Always good stuff, thnx again! Best of luck with your book. I suggest a series of books on the different types of abandonment. You certainly have enough quality material.

I feel so lucky that you're around to show us these beautiful places, Motts. Thanks for being a constant in this crazy world. Seriously, this site is the greatest.
I would definitely buy a Motts book.

Early to mid 90s Mercury Grand Marquis. Car would still be running had someone taken care of it. Seeing waste like this reminds me of how much we throw away and not even think about it which can be useful to someone else.
