Hello Arch.........this post to be way off topic. Wasn't the marked grave containing the gold at the end of "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly named Arch Stanton? Just doing a memory check here. :waitasec:

Almost. 

The gold wasn't in Stanton's grave.  It was in the grave next to it marked "Unknown".  Stanton's grave just had Stanton's bones. 

Yeah, I love those old westerns.

That's right DD. Guess my memory is failing me. As many times as I've watched Eastwood's spaghetti westerns I should have remembered. Always got a kick out of Eli Wallach.

Enjoy the popcorn Bob. :beer:

I have two "cold cases" in my genealogy that I have been trying to solve for over 35 years, and like you, I lay awake at night trying to find the answers. Every search turns up NOTHING! It drives me nuts.

Cindy mine is a case involving a very suspicious death I worked. I had a good clearance % on my cases I and when it came to death investigations this was the singular one that I could not assemble. Drives me nuts. My old partner and I still email a few times a year playing the what if game...

I think I mentioned once long ago  I worked another one that lead me to be quite certain I had stumbled on to a serial killer, and had him, dead to nuts, on a attempt murder. Got him held over to answer to the felony....and the D.A. plead it out...this was in 1987...and I am still beyond angry. I am confident he killed at least 3 people and tried to kill 3 more. His last attempt was my case. I traced him clear back to Mississippi in the 50's where, as a youth, he stabbed a guy in a bar...but his dad knew a guy..  that is where he started.

I have been waiting, patiently, for this guy to die. Because I am writing a book....and he is now dead...

Also have a couple of dead end family tree deals...but that is another thread we need to start I guess...

So how is the book progressing? I will be buying it once it comes out.

Happy to have you throw your family tree dead ends my way. That is where I really excell.

Bob, wanna start a genealogy section? Could also use it to share information about those who used to live in abandoned towns, etc....

Thanks Steve, the popcorn was great! But, now I am trying to understand the context of the quote. Seems out of place, or just over my head. Can you fill me in?

Hi Bob....well, sort of pulled a blonde moment with what really was meant as a quote. I had typed more but not yet finished and bumped the enter key which submitted a partial comment. Guess I'm not smart enough to figure out how to retract a post.

What I was making mention of was a cute No Trespassing Sign I came across while looking for the town of Arrow CO. There were numerous little warning signs that stated "Trespassers will be shot on sight" Below the bright red warning there were in smaller wording. "Is there life after death? Trespass on this property and find out!".

Actually Bob I was just making sure you were paying attention. :sorry22:

Ha. Funny. I forgot all about Arch Stanton's grave. Recently I watched The Outlaw Josie Wales, my favorite western of all times. May now go re-watch The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.  I haven't "talked" with Mona for a long time. She gave up, several times, and I certainly understand why. Recent interest in Nan's case gave her some hope, and I think problems that arose after that caused her, once again, let her down again. She has invested the majority of her life in trying to find Nan, with no success. I know, lots of people go missing. However, Mona seems like such a nice kid. If we do use cadaver dogs, and use some new techniques--some things that haven't been done in the past--an effort could be put together, with volunteers experienced in this kind of thing, to find Nam's remains. I don't have dogs or drones, but I surely would try to participate in a search. She is still somewhere between the place her car was found and Seven Troughs. It might, at least, give Mona some closure, even if we don't find her. Seems mines could be searched, graveyards... Dunno. We might find someone else's remains! Why not??

This time she decided to call it quits after the grandchildren and children of Harry and Lula (or Lulu if you prefer) found her on Facebook. At first they were somewhat kind to Mona, but then they seemed to start attacking her and she didn't want to deal with the stress, so she decided to erase her online presence and disappear.

I see. Okay, I understand. That is sad, but I certainly understand why. Maybe it's best that she lay it to rest, altogether. She's calling the shots, and if she decides it's a done deal, then it is. But....if she did want to give 'er one more go, I wanted her to know some of us would support her. Thanks, Bob.

I will continue to poke around while I am out there to see what I can find, but I think Mona just wants some peace and quiet, which I think she deserves.

