I got one. I wasnt wheeling, but me and my dad were at our hunting land in Albamare (spelling) N.C. There is a thicket of woods about 25 acres probally, then a field of about 10 acres, and a patch of trees in the middle of the wide open field. Me and my dad drove to the patch of trees, and found alot of arrow heads, and then found some rocks sticking out of the ground that had something like indian writing on them. So my guess is, along time ago, a bunch of indians died here and thier people buried them? it was kinda cool. and i kept some of the arros heads....

Back in 1996, somewhere around Pheonix, near Martinez canyon there were some cowboys setup in the middle of the desert. They had a wooden corral that looked fairly recent and they had a 5th-Wheel that I still wonder how they got it back there.

Wow killer thread !!
weve found your normal assortment of crap, trashed out rigs, sofas, shelters, etc.
I came across like a small community of abandoned houses near a lake, way out. didnt look that old, but gave me the creeps. there was a clearing with abunch of rotted out 5 ton truck. Also not wheeling related, but up over near Astoria on the Washington side is a ship with a good portion up out of the water, I've always wanted to go exploring, but Im always with my girlfriend & the bum shacks & human scat dont inspire her unarmed confidence. Ive found all kinds of weird abandoned buildings while Kayaking, old ships just rotting away, moored at abandoned ports. Sunk ships just under the surface. I need a wing man & a side arm to go exploring these place, alas the two seldom fall in line . . . I love old ship yards though.

Ahhh yeah, we were out bushwacking & found where a commune used to be at the base of Mt. St Helens. We later found their trash dump, found part scattered about of some sorta 30's vintage car, I scored a bunch of 70's era soda & beer cans. The old type with the sticky peel off lids, we found a bunch of other stuff too that slips my mind . . .

I was with some friends in the desert north of Phoenix (Table Mesa Road). It wasn’t while I was off roading, in fact, this was a couple years before I got my license. We went out to play paintball and found an old house at the bottom of a hill. It was pretty cool. No roof, two windows, two doors, and a fire place. It was probably about 500 sq. ft. The house sat right at the intersection of two smaller roads and had a clearing in front of it. It was really an awesome set up to play paintball. The west side of the house, going up the hill was thick bushes and trees. That side was hard to climb up, but made for great cover. The east side of the hill was extremely steep, almost vertical in some areas.

It was an awesome day until my friend and I where trying to flank the guys in the house so we went far to the west up the hill and started to come back towards the house to move in from the top of the hill. We where about 50 feet from where the hill started to descend down to the house. At this point there really was no cover and we were out in the open. My friend on the opposite team started up the hill towards us so we ran for the only tree there was to hide behind. We got behind the tree and my friend started to approach it. Unfortunately, the tree wasn’t very big so my teammate and I had to crouch behind it and I was crouching right on top of a cactus. I knew that but my friend did not. When the opposite team member began to shoot at us he pushed me down onto the cactus, causing a needle to break off in my butt. Right at that point my teammate got shot, so I raised my gun and prepared to fire, all the while holding in jumping up and down from a cactus needle just being jammed into my butt. To continue my misfortune, right at that point, I also ran out of CO2, so I couldn’t shoot back. So I gave up and limped my way down the hill back to the vehicles to get a pair of pliers to pull the needle out. It was fun.

At another place I was paintballing at in a river bed, me and my frends found a car buried in sand. I really can't figure out how it got out there, but it was. The hood and trunk were buried, but the cab was still exposed. It made for a pretty decent bunker because it had no windows in it and was fairly well protected because of the angle it was sitting at in the ground.

There's a place we used to go to in high school in a small town west of Des Moines where there was four or five abandoned houses in some woods off the road. They were really creepy though, because they were, like, 2/3 scale, almost like they were built for midg..ahem... little people. I asked my boss who has lived around the area for a while if he knew anything about them, and he thought they had something to do with the coal mining that used to go on in the area. The houses have since been demolished due to urban spawl.

This was insane. One day, I ended up getting off of the highway and apparently got lost. The trail I ended up on beat the living crap out of me and gave the ultimate test to my TJ's suspension. I was having a blast bouncing all over the place when I came across a bunch of abandoned buildings. Let me rephrase that, I mean a lot of abandoned buildings. I thought that was strange so I fired up the trust GPS system to check my coordinates only to realize that I was in Detroit and had only driven over a bunch of potholes.
