In the winter theirs not much to do but dream about things we need to do this coming summer. Can I add one more to the list? Over the years I've had coworkers buy land to build a cabin on, after they did they found out they had to haul the water in. It only a suggestion....before buying a place find out if there is drinkable water near the cabin and how to get running water to it.
Another problem is storage and keeping it from freezing in the winter.
A couple of web site that may have information on water quality in your area.
