    Found this on a website and had to show it to you all. Id trade my citizenship and declare Calvin Coolidge as a Bolshevik for a place like this. ;) :p Take a look at what 45K will buy in Canada.

    Really really nice.
    The cabin looks a lot like what I envision someday using the gambrel roofed home depot type shed as a start.

  3. If it were west coast i think i would buy it today. Anyone know if they can cut a permit to reside for life or a citizenship? can we be citizens of both nations ? I realy had my heart set on possum lodge thought maybe red green would be a pretty good neighbor.

    Hello FolioMark,

    I just wanted to thank you for the comments about the 24 acres with self sufficient cabin. I have just received an offer for the property but I do have many others coming soon.

    Always good to hear from you as well as all others here.

    Yeah -- but you'd have to live in New Brunswick. It's one of the most economically depressed provinces in Canada -- behind Quebec, and Newfoundland, oh...and Saskatchewan.

    And we just won't mention the Territories.

    Actually, Mark, there are a lot of absolutely beautiful, inexpensive homesteads/acreages in the Maritime provinces. The problem is, there are very few jobs. To see some properties there, really cheap, check out www.mls.ca

    Yup, Canada is a big place with relatively few people... lots of cheap space if you're willing to live 40 minutes from nowhere.

    have fun,

    I had ruled out Canada, but those pictures and the the others he had listed on his site are so beautiful and the prices can't be beat. I may be taking it under considerable contemplation.

    Gerry: Always glad to mention your site. You've had a bunch of places I'd love to own if I had a better relationship with winter weather, but snow and wheelchairs dont get on real well. :p But if I ever won the lottery, I'd think about a few canadian acres as a cool place to spend the summer.

    Yeah its remote and maybe the jobs are lousy but if you are about to retire with a decent pension, Canadian land sure does give you a nice bang for your buck.
    simple groceries and a good garden and the luck of the hunt and you could do alright. The scenery alone would do a lot to sustain body and soul.
