A couple months ago I was contacted by Heather Clark, a reporter with the Associated Press who was working on an article about ghost towning and ghost towners as a subculture of the outdoors enthusiast.  Naturally, I was excited 1) that the AP would be interested in something I have to say, and 2) that our favorite pastime may finally get a little media love.

Anyway, I was one of several ghost towners interviewed for the article, which was published Monday.  It was a good interview and the article turned out very nice.  Check it out here.

The article has a multimedia companion piece on the ghost town of Lake Valley, NM.

Thanks for the interview, and nice job, Ms. Clark!

UPDATE 07/17, 10:31 AM: Somebody just sent me a link to the article in USA Today.  Same article, but website format/layout is tighter.  Here ya go.
