Hello! I just wanted to throw a question out there in regards to everyones ghost town hunting. Has anyone ever run into any 'trouble' while exploring some of these abandoned towns? Has there been anyone else there that wasn't very inviting? Or anyone living there that wasn't particularly welcoming?
There was one time that I was doing some exploring while I was working in Colorado for a few months. I found what seemed to be an abandoned mining camp on a hill (no idea where I was .. but it was VERY far from the nearest paved road or house). I climbed the hill to take some pictures and explore. I looked down and saw my Avis rental Grand Prix sitting all alone in the distance...I had this horrible feeling that by the time I'd get back to the car the tires would be slashed. Then I kept wondering what I would do if while spying on my car, I saw a few people come out of the woods to inspect it and perhaps 'disable it' so I couldnt leave.
Maybe I've spent too much time with the horror movies. But I got down that hill pretty quick...that camp was eerie enough as it was...and got out of there.
