And the tail lamps are covered by a special cap with a small slit in it that allows just enough red light out so the vehicle behind you can stay in formation (aka- cat eyes)- that's why you could barely make out the light. The soldiers on foot are there for security and to help with navigation (night vision). This is nothing new though, my dad said he used to do this stuff back in the 70's with his unit (except they used Jeeps ).

Having a firearm while out in the boonies is always a good idea, but I wouldn't brandish it if you find yourself in the same situation again. They have much bigger weapons .
+1 Good to have a weapon but yeah, you'd probably would have lost. These guys were doing NightNav, when doing Night LandNav on foot we'll find a road or highway and parallel it.. little do the people in the cars know that a 9 man squad armed with M-16's, M240B's, and AT-4's are just in the tree lines on either side of them

found a cool old bike by the side of an old closed down logging road. doesent look like it has been moved at all in a loooooong time. kinda weird that a street type bicycle was miles out in the bush.

I have never found anything too cool. I have found a couple of shooting ranges, one was for the old paper mills owner, and one was the old police range.

One time I was leaving my house and a fullsized chevy passed me with some tires that were bigger than my buddies 44. Well I went out to the edge of the county later that day and was just looking for random logging roads and stuff. about 1/4 into the woods I ran into that truck. They had hit a log and snapped the balljoint on their upper control arm. They had been there for about an, as they were about 10 miles away from the nearest building. lucky for them. That would have been a long walk, as there is no cell service out there.

Found an abandoned campsite from had to be the 1930s-1940s. Small canvas tent, fire ring, clothes strung up on line, old snuff and coffee cans and pots and pans. Looks like somebody was living there and then just left everything they had.

Cool. Sounds like someone either died or went to the pokey.
What's amazing is that all that stuff is still there this long later.
