Well, I can't top your miraculous healing and mysterious appearance of the mitten, but I can chime in on this.

The strangest thing I ever saw...I was on my way up the Ouray side of Engineer Pass, at night, when I saw another vehicle coming. I had a pullout, so I pulled over, dimmed my lights and waited. It was a late 70's model Volkswagon Bus. The two guys inside the Volkswagon bus were obviously high on something and said something to the effect of "I *%^& hope that it doesn't get any worse. If it does I'm gonna %^$ roll this thing." I said that it gets kindof rough up ahead. We were most of the way to the top above any of the difficulties. I guess they must have made it cause I didn't hear about any deaths that night, but that was a strange situation.

With my old man about 22 years ago we found a musket in Williamsburg VA dated back to the civil war. Only thing wrong with it. Missing one of the braces to hold the barrell to the wood.
Still have it to this day in my game room.

Speaking of ghosts and all, this happened when I was about 7ish. My cousin had a Wrangler, she lived in SC and I would go up sometimes to visit, and she would always take me on some light wheeling(like through the feilds stuff like that). Well one time, we found an old WWI or something cemetary. We looked inside at all the graves. After a few seconds we heard a clip-clop noise that sounded like a horses foot steps, it got louder so we ducted behind a gravestone. We saw this guy riding horseback dressed in red, with a pistal or something at his waste, he stopped and looked around. We poked out headed from the stone and saw that he had a hole in his head and you could see threw him. We bolted to the Jeep and left. Of course, we told the family, they didn't believe us.


Another ghost story just because..

In SC, in my cousins town, there is big huge house on a lake. An older couple live there with there 3-year old grand-daughter(parents died or something). Well one night, the daugher snuck out of the house, went the the lake and fell in and drowned. Ever since then, the old couple would find tiny footsteps made by water in the hallways..

Boo..

I'd sneak out too if they stuck me inside of a horse at night. The smell alone would be unbeareable.

Enjoyable thread...except for one thing.

What is with all of the stealing, vandalism and trespassing a lot of you are bragging about doing, on this thread?

I mean, if you come across a car or truck stuck out there, even if it looks "abandoned", wtf is the idea behind taking wheels/axles/speakers, etc from it? Even if it is a stolen car, it is someone's property, no matter how f’d up it is. I can't imagine what I would do to someone, if I got my jeep stuck, had to walk out for help, came back and found someone pulling parts off it...

Same thing goes with someone’s camp site/cooler/whatever… It isn’t “finders-keepers” anymore than if it was sitting on someone’s driveway…

Let alone if someone decided to waltz into a hunting cabin I owned, because it was there...

Things like that are the reason trail-riders get a bad name..

Christ guys...

How about a little more respect/morality?

Went to the Land Between the Lakes Jeep Jamboree in Marshall Co. KY last week. Being newbies we took the easy trail the first day. On the "Iron Furnace" run after a day of 10 Jeeps cruising unimproved county roads our guide asked if we wanted to hit one more before heading back for dinner. "Of course" was the reply.

After hitting pavement to the next mud road we had just got into 4LO when someone yelled on the CB that there was a car in the road. Everyone piles out and walks up to this old Plymouth Reliant buried in the first big puddle. They didn't really speak English but "stuck" is universal.

Funny thing there was a nice bypass to the hole they were in. Our guide went around and tried to pull them out but had lost 4LO and didn't want to tug to hard in 4HI so the next Jeep hooked up to to the guide and together they gently pulled the car out.

They hurriedly said goodbye and left via the bypass. We all splashed through the puddle and continued on our way! I'm not sure who was more surprised, seeing ten Jeeps with all kinds of people probably was not what they were expecting!

At some point, the property is abandoned and legally, finders keepers. At what point this happens is up for debate.

In most cases, these are either vehicle thefts or people ditching their own vehicle to call it in stolen to get out of the payment. In most cases, even if the insurance company knew where it was, they wouldn't screw with it because it just ain't worth it for them. At that point, the property sure is finders keepers.

So lighten up.

Wow I can't believe how awesome this thread is!!

Anyway's I've only been whealing with my Jeep twice..

but plan on going out really soon.

All I've seen are mines off of Switzerland Trail near Boulder.

Of course on the way down the trail some dude has some sweet Old Military jeeps that look like they are in mint condition!

I also saw a jeep stuck on three wheels hung up on the rocks walls on the side of the trail..

I didn't see the owner till i Looked in the mirror
