    When you put it that way it does not sound so bad. Maybe we should give it some serious thought. I would gladly donate a few grand for a part ownership. The big question to me would be the maintanence / upkeep. I was told by the caretaker that they just took over after her father passed away. She claims he was the caretaker for 37 years.

    Makes sense because if someone did not live out there and watch the place all the neat artifacts would have been long gone.

    My dad once talked about buying a ghost town and making it a vacation type deal. Only he wanted to interview those who wanted in an only let those with useful skills come iin. He also wanted to take away all the phones, radios, and stuff that they brought. He thought he could have enough people interested to keep the place running like a "real" town. That was way before the Frontier House and Montana House, etc. on PBS.
    I'm pretty sure that is not really a viable thing to do and I would hate to see a ghost town ruined that way. However, a rotating vacation/caretaker combo might work. Or maybe putting an RV near and installing an artist, retired person/s, whatever, could be workable.
    And y'know, fencing the area off and charging a few bucks a head to get in is an option. I love the thrill of the hunt and all, but I would pay a few bucks for access to a site especially if that helped keep it from being torn down.

    I guess that would be a better investment than buying a new quad! The way I see it, we only need about 996 or so more investors...........

    You are never to young for a ghost town.
    This is a hobby for me so I must admit that seeing so many people getting pleasure from my hobby is very rewarding and quite honestly, pretty humbling.
    A sincere THANKS to all – I really appreciate it.

    I take it you don't like snakes? Joan, My wife did not belive me when I told her to come over and see a "pink" rattlesnake. I Stepped on the rock just to the left of the snake twice. Once going up into the building and then when I came out. Did not see him until after I came out. I did not think he was real because I was so close to him. Less than 3 inches and he did not move or rattle. It was not until I sprinkled some sand on him that he moved at all.
