It would be much better if the town name wasn't posted. This poor place has taken a beating over the years from exposure on the web. It used to be pristine.

Been to this place a few times over the years. There is a group that goes out and will use it as a backdrop for aurora photos. they all go there with permission from the owner of the property.

So are you the same guy who went to a national broadcaster to "share the story about Urban Exploration" and gave them the name of the very same town that's posted here? If you're not the same guy, then I apologies to you. But if you are, maybe you shouldn't be so quick to judge.

I think some of us that have been around for a long time should stop getting our ego in the way and learn to treat new people with dignity and respect. Sorry to say bro, but Bents isn't exactly a huge secret. A simple google search will bring up numerous links from numerous different websites, including many from ghost town websites etc.

Now, I'll be honest. Fifteen years ago, it really was different and I completely agree with you. Today, when you could literally street and satellite everything to near perfection, if someone wants to find something out, they will. Let's not judge someone because they posted some pictures from a ghost town in the middle of nowhere that's been abandoned for decades which everybody knows about. If it was something of higher sensitivity (abandoned hospital etc), then that would be different. Enough said!

Good pics Master Private!

Excellent site and some great shots





I won't take all that they hand me down, And make out I smile, though I wear a frown,
And I'm not gonna take it all lying down. 'Cause once I get started, I go to town,
'Cause I'm not like everybody else, I'm not like everybody else I'm not like everybody else. I'm not like everybody else...

Fantastic golden hour light against the black storm on the horizon. Makes me miss exploring the prairie.

Kabbalah is an undramatic tradition that requires great patience and stability. One of the reasons for this tempo is that everyone has to mature his potential gradually and thoroughly at his natural pace. In this way his life's work unfolds at the right moment in his own and the cosmos's time.

So you are chastising me on something that's over 2 years old? I am not the guy in the article. After my post Master Private and I had a little conversation and not only do we see eye to eye about the subject - we have since explored together on multiple occasions. So thanks Bro - your 2 cents weren't needed or relevant. It's been over 2 years bro!! Is there not enough drama for you in Winnipeg these days?
