Welcome To Nowhere

Date Placed: October 1, 2010
Letterbox: Traditional
Carver: GreenJello
Planters: GreenJello and Teancum
Location: Empire, Washoe, Nevada
Status: Active

If you have ever been out in northwestern Nevada, you truly understand the phrase "Welcome To Nowhere!" It is a very sparsely populated area of the state, and truly defines the meaning of solitude. Empire, Nevada is just a few miles away from Gerlach, which is the gateway to the Black Rock Desert.

After seeing this great photo of the gas station/grocery store in Empire, I knew a box had to be planted there:

Unfortunately, when we visited, the sign was no longer up (and no Shrek or Donkey, alas!), but the sentiment still remains nearby.

Directions: When you see the sign off to your right pointing the way to Empire, pull over. Look at the base of the signpost closest to the road, under old vegetation and a flat rock. Watch out for pokies! PLEASE rehide very carefully, with the box under the flat rock and vegetation put back over it to hide the rock.
