I'm wondering if you are referring to Irv Dierdorff's fantastic but neglected web page on Darwin. If so, then I can see why it seems attractive from long distance. Any place that Irv lives can't be all bad. But I suggest you dig a little deeper at that site. Try clicking on "About Darwin" after you finish the hilarious "Virtual Tour." In that section you learn about the dust storms and flash floods, the outhouses and minimill (sometimes zero) water supply, the absence of police and fire protection services and other realities of living in a ghost town 40 miles from the nearest market. I too would vote for Lone Pine.
Then again, I would give just about anything to live in Lone Pine.
For those who have never been to the Darwin page, you are in for a treat:
