Hi jwaters... I presume there is a lot of rock and other nasty stuff down there?
I'm looking at one of those 40 acre packages about 10 miles out of Winnemucca and my original plan was to just borrow a friends portable rig, tow it down from Twin Falls and do the job with a couple of friends (and a lot of beer)
However, IF there is indeed a lot of rock and nasties down there, that little red thing he has probably would take six months to go down ten feet.
IF that is the case, and IF I go ahead and buy the property, You will probably hear from me.

Are you in the yellow pages there?

Wells will go about 20-30 bucks a foot.

Septic and wells will reflect local economics.

Be careful in those north of Reno Valleys. A lot of water up around Palamino Valley was contaminated from the old rocket engine testing facility there. and a lot of water contains natural contaminates like arsenic etc.

Don't shy away from the valley, just make sure you are getting good water. Your best bet would be to buy an existing home with the stuff already in and functioning.

Jerryclick, I think what you are looking at is Poverty Flats, sure it is called something fancy by the realtors, but, it is Poverty Flats. Be careful, make sure your road is usable all year round, that alkalai soil makes for really bad mud. Be even more careful of your neighbors. There are some "characters" out there, some with serious weaponry.

That area is where Claude Dallas was run down, if you do not know who he is, he is worth reading about. You will find that he is a sort of folk hero to some, in Poverty Flats.

AHA! Good information! My wife is a Native Nevadan and she wants nothing to do with that area. Now I know what she doesn't want to tell me.
BTW, the Realtors are calling it "Paradise Ranchos."

You nailed it. I actually looked at it, it took me about 5 minutes to figureout, that is not where I want to be. What I would like is, 100,000 acres in Paradise Valley.

Are Lovelock, Stillwater, Unionville, and Perishing Counties safe places to buy land for homesteading? How much is it to drill a well in these areas?

All information above is true!! People have been ripped off out there. Some of the land in those areas don't have water rights to drill a well. Then some have disclosures** to drill only a limited feet down- meaning even if you wanted to put a nice 3,000 sqft home on it - your septic would only be approve for cabin size. Of course they still sell all those acres but not much can be put on them. Every now and then you see one with a small shack on it already --- where someone previously bought to just get away to when they were upset with their wife or someone. But not worth it because it ends up back on the market once reality sets in.
