last weekend, a couple of my girl friends and I took the jeeps out for a day-long trail rid. When we stopped to eat lunch in this little clearing kinda off to the side, some us decided we wanted to "explore" a little and see what kind of trouble we could get in to While we were wandering around in the woods, we came across the oldest and creepiest cemetery I've ever seen. It was just sorta in this meadow in the middle of the woods.

That's pretty cool. I bet if you poked around a little harder you'd find that you were wheeling thru an abandonned town.

oh yeah, no doubt. I plan on going back next weekend to see if we can find more stuff, maybe do some trails and then camp out and adventure.

Where abouts were ya? I wanna search around and see if I can find anything about ghost towns near where you were wheeling. Almost garunteed to be an old coal company town. Probably an old rail line or two as well.

Now I'm all interested, and I need to kill the last 2hrs and 15 minutes of my shift anyways

lol, it was somewhere around Wytheville, VA. Idk the exact place, I wasn't the one leading our little expedition. I'll ask one of the other girls that lead.


I do know there's an old abandoned coal town in GWNF called "Lignite" or something like that, not really any wheeling required to get to that one so I might let my little sister start out on that(wants to be a jeeper like me ), lol.

That's a start! Take some pics for the thread when you head out.


Looking for stuff in the mountains/hills of Va is harder than I thought lol
Sure is some pretty country though.

Will do.

Lol, yeah, a lot of the places I wheel are mostly private property. VA doesn't really have that many Jeep trails, but the ones we do have are always through gorgeous places.

My bet is that it is an old civil war era cemetery. My grand father lives in north WV and he was point them out back in the woods everywhere. They just buried them anywhere.

I'm originally from near Wheeling. Lots's of old civil war era pioneer cemeteries just got overgrown and forgotten about. I know of one where there is a general from the ohio militia buried that's like that.

Where are you at in VA? There's a bunch of us in the Richmond and surrounding areas.
