In Armstrong County, Texas, about 25 miles southeast of Amarillo. My wife grew up in the Panhandle, east of Amarillo. The land out there is great – rolling hills, grass in springtime, lots of red dirt, Palo Duro Canyon.
The land I missed out on is a bit more than 12,000 acres. Deer, stock tanks, fences, windmills. And a big thing – three miles of Prairie Dog Fork of the Red River runs through the center of the place.
Yep. Missed out.
The place sold for $8.2 million. I would have been a little more than short on available cash, and I’m not sure how much a bank would loan on income derived from Army retirement and Social Security.
