    Run fast and far from this "um great offer" IMO. In illinois, near Indian sacred grounds = protected land, near 3 rivers = potential federal and state regulations, 1000 acre park = if state declared park = lots of regulations and people with access. Your money and time may get you squat in the end and state and or federal lawsuits if you ever move a clump of dirt or clear out a ditch / creek, cut a tree/bush. The list of can not do's could be endless.

Nevermind, I am not interested in giving my land to paranoid preppers. Am looking for spiritual people with more faith than fear. People with ag skills who would rather till a garden than load a weapon.

    ???? - you don't bother to introduce yourself and are now telling members what they think and how they should act ....

    get some prepper credibility ....

    you can take your posting elsewhere ......

It also has a warmer climate zone - 6A. Am growing figs, almonds, pomgranites. Hardly any neighbors.
    1000 acres is not very big, especially for a state park. (640 acres - 1 section, per square mile.) The cattle ranch we live on is microscopically small, by cattle ranch standards, and it is 16 sections.

    He's trying to dump a useless piece of property he bought without checking on it berfore he bought. At least he is being up front about it if you know what your really buying.

    I still say run away, it more trouble than it's worth.

    Yep. I just sold a 42 acre lot of riverfront and 40% of it is designated protected wetlands. Can't do ANYTHING to the 40%, and the other 60% has limitations. Pretty much good to build a small gentleman's ranch on, that's it. No subdividing, no second septic. Happened to make 5X investment only because we had it for 25 years and the population in the area expanded out to meet our property.

    I'm giving you the benefit of doubt here and assuming you are on the up and up. Just a piece of advice. I would look for someone you know AND trust. The scenario @Slippy gave you could be quite real in today's world. There are some, shall we say, untrustworthy people out there.

    Go with what and who you know.

    If you can lure up any cute Hippy Chicks with hairy pits..pretty sure Uncle Slippy would not mind coming for a visit. Just guessing of course. Probably depends on what Mrs. Slippy has to say about that.

    I plan on staying where I'm at until I die, I even have a plan to build a mausoleum for myself where I'm at. I wish you good luck in your search though. Pomegranates in IL? I'm intrigued. Have they yielded anything yet? I thought they wouldn't grow in your climate zone. I have heard legends of extremely frost resistant pomegranates from a vet friend who was in Afghanistan but I thought the genetics weren't in the US yet? Getting a small spherical bomb shaped object through customs seemed to be the main issue.
