Waiting for Real Estate Prices to crash

Ram Island, Saco Bay, Maine. I found this house on an island off the coast of Maine for $555,000. I figure that in six months I can pick it up for $350K. I would add solar and a windmill and renovate it to be livable all year round. I would make a trip to the mainland (about a mile) every two weeks for food and supplies and other than that would not have to worry who was president.

I’d have to find out if I could get water and heating oil delivered. I might have to buy a used lobster boat to get the big stuff onto the island.

The cats would like it, although I might have to stock it with chipmunks and plant a few trees.

Any visitors would have to swim about a mile, unless they could rent a boat. I’d have to set up satellite internet service. I wonder if I could steal wifi with a good dish antenna at that distance.

There is a web page devoted to Ram Island with some great history and pictures

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.

Enjoy!
