T. Boone Pickens is selling ranch for $250M

High-profile investor T. Boone Pickens is selling his 65,000-acre ranch in the Texas Panhandle, and it can be yours for $250 million.
Pickens tweeted the news with a link to a Wall Street Journal article Wednesday morning, saying he’s putting the Mesa Vista Ranch on the market. “I’m proud of our conservation efforts that have taken place over decades and hope the next owner has the same passion,” he tweeted. Pickens hasn’t revealed his reason for selling the ranch. Last July the 89-year-old said his health was in decline after suffering several “mini-strokes” and being hospitalized for a major fall. “Now, don’t for a minute think I’m being morbid,” he wrote in an article at the time. “Truth is, when you’re in the oil business like I’ve been all my life, you drill your fair share of dry holes, but you never lose your optimism.”
