These woods are behind many empty structures. Emptied of humans, or legal ones. There is an abandoned house next to ours, with a sprawling yard of chicken coops and open gates for long gone animals. Next to it, the infamous Oronoka restaurant, once lauded for its signature steaks, free birthday cakes, glass boots full of beer, remembered for the three hours it took to eat a meal there. The restaurant closed in 2003 but locals say the tables inside are still set.
