Foxhole Acres has acquired 39.65 Acres on the southwest end of Lovelock, Nevada.
From Wikipedia: Lovelock is the county seat of Pershing County, Nevada, United States, in which it is the only incorporated city. Formerly a stop for settlers on their way to California and later a train depot, the town’s economy remains based on farming, mining and increasingly on tourism. END Wikipedia
Our notes on the region:
If you’ve seen all the videos of people four-wheeling out in the desert and dreamed of owning your own piece of dirt to do the same, Pershing County could be your spot. You can ride around as fast and loud as you like with no one to bother for miles.
An hour away is the Rye Patch State Recreation Area. There is a large reservoir here with camping, fishing, picnicking, and perhaps a bit of hiking. There is also a saloon, gas station, and pizzeria at the travel center in the same location. This would make a great stop on the way North to Burning Man each year.
If you’re a history buff, there is a ton to learn and study here from old mining settlements to local museums. Legend has it Lovelock cave even used to contain the mummified remains of gigantic Natives with Red Hair. http://otherworldmystery.com/ancient-red-haired-giants-in-l…
A few parcels over is the remains of Humboldt Intermediate Airfield which was a ‘sod’ triangular landing strip further back than the 1940s. The patch can still be seen today. (see photos). Also nearby is the Humboldt Wildlife Management Area.
Maybe you just want a spot where you can get away from it all and not see another person for miles. At 35 minutes from the nearest town with amenities, no one is going to come knocking on your door. Even zombies would likely rather not roam this far from town. Great place to survive the apocalypse, and with the nearest road a few acres away, you’ll never look out your window to see someone turning around in your driveway again.
All in all though, the Buena Vista Valley is a gorgeous area with views of beautiful snow-capped mountains and plenty of wildlife roaming the area. You might even decide to bring a bit of your own and open a horse ranch. With AMR zoning, the possibilities for use of the land are wide open and nearly unlimited.
