Still planning to come for a visit. Am working (CG Host) with a gal who lives in Truth or Consequences NM, up here (MN) for the summer visiting her Mom. We've been discussing the ranch! Looking forward to a visit if not this Fall, next year for sure. Glad to hear sales are picking up, that bodes well for the ranch.

 

If you get here, make sure you drop by our lot, #5.

I just looked through the available sites there and to me, it looks like there are some good bargains to be had. 

There are some good deals. The lower priced lots have no or very little improvements, while there is one lot going up for sale, because the owners are quitting the RV lifestyle, that has a large casita and will be priced over 20K.

I wonder what months of the year are most livable at The Ranch.  At some point,  settling in for most of the time with very short trips out, the weather would be important.  It doesn't appear to get as hot in the summer as the Tucson area, but it does seem to get colder in the winter.  How doable would almost year round be for when I'm like 102 and not up to traveling that much?  I am aware that these days the weather anywhere can be all over the place.   Trying to look at the long term is extremely challenging, like a real hard math problem with a "variable" that can't be determined.  

Cathy, this area is livable all year. It does get hot in the summer, but it has that famous "dry" heat and while it does freeze, most winters are very mild, but I have heard some of the old-timers talk about that "one" winter that had snow and temperatures in the teens for several days. If that ever happens again, I hope I'm not here but lounging South Texas.

If one makes the effort, there are pictures of all of the lots. Even though there was an RV on each when the picture was taken, it still gives a pretty good idea of what is there.

Will be stopping in around Nov 25 for 4-5 nights. Doing a SW tour after a convention in Nashville...heading to the RGV, San Antonio, New Mexico and AZ before returning to MN for tax season. Looking forward to shortening up our winter a bit. 🤗

You'll be getting here when most of the leaseholders have returned and the park will be quite full.  Call just before you arrive to make sure there's a spot for you. If not, the boondock area is available or KOA is three miles down the road. Our semi-annual meeting is on 7 November...that's when some new board of directors are elected and voting by the membership happens for any changes or big expenditures. Safe travels.

Thanks for the "heads up". Boondock area will work fine. Looking forward to checking out the ranch.

Also, Todd, DON'T, what every you do, take 285 from Pecos, TX to Carlsbad, NM. The road is EXTREMELY rough and just about takes an off road vehicle to navigate it.

I was planning on doing exactly that. You saved me! I'll have to postpone my visit to a time when I have the time and inclination to drive another route. I prefer to stay on I-10 from TX to AZ. Heading up to Mesa from RGV.

There are several other roads from I-20 that will connect to US HWY 180/62 into Carlsbad, NM. It's a little longer, but we usually travel through Odessa to Seminole to Carlsbad. Ft Stockton to Pecos is even worse.

BIGTEXREX:  Thank you for the info that you have provided.  I met someone last week from the Carlsbad area which renewed my interest.  

Cathy, just to let you know, we're down to five lots for sale. I predict that sometime in 2019 we'll have a waiting list.

Wow!  Well, if we don't end up with a lot (and looks like our son may just have found his future home, so we may be real serious about finding something soon), I am glad for The Ranch.  BigTexRex, you have been such an awesome source of information on The Ranch.  Previously, I could find very little info.  Got a product?  Got to let people know about it.  Thank you again.

No available lots are listed on the website anymore.  One has to call the office during business hours to learn which (I'm guessing if any) lots are available.

Yes, almost all lots have sold. I believe lot 31 and 84 are still on the market and soon lot 17 will be for lease, but I'm away from the Ranch and I don't know if that's 100 percent fact. I predict by the end of this year there will be a waiting list and that list will continue to grow for the next few years due to several factors. I feel fortunate that I was able to "buy" in when I did.

Thanks for update, Big Tex.  I am disappointed that we were not able to get to The Ranch when lots were readily available, but tied up here where we are trying to work out things for our son.  Oh well, if it were meant to be, I guess we would have gotten there.  First things first.

Family is always first...when you're ready, I'm sure there will be a lot available.

Sorry that I did not see your post earlier. Yes, there are currently two lots up for lease...60 and 15. You may want to call the office for the exact prices, but I believe lot 15 is between 12-15K and Lot 60 is between 17-18K. Of course these prices are negotiable.

I found the asking lease price for the lots.  Lot 15 = $13,491.36, and lot 60 = $17,000. If you want to know more information about lot 15 you can call the "agent", Marilyn, at 432-770-5134. You'll need to call the office for more info on lot 60 or me (940-232-0846).
