UPDATE: Act Of Evil “At The Desert” – gofundme Now Set-Up
This is such a terrible thing to happen to anyone
Austin Schmidt had his dream car destroyed just recently - his mother now has a gofundme page set up - I feel so bad for this young man, ANYTHING anyone can do would be appreciated--
This may be a longshot, but I figured I would try. While my son was down at the desert, he was jumped, and his car was stolen. The people that took the car decided to destroy the car, and every single part of the car is ruined. This car was a gift from my dad to his grandson and has a very high sentimental value. We now have no vehicle,which makes it hard to even get to work. I’m hoping this will help my son be able to rebuild his dream car that was his everything from his papa. Thank you!

Here is what I wrote last Monday...
I first heard about this place yesterday, a co-worker sent us an e-mail
The e-mail talked about a car, SOMEONE's vehicle left completely ruined and destroyed and dumped at one of the most scenic spots in all of Bismarck. I was really taken in by the drive out there, I actually had never been out toward the University Of Mary, so while following my Google Maps directions, I was heading into unchartered territory ( for me anyway ).
My main purpose was to see for myself if this poor car was still there and find out what "The Desert" is all about
I had no idea how serene it was as I glided down the Desert Road hill - when I got to the bottom - another half mile or so, and off to my right - there it was - just one car - all alone almost dead center in the small paved parking lot.
There was an eerie beauty to this place, with a light breeze and almost absolutely no noise, I looked straight at what once was a gorgeous silver sports car - a Mustang - my favorite. I found out when I got back to the radio station that this car was reported to have been stolen by a group of teenagers - a joy ride if you will. As much as I absolutely do not understand their motives, at the least, they could have simply just deserted it somewhere simple, and called it a day. A young man was jumped and his keys ( of his prize possession ) were stolen - if the reports are accurate, these thugs completely ruined his life ( the owner ) and destroyed in my mind such a blissful place:
The last I read is that the police apprehended them. I also heard from an unidentified source that "The Desert" could be closed to the public.
