There is an easily accessible cabin no more than 20' off the side of a very easy trail just out of town, it has been beat up and worn down for many many years. Some friends of mine were looking through the cabin, and in one of the walls they found a newspaper from the 1800's, only one small line was legible, and it was a headline about a hanging that would occur later in the week. Pretty cool stuff, but my idiot friends lost the paper.
Another branch off that same trail leads you to a couple of barbed wire fence gates, this is national forest land, and no where is it posted "private property" in fact, I wanted to make sure it wasn't and double checked with BLM. At the end of this road, is another old cabin, not as old though, it is flat paneled instead of logs AND panel like the other one.
When visiting this cabin, it creeped me out what we found. It looked lived in! Shaggy carpets in the one room shack, some bit of organization, some canvas bags that were folded, a clearly visible sleeping setup, with a small dutch oven. and a fire place with GHETTO exhaust for it.
Out back of the shed, there was a rope over a tree branch, tied to a handfull of ammo cans, inside was dry pack foods, rice, beans, some flour, stuff like that, further into the woods, holes were dug, about 4' deep and 3x6 is, just about man sized. Three of these holes, maybe 30 yards in between, scattered and hidden. We didn't stick around to look for more.
