I am one of 8 siblings living on the west coast of Washington state...from Portland, OR to Bellingham! Our last family gathering at Beacon Rock State Park gathered 50 of us and that wasn't all of us! We've dreamed of having our own place to have our gatherings and live/retire together. We are attempting to get serious about the dream and 5 of us siblings, along with spouses, etc., will be meeting in Elma, WA to look at property in that area. We are hoping to find 20-40 acres and we can pay up to about $150K. What I am looking for in this group is all sorts of brainstorming ideas...current co-ops, property listings...other resources! Thanks!
