Just trying to figure out if people like ghost towns or not. I have always been a big fan of real ghost towns (zero residents), but they are getting very hard to find these days. I have a bunch mapped out we haven't yet explored, but should we even bother making video out of them?

Ghost towns are my favorite

These were the sort of things that I found your channel from in the first place, there's something quite incredible when you come across a real untouched place.  I love to see the ones where it's almost as if you've stepped out of a time machine.....or onto the set of wrong turn 😂

Yes! The history of them are awesome! Just to see how people used to live! Definitely! No one can throw you out for a spirit board either! Lol! Can do a triple trifecta! Abandoned location, sure  in a boom town some came up missing! Paranormal investigation! Boom 💥 you please almost everyone! 🤣

I would have to say that's the holy grail of ghost towns and I think that's what keeps me searching. I have only found one place so far that seemed like the people just left and walked away. With all the snow on the ground right now, it's hard, plus @EWU Emma needs to hurry up and get this video edited so we can get out and explore!

There was this one ghost town called Aurora Nevada that was in pristine condition in the 1950's or 1960's that I wished I had the opportunity to visit. Today it's like nothing was ever there. It's such a shame to lose an entire town like that. I do like the mysterious ones too, which don't seem to have any known history.

Those are cool too! Mysterious! Gets the brain working!

Speaking of ghost towns and the hills have eyes, did you ever find out what was hiding  under the trailer at the 11.50 Mark of this video?  It reminded of the inbred family that kept the mum tied up under the bed on an episode of X-Files 😱

No, but according to a local, they have leveled the entire property and put up a fence around it. I have been informed by a few different people that a missing person may actually be buried on the property!

Oh my! Reminds me of my dads friend when I was little. He went missing and they found him buried underneath his trailer! Spooky!

As long as you do not use certain words in the title YouTube algorithm will suppress the videos. 

They actually scan each video for what people are saying in the video. Suppression and demonetization are always something we have to worry about as it could literally destroy a channel like ours that requires so much travel expenses.

What's interesting, it's a case we actually covered, April Pitzer, that they think is buried there!

Here was what Aurora looked like after hit was abandoned, if only it wasn't completely destroyed I would love to visit a ghost town like this today, but I am afraid they no longer exist:

I enjoy them.  Really cool part of history that for the most part is forgotten about.  Always fascinating for me to see and learn.  

One thing I LOVE about visiting Nevada is the amount of public BLM land to explore. I am not a fan of the BLM Bureaucracy, but I do love the land to explore. I guess it's a love / hate relationship with BLM, but there is a lot of land to explore in Nevada.

Unfortunately we don’t have any “public” land like that in Texas.  Land here is almost all privately owned.  Largest landowner in my county is the USFW, and the bulk of their property isn’t open to the public 😐

Yeah, I think that's one thing that keeps us from visiting Texas as we try to always respect private property that is properly fenced or posted. I do have a lot of cases I want to cover down there, but I often wonder if I will be able to even gain access to the locations where people are said to have gone missing.

It may be unique to Texas, but purple paint serves as a “No-Trespassing” sign.  So if y’all ever do come out this way keep that in mind.  The paint provision is part of Texas Penal Code §30.05.

Ghost towns and abandoned places are always fascinating. If you need some coordinates I got you a few that might interesting.... if you didn’t find them yourself all ready. 🙂 I like how respectful you guys are with the environment and the places you find.

Ghost towns are hard to come by these days, seems they are disappearing fast.

      I used to live at the base of Blue Mountain, and I once got to explore the mountain. There are abandoned mines, abandoned mining claims, remains of a cabin that is at least 60 years old, and a year-round spring flowing out the side of the mountain! It was only accessible by quad, and it took about 2 hours to get to, but it is an incredibly unique and untouched place. Highly recommend exploring Blue Mountain!! At least half of it is BLM (checkerboard BLM and private land in mile squares out there). I also know of a few different abandoned houses, a ghost town, and a hot spring (if it's still there...) would love to share the info with you guys!!

      Looks like quite the complex east of Alkali lake wildlife area.  Definitely abandoned but close to an operating quarry or gravel pit it looks like

      Some pretty good sized holes in the ground. Mine that they stoped up to the surface maybe or it is natural cave like formations.  
      EWU crew ever been there?

      Many times on our videos we see people who are unhappy with the fact that we usually keep locations secret. Some think we do this in order to be mean, others think we do it because we are trespassing. The truth is, neither of these are actually true. The only reason we try to keep some locations secret is to try and prevent further destruction and vandalism of these locations. I am not sure it works though as it seems that every time we return to a location we kept secret, it's always destroyed more. What do you think?