I have seen signs like that, can you post the sign up? I have seen signs that say "trespassers will be shot, and those who survive should be shot again".  :beer: 

I actually seen a sign like that which stated "Do You Want To Know If God Exists, Trespass And Find Out". This one was hand painted by someone. I think a simple "Private Property" sign would have worked, but I guess they wanted to add a little humor to the sign. Honestly though, after looking at their property, I don't think I could imagine anyone actually wanting to trespass on their land full of garbage. :waitasec:

On a serious note though, I like it when people put up signs on their property to let others know where their private property begins. Makes life much easier when navigating the outdoors. :twocents:

Hello Bob.........agree 100%. It's much easier to know where boundaries lie when navigating unknown areas. Yes, some signs are humorous and I too have seen the being shot again should one survive the first. I found a bit more comical that if I were the property owner and I took a shot and the trespasser got back up. Two observations, either that person is quite resilient or I'm a terrible shot. In either case, maybe a little pistol whipping on the second go round may prove to be more effective? Just my thoughts.

I do believe I took several photos of different unique private property signs in my adventures, along with some videos of trans versing some obstacles getting to where I needed to go in the Rubicon. Only vehicle I've owned that we had to crawl over a felled tree blocking the creek bed up a steep hill. Couldn't go around it, so my next choice was to drive over it. Wasn't a huge pine tree but about 2.5 feet in diameter. I can safely say that yes, Fruit of The Looms can crawl into places you wish they didn't find and I'm not referring to a T-Shirt. I know, more info. than you needed to hear.................I need to get busy uploading a bunch of pics and videos.

Hello Bob,

Sorry for the lapse in getting back on the site. We did make the trip to Nevada, not quite following the planned out visit as it happened sort of at the last moment. We only had limited equipment due to the hurried departure but the one piece of equipment we had use of was the Thermal Underground Radar imaging unit. The three areas I wanted to check, the images that came back shows that the ground has been disturbed some time ago from the surrounding ground density images. Although it did not reveal any perfect images of what lay further underground, there is definitely something buried further below than what the radar could pick up. It's still in the making to bring in cadaver dogs at the same time that we have more equipment to excavate.

 For now, that's all I have. Hoping to get back out there before the summer heat takes hold.

 Hey Bob,

 Maybe this thread is dying off? We're headed back to NV sometime in Sept. Had to review all the UR footage we took while we were there. As mentioned, some of the stills show certain that further below than the UR can read, it looks as though these forms could be bones. The color of these images are yellowish which is consistent with human bones as they do not turn white like animal carcasses or remains. I guess the venture stands more at curiosity than Mona having interest which may be a good position to take at this point. We might bring in one canine but even at that, the cost of doing so and as mentioned, not sure if our efforts will make any real difference.

 We have been kicking around the idea of moving to Tonopah maybe early next year. Have a HAM Radio buddy who lives there and we have plans of visiting that old silver mining town when we hit NV. Sounds like a nice small town but I have some concerns of it also being a tourist trap?

 For now, that's all I got. Great video on your last You Tube post..................hope I'm not babbling on a dead thread.

Blueharley: I'm Tom from Texas, and I read you, 10-2. I was very much interested in finding Nan's remains, 'til interest abruptly died off a few months ago. I'm still interested. I'd love to help find peace for Mona's heart, and resolve this. I used to be a pastor and counselor, and now I'm a teacher and singer. I like fixing things...problems that seem unsolvable. A Catholic once told me my patron saint was St. Jude, the patron saint of hopeless cases and lost causes. I considered that a compliment! Recently I have made a friend in Reno, with whom I am going to perform a two-man play that I wrote. So, if anybody wants to make a new effort to find Nan, I'd surely be interested. I think Mona feels she has exhausted all her efforts and resources, and that it will never be solved. Surely would be good for some fresh ears, eyes, hands and feet to enter the picture. Anyhow...I'm monitoring. And I hope this isn't a dead thread. Sure would be great if one of those cadaver search groups would volunteer to help out here. Wonder what it takes to procure one of those.  TnT

Tonopah is no tourist trap, especially if you are thinking in the manner of Virginia City. Tonopah is simply a small town, that is supported mainly by traffic on US6 and US95. Other factors are its role as the seat of Nye County, and to some degree mining at several large mines some distance away. Otherwise it has suffered considerably over the years from the cyclical effects of the economy, closing some long standing businesses. Prices tend to run higher for daily cost of living needs due to Tonopah's isolation and distance to major cities.

