    building an LPPM - a large property perimeter monitor. A datalogging intrusion monitor for a 12 acre ranch. I had it up and running, until I added one circuit module too many. I took it apart to screw everything down, ran into "analysis paralysis" - the inability to choose the one best way to do it - and let it rest too long. I'm back to it and moving again.

    west of the mississippi, anyone with more than a quarter acre, with a cat or a dog, calls that a ranch. it was a farm, until a flood made it into a gravel pit. a second flood actually replenished the gravel pit, with about 35,000 yards of silt and gravel.

    we call it the Rocking G. the ranch hands are 2 hippy burnouts and one high tech burnout. make that 2 type Z personalities and one endlessly frustrated Type A personality.

    no barn, no tractor, I'm sorry to say. livestock is quail, rabbits, owls, ravens, and way too many mice.

    half mile off road vehicle race track, quarter mile rifle range, archery and pellet gun ranges.

    $425 a month to rent the house and have the run of the property.

    im west of the Mississippi... 12 acres means you have “land”...... 1000+ acres is a ranch.... city people may call it a “ranch” but if you have no machinery, no livestock. It’s not a ranch

    Probably working. In the last two months I believe the only time off was because of the holidays. That's two days off for Christmas and one day for New year's..

    Ranchers are pretentious asses with bumper stickers that say "And on the 8th day God created ranchers to look over and protect the land" on their diesel crew cab long bed duallies, which they park with the tailgate open sticking out over Route 380 because they won't park around the corner and waddle an extra 100 feet

    Calling 12 acres a ranch implies "... and the horse you rode in on"
