  • My 2013 Nevada/Mojave ghost town trip!

    I've just finished posting the report of my 2013 Nevada ghost town trip on my website! It's not directly railroad-related but there's a lot of great reference material for mines, mills and other structures:

    My 2013 trip was a real adventure in every sense of the word! I saw some wonderfully preserved sites, many historic ruins, and a mine big enough to drive a car in; ancient log cabins and fascinating machinery; thunderstorms, flash floods, wildlife encounters, and a blue sphinx! I also had a variety of car problems, a near-disaster, and my first-ever call to 911, and being on the receiving end of Mineral County's Search and Rescue! I visited many interesting sites, most of which I’d never seen before, and a few I had not seen in many years.

    I hope you'll enjoy reading about it. If you discover any broken links or other issues, please let me know. Also I'd appreciate hearing any suggestions as to how I could improve the site or make it easier to navigate.

    Excellent photos, Ray. You found some great sites and had more excitement than you probably wanted. The site with the scorpions and camel spiders must have been 'interesting'.

    The only problem that I found with the links is at the end of part 5. When I clicked on the hot link that said "Nevada Trip 2013 Part 6", it brought me back to Part 4 instead.

    Some great modeling ideas there. Thanks for sharing.

      I for one would like to thank you for taking the time and effort to build the pages, and document what we are seeing at each location. Its a grande travelogue to be viewed many times. I have viewed your previous trips too. I use the visuals and rock colorings a lot, and for that I certainly appreciated the photos. I will have a mine and mining camp kit coming to me from Stoney your pics are going to be very useful.

          As usual, I enjoyed your pictures and description immensely. But I should have been out mowing the lawn or something

              Even for a "flatlander", it looked a really cool trip. Excellent photos for mining aficionados. I have to give kudos to those hearty souls that lived and mined there.
