So the wife...

... and I are thinking about buying a new vacation home. Just out of curiosity which would you buy? Keep in mind she loves the Pacific northwest and I just prefer to be south. Opinions and comments please.

Personally I would go with the washington location. I have always loved that area, a lot of forest and rain and I love them both.

I like the elvis house, it gives you a sense like you traveled back in time. The underground base is a little far out for my tastes.:2cents:

Too far north and too far east. Can't have both of those.

Just as a point of interest, back in the winter of '80-'81 I managed a missle silo quite like that on in North Dakota. They actually are a cool place to live.

Why am I not overly suprised? That Penn. property is awesome, makes the owner $344,000 A year...

IF you can afford it I would go for the Estate but the missle base would be cool. You wouldnt have to worry about North Korea or Iran now would you?

Speaking as a woman. I'd take the Missile base.

You could probably just hose the floors down instead of scrubbing on all fours.

missile base, if you got the other estate everyone will think your a rich yuppie bastard. If you tell them you have a missile base they won't F*** with you, and think its cool.:thumbs:

But then again, if some kids got in there and spray painted it, it would be pretty easy to take over. You need an army.

I say you skip out on both and instead buy an island... like come on, why not :wink2:

They do have small (really small) ones on eBay.. or atleast they do sometimes.

Why is that scary? At the time I was nuke certified, they needed someone to take the position temporarily on short notice and it wasn't like I had my finger on the button or anything. I managed the facility, NORAD managed the big fella inside of it.

Besides, now some non-paying kids have gotten hold of the auction and it's over $30 million.

What would your choice be speaking as a man?


Anyway hobo, I vote for the missle base. You might be able to set up your own 1/4 mile strip.
