Really, I'd love to live in the outback, on a 100-200 acre property, with a few hundred head of cattle, a few horses a dog, and a big ass 4X4.

but i would love a cottage on the base of the rocky mountains. just me, my girl, my kids, a dog named Trigger, a pickup truck and a hunting rifle. thats all i want.

i cant stand the city anymore. life goes by too fast here. i just want to calm down, relax, take it slow, and enjoy my life.

See what the city has done to me? im 18 and thinking about my retirement.

Suburbs. Landscape company does the their thing on the yard. Big cities are short distances away. Nice 35 mile wooded drive to work. An attached woodshop if I feel like working on furniture design. Big screen if I don't.

i voted "i cant decide" because i want to live in a house with lots of land around it, like out in the country, but not a farm.

Well I grew up on a large property in the Adelaide hills, and then I worked a while boundry riding and jackarooing at Anna Creek Station, so I'm used to wide open spaces. I love the country. Just as a quick reference, Anna Creek Station is a cattle station in the Far north of SA. It's 34,000 square Km, or 6 million acres in other words. That equals out to be a hell of a lot of space, compared to the largest cattle "ranch" in the US which I've been told is only 3,000 sq km.

So yeah, a big rural property is my ultimate choice.

The King Ranch is supposed to be the biggest "ranch" in Texas at about 3,367 sq km. It's not a true ranch anymore.

Today's King Ranch has diversified and grown into a major agribusiness corporation, with interests in cattle ranching and feedlot operations, farming (cotton, grain, sugar cane, and sod), citrus groves, commodity marketing and processing, and recreational hunting. Its retail operations include luggage and leather goods, farm equipment, commercial printing, and tourism. And the oilfields which the owners dislike but put up with it.

The XIT was 6,000,000 acres but was sold to the State for a Capital if Texas split into 6 separate States.

I think the problem is that you need different sorts of places at different times of your life. So your answer will always be affected by your age
