I've Been Rebuilding A Ghost Town For 15 Months!

This was the busiest month yet! at Cerro Gordo! Tons of progress around the town this month. I officially broke ground on the American Hotel thanks to a lot of support, salvaged a ton of wood from a neighboring ghost town, took the scariest trip down the Union Mine yet, and a lot more!

Thank you all so much for the support of the town and subscribing! It means the world to me. I have set up a Patreon for those interested in more content, live video AMAs, exclusive Polaroids from me, and supporting more content around the town! www.patreon.com/ghosttownliving

    • Oh I so want to come volunteer. Not only do I have my own motorhome but I also come with my own tools. Not only do I know how to work on remodeling homes but we also come with my ex-wife/ best friend who does small engine repair (so does my 11 year old. BUT.... "🥁🥁🥁🥁" I also happen to be a nurse! I would really love to find out more in regards to your volunteer need and would love to bring my family out to work camp for several months. (I am also a need-to-be homesteader and have a LOT of that knowledge.)

    • Love the Video's! The voltage drop over the 700' of electical cable and connections will cause your pump amperage to rise(heat rise) and could be the cause of these issues. If you increase the conductor size and decrease the number of connections it will help deliver the correct voltage. Testing voltage under load will give you an idea if this is your issue. I would be happy the help with the formula for voltage drop over that distacne if you supply the name plate of your pump, total distance and ambient temperature. It looked like an extension cord that you plugged into in the video; if so this is almost certainly causing voltage drop over that distance. Stay safe!

Only a handful of people would have the courage to live there. It goes without saying that there haunts, believe it or not. It would be great to get to explore that place. Why have you wanted to buy a place like that? what is your plan? Greetings from Finland :)

  • Was wondering why you bothered with concrete.? You need inspectors. The town was originally built on a wood foundation(they still do that TODAY) Don't need inspectors. Tarred over wood beams will last 100 years no problem. This is how the town was originally built. It was a surface build, none of this need for heavy equipment & concrete. It would have outlived you.

Make a better use of your life, as of right now your legacy is: "Hey, remember that one idiot that wasted a shit ton of money trying to rebuild a worthless ghost town?"

If you’re offering interest in your town for those who donate time a resources, please inform viewers. Otherwise, get a haircut and clean up your act. Go look for some Levi jeans in one of your mine shafts? If you’re not gay bring in a pretty woman to back you up and add spice to your bloodsucking channel. Even if you have to put her on your KGflow payroll. Dude, you’re the man with no game. Thanks for the amusing entertainment.
