Does anyone dare to pick up this Wood Dale in Slab City? Watch out for Pooh Bear!  :o

So, a little google map investigation looks like this would actually be in an area called Bombay Beach, and it looks pretty large with a lot of streets...

If you look at 8:04 to 8:10, you can see in the background there are still a lot of occupied trailers and structures.

This would be an historic rescue! If the person that grabs it just wants the notoriety but not the grill I have a "bounty" on it.

boun∑ty
ˈboun(t)ē/
noun

a sum paid to encourage trade.

My brother in law went by the Bombay Beach area and didnít see anything that looked like the pics. He also said that the people in that area shoot first and ask questions later.
