well, if we did know of any........ we wouldnt be able to take anyone to them because if they were found they would pay a very stiff fine! besides we dont know where any illegal ones are anyways. we do know of some that have been abandoned though. maybe 2 or 3 of them. but its been awhile and may be gone now. there were 2 real nice ones up here in archbald in lackawanna co. but they were reclaimed during this project they are completing now. theres a few pics of one of them now on the gated post in the general forum.
