And in southern Oregon 'bout ten miles northeast of Klamath Falls, this still stands, as it were:









my ex-girlfriends dad was telling me a story a while back that he came across an old wooden railroad bridge here in southern pennsylvania while out wheeling... they crossed it with their jeeps... sounded kinda sketchy to me

Holy Hell! It took me a week and a half between work and home to read all 125 pages. This is by far the most awesome thread I've ever read. I live in Georgia, where the only thing you seem to find are angry rednecks and random animals. I have found rusted out cars and yummy old mattresses, a few homeless camps here and there. One time I did find an old miniature golf course off of Duluth Hwy (Hwy 120) behind a carwash. I had to use the XJ to go behind the 'wash and go across the "greens" to get to the main building. Nothing of great interest, just old, dilapidated buildings. It was fun for all of 5 seconds.
My family in Tennessee used to own over 300 acres of land (guessing) before my great uncle passed away and we used to go riding around on the land in his late 70's Suburban when I was kid. I remember one time we went out and found this old cottage out the middle of the woods. I believe it had a hole for what used to be the well maybe 20ft away from the house. It had almost collapsed all the way to the ground. I remember my family not ever knowing about it. On the same property I found a couple of old steel traps that had been left there a loooong time ago. I know someone said they dont' work when they're rusty. I'm here to say that is total BS. When I brought them back, one of the guys opened one of them up and put his shoe in it. It still did the job pretty damn well. It tore his shoe almost all the way in half!

That's all I have for now. I recently lifted the XJ last year and now I'm fixing all the other thing's wrong with it, so I'm definitely looking forward to finding a lot of wierd stuff. Keep this thread going!

There's this dirt road about a mile from me that some guy got murdered on about 5 years ago. I decided to drive down it Monday... There's a house back there now but the NYS Police notice is still up on a tree I'm guessing where the crime scene was. It was getting dark and I left but I'm gonna go back soon and check it out.

That's all I have.

Where to start

Wheeling on an old two track and found an abandoned willys 4x4 pickup stuck in an old mud hole. Left it and drove on. Was up in the woods and came across this old geezer and he held me at gunpoint and made me split firewood. Was offroading and road a trail right down the middle of a crashed F6F hellcat airplane. Another trail ride rode thru what was left of a B-17 airplane crash. Both had crashed in storms during WW2. Was wheeling an old logging road and followed a riverbed into a canyon and found a small abandoned town in the canyon. Followed the overgrown trail from the town and it ended at a river crossing across from a country road. Figured it must have been an old logging camp. Was up in the middle of nowhere wheeling and noticed the trail I was on was pretty packed and torn up. Kept following it and came into a clearing that had about 20 volkswagens in different states of disassembly. Figured they were stolen and being stripped so I got out of there real quick.
