I understand the the lots were originally subdivided for Don's kids.
Some were interested, others weren't. There were 2 lots for sale at the
time of our purchase. They are both sold now. There are a total of
10 lots around the outside of the loop, with a 7 acre 'common area' in the
center of the loop. It's available for use by the 10 owners and their
