  •  Thanks. It's not quite remote but it is (3+ / 0-)

    quite wooded.  It is a row of about 12 lakefront houses on a dead end road.  Two way traffic is mostly about yielding at the nearest 'wide spot'.  One of the many things Dad blew off doing here is maintaining a 'fire safe' removal of ladder fuels.  It's at the top of the to-do list.

    •  3 houses caught fire after a beach fire (3+ / 0-)

      built too close to the dunes. It burned right up to the housed, destroying one and lots of damage to the others. A couple years ago a neighbor a block over had the same thing happen. We have a volunteer fire department, adding many precious minutes to dispatch. Ive called the police to report a fire too close to vegetation (has to be 25 feet) This is high fire season in the west, and that tinder dry grass and shrubbery catches fast.

      Like our beach house, the value of your property is the land. Can't replace the tongue  and groove cedar my dad handpicked, or years of pictures and stuff.
