    Good luck with that. Nothing is affordable or even available here.

    Beautiful area. My kid brother lived there for a few years.
    Realtor.ca lists 25 vacant properties for sale there. Prices from $65,000 - $299,000.

    I like Jaffrey, the properties for sale seem more like a stepping stone, to build and flip with the value of sale being considerably higher with a home on the land. But not for homesteading offgrid. Still being in the area would be great.

    This is so true, we renovated and flipped in Kelowna this year. But to tie up funds in another flip home. Could mean loosing out on that acreage if one pops up.

    I wonder about that.
    To maintain a gold claim you have to prove that you are in fact working the claim and that you have made some money.
    I don't think there is anything about living.
    I reckon you probably can't have a homestead on it with a farm, but you could live on it.
    I think you are allowed to build a cabin and set up a tent.
    Many people who worked the claims live there full time.
    But we have to define what "living" means.
    - When someone takes away your right to defend yourself, you are a victim.
    When you take away your own right to defend yourself, you are a sheep.
    - We need a study to study the study. If the study that studied the study does not concur with the studied study’s findings, we will need a study to study the study that studied the study.

    We hope to move to Cranbrook in the next few years. Always looking. Found 80 acres up Gold Creek S/E of town for $350K if your leaving the LML that's a bargain!!
    Raw dirt, WT and Elk all over that part of the world!
    Take a kid hunting its more rewarding than shooting an animal yourself!!

    Too much misinformation put out there. Do your research it only takes a few minutes. There are also information bulletins that spell it all out by topic.
