon as I can arrange some sort of solar building.
I met someone in Van Horn that said that remote residents could get satellite phones from a county subsidized program for pretty cheap. Has anyone heard of such program? Granted, I was in Culberson county, but it seems reasonable that people need communication for emergency.
