I most often find the concrete slabs of buildings that have been wiped out in south Louisiana. There are a few buildings I've seen in the local area but they are well secured and often patrolled.
There’s tons of stuff in TX and LA, backroads included!
I find my backroad adventures tend to bear more fruit when I do a google satellite overview prior to planning my route. I usually do this by finding a couple potential locations of interest and loosely basing a route off of those finds.
Another strategy is finding roads with interesting names, like, “old mill run,” or “school road,” or better yet, the old highway roads, like “old highway 76,” or whatever. A lot of old highway roads are passed over with new highways and interstates, which usually means death for almost all commercial businesses that once catered to the vehicular travelers and passerbys.
Lastly, try following back roads that run parallel to RR tracks - both active and abandoned.
Backroads are going to be hit-or-miss either way, but there are plenty of ways to increase your odds of a hit. Of course, you can always just pick a nice, sunny day, and wander aimlessly too. Even if I don’t find anything substantial every time, I still enjoy the ride.
