Thanks to all for participating in the contest! The abandoned, dilapidated home is located in Quincy, Kansas. The answer was disclosed to many of you when my travel companion macos included a photo of the house in his story today. I spanked him virtually for ruining my contest. :)) The winner is sov0k, the first person to mention Kansas very early in the comments. Please send me your mailing address, and I'll send you a prize. If you live in Russia, it should arrive in approximately two months based on past experience with Russian Post.

For comparison purposes, the bottom house in this photo is located in a small Russian village I visited during my first journey to the country. I don't notice many differences in the houses, except for snow on the ground and the size. However, readers as usual taught me a lot in the comments about the differences between American and Russian house construction. Such things I never notice, because I'm too busy paying attention to Russian people when I visit, not construction. :)

Tomorrow, I'll tell you a quick story about some American bear hunters I encountered in the Virginia mountains. Stay tuned...

Диагностичны оконные рамы и сборно-щитовой способ строительства в США.

The panels seem to be the main distinction, because in America there are all styles and shapes of windows in house construction.

The difference may be in the fact that in russian house somebody still lives.

I hope not. :( If I recall, it was also abandoned. I can't remember where the Russian village was located. They all look the same after awhile.

We are not in Kansas anymore?
Just finished leafing thru galleries at abandonedamerica dot us, quite (impre) depressive.
Your picture almost seems related.
Looking forward to your next story. I am a beer hunter myself. Oh, wait!

Re: We are not in Kansas anymore?
My cousin's boyfriend is a very good hunter, shooting with a bow and arrow. This killing method is supposed to be the most humane and quick for the animal. But I don't think he's ever shot a bear. They are rare in my area, even in the mountains. Mostly he hunts deer, turkey, and other small birds. We ate one of his kills for Thanksgiving dinner one year.

Re: By the way
It's a film or show about people live in remote parts of Russia? We have similar shows about people living in places like this in Alaska. Total subsistence living off the land.

I thinks so. This was my favorite movie as a child. I used to braid my hair and pretend to be Dorothy. :)
