Anna and I stop to explore an abandoned KOA campground we found on the roadtripper's website. Located just east of Winslow, Arizona, it's a neat spot with a lot of interesting graffiti.

Video Notes:

If you're interested in visiting, it's really easy, since there's literally nothing around, including anyone to shoo you away. We were there for about 2-3 hours and three other groups of cars stopped to explore the area in that time. We didn't see any police and we even camped there overnight.

You can find more information at the following links; a word of caution though, the road trippers website is extremely buggy:

Right next to the KOA is an abandoned mountain lion zoo, with a really strange history, including an apache death cave! So there's a lot to see here!

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I regret to announce that I will no longer be associating myself with squat the planet due to a very deep and nuanced personal disagreement and subsequent disrespect. If you would like to get the full story, feel free to contact me directly. I will still be hosting this year's annual party as i have for the past four years.
