Say what you want about

Filed under:General — eric @ 2:50 am

Say what you want about Ted Turner, he spends at least some of his money admirably. He buys huge tracts of land and then “gets out of nature’s way.” I did some work on Ted’s recent New Mexico aquisition, several hundered thousand acres along the Rio Grande south of Socorro and north of the Elephant Butte reservior, a few years back. I was surveying for a power line to serve a new visitor’s center for an old Army fort that sat on land surrounded by Turner’s ranch. The power line was several miles long, some overhead lines hidden from view by a ridge and the rest underground. The ranch had a sizable herd of bison, who liked to stare at me while I did my survey work, not quite sure of what they thought of me there among them.
