No Sale

As I was finishing my lunch today, there was a knock at the door. A man driving by asked me about the Chinook RV parked out back and offered to buy it from me. I explained that I need it for work. He asked how much it would take to sell it to him today. I named a figure about 3x what Lisa paid for it, on account of if I sold it, we'd still have to do something about the times I work in the Bay Area. (Whether we'd buy another RV I don't know.) It was, as I expected, too much, and after trying to offer to buy Lisa's travel trailer (I didn't even bother making an offer; Lisa would kill me), he shook my hand and moved on.

This isn't the first time people have come by here trying to buy our vehicles and property. I only wish one of the people making cold offers on the property in Challenge would follow through on their offers. You want a piece of land with a house (albeit a derelict one that will need to be completely rebuilt) in the Sierra Nevada foothills? I'll sell it to you for a really low price. If you think it's impossible to buy real estate cheaply in California, you're only looking at the urban areas, and most of California isn't really urban.
