So Big River is NOT BLM land leased by the CRIT?
No way, no how??
I heard it was from two different people. One had a place there, and the other was a woman at the launch ramp guard house.
Her family owned Parker Oil. She seemed pretty legit to me?
What is the story on big river below parker . Can you own the land ? Is it reservation land ? Private ? Does the water level stay high enough to boat ? Any info is appreciatedwww.riverdavesplace.com
Maybe @rivrrts429 can shed some light on this subject as well?
My area of Big River is on leased land from CRIT. BoatCop is correct that there are pockets of BLM land within Big River but a majority is leased CRIT land.
We drove all around Big River last year. I had no idea how HUGE that area is!
There some killer places in there, and some sketchy spots as well. Is there a map showing what areas belong to who?
Anyhow, like I said, I wish I would have grabbed a plot back in the day. Loved staying at LL and enjoying that section of the river.
This is why we put our Blue Water Lagoon place in just my wife's name. She's a card carrying citizen of the Cherokee Nation, and if they tried to fuck around on us about the lease, she has standing to fight it in Tribal Court. We made sure that they knew it, too. In the 10 years we owned it, didn't hear a peep from them.I would never buy property that is not deeded. The Indian lease is not worth the paper it’s written on as they are a sovereign nation and you can’t take them to court. They can change the lease at any time and not in your favor. If you do enter a lease make sure you can afford to lose the money you put into it. The next couple of years will be interesting when these leases are up.
It jumped the River last night. Now burning on both sides. Structures along 15th Ave in the valley were evacuated, but so far none are directly threatened. They've done a good job keeping the fire from residences. So far, no buildings lost, which is a feather in the cap to those on scene and working the fire. From the start they said that this was their main objective, protecting structures.Any recent fire status? Lots of smoke over Havasu this morning. Heard yesterday afternoon the fire was also burning on the AZ side of the river.
Might get your wish towards the end of the monthPower came back on a few hours after I left LL. I still had ice in my freezer when I got there and a cooler packed for the day, so I didn't loose much. I grabbed my boat and headed to BR for the day. Launched just as my buddies up there were leaving their docks and ran up river to the cove and hung for the day. Ended up bak at their place for dinner and then headed back to LL for the night. Put the kids to bed and cranked the ac! I made sure to cover the boat last night because I had heard that the winds were going to pick up and man did they! My carports are black with ash. Walking outside was miserable this morning. I'm hoping the winds blow now and clear things out, otherwise we need a good rain to wash everything down. What a mess. Wilson Rd was still closed this morning so I've been through Vidal like 4 times in the last 24 hours lol. I was told that should be opened this afternoon, and it's CRITs call now. I think I watched the fire jump the river yesterday morning. I got to AW bridge just as they were closing the road. That's a long way around having to back track to Parker then to Vidal I didn't see any active fire this morning but visibility sucked cause of the wind.
I really needed some boating time this weekend and glad I made the effort to get down there. Be back in 2 weeks
