well i got something but it isnt wheeling cuz there is only one official place to go wheeling here. its when i was in 7th grade and my class and i went to visit one of the plantation museums (sp?) and like me and my class were following the tour guide and we went to the dungeon (where the plantation owners would keep bad slaves) and we barely see like all this messed up writing and stuff on the walls cuz it was dark and that had me pretty creeped out already. so then me and my friend went in the actual chamber part and our class left without us knowing and my friend jumps and screams and i heard a voice say "get out" like really angrily and we jet out of there so fast and was trembling so much after that and i asked him why he screamed and he said he felt someone push him and i told him i heard that thing and he said he heard it too. let me tell u i never went to that dungeon part again.....EVER

I wish there was some cool stuff like this around here. All I have ever found is an old cemetary in the woods. But that was on the side of a paved road, still creepy.

But these guys are trespassing on Area 51 and could have reached out and touched the UFO's, man but I hear ya, I was just making the point that it seems like a lot of the stories were really similar in their content and in how fictitious they sounded. Entertaining for sure though

I'm going to school at Clemson in the fall and I know a couple people up there that know about some somewhat spooky spots. 'Round here it's just plain boring. If those fall through, I'm going to find some of my own in the mountains a little farther up. I want to get freaked out

I've read about 20 pages of this, thought it was awesome, and toss in some of my finds..

First time I went riding, we went to some strip pits, and found a family gathering recyclables... and their kid was riding a three-wheeler (which had been illegal for quite some time). They must have all loaded up on there because there weren't any vehicles around.. OH, and one of my friends told me about a camry in the bottom of a mud pit. it sank up to the roof, and they couldn't pull it out.. This was also the first time I had ever seen the results of a "party hill".. it was like a lake of beer cans and styrofoam coolers at the bottom of the hill...

This wasn't while wheeling, but it is off-road related, and weird.. I used to work for a surveying company, and we had to park our truck in an abandoned yard.. weeds were grown up all over the place, and the carport was caved in, so no one lived there.. but there was a small dog inside constantly barking.. (or in a fence in the backyard.. never saw it, but it was definitely THERE).. Here's the off-road part.. a perfectly good Samurai.. I swore to myself for at least a year that I would go back and find out whose it was and buy it/freely obtain it.. But I quit that job and eventually forgot how to get out there.. Oh yeah, there was a deer head in the back too, still had skin and blood, but it was dried and well into decaying..

More surveying stuff, I've gotten a confederate flag boogie board, and a gatorade cooler in the same day on the side of the interstate.. both in great condition.. On another day in the same spot, a VW hubcap came off of a car and rolled about 2 feet away from me.. I would have kept it, but the owner stopped and got it back... umm, a tire flew off of a trailer, hit the medium, rolled up the other side, got airborne and cleared both lanes of traffic on the other side.. and I watched the whole thing.. found a mature porno mag at the same spot (its close to where truckers park sometimes).. All of this happened within a 2 mile stretch of interstate (I-65 in Alabama, between jefferson and shelby counties).. One other surveying find was a coax connector that had been used as a pipe (you could still smell the pot in it).. oh, and we also walked up on a single pot plant growing in half a soda bottle in the middle of the woods.. I know all of this isn't off-road related, but unforgettable IMO.. One more and I'll shut up.. found a "toy" that had been thrown off a bridge..

OK, so I lied.. all this reminded me of when me and my cousin were a lot younger, we were walking from my house to his, and we found a bottle of Chanel No 5 and half a case of beer.. we were too young to drink, so he snuck the bottles to his room to keep as souvenirs..

and THAT is all I remember.

Sadly still Jeepless. Wanting a YJ or TJ.

If you like finding abandoned places, check out Urban Exploration Resource: Welcome to the Urban Exploration Resource!
It's a really cool site of people that have gone to out of the way places.

I'm fixing to go out tomorrow night and hit up some known local places and grab pics just to post up some unusual stuff to get this thread going again. Wish me luck!

Wow...props to Tennessee prices.

I'm in one of the poorest counties in CA, and around here undeveloped county land averages $23K an acre. Get in close to a town and you're looking at $80K+ per acre.

6000 dollars an acre and you call that expensive? Try wisconsin. Augh

Found a few things while wheeling, a tannery, abandoned house with a horse hide in the barn, human feet in another abandoned house (that house was extra creepy) and a weird garage in the middle of a woods with many odd cars all sittin dusty.

Um what else, a junkyard in a woods and last but not least the old county insane asylum and tuberculosis treatment hospital...oh and went hunting for the beast of bray road in my jeep as well. Too much to do here. Oh and the peter cooper glue factory, can't forget that one but that wasn't wheeling.

Now for the stories:

Tannery: Abandoned tannery in milwaukee off some less traveled roads, it's been in the process of being knocked down for about 5 years now but the city just ran out of money and left it. There are two parts, one with stairs and hobos and not a lot of fun to go in because everything is gone. The other part is 8 stories tall, with no stairs or way to access the 2-5 floors. The only way to get up is to climb through the ceiling and that is a *****. But after floor 5 there are stairs. There is a chemistry room, baking room, many refrigerated rooms and of course an elevator shaft and roof. I got some cool stuff and it was worth it.

"Horse" House: A house in a small town called Troy Center about 10 miles from where I live. The house is full of normal stuff but abandoned like someone just up and left one day. There are a bunch of tractors, bikes and cars from the 50s so you can do some serious exploring. There is also a barn with an old horse hide in it like the horse died just like the life in the house. It was a cool place to chill until about a year ago when some @holes burned it down and now the cops are there a lot whenever lights are seen. Oh and there is a flat-nose Jeep truck there too!
