Ran across this neat site and have been looking at all the abandoned airports in Kansas, I read the article about each particular airport and its history and then google map the location. Pretty cool  and looks like they have most of the states

Neat find.  Apparently, Richmond, Virginia was a hotbed of aerial activity so much that they broke the area into four quadrants to show all of the fields. 
Feed science, not zombies!

Failure is the path of least persistence.

A directory of open public and private airports put out by AOPA.

It also has private use airports. That said anything is a runway if you are having engine trouble in a single engine aircraft.
I will never claim to have all the answers. Depending upon the subject; I am also aware that I may not have all the questions much less the answers.

As a result I am always willing to listen to others and work with them to arrive at the right answers to the applicable questions.

It is still a runway ... albeit a fouled one.  
Anything can be used once as a landing runway. 
The corollary to that is that "All planes are seaplanes and can land in the water ... once." 

Not all landings even on a proper run way result in all the passengers safely de-planning.

... And then there are days when some people get lucky. (BTW this was an old ww-2 grass runway)
