Didnt get a picture but about a year ago on a wheeling trip in Wharton state forest our group got stuck behind a Porsche cayenne. The guy was driving like two miles per hour and skirting around the very edge of puddles. Of course we were bored going so slow so we ended up taking turns going through puddles behind him as fast as we could trying to splash as much mud as we could on his shiny new crossover. The best part was that it was a few miles before he could pull over to let us by because the trail was so narrow.

Very mature.

There was a place we used to go way in off the road, and in the middle of no where. It was a huge concrete base that always held water, and in the middle was a huge concrete structure that looked like the beginnings of an elevator shaft. Someone said it was the beginnings of a hotel that was abandoned. But seriously, was so random in the middle of no where. At the middle was usually 4-5ft deep or so, sometimes deeper if it had been raining. Will have to see if I have pics, as I do have some around the area as the trail skirted through the water and up a hill behind it.

It was spooky as **** !! And didn't feel right.
I looked it up later and a km or two in the middle of the jungle is a ghost town. They relocated that building into that clearing and used it as a weather station for a decade of so ...
Wicked drive though ...
Cool story. Had a friend from Cairns and he and a mate were having problems with wild dogs (dingos? American talking here) taking down sheep from the ranch there. They were using a AK-47 and shooting them from Ultralight glider for some time. On the last trip the shells were ejecting and chipping the prop so much that the carburator shook loose and they went down in a pond kind of thing (again, American re-telling the story) that was full of crocs. They were #3 and #4 to walk on water, only one made it.

I love Aussie stories.

I lived in the Hills for 10 years and never saw any of that! Seriously! Wtf? Haha I've hiked, biked, and geocached the entire flume trail through the Black Hills and never came across those particular mines. I will say, geocaching takes you to some amazing places! Might have to come down with my jeep sometime this summer to do some wheelin!

Too bad he wasn't packing.

Definitely some very cool stuff that has been found. So far my vote has to go to the pay phone or airplane.
