Ive come across plenty of sketchy places while wheeling or just being in the woods.
There is a trail that is actually an offical town road "Smith Rd" and it goes from one town to another, but you would be nuts to take anything but a 4x4 down it. Half way down the trail there is a split in the road and inbetween there is a burnt down house. My buddy showed it to me and his dad had taken him down the trail many years previously. Just this past summer we were talking about it when his dad was around and he told us that it is nicknamed "the witches house" and that a witch lived there and thats why it is burnt down. He says that one of his good friends used to go Coon hunting on that property all the time and he read a book about it and hasnt gone back to the area since, says he's too afraid. I have to admit that place gives me the creeps and its so odd that such a large area of land in a relativly developed area is still untouched. I havent gone back since.
I have found a million other things too, old quary equipment, really old cars and trucks, found a sink, old trailer home with barbed wire surrounding it, old well next to house foundations, guts of some unkown animal (we think a deer), old buildings, ect.
I wont say the location because it is actually very illegal to wheel there (we didnt know at the time, all the older people in the area used to wheel there as kids and thats how we were told about it) but it is a state-land type deal but not a park, not sure what you would call it. Very well known wheeling/party spot, well a girls body was found up there and I had a funny feeling when I was there. I havent been back there either (obviously) but one of my biggest fears while wheeling in a secluded area is finding a body.
At the end of the road where my x lives (used to drive by it all the time in my jeep) there is this abandoned very elaborate house/mansion with cuban/miami style architecture and there is a tower at the top and at night there is a light on. The house has always been like this for years and years and the light is still on, there is no way a lightbulb can last that long, it would have burnt out by now.
Not to do with a jeep but I figure I'll throw it in here. My parents used to tend bar at the local Rod and Gun club and one night my dad was finishing closing up (everyone else had gone) and I was hanging back with him. We got in his Dodge Dakota and pulled out onto the road. Immediatly I saw two "headlights" in the sky and pointed out saying I thought it looked like a car. He stoped the truck in the middle of the road and we both got out and stood just outside of our doors and looked up at it. It was REALLY REALLY low to the ground and pretty damn loud, but there were two "spotlights" pointing directly down at us. That was it no wing marker lights or anything else. We actually couldnt see anything because it was really cloudy but after a few seconds the lights shut off and it imediatly took off higher in the sky (we could tell by the noise). Really erie, there is a airforce base about 30-45 minutes away and we figured they were doing a night run or something. It definatly seemed like a plane but it was just really weird.
