    Either way, just make sure you don’t land on the middle, because unlike in the middle of nowhere, you know what you’ll find there.

    See, that's how they getcha...sell you a lot on the Moon for $20, then, by the time you find out it'll cost a dozen billion or two to get your double-wide up there, it's too late.

    This reminds me of a short story I read in high school about the Planet Verna. The story was
    "Of Missing Persons." (Jackson Browne once borrowed the title for one of his songs.)

    A bogus travel agency was selling trips to the Planet Verna. It was thought that Judge Crater had taken them up on their offer.

    Before reading the story, I remembered having seen a screenplay version of it on TV back in the '50s. Can't remember what drama anthology show.

    Read about the story below.

    Better yet, here is the story itself, by Jack Finney.

    actually there is a clause that no COUNTRY can claim the moon for soverncey but private individuals can, kind of like antarctica is free land ( or ice) and no one country can claim it, so while this may seem like a silly venture there may be something to it.

    I can't answer your original question. But I can take a guess at what you won't be getting if you don't go along with this. :D

    Your wife bought a piece of paper. Hopefully it wasn’t too expensive and hopefully she knew what she was doing. But if she really thought she was buying a piece of the moon, you had better be careful. There are much more expensive scams out there looking for victims.

    No outdoor gigs, there. You can only hear your amp indoors in an atmosphere.
