So I just visited the Squat the other day.
If the administrators would like to add some location info, it's 0.3 miles past mile marker 8 on Hwy 65. Decent paved pull-out on the right--from which you can see the wall. Markers 8 and 9 will be on the left (south) side of the road of you're coming from Montezuma.
Thanks for noting the dead body. We kept catching whiffs of rotting flesh; eventually found a dead dog wrapped in a towel. The place has character alright!
