For us, our single best investment was a chunk of bare land. And we recently purchased a house to use as a vacation rental that, between appreciation and rental income, will probably be at least as good. Real estate is also probably the investment we know the most about.

Congrats on a job well done. I've never been able to do anything other than lose money on real estate, hence my negative outlook on it. I realize that others can and have done well.
