A while back I wrote about Looking for Land and Buying our Land in the Adirondack Mountains. With 30 acres purchased our next mini-goal was to get our hands on an ATV so we could get around on the land and well, have some fun!
After searching the internet high and low for a used ATV, we decided on what we really wanted in an ATV but we just couldn't find one in our price range to buy.
What we wanted...
After deciding the bare minimum with respect to what we wanted, we continued to search to no avail. However, we spread the word and waited patiently for the right opportunity.
That opportunity finally came around in May when family friends decided to sell their ATV after they moved. They had mostly used it to plow their driveway but no longer needed it after they moved.
For us this meant that we got an ATV that was well maintained and not used and abused. Bonus for us!
What we got...
Being an older model, it also has a bonus pull-start on it...just in case...though my husband states that he hopes he never needs to use it!
A quick wash, an oil change, new brake pads, a rear master cylinder, and an added back seat and its is P.E.R.F.E.C.T.
We couldn't be happier with our used ATV!
This was just a small step...
Our Next Big Step?

Hi there! I'm Kathie, the author behind Creating A Simpler Life blog. I'm excited to share our longterm projects (and planning) toward building our future retirement homestead in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. In the meantime I will be sharing all the other little things we do that are part of creating our simpler life!
