    Ash is a basil guru, I'll ask her if she has any advice. She grows it all summer then takes it in side and keeps clipping it till it dies.

    The location is terrible, the house is a shoebox, the garage is a bit too small, but dat price tho. What would I do with the rest of my home budget if...

    Oh.


    I've spent lots of time in Oneida County, but I don't ever recall hearing reports of the Pelican River flooding at least.

    I'm honestly considering the house in Racine though. I could put up with living there for 25 years, and a house like that, there isn't a single project 2 guys couldn't complete in a day on it.

    Heh, the price of the second one wouldn't even come close to buying the first here.

    It has a garage... you just can't get a car to it.

    I spent a lot of time up in the Rhinelander area (mostly Tomahawk). It's a nice place to vacation. I never could have lived that far away from a big city, although Wausau has grown quite a bit in the last 10 years.

    Having that place in Rhinelander would certainly take the sting out of living in the other house. I'm pretty sure I could still fill a 32x48 garage though!

    My grandparents had a vacation home on a lake near Rhinelander, in McNaughton. I would always go up there a few times every summer as a kid. It's a great area and one I'd be happy to live in after retirement.

    Not being near a big city is the plus for me, tbh.

    For a vacation home, definitely. I had a few friends that lived up there.

    The best camping spot... while not an official 'campsite' is on the willow flowage. It's so remote and quite, it is really amazing. Although I wouldn't want to drive that far more than a few times a year.

    Same friend's family had a cottage on Blue Spring Lake, which was much better of a drive. I'd go there every few weeks if possible.

    I was mostly looking at land... but there were some decent lake properties between you and Lake Geneva.
