It's an interesting thing to check out, and has good history.

Creepy Find

Last year my girlfriend and I were 20 miles south of Athens, GA on our 2400 acre deer hunting property bush hogging and setting up stands/ shooting houses. I had already been there for two days replacing parts on my grand pappy's tractor (coil and tune up) and building tree stands. My girlfriend had came down that morning to help me finish a few things. Quitting time was quickly approaching so I asked my girl if she would drive my jeep back to the lodge and I would tend to the tractor. After a quick lesson on how to drive it, I let her loose. Thankfully she did quite well. She did so well that after I put all of our tools away, I told her to drive us out to the store where she had left her car. I tried to take a nap but after only 15 or 20 minutes of driving the wrong way my power nap was interrupted by the worst scream imaginable.

About 50 yards ahead of us were 50 or 60 manikins hanging from the pines by their necks. After I was locked and loaded.... I calmed her down. After watching for movement for a few minutes we decided there was no reason to be alarmed. We got out of the jeep for further investigation.

I will not go into all the details about the manikins but it was definitely a racially charged spectacle.
It was definitely an old triple-K hangout.

Me and My girl decided not to tell any of our friends. We decided we would keep it a secret until we had the opportunity to scare some fools.

The next week I brought two of my good buddies down to sew some food plots. All day I was looking forward to seeing their horrified faces. Finally the time came and I took them to the same spot. It took them a few seconds to realize why I had stopped and then they freaked. One of my buddies climbed out the back and took off running. It was EPIC.
I told them both my girlfriend handled it better than they did.

The next morning we went out to finish our work. The task for the day was to get some water up to the recently planted field. We used an old water pump to move water from a creek. I was digging a small ditch on the creek bank and noticed a very old 3" metal pipe on the opposite side of the creek. We followed it for a mile or so to a very small house (10x10).
To make a really long story a little bit shorter, we saw the man that lived there. He was so old he could barely move. We talked to him. He told us he was 94 years old and his family had been living there for 120 years.

We asked him about all of the manikins in the trees. He said his brothers helped him make hate films and racial propaganda back in the 1940's during WWII.
He was in tears. He explained that he had found Jesus. He was very remorseful. He led his whole family to Christ and they moved away to the Everglades. He stayed there, punishing himself by secluding himself from society.

Three months ago the paper company burned the trees and old manikins. They could not use the trees because they had a ridiculous amount of bullets in them.

Should be a lot of stuff to look at.
Awesome! I appreciate the link. I think that I will save it in my favorites, for future viewing (this type of stuff is awesome!). Sorry it took so long for the reply, but I usually wait a bit to check this thread so I have quite a few stories to read.

This is still my favorite thread of all time.

I have a morning ritual that I need to share. I call it "the terminator". First I crouch down in the shower in the classic "naked terminator traveling through time" pose. With my eyes closed I crouch there for a minute, visualizing either Arnold or the guy from the second movie (not the chick in the third one because that one sucked) and I start to hum the terminator theme. Then I slowly rise to a standing position and open my eyes. It helps me to proceed through my day as an emotionless, cyborg badass. The only problem is if the shower curtain sticks to my terminator leg. It ruins the fantasy.

Just spent the last two nights reading this awesome thread. Had to keep looking over my back, and got the chills numerous times. I have four stories:

My girlfriend and I were camping at Hog Island near the Green Swamp in the winter. We were just chilling by the fire, looking at the stars.

All of a sudden, we see a point of light move half way across the sky in about 3 seconds, then zig zag insanely fast, and then shoot off. We weren't drinking or doing anything. Believe me or not, I know what I saw.


#2 I have family in Alabama, near Fort Rucker. They own close to 300 acres, with a fare share of food plots and trails. I took my friend up there one July, and we took both four wheelers out on one of the trails, about 2 miles away from the house. We set down the tent, made a camp fire and shot off some fireworks.

We got settled into the tent, and we heard footsteps about 20-30 feet away. Mind you, we were not armed, save for our knives. So we did the next logical thing. Lit firecrackers and threw them out the tent.(In hindsight, fire hazard FTW) After throwing about 10 out, we stopped and listened.

Sure enough, the footsteps got closer. We freaked out, and radioed to the house that someone needed to pick us up. My dad came to the rescue, and said he saw a cougar cross the trail not 100 yards away from our tent.

Needless to say, we hauled gluteus maximus and came back armed during the say time to clean up camp.

#3 This is also in Alabama, same area. We were outside on the porch at night time, just talking with the family. All of a sudden, we heard this noise I can only describe as howler monkeys/ dogs fighting.Went on for about 30 seconds.

It was pretty loud, and didn't sound too far away. Nearest neighbors are about 5 miles away. Grandparents say they have never heard a noise like it before or since.

#4 Again, in Alabama. My grandparents house lies at the top of a steep hill, with a bass pond 100 feet down at the bottom.We were playing pool inside, when we heard a loud rumbling noise.

We run to look outside, only to see a Apache hovering over the pond. Needless to say, we ran outside and waved at it, and it turned toward us, and promptly went up, and away. Guess it was practicing hiding behind hills.

Sounds like raccoons.

The only thing I've ever seen was a few old houses, some old mines, and a old pickup truck that was upside down. Hooked it up to the jeep rolled it over and dragged it around a little just for fun.
