About 6 years ago I was handed a lake house property at the Lake of the Ozarks in mid MO from my mom. They built this place in the mid 70's and my dad has since passed and my mom can't take care of it anymore. I have been involved with the property since day 1. Helped with the construction etc. I'm the only one in my family that has really given a rats grits about it out of 3 other siblings. That's why I got it. The lake has really become a hell-hole because of the popularity. It's very dangerous to get on the water. Someone will die on every major weekend because of boating accidents. I have spent most of my life there and I don't like it anymore. The attitude is to see who has the bigger d@#$. It's no fun anymore as it used to be. I have about 30k in this place now and a wondering if I should sell out. The question is, there are 2 docks that need new foam by next year at 3k each (min) because of changing lake regulations and probate questions because of how the the deed was registered in my parents name if I should sell. I probably won't recover what I have in it to pay my mom off, but it's been in the family for years and it's headache. To keep it is about $1500 a year so it's not a big deal, but upcoming cost are a problem and I don't like it. I go there to be amongest the jackasses because I live in the boondocks and it makes no sense to me. My kids haven't experienced the lake like I have when I was growing up, but I don't think they are missing much. I would appreciate some feedback on this because I get mixed ideas on this here at home. The property is not worth it to me but I don't want to short change my kids about the fun I have had there. It's not the same!
