For those of you trying to find a BOL...try a bankruptcy auction

Recommended Posts

I thought I'd pass along the website for the current auctioneer that a lot of the bankruptcy trustees around here are using. It's www.bkassets.com. There are several properties for sale, often timeshares, but every so often you find a gem.

 

Bankruptcy sales of land are not well-publicized for the most part. Have done quite a few 363 sales in bankruptcy court, I can tell you that our notice requirements are practically non-existent. The fact that a notice of sale appears on the docket is often the only notice the court requires, so you don't have a ton of bidders looking at the property to begin with.

 

If a trustee is listing the property at bkassets.com, it means that his/her real estate broker has told the trustee that it will take a long time to get a buyer for the property through listing it. Also, most of the land listed tend to be off the beaten path, or requires significant development. Those facts scare away most "normal" buyers.

 

There are other sites, like nabt.com (National Association of Bankruptcy Trustees) that will have bankruptcy auction information.

you dont need to own it in order to cache stuff there, cause you have to cache at night anyway, and be gone, leaving no sign, at dawn. in fact, you dont want you or your stuff to be anyplace known to be associated with you. Just ask the Branch Davidians or Randy Weaver about that! Big Brother can be ambushing you, stealing your stuff, etc.  Dont risk it.

your BOL should be a spiderhole in the woods at  your local water source. if shtf, you can extend it horizontally, so you can sleep in it. you should have empty, buried drums near your rental storage, so you can empty the storage the first night of shtf, having your stuff where nobody is going to find it. Few will be raiding the storage areas the first night of shtf, and the silenced 22 and subsonic  ammo  will deal with the few, if need be. Can't risk them shooting you in the back or following/stealing your stuff. Sucks to be them, wrong place/time.

buried food gets dogs/coyotes/bears digging it up, attracting humans.  Empty drums don't have that problem. Once shtf, you can use baited snares to deal with critters trying to steal your food.  The drums should have 3-4" of gravel all around and under them, to prevent cracking caused by the freeze-thaw cycle.  A double wrap of rat-wire will keep rodents out of your plastic drums. Metal drums corrode badly in just one year of burial. A couple of drum liners will (mostly) protect the rat-wire from corrosion.
