Great thread. The only stuff I've ever really found was a bath tub and an old 1980's tv satellite in a clearing off an abandoned road. My dad told me there used to be a house there but you couldn't see anything left of it. And in Southern Indiana its not really unusual but I've come accross a few meth labs.

Ill have to go back with a camera when its not raining but me and some friends were out riding dirtbikes and came across a dilapidated brick building on the side of a wide path that cuts straight through the woods. Turns out the path, which is overgrown like crazy, is actually the service path for the old Mobile Water supply pipeline, and the building is one of the pumping stations. It had large 2' diameter pipes running into it, but the inside was filled in with dirt and debris. After looking through some maps and a GPS it looks like it continues straight to the water works station that is only about 3 miles away. Pretty cool place

Several years ago we where floating down the devils river in Texas. One of the places we camped we found a huge cave. Naturally we had to check it out. This cave was pretty big. Big enough to park 25 -30 busses. The first thing we noticed was the soot black ceiling. After that as started searching the place for indian artifacts. We found lots of flint, some nice arrowheads, spear points, a flint knife, scrapers, and a few leather working tools.
A few years later while rounding up cows for one of our neighbors. we found an old idian campground. In this one we found a huge flat rock (about 60-70 across) covered with about 30 smooth wall holes ranging in size and depth. One of the older guys that was with use explained that the indians used those holes to grind there grains in to flour.
Last year I was working around Ozona Texas and I found fossilized sea shell about 1' across. While I was in that same area I was driving down a dirt road and there was two pickups blocking the road. I pulled up to them and they told me that they where about to do some blasting and I couldn't go any further until they where done.

A few years back my hubby and I went camping on this old mountain where my stepdad use to hunt and found a small motorcycle grave yard. A few bikes looked old a few not so old. The place was in the middle of no where. We loaded our stuff and left just in case it was like that movie Wrong Turn.

Oh I forgot to tell you on the same mountain as the motorcycle graveyard my sister and uncle found a dead woman in her van that had been pushed down the mountain side. Shortly after they arrested her husband from Florida for murdering her.

I was exploring around Copper Harbor area in the UP of MI last summer. Hwy 41 begins there and there are some two tracks that take you up to 10 miles north of that before you run out of land. I ran across this camp called Club Superior so I hopped out just to take a look. The door was open and there was only a screen door separating me from the inside. I yelled but no one answered. I took a quick picture through an open window and was on my way.
Later that night, at the bar by my camp ground, I explained to the locals what I saw. "You went in and signed the log book right?" they asked. Apparently, the place is open to hikers and explorers and all are welcome to hang out, spend the night or whatever. I want to go back!

I hope you didn't take any of that stuff. Good way to get your stuff haunted.

It's pretty awesome up there! I have a similar picture of that sign from back in the Fall of 2007. We went up and rode all those roads way up there in my Jeep too!

Not wheeling, but since this is sort of "urban" exploration-related, I figured I'd post this:

JJ Rogers Pulp and Paper Mill ruins in AuSable Forks, NY. Jeep content: I drove my TJ there to the gates as far as I could and walked in.

Found a YJ that fell (or perhaps pushed?) off a cliff in Nevada. We know it was originally at the top of the cliff because a friend climbed up part of the cliff and found parts of the jeep way up there that never made it all the way down. Went back there a year or so later, and it was all gone accept for a few small pieces.

and another one, this time while hiking in Malibu CA. I don't think you could even get a jeep up here, the path is just to narrow with a drop-off on either side. I figure the car was air-lifed out there some time ago for a movie set or something, and just left there. I've heard people out there off in the distance before filming (probalby ameature films) so I know it's a known place to shoot movies.

and one more, I like to go visit this one to photograph it, been there several times (hiking) in Malibu CA again. I like this one because it's obviously been there for a long time, but it's not shot up or sprayed up with spray paint.