David,

Yes, my friend is in Tonopah to which we haven't really spoke much about the town other than he seems to be content there. I haven't had a chance to really study on the town other than knowing it's a fair distance NW of Vegas. For some reason I thought it was much closer to the strip and maybe had an overflow of tourists. We're looking for a smaller town. Been sort of scouting Tooele UT as well. Thanks for the info.

Hi, friends... I don't know how many still follow this thread. I hope a number of you still do. I haven't given up on finding Nan! But mainly I got on because today, Sept. 21, 2017, is the 39th anniversary of Nan's death, I believe. At least, of her disappearance. That sounds like a long time. But crimes have been solved after a longer time than this. Anyway, Mona, if you see this, I just want you to know I remembered. I know you still love and miss your Grandma, and that you have given most of your life since then to find her.

      My next series of videos will be based on a trip in 2000 that I took with Lew Shorb.  Lew is a board member here, as well as owner of the popular website http://www.ghosttownexplorers.org/ghost.htm
      In breaking with my past habit of culling out historical sites and ghost towns and creating short videos dealing with these, I decided to keep the exploring part of Explore Forums in and create videos of each day of my travel and exploration, including our camps.  Scenery, travel, camping ghost towns and wide open spaces.
      Part one of this series, as well as subsequent videos, will all appear here within this same thread. Part I will start in my garage, where I was finishing up with the packing my truck.  The following day, after work, I begin my travels to meet Lew Shorb at Rhyolite, Nevada ghost town.
      Our three day, two night travels prowled about the "Nevada Triangle" section of northeastern Death Valley National Park; and will include such sites as:
      1. The Las Vegas & Tonopah Railroad
      2. Gold Bar
      3. Phinney Mine
      4. Strozzi Ranch
      5. Currie Well (LV&T RR)
      6. Mud Springs Summit (LV&T RR)
      7. Happy Hooligan Mine

      This video, that of March 30th and 31st, will start off this series; and is brief, only being 3:28 long.  Nevada-Triangle_Shorb-2000_Part-1.wmv
      So, below is my narrative of part one of this series to give full context of what is seen in the video.  It will probably take longer to read than the video is long.
      --------------------------
      Exploration Field Trips
      March 31-April 2, 2000
      Into the Nevada Triangle with Lew Shorb
      Lew Shorb, of southern California, and I had been corresponding by email for quite some time, yet we had never met. Early in the year 2000, we finally did, when I went south to spend a couple days with a friend and his wife while he was recuperating after suffering major health problems. Since Lew and I both were avid history and off-road exploration fans, we started planning a trip together somewhere. Plans came to fruition March 30, 2000, when we met at the Red Barn in the ghost town of Bullfrog, Nevada. We planned to travel the "Nevada Triangle" of Death Valley National Park, using Lew’s GPS and THE EXPLORER’S GUIDE TO DEATH VALLEY NATIONAL PARK, by T. Scott and Betty Tucker Bryan, to navigate through some interesting and historic countryside for the weekend.
      Below is an account of our trip, based upon my transcribed verbal notes on microcassette.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Day 1 - March 30, 2000
      Packed my truck after work. I lived in Ridgecrest, California at the time.  Plans were still a bit sketchy, a meeting in Beatty, and dinner there was sort of the way we were going to start. Our trip itinerary was to visit the ghost town of Gold Bar in the Bullfrog District, Phinney Canyon Mine in the Grapevine Range, possibly go south to Carrara, then maybe into Death Valley and visit the site of Schwab in Echo Canyon. Lew was going to email me his final prospects that night. Due to technical problems with my ISP, I could not retrieve email.
      Day 2 - March 31, 2000

