  1. The series of books by author Fred Holabird are getting harder to find and more expensive to buy. Currently on Ebay for $24 + $7 shipping. This book currently sells at Amazon for $157 Nevada History Through Glass: The Nevada Bottle Book Volume 1 by Fred N.

  5. Currently using a Nikon D3200 and a Nikon D5300. I also have a Kodak M750. It is a great little camera and perfect for backup. For paranormal investigations I have two Fuji Film A101 compact cameras and a Kodak Easy Share DX6340.
  6. Welcome to the group, Wesley. As I get older the one thing that remains consistent is regrets that I didn't follow my dreams when I was younger and still unencumbered by the responsibilities of being an adult. I say go for it, but be prepared. Plan out your route and then analyze the possible problems for any given area. Having a break-down in or near a populated area is a pain in the ass, but at least there is the high chance of getting assistance. But, breaking down in the backwoods, the desert or along certain roads that border Mexico could be very, very dangerous. Plan out ahead of time which roads or areas you absolutely need to avoid. The guys in this group can be your best resource for this type of information. Another good resource is https://roadtrippers.com/ If you need an adventure buddy nearby, my cousin Michael lives in Monroe and is also a member of the NC branch of my paranormal investigations team. We are looking for new members. Of all the current members Michael is the most adventurous, driving as far as New York to check out a haunted location.
  7. If I am able to I will always collect documents, photos and other paper items that reveal identities and will wither destroy them or try to return them. Regarding the brothel receipts, I would just destroy them and not try to find who made the payment with their bank card. When we first started going to Ghost Ranch there was a two-drawer metal file cabinet stuffed full of income tax returns, W-2's and other financial paperwork. The caretaker and I put in a few hours one day burning all of them and making sure to remove anything that would be of value or interests to the heirs of the property.
  8. Ed, I am talking about someone actually knocking down a standing building to take away portions of it. If the building or structure has already collapsed to the point where it is unrecognizable, then I see no problem with reclaiming the wood, preserving it from destruction by termites or fires. Plus,old wood adds a nice vintage touch in a home.
  9. I am on the fence about this topic. I think it depends on what is being taken. If someone decides to tear a building apart or in some way causes destruction to the remaining integrity of an old building, that pisses me off, just as tagging and graffiti do. Items that may be of historical significance can be taken and given to a local historical or genealogical society, or maybe even descendants of the original owner can be located. Because I do paranormal investigations I also have a superstition over bringing things home from a supposedly haunted location. However, at the ranch my team and I have been given special permission to take any items we would like to have because whoever buys the property might bulldoze everything. I have an oil painting that an artist did of the hacienda house, BEFORE it caught on fire. But something like a mirror I would never take! LOL!
  10. Here is a similar one, also used to gauge snowfall. https://agresearchmag.ars.usda.gov/2011/jan/global
  11. Is there anyone here who can get me a copy of the Roster for the 1st Cavalry, B Troop, 1892 to 1895? Need to verify if a particular name is on it.
  12. I think you only share with those you have in your own network, but I'm not sure. I very seldom use phone apps.
  13. It is hard to let loose sometimes, even when you remember doing the EXACT same things when you were a kid. All of my grandkids are absolutely fearless. The 3 1/2 year old who lives with me is always trying to climb our lemon & orange trees, the block wall, up the kitchen cabinets, etc... She also likes to dig, as does our Belgian Malinois, so when she digs, the dog digs, and next thing you know my granddaughter has disappeared down a 4 foot hole!
  14. I was a real tomboy. My parents couldn't have stopped me from climbing rocks and trees even if they wanted to. I am also a firm believer in allowing children to experience life, even if it means they will fall down and get a few scratches and bruises.
