I had walkednthe land already and I knew the land was completely over grown with cedar trees so thick that you could hardly walk, and the house she spoke of had burned to the foundation many years prior. She said that a neighbor was running cows on the property, which he wasn't. I took her "no" as a solid answer. About a year later, I learned that she had sold the land to the neighbor for what I had offered her for the land. That guy owes me a thank you, because he bought the land at 1/3 the value. I had thought of flying to AZ with a check and a contract, but thought I would just be wasting my time because she had already said no. I regret this failure all the time. My point is this, maybe in a couple weeks, find and excuse to stop by her house, maybe bring her a homemade desert, and let her know you still want to search the lot if she changes her mind. Hard to say no, face to face.
Ok. But in-so-far as md'ing ........ how does this interesting story play-in ?

Yep, he will have a lock on the widow voters.
