INDEX to the GPS Coordinates
for locations featured in Gary’s
Western & Eastern Treasures Magazine
Because of the rapidly growing popularity of Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) devices, a large number of people have asked me to include GPS coordinates in my descriptions of ghost towns, both for locations featured in this website AND locations featured in my Ghost Town USA column, which appears monthly in Western & Eastern Treasures magazine. So with that request in mind, I am slowly adding them to the website as I update various pages.
I began making the column interactive for computer users by adding the GPS information on these pages rather than clutter up the articles with the coordinates, so I have to assume, you are accessing this page through the column. In that case, you already know the month/year the location or site of interest appeared in. So, to access the GPS coordinates for the featured location of choice, click on the appropriate year below. Once on the page for that year, the columns are detailed in a tabular form with January at the top and December at the bottom. Each ghost town AND non-ghost town location mentioned in the column will be listed alphabetically in their appropriate monthly “box.”
In case you are not accessing this through my monthly column or don’t know when a specific site was featured – “I remember you wrote about Manzanar, CA, but don’t remember when,” you can find out through the article INDEX for all locations featured in my column AND additional articles from 1980 through current. This will aid you in locating columns featuring your favorite ghost town! Please note that I am also in process of indexing and adding GPS locations for Western & Eastern Treasures’ annual Silver & Gold special issues also.
Also note that I do not have copies of any of these articles available for sale nor do I supply free copies via e-mail (I was recently asked!). Copies of the magazine containing the column of choice may be obtained through the magazine’s editorial offices or through their website.
Thank you and enjoy!
