Brent Underwood is the owner of Cerro Gordo, an original boomtown silver mine, established in 1865. He is also the creator of “GhostTownLiving” where he chronicles his adventures on YouTube. Brent currently lives on the mountain above Death Valley with no running water, seven cats, six goats, and at least one ghost. Cerro Gordo is a desolate ghost town perched high above Death Valley and has seduced thousands since the 1800s, but few fell harder for it than Brent, who moved there in March of 2020. Immediately after moving, he was snowed in and trapped for weeks and he would go on to experience every single natural disaster you can think of.  Brent’s inspiring story of betting on himself and living his dream life against all odds has captured millions of followers around the world.