      I attempted to retrieve my email early in the morning. Technical problems persisted, no email. Was Lew still coming, or would I be alone in the night in Rhyolite? So I decided my plan was to meet Lew [hopefully] at either at Beatty or Rhyolite after I got off work at the borax refinery in Trona, California. Things went downhill that morning before work while undergoing final preparations. While putting in final items into the back of the truck, I find that my air mattress, which had been pumped up a week before to check for leaks and had held air fine all week, was flat. My 5-gallon water jug, which had held a mix of water and a light dose of chlorine to clean and check for leaks for the past couple days, leaked out its entire contents overnight and made a big mess in the back of the truck and all over the garage floor. In my mind, the big blow would come this evening after work and driving to Rhyolite, and finding Lew would not be there; and that his email stating so was locked in the big machine of my ISP who was not giving me my email for the past two days due to their technical problems.
      At 5:45 P.M. I left work and left for Rhyolite. In case of another water jug failure, I purchased a few 1-gallon jugs of drinking water and ice before leaving Trona, as well as refilling my water jug. Not knowing the final plan on where to meet Lew, if he was to be out here at all, I started to call out for Lew periodically on my FRS two-way radio when I left Trona, just in case he was somewhere around waiting for me to get off work. The FRS was a new purchase specifically for this trip, and it has been a welcome tool since. Lew and I had already agreed on which channel to use for the trip.
      North winds were brisk leaving Searles Valley and advancing darkness made it colder. The winds died down when I entered Death Valley. Forecasts were calling for decreasing winds for the weekend. The temperature at Stovepipe Wells was a balmy 70º. Climbing out of Death Valley, my high beams suddenly went out, the daylight driving lights on my 1996 Chevrolet S-10 came on. I switched to low beams and they worked just fine. I reached for the headlight switch and found it was very hot. Great! No confirmation, no air in the mattress, no water in the jug. Now this.
      Topping Daylight Pass, I radioed once again for Lew. And I got an answer. Relief! Lew was waiting for me at the Red Barn in the Bullfrog townsite. He brought his son with him, plus a friend of his son. Though FRS radio manufacturers state that generally a radio range of two miles is maximum, Lew and I were chatting clearly at eight miles distance.
      Lew and I met at about 7:45 PM, then we drove a couple miles west and found a camp spot atop the Las Vegas & Tonopah Railroad grade. We both set up camp amid the blackness of the night and the chilly northern breeze - Lew and the boys would sleep in Lew’s Jeep Cherokee, myself in the back of my truck. Our vehicles were T-boned into each other on the railroad grade. I blew up my air mattress with my 12-volt compressor with hopes it might hold air at least for the night. I made me a meal of canned chicken, instant split pea soup and instant mashed potatoes with wine - relished while sitting on the tailgate dressed in a hooded sweatshirt with a jacket over it. Lew and the boys had hot dogs. Conversation to the light of several Coleman lanterns ran the gamut from history to finalizing our travel plans to GPS units. Lew showed me the remains of his favorite type of GPS - an old 486 laptop computer running Windows 95 and DeLorme Street Atlas USA, with a Garmin GPS unit plugged in. The CPU on the computer blew that afternoon, so Lew allowed the boys to have fun with the .22 rifle. Lew had picked up the pieces and bagged them for disposal later.
      It was a chilly night. At 10:50 PM I had enough for the day and turned into my camp within the bed of my truck.  I had my oversize bag plus my wife’s sleeping bag opened and laid over mine for extra warmth. I’m glad that I had it. But I had forgotten my pillow. The chilly night and no pillow made for a night of tossing and turning and little sleep.

      Reconnoitering Trips
      Northern Nevada, Southwestern Idaho
      (and a Blip of Southeastern Oregon Thrown in for Good Measure)
      June 19 - 28, 2001

