    I understand.

    But the problem is folks can buy property and regardless of what is on it, lock it up as they please. Fighting to keep them from destroying anything can usually lead to years of court cases and likely end up with them winning as more and more folks are backing the destruction of old towns, buildings, mines simply for the safety of stupid people that tend to get hurt being, well stupid.

    Gary.. I mean Grand Llama.

    First, his definition of a ghost town is incorrect. Abandoned property with ownership forfeited is not defined as a Ghost Town.

    Next, I don't recall seeing any "no tresspassing" signs in State Parks. If a town is designated a State Historical Park, tourism is generally encouraged. Some areas may be off limits to help preserve delicate items or areas.

    Last, "makes one wonder what they're up to"? The evil scientist inventing what? Drug gangs brewing meth? Torture chambers?

    I believe a further "probe" is needed on this one.

    His wording is wrong, but his question is clear to me anyway.

    Realistically most all land is owned by some one some where. What the BLM don't control, you have state, county, developers, etc hogging it up. I've run into folks that own the property where I want to go, and some times they let you check it out. Some times not. The BLM usually won't stop you unless it's a critical ACEC, immanent danger, reseed/new growth, etc. The state and counties are usually so back logged and unaware that you can do as you please. And unfortunately Nevada doesn't have too many historical GT parks, but what we do have are usually open year around without issue.

    But I have run into those that claim the land as theirs when you know in the back of your mind that it likely isn't. I know some areas that folks have run into these types as they were guarding their crops or labs and chased off the "tourists". I have had one run in with some peculiar characters at an abandoned site by Elko, but we never saw exactly what they were being funny about. Luckily we out numbered and were far more armed than they (hunting season) so they didn't get too pushy, but they never did leave us alone till we left.

    In that case, I'll take your word for it, and nominate you for the previously mentioned title. And since there are no other nominees, you own the title.

    I bow to your superior knowledge, and request you be lenient on a humble old man.

    This title comes with an annual annuity of $200,000, a stretch limo, two villas, one in southern France, and the other in Switzerland, (actually a chalet). You're also entitled to all you can eat buffet at Shakey's, and 7 virgins to help ease the daily drudgery of ruling over your Llamadom.

    And now sire, you are on your own until you choose your advisory panel.

    How old is the stewardess, what flavor ice cream, and what caliber ammo? Most of my long guns are lever action cowboy shooters in .44-40, .38-40 , .25-20, etc. I'm definitely interested......... .....

    I'll take it for the money so I can get to exploring all the cool places here I can't get to 'cause of gas prices. Actually, that's not true, I can't get to them because I have to work for a living

    Is that Shakey's Pizza? If so I'm all over it. Haven't had that here for 20 years about

    Don't need any virgins, and I hate the French. Brian can have them if'n he agrees to wash my Scout when I come back from my adventures in the boonies.

    Might keep the chalet though
