I got some crazy stories from doing this Real estate wholesaling 4 the last 6 yrs. it's insane dealing with these different personalities. Especially with distressed people. Reminds me of that Country song, "I always been crazy but it kept me from going insane"
There was A limping beggar I recruited yrs ago, his named is Bill, He always hung out at Walmart parking lot, he had found me a doz vacant properties and I did a deal on one so I purchased Bill a gorgeous 4 stroke scooter. And I gave him cash, later Bill tells me he had to spend a big chunk of his money to get rid of bed bugs and then he had tickets and his scooter impounded and after he got it out the engine blows up.
Holy crap, what karma gods have you pissed off my friend?
The last few yrs I will still stop and say hi and tell him to find more houses, and giv him 20 buks.
Bill dont have any problems with alcolhol or drugs, he's got clear eyes and good complexion, just now his limp got worse cuz he's in a wheel chair.
Anyways, Bill just sent me a good address, a nice home that's vacant and needs repair with absentee owners.
My favorite type of deal. Distressed property, distressed sellers.
I know there is a lot of deals out there, I'm gearing up, I got my hiking boots on, and a new back pack.
But it's cold out there...

I got rats, no, not the normal sized city dwellers, but a new species I call; Rodent Gigantess., these things look like they got some mad scientist bio engineering and fused with mutant DNA and injected with hyper steroids banned on 7 planets.
There is a city drainage pond across the street, we got a mini bird refuge, gorgeous Canadian geese, and mallards and mud hens, the neighbors cat pulled a catfish out of the pond, we got a pet turtle that was out in the street, I watched a 15 inch garder snake slither thu my yard, I had a red tailed hawk nab a pigeon in my front yard, he flew low for a half block trying to get altitude. Sometimes the city drains the pond and plows the weeds.
Now this is the  beyond insane part, These water fowl have a small mite crawling all over their bodies sucking off of them and probably multiplying at an astounding rate. So small you need a microscope to see them.
Then the duks fly off cuz no water,  these hoards of mites left behind are spawning in the grasses in the warm central Calif weather & start multiplying in biblical proportions. Holy aliens, then they do what they do best, get in the wind and somehow get in my house and suck off the warm blooded tasty biological human..
The pond is only 600 feet from my bedroom window, these micro bugs cud walk here. It's an itchy nuisance, and in a week or 2 they have died or moved on.
They entire city flood property is prob about 5 acres and is fenced. I want to go over there and plant some shade trees w a few picnic tables.
Oh yea, back to the rats from hell. They are on my patio an in the garage getting into my stuff, caught a few with some beefed up spring rat traps & peanut butter. The dog got a few.
I just watched a few vids on YouTube on how to build a trap out of a 5 gal bucket and a roller.
I Made 2, it's on.
Will the rodents and mites win the war against the human? with him using only his crude tools and limited intellect??.

I have made a dent in the rodent population. I've caught nothing in my 5 gallon buckets with a broom stick roller, and the bait glued to the center with peanut butter on the wooden pole is untouched. I thought I might have to grease the pole, (that's wat she said) but I did get 2 large rats with the old style spring traps in the garage, and got 10 in the back yard. I know there are more cuz some traps have the bait missing and the trap is unsprung.
It's a sick obsession I have, these disgusting creatures are stinking up my stuff, including my new bad ass sleeping bag I had inside a plastic bag in the garage.
I've been watching a guy on You Tube that is extremely obsessed with mouse and rat traps. He buys and reviews every trap that he can find. Some of his viewers have invented traps and send them for his review and endorsement. My favorite is an electric one that is the 5 gal bucket type but has an infrared sensor trigger that drops these vermin into the bucket of water.
What's really interesting is You Tube censors the content and he has to obscure the rats dying horrible and graphic deaths of drowning and being electrocuted. I do feel sorry for them, I hate killing them, I want them to go back across the street to the pond and their little burrows.

Anyways back to the real world where it's time to find some real estate deals. I been sending out letters and post cards to my old prospects that never pulled the trigger on my offers.
The time is coming. In a few weeks is when every newbie on the planet starts thinking about doing some real estate deals. I'll place another ad on Craig's List for bird dogs. It only costs 25 buks and  It sometimes pays off big.
I've developed a few other revenue streams that keeps me alive, but I need to slam some wholesaling deals.

I'm sending out mental waves to the Universe to attract some people needing my help to sell their houses. Many insane people believe in this attraction stuff, & believe having a certain mindset attracts wealth and all the other good things. I also believe or I want to. I pulled out some of my self hypnosis lessons I purchased a few yrs ago and I just got som bad ass Bluetooth ear buds.
Meanwhile it's too nice to not be outside, It's been 70 degrees here in central Cal.
Today I lowered the Kayak down from the garage ceiling. It was dusty. I got this boat loaded up, with new GoPro mounts, adjusted my seat and glued an ass pad on to the seat. I glued a GoPro mount on my life jacket, much better than the hat mount when I'm looking in every direction an jerking up the video.
My buddy Jim says were going to Sky Harbor, that's at the upper Millerton Lake where the San Joaquin river empties into the lake, we are going to paddle upstream. I better bring some food an water to take, an maybe a coat.. Sometimes the wind can be a factor especially in these canyons were going to be navigating.
Jim asked me if I wasn't gona chicken out and tell him I'm scared.
Last trip was the lower river and I was scared shipless.
I got the drone batteries charged up and put in some larger capacity Micro SD cards in everything.
I'm ready to have some fun. I will suggest we go below Friant dam where there is about 4 or 5 miles of calm gorgeousness. We can disembark at the picknick grounds an do the wuss tour.
The upper area he tells we gotta hike a 1/4 mile down to the lake cuz of some locked fence. Hold on Jimbo,  cuz we havnt had a lot of rain this year so if the lake is low, we'll hike further. And then we hike uphill with the 70 pound kayaks, we got wheels for them but hey, I'm thinking, Let's start slow and survive.

