Discuss the town of Jericho:
Jericho, Kansas, is the fictional town at the center of the drama. It is located on Interstate 70, and U.S. Highways 83 and 40. (Refer to the Jericho town map at They talk about it being near the Colorado border, which can help explain how the mushroom cloud over Denver would be visible from the town.

A little research provides the an approximate location for Jericho: It would be in or around the area of Oakley, Kansas.

Oakley, Ks.

In Episode 1.03, Johnston Green states that Goodland, Kansas is located southwest of Jericho.

vertigelt Bailey's Tavern set is near CA south coast (Ventura, SB, SLO) 5 Mar 2 2009, 4:12 PM EST by Rickesco

I was watching The Walls of Jericho in hi-def ony my XBox 360 and spotted in the background of a shot in Bailey's Tavern a beer advert placquard for Firestone Walker Ale. Firestone Walker is a Microbrewery located in San Louis Obisbo, CA, with their main disitribution center in Buelton, CA, which is about 30 miles inland from Califonia's "south coast", the bit of east-west coast line that stretches from Malibu to Point Conception, where Vandenburg Air Force Base is.

When I used to live in Santa Barbara, Firestone Double Barrel Ale was my favourite beer, and I lament not being able to get it where I live now. One of the brewing company's slogons is "It's what we drink around here." The Microbrew has made a point in its local ad compaigns that they do not distrbte the beer outside the three counties of San Louis Obisbo County, Santa Barbara County, and Ventura County.

Therefor, the set for Bailey's Tavern (and probably other sets as well) is located in one of those three counties. I find it most likely that some of the show is filmed in a small town nestled in the backcountry of the Santa Ynez or San Gabriel Mountains.

I live in a town with a similar size population to Jericho (4,322). Supplies for various needs of the town:
Gas stations - 6
Bars - 4
Churches - 3
Grocery stores - 1
Nearest hospital - 12 miles
I can see them having gas for a while, even alcohol. Not food. Or proper medical facilities. Our grocery store, by itself, would only feed our town for about two weeks.

Jerico, in a way, represents Oakley, KS. Oakley, KS, is where Highway 83, Highway 40, and Interstate 70 meat, like in Jerico. It is also close to Colorado, so they could so the mushroom cloud over Denver. The only problem with this is that Goodland is northeast of Oakley, while Goodland is southeast of Jerico.
