    : Lynda/Eric,

    : I find this very hard to swallow, especially if you look on a BLM map it clearly shows not everyhting is private property. Then their is the fact that the company that purchased all the private owners out earlier, has now gone Bankrupt, so according to BLM personnel they say it is all in limbo, and that they have been having meetings on the issue as well. The names I gave to Eric earlier, stated that they know for a fact that it is not all private, and then their is the fact that the road is a county maintainted road, which makes it a country road, not private, and give right away to public access. It sounds to me that they just dont want us Californians to come to their state and poke around.

    : I have requested both Doug and Bob to look into the matter as well, as they are both locals in Carson City, and perhaps they can get the striaght answer to our huge delema. It seems to me that BLM is not so sure or perhaps different information from different people, due to lack of information, one way or another this really needs to be cleared up and some striaght answers given. It really is a shame that a great historic site be lost becuase of lack of information by BLM

    I am literally minutes outside of Carson City on Hwy. 50 so please, if you guys start planning trips up there or anything, let me know. My fiance and I would be thrilled to join you as we are avid ghost towners.

    Also, I will do anything I can to help research this whole Olinghouse situation to see if we can find any answers. I'll keep you all posted if I turn anything up!
