This was something that just popped up in my mind just recently, so here it goes (Please, read on)...

Is it, in any way, ever possible for someone to be able to live in ANY very small/abandoned town out in the beautiful vast, open deserts (Mojave Desert, Sonoran Desert) of San Bernardino County, such as Ludlow, Cima, Halloran Springs, Vidal, Nipton, Amboy, etc.? What would be the legal requirements for one to be able to live in any of them? What would one have to do for water, electricity, gas, cable TV, Internet/Wi-Fi, etc.? Where would one have to go for recreation, entertainment, eateries, groceries, medical, fire, police, church, etc.? Where is/are the nearest location(s) for any of these necessities? Will one have to worry about any sort of crime in any of these very small/abandoned towns, since they are far away from the nearest police department? Will one have to worry about using the A/C during the brutally hot summer months? Will one have to worry about using the heater during the brutally cold winter months?

One more question...

Are some, most, or all of these very small/abandoned towns now private property or protected by law by the local agencies/government(s) of San Bernardino County?

Any answers to any (or all) of the following questions are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

With all your posts, you should really do a career in urban planning and statistics
Or geography

Perhaps. I'll take it as a compliment, thank you.

I don't know about SB country, but there abandoned towns along the Salton Sea you could live comfortably enough in. That might change if the Sea dries up though.

Bran-done, are you looking into living "off the grid"?

Yes, there's the communities of North Shore, Mecca, Oasis, Desert Shores, Salton City, Salton Sea Beach, Bombay Beach, and Niland. The first three of which are in the Coachella Valley. Oh, and let's not forget Slab City!

BTW, let's just hope that the Salton Sea will not disappear.
