Wherever it is can't be too far. Only takes five hours to drive from one corner of the state to the opposite corner.

That is God's country. It is incredibly rural but some of the most beautiful country you will ever see. Long and winding roads make for great motorcycle rides. Two things you must take the time to see while you are in that part of the state:
1. Buffalo National River - the first National River to be designated in the U.S.
2. Boxley Valley - just for the view and the elk that tend to roam in the open there

Jasper is about 75 miles from Fayetteville so about an hour and half given the curvy roads.

Thanks for the tips, I'll have to ask if they've seen those. They bought property there (I think like 50 acres) a few years ago. Due to the poor economy (especially here in FL) they have been unable to sell their property here. I think they are getting to the point where they are going to give it away just to get out of here. They no longer like it here (central florida has become crazy crowded) and they like being away from the commotion lol. So I guess they bought in the right area, huh?

That doesn't sound too far. We will be there for about a week, and riding for much of it (my father in law and myself). We will probably ride for about 2 days at least, certainly within reach for that brewsky

Tell your parents to check into the reverse mortgage if they qualify, the bank will basically pay them monthly untill they are paid the full amount of the value of the house and they keep the house untill the last payment is made, then, if I am correct, They can move and rent the house out and have a dual income... they can hire a company to look after the house and rent it or a family member or they can take a trip back when they change renters or whatever... I dont know what the laws are for all the states but thats something I would do.

If you are going to be in the area that long, we should definitely try to meet. Keep me posted via PM on your schedule and we will work something out. Maybe we can arrange a mini-meet with other members in the area. Bikes and/or trucks, all are welcome.

I used to do that kind of work all the time (was a surveyor assistant for a couple of years). I now work with the surveyors on a professional level, so if you still need assistance, send me a PM and I'll get back to you with the answer. If I don't know the answer off the top of my head, I can get it answered in short notice by walking down the hall and sitting down at one of their desks!

A reverse mortgage is where the bank buys the house from you the same way we buy it from them, once they pay it in full it is theirs and the deed goes to the bank and they own the house. I dont know all the fine print or rules as they differ state to state but worth just checking into and if all else they can just keep it as a rental/timeshare if they want to deal with it.

I have heard stories people swapping houses, trading for something of equal value ( farm equipment, vehicles...ect... ) There are people here trading homes for trucks...But by far, the reverse mortgage is the best way to go, not only do they get the value of the house but interest as well, if its still structured the same since the housing crisis?
Doesnt hurt to look into it.

Well I think the biggest problem is that it is a large piece of property in central florida, where everyone wants 1/8 acre lots with cookie cutter homes. To have someone manage it as a rental and maintain it would cost a fortune. I've offered to keep it up if they decided to leave now and leave it empty while trying to sell it, but they said they don't want to do that.

I'd buy it if I could afford it, it's a nice piece of land and the whole house is redone within the last 5 years.
