Buford, Wyoming, population 1 — and for sale! Town “mayor” (in your own town, you can be anything you want!) Don Sammons is planning to auction off the whole kit and caboodle next month.
Bidding starts at $100,000, and the lucky winner will get not just the rural expanse, but its somehow-turning-a-profit trading post, too, reports Yahoo! News.
The local ad for the forthcoming auction reads, “Unique opportunity to acquire an entire town, along with the Buford Trading post, an income-producing convenience and fuel store. Included in the auction are 10+/- acres of land, five buildings including a 3-bedroom home, United States post office boxes, plow and three vehicles. There is also a Union Wireless cellular tower with lease, and parking area previously used by an overnight shipping company for nighttime trailer switches.”
Just imagine what you could do with all that! Überprivate vacation spot — why be a Branson and own your own island when Wyoming is so much easier to get to? You get the best parking space every single day. At last, you could pee freely. You could do nearly anything freely. You could breed hamsters and ferrets together, letting them live as God never intended — and who would stop you? The police? YOU ARE THE POLICE. You’re also the volunteer fire department, though. And you’re the local press. You could publish your own newspaper and have every headline read “I’M THE GODDAMN MAN.”
More importantly, does it come with the guy? Can you and Don be friends? I hope so; he looks like a sweet dude. Seriously, the possibilities are endless. How could you not jump at this chance? Just think of how much meth you could cook. Right? Am I right? #breakingbadseason5spoiler
