Damn, finally finished after 3 days of periodic reading. Great stories! There aren't many places to wheel around here, but lots of woods. Sounds like I need to do some more exploring (with a GPS and camera of course).

I've seen all sorts of strange things in the CA desert...

Abandoned military airfields, pieces of downed drones, abandoned motorcycles, a basement with no house on it in the middle of nowhere, old shacks with stuff still in them, old mining equipment, a room carved out of a huge boulder, Indian petroglyphs, etc, etc

One of the coolest was with my grandfather roughly 25 years ago. We were in the mountains outside of Lone Pine (East side) and hiked up a canyon because we noticed some old tin cans and what-not in the creekbed. Found an old cabin, with everything still intact... coffee can with coffee still in it in the cupboard, bed with bedding still on it, table and chair still there. Really cool. We left it untouched for the next person to discover.

My darn picture didn't come through. Cowboys on horse back driving cattle right down the middle of the road. We just had to sit there while the cattle surrounded us. We had the soft top down and it was pretty cool.

Thanks for being respectful. It's a mighty strong temptation to take stuff like that. I've wanted to real bad before. But you're right, leave it for the next person to find and enjoy (and hopefully leave too).

Came across some wreckage from an aircraft on top of a ridge near Gorman CA. First I notices small pieces of aluminum scattered everywhere, then found some tubing and several shaped panels of aluminum with some blue paint still on them. Looks like somebody didn't quite clear the ridge many years ago. Out in the Mojave near Randsburg I came across a mine that had what looked like a house front built into the face of the mountain. Inside were bunches of car magazines from the 70s and other vintage refuse. 6 months later the place had been completely gone through by someone and the stuff shredded and burned. Sheesh!

out by Mt Potosi here in Vegas, you can still find the wreckage of the plane crash that killed Carole Lombard and several service members. the Pioneer Saloon in Goodsprings has lots of Lombard and Clark Gable memorabilia...well, at least newspapers and photos of the time.
