Don Sammons left Los Angeles in search of a quieter lifestyle, and he certainly found it in Buford, Wyo. He and his wife bought the tiny town that consisted of six buildings and seven people, but by the mid 1990s, everyone except Sammons, his wife and son had moved on. Fifteen years ago his wife passed away, and three years ago his son moved, leaving Sammons alone. But Sammons says he loves the slow pace of windy little Buford and he’s never lonely. He runs a gas station and convenience store that gets about 1,000 visitors a day during the summer.More towns where your visit could double the population.
