Going to keep this moving today. File tag from last weekend.

Can't see the dilapidated house in the background here, but it is behind the trees. Pyramid scemes, fraud, and now prison.


Major clue in the driveway.


"Webb Estate" for the visually impared. $2.3 million dollar clue.

Great Tag! Amazing amount of money that is going down the tubes on this place. Hard to believe that they haven't secured it better.


Unfortunately safe from us this morning

New tag.
Cool accidental find. Lots of old planes around.

Interesting story at least. The guy built a pimp palace, and then vandals destroyed it, squatters moved in, etc. Supposedly the sheriff's dept keeps a close eye on it now. I've heard it's for sale, but it's not officially listed that I can find. Apparently the guys 14 acres crosses the county line, and at least one portion of the land has a lien on it, making it hard for the bank to sell it. I've heard bits and pieces about it. I've heard they've been offered around half a million for it. But honestly, I don't see it. The house is pretty much completely shot to hell at this point. You'd be looking at a complete rebuild. You'd only be buying the land.

Apex. Thought I'd better leave one somewhere other than Hillsborough/Rougemont for a change!

We were riding around Range Road checking every now and then figuring it was going to end up nearby before too long.
