    When I passed through the place was a general store and that was literally it. It was a rest stop not a town.

    Yeah, there are like 23 people living there.
    Too bad it's a dseert, otherwise it'd have been a sweet place to start a cult commune.

    Yep. These are two photos I got outside of Nipton.




    I spoke with the guy who ran the general store, he asked where I was headed and what my business in Nevada was, told him I was visiting Vegas and then some spots from a video game I liked, he guessed Fallout. To which he said:

    "Never played it myself but I hope we end up alright"

    They were selling lottery tickets on the counter, too. Got a silent laugh to myself from that.

    A desert seems like a perfect spot for a cult to me.

    Selling an entire town feels like such an American West thing to happen.

    A good cult should be self-sufficient, though. It's kinda hard to grow stuff there I guess.

    True. Nice and isolated, though. I picture a bunch of greenhouses, tended by weirdos in white robes.

    The Nipton cult only wears Football jerseys worn like tuncae.

    We should invest in Fallout tourism while we can.

    Can NMAers come together and buy it through crowdfunding? I don't know why, but could it be done? How many active users do we have atm?

    I think Goodsprings saloon would be way more affordable.

    Could serve as the location for the Burned Man festival...
    Maybe throw in a yearly reenactment of the town's destruction
