Form a clan... of about 25 or so non-mormon folks... run for mayor... bring in some prostitution gambling and liquor stores... and vote the current regime out.

I do miss being close enough to drive through there at least. We've thought about it for summers (may have already mentioned that) but, we don't know anyone there or anything and we have family in Flagstaff and Pinetop 3hrs away here that we can stay at to get out of the heat.

Oh well, worste case, we pay less that $3 a year for taxes... LOL...we'll just keep it, will it to my son, he can will it to his son, and maybe by then...it'll be worth something

If you've already paid for it and you don't owe much every year as taxes, you may want to keep it if it's going to take so much time and money to sell it. It's a buyer's market and rural Colorado has rural lots of ranchland with a view of the mountains out the wazoo that could feed generations of dreamy baby boomers if such a thing existed.

Perhaps in 10-20 years, if the economy recovers and the "I wanna build a eco friendly fair trade home in the mountains, daytrade my way to millions and teach holistic laugh yoga on the side" crowd comes back, then that might be a better time to sell or it's possible the water situation will have other possibilities by then.

I had read this:
"So far one only knew that the mass of the world-wide ocean water varies seasonally by on average approximately three quadrillion kilogrammes (a quadrillion equals to 1 followed by 15 zeroes) - that implies a sea level variation of approx. seven to eight millimetres. This effect is brought about, among others, by variations in precipitation and evaporation as well as by the storage of water as snow. But, also, the melting of the glaciers and the ice masses in Greenland and in the Antarctic play a role."

If we were to filter it that ocean water, there would be plenty. I'd also read that the weather will be a bit dryer in coming years, so we need to start thinking about water as a resource.

Bringing in water from a tap as you call it is consider a few things:

1)--Can you get a permit to do it, as the water control people and the county, etc., will require this and it will have to have approved plans, and inspections.

2)--Can you get an easement through the other properties to run the line. Without an easement through each property, you cannot do this. One party that is not willing to let an easement through their property can stop the whole project unless there is an existing water line easement throughout the project.

3)--Is the water supply sufficient if you try to have a number of people on that line in your subdivision. It may not be possible to get enough water, as you know the water rights are already owned and only the water supply entity can give you this answer.

And that is just the start of the questions you need to answer.

Holistic laugh yoga! I had never heard of such a thing. Hmmm, you might have something, there.