The kayaking trip was really nice, first we started off at the wuss area and paddled to the dam, there was some current but the kayaks went thru it easily. We seen some gorgeous large white cranes nesting in the huge oak trees and also some assorted ducks and lizards. At the dam the water was being released and we stopped at the rapids and smoked one and then paddled back. Jim suggested we go down stream past the bridge but I knew with the river getting narrow & those rapids we wud never be able to paddle back and it wud be torture to drag these back thru the rocky stream bed.
We did hav to man handle these boats up some stairs to get back up to the parking lot. Then we drove up to the lake to an area called Willards Cove.
Jim was having trouble putting in his code to open the gate, there was a camera pointed at us and Jim held his year pass up and the gate magically started opening. The cove is huge with hundreds of house and speed boats tied up to a long pier. After paddeling a half hour we found another cove with huge boulders and steep cliffs with a sandy beach area, of course we headed straight to that spot and set up our folding camp chairs and brought out the lunch bags and was enjoying the incredible views, the entire lake was devoid of humans cept for a few fishermen trolling by. Jim had parked his butt in the shade and I was a bit cold cuz of the wind coming off the lake and I moved my bony ass to the sunny area where we watched ground squirrels fight over our apple cores and banana peels. I did pick up a beer bottle someone had left. Jim suggested we check out another cove that was around the bend.
The water was clear and it was so wicked to see these huge boulders under the surface. As soon as I got around the bend there was a big beautiful eagle sitting on the shore, I stopped paddling and we were eye to eye and bout 100 feet apart and then he takes flight.
I never liked this lake much cuz in the summer its surrounded by low hills and dead grass, but not now, every hill was green and wild flowers were just starting to emerge. What really blew my mind was when we got back to shore to load up our boats there were bear tracks on the beach, this frikin lake is only 22 miles from the city, the bear paws were as big as my hand and seemed fresh in the shore mud. They were too fat for a dog and had huge claws sticking out an inch. Years ago a mountain lion was hit and killed on the road near there. I've seen coyotes and foxes and deer that low. But nobody wud believe bear, so I had to take video of the prints with the Go Pro cam.
Very enjoyable day, 72 degrees in February. Now Jim is suggesting we take these kayaks to the ocean, it's only a 2 hour drive, I can imagine how awesome that wud be, but, I'm scared.

I have a rough draft started of my new bird dog ad, It's bold & to the point. I might have to tone it down some, but it's difficult and frustrating to hand hold the new recruits when most of them will disappear into the void after a short time. My perfect recruit wud be an aggressive animal and wud spend at least 4 hrs a day 2-3 times a week looking for these distressed fixers, that I luv so much.
He or she wud have an economy car and willing to risk losing their only funds on gas looking for the needle in the haystack. Where did that saying come from?
The rat population seems to have migrated, only got 1 this week w the spring trap, often they been chewed on some by the dog after they suffered an instant demise.
Last Monday was another gorgeous day in the central Valley so I threw the dog in the back seat with a tarp and drove up to another river and lake, called Pine Flat and the bad ass Kings river empties into her. It's a curvy road to the back of the lake with spectacular views, green grassy covered mountains and humongous boulders and cliffs, the famous California poppy's are just starting to bloom plus other varieties of different colors.
I got my secret spot, it's 4 miles up a dirt an gravel road that heads upstream of a creek called Sycamore Creek. I was too early for the salamander run, no lie, these little amphibious orange and black lizards begin migrating from somewhere. They lay in the icy stream and maybe breed.
When Rambo the 14 month old German Shepard puppy was let lose, he was wild, I thought he might run for the hills, he was smelling everything and running & wud sometimes get out of sight.
I took off on a hike on a side creek, Huge oak trees and this little stream was spectacular with boulders and small water falls, unbelievably gorgeous, and warm, sun shining and about 70 degrees, Rambo followed me, then we went back to the main creek and hiked around some monstrous granite slabs. A huge rock the size of a Jetta car sat in the middle of the stream, it was a different color and composition than the water worn rocks. I looked up at the nearby mountain top to see a cliff of jagged similar rocks with a big chunk missing that seemed to be the exact shaped rock sitting in the stream. The mountain was a quarter mile away and maybe 800 feet high.
The dog was luvin it, drinking out of the stream and slipping on the rocks and he cud navigate these treacherous paths much better than me with those huge paws digging in, 100% animal.
Then I got out the folding beach chair and flew that drone all over hell and back, used 3 batteries. It's not easy to control the thing smoothly, and when it's coming towards you the controls are ass back wards.
At 4 pm the sun went behind the mountain it was suddenly cold, and I realized, it's Feb and will get down to 40 degrees tonight and all I got is a t-shirt and the tarp the dog barfed on. We are in a place that don't even have a name cept the sign says wilderness 45.
If the car don't start wud I hunker down w Rambo and build a fire and try to survive the night or hike 10 miles to the nearest help?
