6. A thought on this a little more...My parents (well parent, since my dad

left) live in a mobile home park. Several of the homes in their park are for sale for $20,000 all the way down to $1,000. Could these not be purchased by the government (think emminent domain..sort of) from the sellers and moved? I lived in an older mobile home and while several of them would probably not pass inspection for movement, many of them would. Mine was 20 years old, but MrG had reinforced it and it was a lovely 780 s.f. home. It's just a thought. They are standing there empty anyway and many of them are quite nice looking with siding and shingled roofs. It's just a thought.
