Anyone remember the guy from American Pickers who lived under ground?
I didn't find him but I believe I did run across his older brother a few days ago.

Not really a wheeling story but I'll tell it...

I live in Southeastern Ohio. Jackson County, Bordering us is Vinton County which is more forest than anything else well in Vinton County is a place called Moonville Tunnel, supposed to be haunted or something but I have never had anything weird happen unless it involved people which this story does. Every year around Halloween Me and some buddies get all hyped up hop in someones 4wd vehicle and head out to Moonville to get a little adrenaline going Every year nothing happens until this past year and it did not include my buddies, now to the story. I was sitting at my girlfriends house and her cousin texted her and said lets go to "Moonville I've never been" after much arguing about how we shouldn't go with just two girls and a guy around this time (a few drunks like to roam the area around Halloween) we found ourselves walking that eerie trail that crosses a creek in the pitch dark it seemed as if only a few people were there by the number of car's which was 2 so we didn't think anything of it till we passed a couple that looked like well they had just seen a ghost. I gave a wave and said hi but no reply that is when I started feeling this odd sensation in my stomach but we continued our march... as we approach the tunnel a young man jumps out to scare us we laugh but I notice he will not show his face no matter how much I try to look him in the eye. as we walk through the tunnel I notice about 5 people in the tunnel non of which will show there faces that is when I decided it is best to leave. As we go to leave a man stops us whose breathe smelled like a fresh bottle of Jack starts yelling go down that F****** Trail! (referring to the trail that continues through tunnel out into the dark unknown) This when I get defensive and after much arguing with the drunk man and almost fighting we tail it out back down the dark trail to the car as we come up the hill we all feel they are following us and that is when the brightest light ever shined into my eyes yelling Stop! Turned out to be a park officer thank goodness who was kind enough to understand the situation and guided us back to the car as I go to warn him about the other group of people I hear the loading of a gun and the strapping of a bullet proof vest and the park officer said I understand the situation please get in the car and leave. Sorry for the long post but that is about as unusual and terrifying of a night in the woods I have ever had. here is a picture of Moonville

A couple years ago, some buddies and myself went out to santa cruz to see what was left of "Holy City" an old ghost town (Holy City was founded in 1919 by cult-leader William E. Riker and about thirty of his followers. Calling his ideology "The Perfect Christian Divine Way", Riker preached celibacy, temperance, white supremacy, and segregation of the races and sexes.[3]) ). We learned that the majority , pretty much all of the town burnt down. Just a glass shop is at the location now. We go inside and poke around then ask about holy city. The owner just shrugs and says he doesn't know, so we head back out to the jeep and get ready to leave. While we are getting ready to leave, he comes out and changes his persona and starts to tell us about holy city etc. I guess he saw we weren't just messing around and were interested. He then tells us to follow him to show us something. So we follow him through the back of the store, we go on a small trail to some redwoods and in the redwoods is a sort of gathering/ temple area. There was an alter with a bunch of knick knacks and various stuff people have left behind. He goes on to tell us that this is where that cult leader William Riker did his weekly gathering and preaching to his followers. Was pretty interesting and eird at the same time. The owner said he doesn't take many people back there and few know about it. So I guess we were lucky to be able to check it out. .

A friend of mine, his sister, my wife, and I were planning to go to Moonville tunnel one weekend with a small group of other fans of paranormal activity searching... we never made it though, the guy who was organizing it had health issues or something, as we never did hear from him, his website closed around that time.

I always tonight it'd be cool to be able to drive that rail bed in the CJ...

It really can't be drove at the moment other than the useless gates in your way there are some large trees down on the rail bed and it just kind of ends on the other side with a straight drop off a cool tunnel just past moonville can be drove up to though and if you are close to the area I recommend taking a small trip it is called kings tunnel all wood about 40-50ft tall and 100-120ft long pretty neat here is a picture of the tunnel with me in my jeep as you can see
