This POI Factory community file was inspired by the first entered location for the Harris Ranch. Tomb993 was the one who submitted this location and started the ball rolling.

Let us know if there are stinky locations that you would like to see here.

The prevailing weather can determine when and how bad the aroma can be. Pulp paper mills, refineries, waste water treatment plants and feedlots are among the infamous. Some shutdown periodically due to economic factors while others may cease to exist altogether for regulatory actions or other reasons. We are always looking for new places but also need to know if any on the list are permanently shuttered or otherwise no longer offensive to the nose. I have found that setting an alert distance of 12,000' is often adequate warning to roll up the windows and turn the A/C to recirculate. YMMV
