I was wheelin down the applicatian trail. Me and my buddy in my XJ and two of other buddys in their TJ. I got a a head them a bit. So we stopped for a break. Two strange mountain men approached. One had a shot gun. They didn't seem like they gonna be very nice. One of them rapes my fat buddy. The other was going to force me to so some disgusting. Fortunly the other Jeep came and my buddy shot him with an arrow. The other guy got away.

No one really knows. It was in an old town about 100 years old called Pasadena. There is couple conflicting stories. Some say it was an old pottery. Some say an old brick factory. It is really cool and worth checking out if you have the means.

PS The thread is AWESOME and needs to be stickied somewhere.

It hit hard when it went down and the Air Force came in and cleaned a lot of it up. Plus, it crashed when the B-17s were still fairly new. There aren't any engines or guns or anything cool left. There is just enough there that you can tell it is an old plane crash.

EDIT: The wreckage sits in a meadow above the trail into Grizzley Lake.

I found a lot of stuff like that when I lived in Utah. There were old Pony Express stops all over the place.

I don't recall anything too unusual when wheeling but when I was in Afganistan it was a daily occurence to find something weird. Went out one day to check out some uxo's spotted by aircraft about 2 hours from base. This place was way the hell out there. Some of the villiages we stopped to talk to locals and they said they thought it was just rumors that the US was in there country. Any way found a 80-86 ford pickup abandoned and a little out of place. Found a villiage where over half of the residents were caucasion. Sometime we would find mig jets that didn't look like they crashed but how could they land where they did. A two headed donkey (have a picture somewhere), Lots of abandoned russian military vehicles some were in great shape most were not (it is weiry to know most of the russian soldiers were drug from there vehicles and executed right there.) Found a russian tank on top of this mountain one time that had us all wondering how the hell it got up there and what they were chasing up there. I was standing in a village one time pulling security while our patrol had stopped and a local looking guy walked up and said, "Hey what is up?" I said, "what did you say?" He Said again, " What's up?" in clearer English than I speak. To make a long story short I stood there and had a 20 minute conversation with him about life in the US. It turns out he had lived in Florida and moved back to Afganistan in 1995.

Damn, I wish I had seen this thread earlier.

Mine was when we went hiking in the backwoods of South Eastern Ohio.

My buddy and I cam across a marijuana field. It was obviously well taken care of, because someone had hung camo netting from posts about every ten feet or so. The field had to be about the size of a football field, with trees scattered throughout it. The plants were about 4 foot high each. Sufficed to say we got out of there.

I came across this:



If you look closely, you can see it from the top in this satellite picture (it's on the south side of the clearing):

Back in WWI it was part of a TNT factory, but the area blew up and most of the buildings burned.

Went wheeling one night around the Halloween time with some friends to a Graveyard out in the woods that we had heard about and there was some really freaky stuff. Lots of pentagrams and the sort and one of the grave stones and a pipe that went down into the gound right next to it and the inscription said something along the lines of i am only sleep and will return. it was a pretty freaky place. My friend also has some land along the railroad and on it there was a very large civil war era hotel now only the brick outside is left on it and there are char marks because it was burnt down by a arsenist shortly after the civil war. There are also big pits close to there very old farm house that were used on the underground railroad.

Similar experience as the OP. Exploring a regular spot by my house in Jersey, and decided to wander up a hill. Got to the top and it was a bunch of towers and a wooden building. There was a wood rail fence aorund it and a bunch of government property signs on the fence. IIRC, it was an FAA station. Didnt appear to have been manned by anyone, but it was in decent shape. I could see the entire town from up there. On the other side of the building was a long gravel road that led me back down to the main trail. When I left, I tried seeing the station fromt he ground and couldnt see it at all. Even from places I could see when I was up there. Kinda strange.

sounds like a 'still - house' We once found a makeshift marijuana greenhouse, made out of tent-poles and clear plastic sheets. Naturally, we clipped the green stuff and ran.

While scouting for a javelina hunt a couple miles from the U.S. border, we came across a long, commercial-sized van, abandoned in a wash, under some cottonwood trees. All the windows were gone and tires were mostly gone. There were no seats except for driver and the front passenger. The large rear area was completely open. There were deadbolts, mounted on the outside of the rear doors. Whatever could it have been used for?

The kicker was the bumper sticker that read, "My child is a honor student at..." some school I can't remember.
