    • Started My Explorations Yesterday
      By letsgetlost
      Hi All, 
      Found this forum this morning (thrilled I did) after checking out some spots I discovered yesterday on a little adventure I treated myself to. I started in Reno (where I live as of recent) and drove out to Battle Mountain. Then took the 50 down to Austin, NV and then back to Reno. They aren't joking when they call it the 'Loneliest Road in America...' Anyway, what I realized was that Nevada is really barren, but when you do find those old towns or buildings, it's such a rewarding feeling. I'm going to try and go for two days next weekend and try to find some abandoned towns like I've seen on this forum. I abide by the phrase "Take only pictures. Leave only footprints." 
      I look forward to sharing my adventures with you all and finding some amazing new places to explore.

    • Abandoned Building And Mine Operation Discovered And Explored
      By Bob
      We found this place about two weeks ago, great site. I am not sure if the roads will still be passable as the area seemed to get some serious rain since we been there, but the road is fairly maintained up to the gate. At the gate, you have to hike about a mile, which isn't bad, but it's very steep terrain. We came around a corner and caught a glimpse of the massive operation. It was completely unexpected as we were really in the middle of nowhere. We did see an old outhouse and a few abandoned miners cabins on the way up. As we approached the stairs, we had to deliberate on whether to trust the stairs. They were solid up top, but were a little sketchy at the bottom. A video will be posted soon.
      Anyway, due to the amount of metal at this site, I will only reveal its location to Established Members who are interested in checking it out. I would hate to see this place ransacked by metal scrappers.
      This place was a really cool find. Street lamps, and a processing system with conveyor belts, classifiers, and much more. It looks like all you would need to do is hit the power button and you would be back in business! Anyone know what this place is called?
      The lack of vandalism was really unexpected.


      A look back up the stairs we just came down.

      We took a wrong turn and ended up at the top of the stairs! Coming down these stairs is a little sketchy as they are not attached at the bottom and are free floating.

      I am going to start bringing a drill, screws, nails, and hammer when I check these places out. It would be nice to try and help preserve these locations as much as possible.
