Best I could find was this article from the Washington Post - - fact is there are towns with many structures that are, basically, left to rot.

"...its hot as hell in here...yeah man it's the dry heat!...")

Seeing how you have 180+ acres, an abandoned town 200km or more away from a local large town seems a moot point...may as well build a town instead. Anything's possible. Add to the fact you likely have facilities like running water, electricity - abandoned is sort of just that - cut off.

I don't remember the specifics, and given the way some of the ideas are presented to this 'particular audience of characters', I don't think that person renewed his or her account here as a result, if you catch my drift.

These looked so good I had to post em. I was going to work my way through sask. as well, but there were just too many!! And if you're hosting a Canadian Irene, I'd be ready to put together a convoy from Ontario for that...whenever that happens

And yeah, I know I'm dreaming with regards to playing on an abandoned CF base...but come gotta admit it'd be pretty cool.
