If you want your own personal take-off above Carpinteria, the top of Snowball will be sold at auction on December 7th, no reserve.

Lot #23 looks like it has the best launches, but if you can afford the lot behind it also, lot 26 is a good top landing LZ in open levelish pasture. I think a number of pilots (including myself) have re-launched from lot 23 (see attached site map from web link above).

Are the individual lots going to be auctioned? It looked to me like the whole property is to be sold as one. And while there's no reserve, the list price of $32M suggests none of us are going to walk away with our own private launch out of spare beer money. FWIW for a couple orders of magnitude less money I'd actually be up for this, but I think it'll be a cold day in hell before 40 acre lots in prime Montecito/Carp view locations like this are available for a price any of us can afford.
