This was probably my favorite place to explore ever. Hidden in the Arizona mountains sets Ruby, AZ the most well preserved ghost towns to exist.Also i hate that i must say this however the town was abandoned in the 40's but it was founded over 150 years ago making a 200 + year old town.

The key to freedom is to lower your expenses. In my former life, I managed a company that struggled to stay out of the red. This is where I learned to hone my frugality skills and use them to my own advantage by becoming a minimalist at home. The biggest expense we all have living in a sticks and bricks is our rent or mortgage. We work most of our adult lives to make a bank or landlord / landlady rich! With ever increasing real estate prices and stagnant wages the cost of living has skyrocketed. Many can barely make ends meet and live paycheck to paycheck. You can stop the madness by thinking outside the box and joining this growing movement of full-timers that enjoy van-dwelling or RV living. If you dream about a life of travel you can do it incredibly cheap just by downsizing your lifestyle into a RV or van "tiny house" and becoming mobile. In this series, I go from a home in the Los Angeles hills packed full of stuff and owning two cars to full-timing in a Roadtrek campervan in less than 6 months. I buy an old camper van on Craigslist and deck it out just like home with all kinds of technology to make life comfortable on the road. I hope to encourage those that think they "can't do it" by showing how it CAN be done by planning carefully and taking baby steps. #vanlife #silvercity #ghosttowns #travelvlog #camping #rv #hobotech #rvlife #campervans #roadtrek #productreviews ============================ THANKS FOR WATCHING!

Silver City sprang up out of the Owyhee Mountains when silver and gold was discovered there in the 1860s. For nearly three decades it thrived as one of the biggest mountain mining towns in southern Idaho. When the precious metals dried up, the people moved out and by World War 2 it was all but abandoned. But Silver City has survived and looks almost the same as it did 150 years ago. Take a 360 tour of Idaho’s Silver City ghost town and see the mining town as it was in its heyday.

Paul, Chuck, the new guy Brent, and I teamed-up to explore some abandoned mines and an abandoned whorehouse in Nevada. The Wayward Wench Mine had many tunnels of varying depths. We documented as many as we could. Afterward, we stopped off at an abandoned brothel that saw its last paying customer sometime in the early 1990s. Some of the beds and tacky decor were still in place such as velvet headboards and sparkling stucco. Real classy!

1.23.2013. I decided to walk out to some mountains today and found several old abandoned gold mines from the past. I didn't see any official claim markers or indications that the area was other than BLM (Bureau of Land Management). An old post at one gold mine had written on it, 'Gold Lake Discovery 1/1/13', which I'm not certain whether someone wrote that just a few weeks ago on New Year's Day, or that it indicates an initial discovery in 1913. This is high definition video footage for Youtube.

Geronimo Birthplace Monument by the Gila Cliff Dwellings New Mexico. The famous Apache warrior, who although was never a chief, is remembered perhaps as one of the most famous Indian’s of North American modern history. We have all yelled it before jumping into a lake from a rock or cliff, GERONIMOOOO! Now I was blessed enough to see his birth country, right there in the Gila National Park in New Mexico. #Geronimo #indian #Apache #newmexico “Honoring an Apache Warrior Memorial Project for Geronimo Helps Mark Public Lands Day GILA WILDERNESS, N.M., Sept. 19 -- Almost 7,000 feet high in the middle of the country's first preserved wilderness, before the cement was mixed and the rocks and mortar were laid, this volunteer project started with an it'edjidile, a blessing, in the language of the Apache. Harlyn Geronimo, a medicine man and the great-grandson of the Chiricahua Apache warrior Geronimo, prayed, raising fingertips smeared with the yellow pollen of the river cattail to a gray, overcast sky.” Read full source: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A34114-2004Sep19.html Here is where we stayed, which is near the cliff dwellings. It also has, across the street, an entire walled memorial to the Apache’s and a lot more about Geronimo. Here is a bit more on this legend: "Geronimo (Mescalero-Chiricahua: Goyaałé ) "the one who yawns"; June 16, 1829 – February 17, 1909) was a prominent leader and medicine man from the Bedonkohe band of the Chiricahua Apache tribe. From 1850 to 1886 Geronimo joined with members of three other Chiricahua Apache bands—the Tchihende, the Tsokanende and the Nednhi—to carry out numerous raids as well as resistance to US and Mexican military campaigns in the northern Mexico states of Chihuahua and Sonora, and in the southwestern American territories of New Mexico and Arizona." … "In his old age, Geronimo became a celebrity. He appeared at fairs, including the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, where he reportedly rode a ferris wheel and sold souvenirs and photographs of himself. However, he was not allowed to return to the land of his birth. He died at the Fort Sill hospital in 1909. He was still a prisoner of war. He is buried at the Fort Sill Indian Agency Cemetery surrounded by the graves of relatives and other Apache prisoners of war.” Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geronimo The Gila wilderness is vast, still to this day. Stories of killer bears and mountain lions, not too mention the snakes and big game, still echo about around campfires. Not too long ago, a man was eaten alive by a mountain lion, right near where we camped while there! By the way, here is the nice RV campground we hunkered down at. The hot springs down the street, by the river were great!

