    Default newspaper story

    : I would also like to talk to a few people in our area about their experiences in finding and visiting ghost towns, so I can give an accurate idea to readers of what the frustrations and rewards are likely to be. Any ideas? Is there a way to contact the people who have contributed photos of the different towns? -- that would be a great place to start.

A ghost town does not have to be a fully rebuild/restored place. Most ghost towns I know have very little remaining and mostly consist of piles of wood, rock, metal and other debris scattered about. Often times I find these types of places far more interesting and intriguing then a still inhabited town, as it add charter and also it gives you a chance to flex you mind and imagine what something would have looked like, and what would have been here.

    : Thanks about as much as I think I can help you, you might want to contact the webmaster and ask about being able to contact the various people who have submitted photos for the ghost towns you mentioned.

    : One person to contact is David Wright. His last post is about 1/2 way down this board, under the title "good places to eat in Nevada." He is a published author, has submitted quadrillions of gt pics, and always leaves his email address in his posts. Tell him bad bob sent you.
