    : the address is http://home.earthlink.net/-gstarbuck/beveridge.html
    : BTW I read where some Navy guys came in by helicopter a few years ago and carted out a piano....

    : Hi Rob,
    : I saw a past treasure hunter magazine artical (with pictures) at a museum in the area, the guy took out a pot belly stove among other relics.
    : Beveridge is starting to suffer from vandalism and one of the only ways to help protect it is not to publish the directions to it.
    : Roger Mitchell and Russ Leberman who have written many books on ghostowns in the past have tried to protect Beveridge by not publishing the directions to it.
    : Roger Mitchell tried to get the BLM to protect the site but they said the site was too remote for them to manage. These articals may be seen at the museum.
    : I believe that a past issue of Backpacker magazine published the directions, (how iresponsible).
    : I think a person who has to do a little research to find the cool sites will have a little more respect for the site than someone who has the directions handed to them on a silver platter.
    : As you know, directions to pictograph sites are no longer published because people carted off the rocks or vandalized the sites. I think our ghosttowns deserve the same protection,
    : this is the only way to protect these sites.
    : I have seen Starbucks site awhile back and have recently asked him to please remove the directions to this site, I ask others to please do the same.

I too am concerned with vandalism, but I think one needs to be a dedicated hiker to reach this site, unless, as the Navy boys did it, you enter by helicopter(!).
    : I researched access to Beveridge and found a wealth of detailed information for ways in.
    : Starbucks' site is defunct too, by the way.
    : If anyone has any information on stories contemporary to Beveridge and its' inhabitants, or a source of history for this camp I would be grateful to know!
