Results of the online auction, posted on Tuesday afternoon, showed that all 43 parcels up for sale received winning bids, which averaged $28.68 per acre and ranged between $2 and $93 per acre. Total proceeds from the auction were $1.56 million, according to the BLM.
OK, here's a crazy idea. Get on Kickstarter or similar before one of these auctions. Let's get thousands of people willing to buy an acre, and scoop this acreate right out from under them. Whaddaya say? It's our land. We should buy it back. We shouldn't have to. But we could?
