    Default RE: ZZYXZ ghost town bogus

    Recently, my friend and I went to find a ghost town listed on ghosttowns.com. its name is "ZZYXZ" it was supposted to be located in El Paso county in Colorado near the small town of Ramah.

    I have tried to follow the directions only to find out that the names of the streets do not exsist in the area there or/and are bogus.

    The Ghost town needs to be removed unless someone can clarify the directions and location.

    Is there any chance (however remote) that you may have mis-interpreded the instructions?

    Granted, I may not be the shapest knife in the drawer, but its taken me several tries to find my favorite ghost towns in the past. That one you are looking for looks like its worth several tries! I'm seething with jealousy!

    Try again, and good luck!

    It's taken me quite a few tries to find certain ghost towns too, or maybe there just are not any remnants of it left, I've come across towns like that too.

    Question

    I may have just fallen off a turnip truck, but after a bit of scurryin' about, I smell a rat too. ZZYZX, California, yes. ZZYZX, Colorado, I think not. OJ

    I just got off the phone with a feller in Ramah, Colorado who runs Korinek Konstruction. He lives 1 mile south of Ramah, and has never heard of Zzyxz, Co., which is supposed to be 2 miles south of Ramah.

    Default thanks

    bad bob,

    Thanks for that. I live 1 mile east of Ramah myself. I just moved here and thought it was interesting that there was supposed to be a ghost town that close to me.

    What really got me, is that after looking around from this place and several buildings found on arieal Photos. I also noticed that in the history of this supposed place they mined gold and copper.

    Being a part time prospector, I realized in my look about that the terrian is not suitable for such mining. In other words Coal yes. mining gold and copper on the plains seems less plausible.

    That and the fact there are no streets with names as those out this way, leaves me to the conclusion that this place is a hoax and should be removed from the site ASAP.

    With gas prices, as high as they are, people don't need to be wasting thier gas and time coming out here looking for a place that only exists in the hoaxers mind.

    My voter registration card reads independant as well. In cases like this, the conservative in me would tie him to a sauraro (spelling?) in the desert and let the critters eat him, while the liberal in me would feel bad about it. (For a few minutes, at least)

    That's a good idea Brian. If he tries to squirm away, the long needles will remind him where he is, before the vultures and other denizens feast on his sun-leathered remains.