Chloride, Arizona was founded in 1862 with the discovery of silver ore and is an old mining camp that never quite died. Silver, Gold, lead, zinc, and turquoise have been found in the area. Today some of the mines are privately owned while others are on public land. At one time there was over 72 mines operating in Chloride. The name Chloride came from the silver chloride found in the hills among other minerals in the area. Silver chloride is used in photographic emulsions and antiseptic silver solutions. Chloride is the oldest continuously inhabited mining town in the state of Arizona.

Tombstone is a historic city in Cochise County, Arizona, United States, founded in 1879 by prospector Ed Schieffelin in what was then Pima County, Arizona Territory. It became one of the last boomtowns in the American frontier. The town grew significantly into the mid-1880s as the local mines produced $40 to $85 million in silver bullion, the largest productive silver district in Arizona. Its population grew from 100 to around 14,000 in less than seven years. It is best known as the site of the famous fight at the O.K. Corral and presently draws most of its revenue from tourism.

These ghost town buildings are the remains of a much larger town once housing 3000 people. The Castle dome mining district had roughly 300 mines mining silver and lead. But today it's a museum with artifacts discovered in many of its mines. You have to drive through the Yuma proving grounds on a dirt road to get here. It's about an hour northeast of Yuma, Arizona. It has old bars, a church, barbershop, hotel, bunk house, cemetery. There are about fifty buildings in total and you'll need about two hours to see everything. There are thousands of mining era artifacts and it's worth the trip. Website: http://www.castledomemuseum.org/ Phone: 928-920-3062

Calico is an old West mining town that has been around since 1881 during the largest silver strike in California. With its 500 mines, Calico produced over $20 million in silver ore over a 12-year span. When silver lost its value in the mid-1890's, Calico lost its population. The miner's packed up, loaded their mules and moved away abandoning the town that once gave them a good living. It became a "ghost town." Walter Knott purchased Calico in the 1950's architecturally restoring all but the five original buildings to look as they did in the 1880's. Calico received State Historical Landmark 782 and in 2005 was proclaimed by then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to be California's Silver Rush Ghost Town. Today Calico is part of the San Bernardino County Regional Parks system visited by people from around the country and all over the world. The park offers visitors an opportunity to share in its rich history and enjoy the natural beauty of the surrounding desert environment. Along with its history and attractions, Calico Ghost Town has shops, restaurants and offers camping and outdoor recreation not available at most of our other park facilities. Due to the historic nature of the town, not all areas are ADA accessible. CAUTION: Mines in the Calico area are extremely hazardous and must not be approached for any reason! Soundtrack..

April 6, 2012. I spent an afternoon in Oatman Arizona on historic route 66 (Oatman Hwy) about 28 miles from Kingman AZ. This town was founded a gold mining community in the very early 1900s. Just recently in 2008, the Gold Road Mine in the area was reopened for business, as gold prices are now quite high, making it profitable once again. It seems the town itself is thriving on tourism alone, most of whole Oatman Arizona downtown area is souvenir shops, antique shoppes, restaurants, etc. If you're through this way, off I-40 at Kingman AZ, you might want to take this trip into Oatman AZ. There's a gunfight (actors) in the street a couple times a day, like 12 noon and 2:15pm, something like that. There's a lot of wild donkeys (borros) that roam about town begging for food. There's one place I went into there in Oatman Arizona that I felt for sure is haunted (among other obvious haunted historic places nearby), a very strong presence there. I didn't include it among the video clips here.

