Nice! Are you likely to have zero visible neighbours for the foreseeable future too?

What are the ungalates in the third photo? Pronghorns?

Not sure of the species, but antelopes of some kind. By law, minimum lot size is 43,500 ft2 (about 4400m2), and the land towards the mountain top cannot be developed. I may get visible neighbours, but not close ones.

These are some sort of deer. There ain't no New World antelopes. Only thing that looks like them (but isn't a true antelope) is the pronghorn.
I knew that zoology degree would come in useful one day.

Chris, pronghorns look very 'goaty' and have maybe w tines per antler.  I think they are mule deer, but I've never seen them in the flesh so I'll be prepared to be corrected.

Mule deer, by the bifurcation of the buck's rack.
Same as the ones that stand on my front doorstep in the night.
In the winter, the locals like to bed down around the neighbor's hot tub.

Pronghorn Antelope are not antelope. Nearest relative is a goat.
Sometimes they are called "speed-goats." 60mph sprints not uncommon.
They don't jump fences. On the run, they lay over and body surf under the wire.

That house is sure easy on the eyes and so is the local landscape.
Bet it thrives on neglect.
Several gangs of mulies, 2 of the girls from the north-end gang, just outside my fence.

The large ears are a give away to the name Mule Deer.

SWMBO and I have occasional fantasies of chucking it in and retiring to someplace like Carefree. Enjoy.

2500 gallons. There's a sensor in the tank that notifies the water company when it reaches a low point, and the tanker truck comes the next day and fills it. I pay per fill.

The area Where I live doesn't have mains fed gas (propane) so most people have bulk tank propane or kerosene heating systems, many suppliers use a similar technology to the one you describe from refilling the tanks.  
 

a friend of mine has a spring fed water supply and during a drought a few years back he asked me if it would be ok to fill a water bowser (approx 300 us gallons) from my supply until we had rain again.  Being a friend, I obviously said yes then frantically googled what my water charges were as I had no idea how much it cost me.  Turned out it's approximately $1.90 per 250 gallons - it genuinely was a complete surprise to me (I know I was paying the water bill every year but I never l]scrutinised how much it was per gallon). It also caused me to vow to never buy another bottle of water again if I could avoid it - when a 0.5 litre bottle costs the same price as 500 litres (sorry can't do the maths now) of tap water, we make sure we are better prepared and carry it with us.

Very nice, Kevin!

If your ceiling collapses you can say the sky is falling.

Just don't throw stones, as the saying goes.

We have an issue in Ontario, over the ridiculously cheap rates charged for companies to extract water for commercial sale. Also, to maintain the water table. I don't buy bottled water.

We're on City water, but on septic. There's a new subdivision right beside the sewage treatment plant. It's on septic.
