Polaris And Honda 4 Wheelers $2500 For Both


Recommended Posts

We just discovered progress is about to run us over, so we're going to sell the place we've called home for 35 years. Because of that, I'm going to get rid of some items at ridiculous prices. My '99 Polaris 325 Magnum 4x4 in great condition. Mostly used to spray weeds around the place. Really nice machine, and all original, and it all works. Also, my wife's 2001 Honda 250 recon 2x4. I need them gone, so both for $2500. Also the Coot 4x4, articulated, amphibious ATV I put 400 hours into last winter. First $5,000 takes that. Almost everything on it is new. That $5000 is exactly what I have in it...none of my labor. Located near Blackfoot, in southeastern Idaho.

Thanks, Bob. The good thing about this is I'm nearing 75, and we've been talking for several years about my getting too old to care for this 3 acre place. This is making us get off our backsides, and get the downsizing done, at  last. We'd have had to do it at some point anyway. Better now, when we have the energy.

Hi Jim, I don,t think you are  old I sold our 160 acre ranch and vineyard in Kalifornia, because its Kalifornia. Moved to a forty acre ranch in Arizona 2 years ago I am 74. So much less to do here all the landscaping is cactus and the rest of the land is pinyon and Juniper. The vineyard was 24/7 work. Now its 24/7 recreation, nugget hunting, shooting, and fishing. I understand having too much to take care of but it was my fault because I had to take care of everything I developed.  Make sure your move is to your happy place and have a good life!

LOL..."into the tropics"??? Do you honestly think I'd leave the Rockies, Jason? Not much chance of that. And I'm not the kind of person to sit on the porch with a drink in my hand, either. We haven't decided what we're going to do. We're thinking about the Challis, Idaho area. They brag on having 300+ days of sunshine/year. And the temps in the winter are about like Blackfoot. Also, land is dirt cheap. Downside is not much medical care, and only one grocery store.  But the Salmon River runs right through there, and Hiway 93, and it's 40 miles closer to Boise, where our grandkids and family are located. And mountains all around, with gold/silver mines, etc., and good access to all my old mountain haunts. So that's a good possibility. But farther from Wyoming, my second-favorite state.  I could stay near Blackfoot, too, if we could find the right place. Right now we are getting everything outside cleaned up, and then start work on the inside. My basement man cave is a disaster area. I'm like a mad scientist into electronics, mechanics, machining, equipment design, gem faceting, etc. Add to that a "slob" about neatness, and 37 years of accumulation, and you can imagine what my laboratory looks like...LOL. So, most of my current projects are now on indefinite hold until we get this deal sorted out....life sucks, and then you die...Ha!

Never know... I'm taking the first ship off this planet to Mars if such a thing happens before I die. 😄

Well good luck with the move, I know how that lab chaos goes... there is an underlying order to the chaos.

LOL....yeah....about 30 years ago, in a spare few days, one of my employees took it upon himself to clean and neaten the shop. Took me 3 months to find my tools when I wanted one.

Not much chance of that, Mark. You, and the rest of the guys, are like my extended family. Having 'net access is an absolute, wherever we go. And please stop calling me "sir"....I work for a living, or did...LOL