The Wandering Buffalos travel to South East Arizona in search of Ghost Towns and forgotten cemeteries. Join us in Fairbank and Charleston, Arizona! We first wandered to the towns of Fairbank and Charleston Arizona that flourished before the devastating earthquake and flooding of Tombstone's silver mines. As quick as these towns were built they were abandon and almost lost to time! Fairbank is a ghost town in Cochise County, Arizona, next to the San Pedro River. First settled in 1881, Fairbank was the closest rail stop to nearby Tombstone, which made it an important location in the development of southeastern Arizona. The town was named for Chicago investor Nathaniel Kellogg Fairbank who partially financed the railroad, and was the founder of the Grand Central Mining Company, which had an interest in the silver mines in Tombstone. By the mid-1970s Fairbank was all but deserted. Charleston's heyday only lasted about ten years before it was largely destroyed in an earthquake, although it would see use again in the 1940s as a site for urban warfare training for US Army troops based in Fort Huachuca.

It truly is amazing how much history is found along this old wagon trail road that branches out to the many mines that were erected during Silver Cities heyday. Today these roads venture past many silver mines as nature seems to be consuming them. On occasion you may find remnants of an old automobile or a TNT box. We had set off on our journey one that would leave us with wanting to see more.

Exploring the Ghost Town of Swansea in Arizona http://www.totally-trailer.com Email [email protected] Facebook: www.facebook.com/totallytrailer ********************************** On a long dirt road, just 30 miles outside of Parker, Arizona (in literally the middle of nowhere) sits an old copper mining town. Archaeological and historical sites litter this once bustling boomtown and the Bureau of Land Management has done an excellent job restoring and protecting this massive and extinct townsite. It’s no surprise that we were once again lured to an abandoned mining area full of mine shafts, artifacts and the residual smell of history and danger. Swansea Townsite was a copper mining town that was settled around 1909. It’s one of the largest ghost towns we have visited so far. At the town’s peak (of about 750 residents), it boasted everything from a car dealership, a moving picture theater, lumber yard and an electric light company (in addition to the normal saloons, barbershops, cemeteries and restaurants). What a cutting edge town, to have their very own electric light company! As you walk the dusty “streets” of Swansea, it’s difficult to imagine a car dealership out in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by open mine shafts. What a journey this copper went on after being mined from the earth. It took a train ride along the Colorado River and ended up on a boat down the Gulf Coast, around Cape Horn to Swansea, Wales (hence the namesake)! That’s over 4,900 miles……. The townsite sits surrounded by large mountain ranges in every direction. It’s even a steep, curvy and hairy drive into the townsite (so we don’t recommend going when it’s been raining, or with a trailer or large RV). Once nestled into the town, you can’t help but feel safe and thousands of miles away from anyone and anything. At the entrance to the town, BLM has a kiosk with flyers, maps, historical photos and information as well as pit toilets. We could have spent days wandering and exploring the historical gems hidden within Swansea, and particularly appreciated the massive mine shafts, finding portions of the old railroad and the ramshackled brick buildings from long ago. The old copper mining town still has evidence of the massive copper smelter and dust chamber, which was a rather large and impressive brick building. Due to recent toppling walls and bricks, the building has been fenced off, but you can’t miss the undeniable presence this building had in the town. The mine shafts are all covered for safety purposes. These heavy duty safety measures allow you to walk over and around the shafts safely, while eerily peering down these deep black holes. There is an interpretive trail, hiking trails, picnic spots and ATV trails in the area. The interpretive trail takes you through the worker’s cottages, general office, company store, company residences, railroad depot, manager’s house, copper smelter and dust chamber, the hospital and school site along with rusted old cars and magnificent views. Just like all the ghost towns we have visited, Swansea fell victim to the Great Depression and the last milling was reported in 1944. Today, Swansea gives us glimpse back to our past as well as a reminder at how wild the west really was. Although there are a handful of small campsites in Swansea, Totally Trailer does not recommend any large RV's or trailers due to the hairy roads getting into the townsite. The campgrounds at Swansea are perfect for small vans or tent camping only. It's a fun day trip and beautiful drive in from Parker, AZ. We recommend parking your RV or camper in nearby Parker.

Calico is a ghost town and former mining town in San Bernardino County, California, United States. Located in the Calico Mountains of the Mojave Desert region of Southern California, it was founded in 1881 as a silver mining town, and today has been converted into a county park named Calico Ghost Town. Located off Interstate 15, it lies 3 miles (4.8 km) from Barstow and 3 miles from Yermo. Giant letters spelling CALICO can be seen on the Calico Peaks behind the ghost town from the freeway. Walter Knott purchased Calico in the 1950s, architecturally restoring all but the five remaining original buildings to look as they did in the 1880s. Calico received California Historical Landmark #782, and in 2005 was proclaimed by then-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to be California's Silver Rush Ghost Town.

