It's fun to dream.  Just to be a realist, I can't imagine how much it would
cost to refurbish and then maintain the tower if it is usable or how much it
would cost to remove it if it isn't.

This would seem to be the location if the real estate map is anywhere near
close.  Odd, not all the way at the top of the hill... and not far from a
rather large bog... can anyone say noseeums??


is funny, the ms live earth satellite photos don't line up right in that
area.  And the google earth satellite is pretty bad also.  Probably not much
call for survey info up that way.
