    Here we go again...

    I just got a notice in the mail today from SITLA. Seems they want to auction off a bunch more land, and two of the parcels are in Pole Canyon south of Moab... yep, the same Pole Canyon where Lower Helldorado was recently sold.

    This time the parcels are a quarter-section (160 acres) and a half-section (320 acres). I can't tell from the map exactly where they are, or if any trails might be included (Upper Helldorado, more of Strike Ravine, and Coyote Canyon are in the area).

    We (RR4W) have a meeting on Friday with SITLA on an unrelated matter, and I will try to get more info then. In the meantime, just consider this a heads-up. The notice is also on the SITLA website.

    Please continue keep us posted Jeff. If the land does include any Trails, hopefully the 4wd crowd can purchase it this time & we can delegate what happens with the area.

    How can we get a map that shows the areas for sale?

    I got the same SITLA letter:

    Areas for Auction:

    Carbon County: Bishop Ridge and Cedar Ridge
    Grand County: Chapman Lane
    Kane County: East Zion Gateway
    San Juan County: Pole Canyon
    Summit County: Stag Canyon

    WTF? Even the SITLA mailer describes the Pole Canyon area as "popular with the four-wheeling community"... so some greenie group can get em' WTF?

    Stay tuned.. my website will have descriptions, maps, etc ASAP...

    An interesting idea. Perhaps we should set something like that up. (gears turning)

    We've talked about this after the last sale.........the land could be purchased by an Org. and then offered as shares to those with 4wd interests. IIRC, the last sale price sold for less than $500 an acre......most folks could come up with that on a credit card advance or sig loan. I'm VERY interested in buying some land in the Moab area.

    $500 acre x 320 acres = $160,000. Not too bad for 320 acres of land... I think it could be done, given the right resources.

    How can we find out if the land is really only going to sell for $500 an acre? That seems quite low.

    they dont kinow for sure, they are just going by what the previous parcel of land right by this stuff sold for...

    land tends to be fairly cheap when it in remote places with no services