Star Mine Ruins (Hecla) at Burke, an Idaho Ghost Town - near Wallace, Idaho. Silver, lead and zinc were the precious metals extracted from the Star mine, owned by the Hecla Mining Company. The mine opened in the 1890’s but fire destroyed all above-ground structures in 1923. The brick and concrete structures you see today were built in the 1920’s after the devastating fire. The 8,100 foot deep Star Mine was the deepest mine in North America. It closed in 1982 but saw brief activity in the 1990’s. In 2011 Hecla Mining Company studied re-opening the mine due to rising silver prices. This video is dedicated to the memory of my good friend Ted Sproles who passed away unexpectedly in February, 2016.

Elkhorn, a Montana ghost town in HD, is near Boulder, Montana. Join me as I explore Elkhorn ghost town in the southwestern part of our state of Montana. Silver was initially discovered in the Elkhorn Mountains and over $14 million in silver was carried from the mines in the area. In 1890, the Sherman Silver Purchase Act passed, creating a high demand for Elkhorn's silver. During this peak period, Elkhorn boasted 2,500 inhabitants, a school, hotel, church, stores, saloons, and brothels. Unlike most mining towns, Elkhorn was populated mostly by married European immigrants. In 1893 the Fraternity Hall was constructed for social gatherings, and still remains as one of the most well-preserved buildings in Elkhorn. In the years following, the silver boom and Elkhorn's prosperity began to lessen as the desire for silver decreased. A diphtheria epidemic also struck Elkhorn, resulting in many deaths, particularly of children. Soon after, railroad service to Elkhorn was halted and only a fraction of the original inhabitants remained. This was my second journey to Elkhorn ghost town. The first expedition was in 2001. I took a few pictures and made a slideshow https://youtu.be/f8fP7Yglon8 Thinking back, I believe the town had only a couple of hardy souls living there. Boy was I surprised when I arrived in town. Not only did I have a flat tire, but many cabins have been renovated and the year-round population is now up to ten! Most residents are descendants of early miners and shopkeepers. Everyone I met was extremely friendly and related stories of relatives who worked, built cabins or were buried in the cemetery. Elkhorn John was the first resident I met. He lives across the street west from the Elkhorn State Park, the smallest state park in Montana. The park consists of two buildings, the Gillian Hall and the Fraternity Hall. Elkhorn John lives in a cabin built by his grandfather in 1892! He, along with his two friendly dogs, opened up the fire hall and aired up my flat tire. This did not fix the problem but it did tell us where the rock hole was! Replacing the flat with my spare was my next project. I also met Tom and a friend of his. Tom lives across the street north of the state park. He assisted me in replacing my flat tire with my spare tire. His friend actually went looking for a spare when we were having difficulties removing my spare from under the truck. Tom filled the spare with his portable compressor since it was also low on air (a new tire but had not been checked for air since it was new, six years ago!) Tom related a few stories about Elkhorn. As a teenager, he assisted in the Elkhorn Mine delivering dynamite to the blasters (at 500 to 1800 feet underground!) His grandfather built a cabin on the land where he now lives. Tom recommended I visit the cemetery and also the old railroad water tower built in 1889 by the Northern Pacific Railroad. The water tower and short-line railroad from Boulder were active until rail service was discontinued in 1914. The 48,000 gallon water tower is the last-known example of a first-generation Northern Pacific wooden water tank which, because of its 6,000-ft. altitude, included a wooden skirt around the tank supporting structure. Another person I met was just leaving the cemetery when I arrived. She is from Helena and her great grandfather was buried here. He died during the Diphtheria epidemic that hit the town especially hard from 1884-1889. Now, THAT’S a lot of history in my short four hour stay in Elkhorn ghost town! I just wish I had budgeted more time. The next sojourn will be sooner than 15 years from now, for sure!

We went through 15 hours of video from 3 week long trips to the most awesome mine we have ever been to and produced a one hour show. We begin with the remains of the largest ghost town in Canada, Anyox! . We explore the general store, power plant, smelter, coke plant and brick kilns. Then we hike through the forest find the entrance to a huge crusher and many flooded and sealed entrance's to the old mine. After an exhausting trip through wait deep mud we find the main hoist level and travel 400 feet straight down to the heart of the mine!

I love exploring old gold mining camps here in Nevada. Be careful as you never know what you might find.
