(and necessary). our place is near everett, wa. my partner is great with things mechanical (from operating/fixing diesel dozers to repairig watches) and he's an excellent cook to boot. i can sell ice in alaska and sand in the desert. we have a large spread of land, work hard (and have fun doing it) and are looking for folks who're neither afraid of hard work nor of trying sometimes crazy ideas to make an honest buck (or two, or three) and who would like to partner with us for more fun and profit. so far, i've posted "have land, lack kowledge" on this site and similar messages on other sites but sadly, have had no serious nibblers. i've sent pm's to some respondents but am still waiting for answers. maybe people think this is a joke (it isn't) - there's plenty of well-heeled folks out there anxious to part with their greenbacks for something they think they need/want. anybody in this area interested? by the way, this is not a disguised "lonely hearts" message - i'm not looking for guys who like quiet times in front of the fire, long walks in the woods (i immediately fall asleep in front of the fire because i'm (good) tired and when i walk through our woods i look for stuff that other people might like to have (and pay for). interested?
