Cadyslim- I've been finding it near impossible to find acreage in central to western PA without gas leases. It's very disappointing. And once you read the leases, whether it's the older ones written back in the 80's/90's, or the new ones, you realize these folks sold their soul for next to nothing. It's sad. I wanted to find ground with no lease, and mineral/rights intact - not to lease them out, but to keep the ground from being pillaged. Years later, I've about given up. So much for stewardship for future generations by private parties.
