Trona California, otherwise known as "The Detroit of the Desert", current population 1,739 and falling. It is home to the only DIRT football field in the continental United States. This is due to the fact that the town is on the edge of Death Valley and the fact that it's home to a dry lake bed which has irreversibly contaminated the soil with alkaline deposits. In case that was too vague, let us simplify... nothing grows here. Even WEEDS don't grow here.

Who Cares About Trona[edit]

Come see the future!

Trona is worth reading about in order to prepare you for what life will eventually be like in many parts of the United States. That is, a seemingly post apocalyptic wasteland of ruin and desolate destitution the likes of which will drive you to crushing depression and despair. Odds are, you have actually already seen Trona, you just didn't realize it. This is because Hollywood has, for countless decades, used the Trona area as a backdrop for barren alien worlds, tapestries of the end times and doorways into damnation. From the original Star Trek to more modern films like Planet of the Apes it's a favored hell amongst media makers.

Hey Trona, Yer Shit's On Fire[edit]

The entire fucking town is littered with dilapidated, run down, largely condemned fire traps just waiting to happen. To the point where houses randomly catching fire and burning to the ground is a regular occurrence in the town and largely considered a convenient way of culling the cockroach population. We ain't even being facetious here...
