The construction/landscaping machines have been going constantly the last three days. They have scraped the top soil off that field which has probably been there 200 years at least and it looks like they made the beginning of a bowl. I am assuming for a small lake, they also have been stacking the removed earth on down past the right side of the above picture making a berm or what I imagine is a raised road area for better drainage to get trucks and such down past the tree line without a lot of mud. Probably putting a dam in the lower section to get them past the low drainage area and into the back field. I am guessing they purchased about 40 or 50 acres all told.
I know there is another farm not too far beyond the brushy/tree lower area with another smaller field in between. I am not sure how far that property actually goes back to the right but I know just down in those trees there is a small pond already and I figure maybe 100 to 150 yards further to the right a natural creek bad between this property and another farm.
The question I am asking myself is this going to be a single family mansion estate type of thing or a new subdivision? I could live with some old rich couple moving in to get away from the cities. A new subdivision might just make my already over pressured head explode.
The entire frontage you see here which is about one third the total length along this gravel road is also the same length as my hay field. My frontage includes a power line easement who spray the road edge every Summer so I do not bother to mow along the gravel. Until recently there has never been more than 3 vehicles use that road per day to even bother with it. Now it's like a major highway.
I still have no clue what is going on there to be honest or who bought the property.
If this turns out to be some subdivision venture I am going to take every old tractor, truck, trailer, implement and car I have around the place, plus probably buy a few old junk vehicles and begin filling my hay field up right across the road from where they are making an entrance. I will then put in a hand painted sign that reads...

The price lots have been selling around here I bet I could cost these scum bags a few hundred thousand in profit before it's over if I do that.
If it is some family or whatever that just wants some land, well I can agree with that and understand. I just don't want to see a bunch of houses go up over there.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
