This gas pump is so old it gives a price in only “cents per gallon”.
Seems to reflect the overall situation in Gold Point pretty well… it’s pretty much an open-air museum too. There are a few houses around the area that don’t look abandoned, but also quite a lot of “No Trespassing” signs and fences, too. The Post Office looks like it’s in good shape.
You try to open the door, but it’s apparently locked. So you try knocking… and you hear that same bizarre shuffling inside.
No one ever opens or answers. Whatever that sound was, it doesn’t seem eager to help. That same unsettling feeling… Nothing like that was ever mentioned in the Disney films, you think almost out loud.
You notice the sun is starting to go down; maybe you should just leave the area completely and head towards Tonopah?
Or you can brave the evening here in Gold Point and wait for someone to appear. After all… someone has to live in this town, right?
