Default High Desert Storage

Hey everyone,im new to this site, and like everyone here im a pilot (CFII) but what i wanted to start a thread on is something that my family owns. My family currently owns 400 acres next to a paved public airport (which they also own) and a large steel building/hanger in the Sierra Nevada Mountains (close to a major city) Not wanting to type alot.. Id like thoughts on if anyone could give some business input or thoughts on turning this into a facility for degraded, un-flying, flying, abandoned, etc type of aircraft..
feel free to email me your thoughts.

What's the annual precipitation? Having bought a plane that was stored in
Florida, I became an expert in corrosion.

Bottom line:
If the plane is stored in a region with low precipitation and a low
incidence of hail, you have a good place for an aviation graveyard.

Hmmm....no "major" cities in the Sierras that I'm aware of. You mean
Reno, or maybe South Lake Tahoe? Reno is pretty dry, right?
