It's funny you say that. I guess I partially agree. The problem used to be with my group, none of us owned tents (I know they can be bought cheapish but at the time we were barely making ends meat) or campers.

I basically looked at it like I'll pay the money to have a roof over the head for any weather issues, but the rest of it I looked at as more of a camping experience. By this I mean yea they have pots and pans to use and while it doesn't bother me, those things have hardly ever been cleaned and at best have been by hand, it's usually dirty, ect ect, but I also wasn't looking for anything more/better than that. In a way I looked at it like luxury camping having a roof, tons of space and beds, tables and chairs, grill provided as well as the bonus stuff like a foosball table and showers. While Ashland isn't far, for us I felt it was nice to not have to drive anywhere at anytime, everything all in one spot.

In terms of course(s?) on that side of the hill, it's all pretty terrible anyway, and getting rid of that doesn't hurt anything other than our promised "cabin" over there that I paid for and likely won't get a return on.

We have gone and had a group in honka while others camped outside. I usually camped as I own a tent and enjoy it. And I definetly felt cleaner in my tent than in those beds.

Roger's purchase happened soon after his father-in-law passed away who had been John's partner in creating the partly developed ball golf course on the hill.


Which really confirms my thought, that Johns new move to sell lots onsite, as being illegal since he most likely doesn't even own the land.

John owns or controls enough plots that he could easily be selling some.

Like the plot that my friend bought in 2005 and was promised a cabin. For a mere 5 or 10k he "owns" literally nothing. Or the redesigning of the original layout which left many tee pads and wasted time and effort laying all of the property. I have a cabin just an hour away and choose to not play. I'd rather go play in superior or cable. Beautiful property with a legit con artist ruining it. Poorly managed at best. Hopefully he can get world's again. Lmao

Maybe a stupid question and I literally have no idea about any of this, but if the tax info doesn't have his name on it, why would he be expected to pay the taxes on the property from the county?

I am guessing that he controls all the land owned by that partner Chuck mentioned, which is like all of HBH. So his selling of it is probably legal.

He is probably the managing member of the LLC. Of course it has been administratively dissolved for failure to file annual reports with the secretary of state... https://www.wdfi.org/apps/CorpSearch...highbridge+llc
