Great Nick. I love how you go retro right down to your skivvies. Good on you not telling either. A lot of good spots out there have been hit hard due to the internet and GPS. Very sad indeed.

Well done Nick.

I know a few other sites out there similar to Carey's, one that still has pots and pans in it (last I was there); might hike Mike M. out to one this weekend during the JTree run. I certainly don't think their whereabouts need to be broadcasted on the internet or through books and maps either.

Love the gear.

I truly enjoy the nostalgia hikes you report. I agree, some things aren't meant to be posted all over the web. Some things should be left to be discovered then left alone.

Nick,

From your photos I see that the rusted out old yellow on black lettering CA license and that faucet are missing.

Also 8 years ago, the rat feces needed a shovel and haz mat gear, hantavirus...

Freaking great stuff, Nick. Very cool. Thanks.

The Internet. Best and worst invention of all time.
