I was looking for a book and found another auction on ebay that said that anyone can claim government land up to 150 acres. Anyone hear about it?

Sure. Why, you can claim up to 320 acres here or 50 acres in Hawaii here. I just claimed Washington D.C. and sent off a letter to Congress and the White House warning them to "Get off my land or else!" Just a minute, a bunch of nutcases are banging on my door... I'll be right back...

According to the BLM a Federal law was passed that stopped all homesteading on public lands. I do think that there is a thing call "urban homesteading" that works a little differently but I am afraid that in the U.S. homesteading is a thing of the resent past (around 1989 I think).
I was going to homestead a nice piece of land in Independence, California back in 1969 but part of the homestead law was that I had to pay for the surveyor’s which at that time was going to cost me about $200.00 (about 3 weeks pay for me). Had I known that homesteader's were exempt from the draft (unless a declared emergency was called by the Fed's) I would of come up with the cash real fast and been homesteading before I got my draft notice.

Cute pun Irossal. If you don't know what I am refering to, re-read your last post, and look at the two words directly under your avitar.
