They now give Ghost tours to pay for the building's restoration.

Wheeling up at Western Carolina, we found Eric Rudolph's house. We didn't explore or anything, but it had to of been, he was said to be in the area and this house, was literally buried 10 miles deep into the mountains, no easy roads, and several deep creek crossing. Sketchiest place ever!

Nah, no cords to it, but can get you to it easily. Doubt it was his house, but like to think that it is because it is literally in the middle of no where.

I’ve never found any thing really while out wheeling. Stumbled across abandon towns and what not, but nothing excited or scary, expect once. We never found any thing, expect we were found. Shortly after I got married the wife and I took a trip up to Canada. We had planed to drive up to Alaska, but half way though British Columbia we decided to drive across Canada instead. Thought was we’d take back roads and just enjoy our selves.

The trip hadn’t be planned well, but we had planed to camp out, see the wilderness and just have fun. Brought camping gear, food, fuel, the whole nine yards. So we’re way up in the northern part of BC, passed the 55th parallel and we decide to make camp for the night. Find this old logging road, run a few miles down it and set up camp.

Was a beautiful spot, not to far from this lake. There was no one around for miles it was great. Get a fire going, wife is cooking dinner, I’m drinking my first legally bought beer (since tight *** Americans wont sell it to you unless your 21). We eat, and turned in for the night. Fooled around like any newly weds would and finally fall asleep some time in the night.

I’m sound asleep and I’m awakened by this loud THUMP hitting the ground. At first I thought I was dreaming and was about to fall back asleep when I herd it again. By this time I’m a little freaked as to what could be making these noise in the middle of no where. I pop outa the tent naked with my mag light and flip it on and proceed to confront what were may be out there.

What lands not more than 5feet away from me is a bolder the size of a tire. I shine the light in the direction that I thought it came from and nothing was there. I knew the rock hadn’t been there before and I’m sure it came from some where. Never herd any one running away and never herd another vehicle leaving the area.

We through every thing in the back of the ZJ and took off back to the paved road so fast and half naked. By this time I proceeded to call the trip over and we headed for home. We crossed the border in Blain Washington where the customs officer asked us what were did, where we were, and how the trip was. I gave him a quick run down of the events of the night before. He just laughed and said it was Big Foot saying hello.

He turns around and floors it (blazer with 44's and a 454) and he didnt see the hump in the road to prevent washouts...well we launch into the woods screaming and WHAM..hit a tree and totalled the rig. The devil worshipers scattered luckily but then we were there all alone........luckily a drunk deer hunter rolled up on an atv and he went back to camp to get our buddies and our rigs. I never went anywhere with that ******* again!


I found a sweet vintage fire extinguisher in the woods, but it was covered in ants so I left it. We found 2 brand new coolers someone lost on the trail full of fresh food and everything. We never did see anyone so we kept em at the end of the day.

We should hang out

Hey new to the board but this thread brought me in. Things I have found........

Stolen lexus burned so far out on a trail that I had to walk to it.
Plenty of abandoned houses and buildings.
While fishing in a river snagged on something, waded out to unravel my line ( new rooster tail, didnt want to lose it) found it caught on a mid 70's ford truck in a deep pocket of the river.
A VW beetle ( whats with these things being in the most remote places?) way out in the middle of no where. I had been hiking and came across it. No idea how or why.
There have been others but can't remember right off hand.

Awsome thread btw.

Generally, they're found on road dead, not in the middle of a river

several broken tow straps and a pry bar.

but most interesting by far is the half demolished cash register me and some friends found at a local mud hole. it was destroyed just enough to get the cash tray out, which lay empty right next to the register. im sure theres an interesting story behind that...

All who wander are not lost...

1998 ZJ Stock for now, many mods this summer.