      This is the trip that I consider to be my favorite trip I have ever undertaken.  It had been in the planning stages since the previous December.  Originally, quite a number of people were invited and had semi-committed themselves to come along.  Over time, however, eventually the number of people whose semi-commitments became firm commitments to this trip narrowed to four.  And I was one of them.
      Between June 19 and 27, 2001, I undertook a trip throughout northern Nevada, southeastern Oregon and southwestern Idaho in search of ghost towns, adventure and to enjoy the wide open spaces that the Great Basin is known for. Beside myself, there was Alan Patera, of Oregon; Graham, of the California Bay Area; and Gil, of southern California. Since we were coming from different points on the map, we elected Midas, Nevada - located in the far western side of Elko County northeast of Winnemucca, as a meeting point. Gil was originally going to drive to my primary home, then at Ridgecrest, California, and ride with me.  However, at the last minute, he changed his mind and drove his car the entire trip.  Graham and I chose to meet at Hawthorne, Nevada or at Mono Lake, depending on the circumstances of our first morning travels.  Alan was to meet Graham and I in the evening at Midas on our first day out.  Gil planned to meet us at noon the following day at Midas.
      My 4x4 rig at the time was my 1996 Chevrolet S-10. It was bone stock, with standard suspension. It was powered by the 4.3 liter V6 with the higher power option; a 5-speed manual transmission; standard, lever activated 4x4 transfer case. The interior sported the LS option package, which included upgraded interior materials; but the truck still had manual crank windows, no tilt steering wheel; and had an aftermarket cruise control installed. Other options were bucket seats and console. The truck had nearly 100,000 miles on it when we started. It turned over the century mark during this trip, on a dirt road in the wide open spaces of north-central Elko County.
      Graham drove a 1990 Chevrolet ¾-ton 4x4 pickup with a low profile, pop-up camper. The truck is scarcely optioned, running a 350 cubic inch V8 and a 5-speed manual transmission. Graham has equipped the truck over the years for expedition and is well equipped to tackle everything.  However, his truck became problematic over the course of the trip.
      Alan Patera drove his bone stock 1997 Ford Explorer. It's the most stripped Explorer I've seen, virtually no options. It's well used off road and the lack of fluff has suited this rig well.
      Gill tagged along in his 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix. He slept in it, ate in it and drove it over miles of dirt roads. The car would have escaped unscathed, if not for his hitting a deer on the dirt road between Tuscaurora and Midas after he split from our group on the last day we all were together. He continued to drive his wrecked car for a couple more days, until he stopped to visit friends in Reno.
      My camera at the time was one of the original Sony Mavica digital cameras, with a resolution of 640x480. For storage of photos, it used standard floppy disks. The Mavica was in its dying stages at the time, I had owned it about three years. It started acting up on the second day of the trip; completely quit, inexplicably began working again, then died completely on the last day of this adventure. I took a 35mm Pentax camera along as a backup, but had taken along a roll of old film. None of the photos I took with the Pentax came out, I had shot one roll. When processing the many disks of digital photos, I found that about ten or eleven disks had been corrupted by issues with the camera, so that I was not able to extract the images from the disks, loosing around 200 images. Many of the lost images were of ghost towns, such as in the case of National, Nevada; so that I have no images whatsoever of that location, others few.
      My written documentation for each day of the trip will be in a rather paraphrased format, but includes all travel and most experiences.  You can gather the rest of the trip from the video and photos.  I will break the six plus hours of edited video taken and cut down to videos for each single day, along with a photo slide show at the end.  This thread will contain all content from this trip from start to end.
      In a break from my past custom when presenting video on this forum, and due to the volume and number of ghost towns visited, I will not write up a history for the ghost towns or historic places visited.  That is far too time consuming and labor intensive.  There are plenty of written and web resources if one wishes to pursue their quest for knowledge of these sites.
      Below, a list of historic locations we visited – in the order that we visited them:
      1. Bodie & Benton Railway, California.
      2. Stillwater, Nevada.
      3. White Cloud City (Coppereid), Nevada.
      4. Unionville, Nevada.
      5. Midas, Nevada.
      6. Spring City, Nevada.
      7. Paradise Valley, Nevada.
      8. Buckskin, Nevada.
      9. National, Nevada.
      10. Delamar, Idaho.
      11. Silver City, Idaho.
      12. Rio Tinto, Nevada.
      13. Pattsville, Nevada.

      I wish I could have seen it before, but I have to say, I am glad to see all those homes and the mine aren't going to waste. You can read more here. For those who don't want to read the news article, another mining company has purchased the entire town and mine. They are remodeling the homes for new occupants.
