There's an old church/school near here that has a dozen or so graves that are collapsing. Probably from the late 1800s flu epidemic. Tried to tell city council, but because they weren't listed in the computer, they didn't exist.... vidiots!

Wow. Took me a week at work but I got through the every single post. Seems to me like all the awesome places to go and find things just skip over Utah (no, moab doesn't count). I've had my Jeep for almost three years but am just able to begin modifying it and I'll start exploring the mountains and see what's out here.

Kudos to everyone's stories, though! Even the BS ones kept me entertained while I had nothing to do.

Me and some buddies went out on a late night excursion into an abandoned school a few miles from where I live. I can honestly say that it would be the perfect set for a scary movie and it was easily the scariest place I've ever been. Every wall is covered in pentagrams, 666s, and all kinds of crazy ****. We were able to explore the first two floors (not too much) but we about crapped our pants when we thought we heard a dog barking from behind the door to the top floor that said it was the entrance to hell... Needless to say we got the hell out of there! Might go back and check it out again sometime..

Clearly I've led a boring life compared to what I've read here ... Either that or my imagination isn't as vivid.

A few things I've come across:
1. In the mid-80s I found a come-a-long buried in the dirt while quail hunting. Took it home, cleaned it up, it works fine ... and still have it.
2. In the mid-90s I found a mostly buried 30' tow chain complete with hooks on each end on a deer lease. One of my lease "buddies" said I should leave it where I found it. The next weekend, it wasn't there but I noticed it was now in the back of his F250 ... Can you say, TOOL!
3. Summer of 1978, 3 friends and I all took our Jeeps to Padre Island for a 3 day beach/camping trip. One night, one of the guys, who was actually in a full size Blazer, decided to drive down the beach and turn around every once in a while to see how far away his Daylighters would be visible to us. I decided to ride with him. Every time we turned around to shine the lights back up the beach, the vehicle's electrical system went haywire and ALL the lights would go out; headlights, Daylighters, dash lights, etc ... but the CB still worked. After a couple times of losing our lights, it seemed spooky to us so we headed back. We drove back up the beach with no lights at all. When we got back to camp, we tried them again and everything came back on.
