Bananaslug-

Not a bad Idea. I have done this in fact. The problem is that the satelite images are more often then not quite dated, often years old. But, it will come in handy in other ways. Fortunately, we seem to be generating a bit of a "network" of people in the area who are or will take a peek at this cabin and surrounding areas-reporting back to this thread...as well as similar threads I have on other forums. That is my hope along with our actually making repairs.

Questions and Answers...still pondering options

I have been reading up again this morning. Still looking for the best answers and resolution(s) for my intent. However, depending on the current status of the Edith E. as a claim, the following, with enough of the "RIGHT" people, may be the answer, and is perhaps the direction I am leaning. As you know, when you hold an active claim, you do not of course own the land, but you DO own the RIGHTS to that section of land as it were, and therefore have the right to treat it's location as your own...meaning, you have the right to keep tresspassers off, lock the dwelling up, even so far as fencing the area! I still have loads to follow up on today (and the weeks/months to come) but, this is looking more and more a viable option. For anyone who reads this with the same concerns Steve, myself and many others have AND are perhaps interested in "pitching in" if this effort comes to fruition, please PM me. I will keep all conversations private and confidential if you prefer until we know the actual direction we will take and the outcome thereof.

The following is a link to BLM's current claim rules and regs, in a nutshell.

http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/info/iac/miningfacts.html

Again, I am trying to determine, without a doubt, the actual current status of the Edith E. claim activity.

I'd like to suggest that anyone who has an interest in this cabin and my efforts (now "our" efforts) please subscribe to this thread. I will use it for future trips and such for this "Cause". That way, ya'll will know when I am heading out for one of those "resto runs".

Thanks!
Dave

Oh And....

I am gonna plan a "barn dropping party" (as opposed to a barn raising party) sometime this spring. See attached for "materials" this will yeild!

I will announce the weekend when I have a better idea when will work for me. But, when I set this up, I am inviting anyone locally to come over and help me. This is one of my old chicken coupe/barns that's falling down anyway. What better way to recycle its materials then to help mend the Edith E. Cabin!

As for my "Barn Dropping Party", I plan on having a Burger and hot dog BBQ that weekend and am hoping someone in my local area will offer to come help. That means I need two things...

1-vomunteers

2-a head count if I actually get any "volunteers" so I know how many burgers and/or dogs to have ready

Please let me know if you are interested in helping me out with my efforts to save The Edith E cabin.

Thanks,
Mojavedave

Thanks Jeff. I really only could use a couple people, but whoever wants to help is welcome. Some of the barn will end up as fire wood. But theres plenty of good wood left as well. So I need someo e to hole stuff while. StrategicLly disassembling it rather then just pull it down.

Anyway, I will post here and perhaps a new thread for this when I get it figured out.
