JD Seller- Some of your advice comes off a little harsh which I'm sure is not your intention, and I'm not taking it that way either. I do appreciate your helpful advice.
Those vehicle loans were when I was younger and they were used vehicles, haven't had any loan for a few years now and plan to keep it that way.
I admit I don't have lots when it comes to farming experience. Mostly providing extra labor on the farms of friend's parents, cousin's farms, and for a few years I was baling a few acres of hay by myself with less than quality equipment. Not enough experience to amount to much I know.
My degree is in criminal justice and I'm also working on getting my FF1 and EMT certifications through the vol. fire department I'm on. Public safety can be a very good paying stable career ONCE you get in it.
I agree land is extremely high priced right now and at some point these prices will not be able to sustain themselves. I don't see myself moving out of state, I like Iowa. When I do buy land I plan to live the rest of my days there. I have no intention of dividing/selling small lots, I don't want lots of folks living close by.
Like lots of others who posted on this you say I should hold off until more of the variables are figured out. I agree and that's what I'll do. Thanks again.
