    No but I did shoot cowboys, old mining towns, boot hills, and mines from a distance. I will post those later.

    Thank you for letting me show you a bit around. I keep the commentary low, keeping with the spirit of why I was really out there.

    I would encourage everyone take a week for themselves in a place that is beautifully remote, grounding and disconnected from the daily grind. I wish you all can give yourself this gift of renewal and rebalancing.

    Amazing pictures and journey - where is that place in Nevada and how does one access it? I have been to the SqueezeIn several times - interesting to watch the process, and it is a very tiny place!

    I would be glad to host an EBS in the area. How many would be interested?

    Good to see the Squeeze Inn is still in biz. I used to stop in there for omelettes in the late 70's - early 80's.

    i crossed 50 on my garage sale 10 speed in august 1994.

    somewhere is an envelope with 24 (or 36?) photos, of my whole 2 months trip, a single roll from the kodak star 110.

    it was a different time, then.

    My wife's father was from Ely, Nevada born in the boom of 1906.
    His father was killed in a mining accident and he got out as soon as he was able

    If Ted books ZZ Top for an EBS out there I'm down.

    I must have missed something. Was this on your storyboard?

    Thank you Ted!
    How sure can you be that the sign will have bullet holes? https://www.google.com/maps/@39.5417...7i16384!8i8192

    Thanks. The roads in Nevada do seem to go on forever but if you keep looking down the road you may miss what may be beside you.
