I've looked at house prices in western NC and note that a down payment here could own a house outright there. A house with an acre, i note.

I find myself speculating: buy a house on an acre, plant a grove of pecans (Cape Fear and Gloria Grande). Maybe a few black walnut. It's not really ideal pecan climate now, but one could bet on global warming. Rent the place. Let the trees grow to fruiting stage. Retire and harvest pecans.
