The only odd thing I've found out in the woods wasn't when we were wheeling. When I was about 10, my dad and I were heading out to a rock quarry to shoot, and as we were going down the road to the quarry, I looked out my side window. Down off the road about 20 yards, maybe a bit farther, was a group of seven or eight people in a circle, with one guy in the middle. They seemed normal, except for the fact they were dressed in like 1800's clothing. All the girls had corsets and those dresses that poof out a bunch right at the waste. The guys had leggins and old style shirts and stuff. The weirdest (as well as the most disturbing) thing, however, was the one guy in the middle of the group. He had on leggings like the other guys, but was shirtless. There was a big steel bar about shoulder blade level, behind him, with three large hooks that plainly went under his skin for a good four inches, before coming back out above his shoulder blades. The steel bar had a piece of rebar or something coming off of each end, making a triangle above the bar. There was a rope tied to this triangle. The rope went over a heavy madrone branch, and the other end was being held by the three other guys that were there. As we were passing (we were driving really slow due to the board being horrendously washboarded), they pulled on the rope, picked him up in the air with the hooks in his back, and he started swinging around. The guy was obviously alive, and he wasn't fighting at all. I assumed it was some sort of tweaked satanic worship or something along those lines. Whatever it was, it was seriously disturbing to my diminuitive 10yr old mind.

It was beyond creepy. Words don't do it justice, to be honest. Even my dad was kinda freaked out, and that was something I had never seen before. I've never seen that again, as many times as I've been up there, and I'm glad of that. It was disturbing enough the first time.

These are at the top of Windrock (East TN). Look great in pictures... but man. Leaves you kinda speechless when you see them. You can see them from counties away.

I've heard about Centralia and I've seen some pics floating around on the forum. I want to go there so bad. The whole gohst town/tradgic history thing intrigues me. Although I didn't know they had these windmils there as well. I will agree the are MASSIVE! No one will understand how big they are until they stand next to one.

I believe they use the wind to generate electricity or some other form of energy...I'm not sure but thats my best guess. I'll ask next time I hit windrock.

Yea man you wont regret windrock at all. There is more there than just the windmills We also have another OHV park called Royal Blue. It's a further than windrock, I have yet to go there but it's insane from what I've heard. East TN has some great OHV areas..you just gotta find them lol
