I was "adventuring" on my friends land a couple of weeks ago(good trails, not too challenging) and came across what looked like a campsite. Like, a tent, fire stuff, etc. Apparently my friend has had some trouble with people coming onto his land(without his permission) and illegally hunting his deer.

Those piles are not left by hunters; hunters do not shoot a ton of shots standing in the same spot unless they are retarded. They are left by folks out target shooting. You are kind of correct about the taking away our rights but what is happening is you will not be allowed to shoot on state land due to the crap left behind.

I was out on my atv running logging roads and caught a couple having sex in their jeep. I just waved and kept on going.

A) at the perfect moment the sun will shine across the valley and cast an X on the mountain... Where a hidden treasure is.

Oorrr

B) the antenna of an alien spaceship buried under the mountain.

It is on top of a mountain, you have to hike to the top of it. You can see how high by looking at the car in the background. Dunno how something tha heavy got up there.

Also in that same valley, we found a pioneer grave with a note under a rock talking about the mother of i think 5 had died and was buried there while trying to cross the desert and getting lost from the trail.

Also, the thorn based plant that is believed to be used for the crown of thorns for Christ's torture is only found over there in the east. But in this desert there is ONE group of these thorn bushes, not found anywhere else in the world.
yup microwave communications horn. Oldschool tech

Finally finished it over a few weeks time.. Good stories. Gets me wanting to find some old trails around here, which there really isn't though... At least none other than Wellsville and other overly used places. I've seen many old railway beds, but most are now bike/hike trails.

If anyone in the Stark/Tusc/Columbiana county areas know of somewhere like old train beds to cruise, let me know!!

I came across a guy pulling a 17 ft boat with a pretty nice newer chevy truck on a trail I knew he was not going to get down. I pull up next to him cause he saw me and tried to get out of the way. I told him about the trail and asked where he was going with a boat since I knew the area pretty well. He tells me he is headed to Tomohawk lake. I know very well where this is and in fact had been there earlier that day, anyway I tell him he can go back to the main road and turn right make the first right after that and he would be there we are talking like 5-10 min of driving. He argues with me that I don't know what I'm talking about so I say looks like your the one who is lost good luck. I leave turn down a bunch of trails and such then head out for the day. On the way I see him again this time he tried to run over a tree that was in the trail which is why I knew he couldn't get thru. he was stuck good. I winched the boat backwards and then pulled him out. The funny part was he was like 2 miles past where I told him to turn around had been there all day with no cell service whatsoever.

Sorry Im long winded

He didn't say much while I was helping him; the only thing I could think of was I had went over the tree earlier so there were tracks and some broken branches. By the time he came to the tree it would have been nearly impossible to back up and turning around was impossible. He kind of didn't have a choice at that point. It was pretty funny my mom who is in her 50's was up for the weekend and she was giving him all kinds of crap in a nice way about being a f!@#ing moran.
