    I have a good 2' clearance, if I stay on the centerline, and I always crowd the opposite side so 3'4' clearance. IF I crowd the near side....it is close. I've had a Maule pilot clear it easily,what the heck, here's the vid.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bwpVWDk2txc Just re-watched it, I see he took off below the pole, but I know another time he taxied up to the upper staging area/parking lot. That tower is anchored with 6 yards of concrete, 8' deep, so I'm not afraid of tipping the wind turbine over if I do snag it. That's a grid tied 2.5 KW turbine, and between it and the windsock at the bottom of the strip, I get great wind info. If I am arriving and see the sock saying it's dead calm, but the turbine is spinning, that gives me a heads up that the thermals are popping and to be extra cautious on final.

    This is so true. Glad our place has radiant floors in the hangar! (Although I usually have on flip-flops...)

    Good stuff, Stewart.

    I would add that no matter where you want to buy or rent - check out your neighbors. Every field has what we termed in the Marine Corps the "10-percenter." If you have ten folks on the field, one of them is going to be a sh--bird. Never seen it not happen! Take the time to meet/interview the neighbors on both sides, and talk at length with the field manager about benefits AND "gotcha's."

    Research and read the covenants and easements - there are frequently surprises therein.

    Find out if there is formal maintenance or just everybody pitching in as needed.

My home insurer took no exception to anything when they inspected the property, and they did come out and look. Even with a big fuel tank in an attached lean-to. That was a pleasant surprise.

    One bit of advice? Pay attention to homeowner or user fees for the runway maintenance. They may be part of a homeowner association fee or they may be in addition to. My neighbors get wound up about that. To me the fee is less than I was paying the State to park one airplane at Lake Hood so I'm not unhappy, but fees are fees and you ought to know how they're determined and how they're spent.

    Depending on where you are looking, word of mouth is frequently productive. Put out the message on various forums and perhaps at some fields owner groups.
    That's how we happened upon our hangar-apartment. It was never "on the market," per se. Seller contacted me through this forum after I put up a posting expressing interest in a geographic area.

    Judy honey, you've waited long enough, after thirty eight years I'm building you a garage and yes it will be attached to the house.
    No I won't store equipment, tools or other stuff in it, it will be your own space separated from my space.
    You don't have to thank me, you deserve it!

    From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be
    found in all corners of the earth."

    Then he made the earth round... and He laughed and laughed and laughed!

    My wife and I are putting our house on the market soon. Not sure where we will end up. I’m still working at PAX River, my one DAR is out of Baltimore FSDO, and the other is out of the New Cumberland MIDO, so likely stay in the PA, DE, MD, VA, WV area but not ruling other areas out. Want to get away from the MD taxes and I’d like to have a hangar right next to the house. Would prefer a grass strip rather than paved.
