Off the freeway by my house the exit either goes into the city (left) or to the right to this big white gate. It has a sign that says there is no trespassing and armed security guards. To the left and right of the road before you get to the gate there are makeshift off-road areas. Not OHV parks, but people have been going there for years creating trails, ruts, paths etc. So awhile ago I decided to go back to the area on the left. This time I went up to the top of this really big hill and it overlooked the area behind the white gate. It looks like some sort of compound with a bunch of white trucks. There are about 15 buildings, armed guards, and all the windows of the buildings are tinted black. I got curious so I took out the bioculars I keep in my trunk. I tried getting a better view but nothing to see. None of the vehicles had plates, there were no people on the grounds, and it was just plain eerie.

So I got bored and started to head back to the freeway, and when I got to this flat plateau section (still up pretty high) an orange Huey chopper was hovering above me. It was totally motionless; I got out to scope it out with the binocs again and it took off fast. Flash forward a few weeks...even though there are not any "no trespassing" signs I decided to go back. This time a deep ditch had been dug to the left and right of the road, with the dirt piled high to make a bank behind it. Obviously somebody didn't want me there. So of course I didn't learn my lesson and ventured over it. I was pretty impressed my stock suspension TJ handled it with no problem. I go back up top and use the binocs again. This time I see two guards with full autos and binoculars looking up at me from the complex. I wisely decide to leave when they run towards one of the white trucks. I got away without being harassed, but when I drove by again another few weeks later, they had created 3 ditches and 3 dirt-banks. I just laughed thinking "why don't those *****es just pop for a fence?" Still don't know what is back there though...

Unfortunatly most of that stuff is to far away from me. Blue Hole is the only close one.

Yeah thats the only thing I found weird about it... Aside from that though, I can beleive it.. Theres a natural spring in the mountains of NC thats called the bottomless pit, I guess they've tried to find the bottom with no such luck.

Also in New Mexico in the Carlsbad Caverns they have a bottomless pit. That thing was crazy.. they had some huge spot lights shinning down in it, and you couldnt see ANYTHING. They were huge bright lights too.. just cave walls and an empty void.

Here's a look at the difference in the water.

The left is the Blue Hole Water and the right is the Inskip Creek (or Egg Harbor) water that is a few feet away from it.

I don't know if posting these pictures was such a good idea. They now know who you are and where you live if there is a problem.
