I found one of their old spots where I live. It was a building with white supremacist graffiti all over it. I go online and find out that was a popular meting spot for them in the 60's/ 70's.

Bald Mountain Jeep trail. You can get to the trail from Skyline Drive. Do it quick, last time I went the trail was closed. I suspect it's open fro the hunters, then it'll be closed down again for rec use. I should have marked the location on my GPS so I had the coordinates, but I didn't have it on that day.

I got one. Wasn't in a jeep though. There is a beach here near houston. You go to Galveston, ride the ferry to boliver, drive down till you hit 124 only u dont turn right on 124. Keep on going on 87 only it's not really a road anymore. A prior storm washed that road out. Anyway, it's a pretty cool little beach..stretches out to Louisiana almost. Well, it was my first time down there riding with some buddies...just riding along minding our own business when aw f*** a dude in a speedo! then...Awww shii** a dude in NO speedo...butt naked. Dammmmit... son of a ***We ride farther down the beach and find many more......sights. Turns out, since that beach is so secluded, the nudist community seems to have made it their own home. ever seen a naked 70 yr old woman? 4 words for ya (pudding in a bag) To bad there is lotsa weirdos over there, its excellent fishing. no pun intended. Oh yeah, its' since been renamed Brokeback Beach.......yall want pics?

I think I've heard of the mine, I think it a couple hours north of Albany, but I'm not sure. where is that, and what does it mean to "bar down"?

Wow just read all 59 pages, now my brain hurts!!
I recognized the pics of the blue lake near East Liverpool, its like 20 minutes from my house. I've come across a ton of old house foundations on my mountain bike adventures, old pump stations with everything still in them, and two military training bunkers from back in the day. There is a ton of cool stuff along the Ohio river such as old barges, and an old brick factory that is full of barrels and crates, it even has a jail cell looking thing in it. Also up by my buddies camp in Bradford PA there are a bunch of old oil derricks that you can find along the trails. The Pittsburgh area has tons of cool crap if you do research.

Barring down, scaling or sounding is when you take a long pry bar and use it to check the back and ribs (ceiling and walls) for loose rocks by slamming the chisel end into the rock as hard as you can. Really loose rocks will fall free as you do this. As you do it, you also listen for hollow sounds under larger rocks or within "solid" areas. If you hear something that looks solid, but sounds hollow, you pound the crap out of it until it falls. If it doesn't fall, you keep an eye on it through out the day and retest it every time you enter the drift. Roof collapse kills more miners per year than anything else.

It's without argument the most dangerous activity that a mine worker does on a daily basis. However, the only thing more dangerous than scaling is to enter a drift without scaling.

This is cheesy as all hell, because it's a government produced educational video, but everyone who works in a mine is shown it as their intro to scaling.

wow...i just read all 59 pages over 3 days. These are some great stories. I have one but it cannot compete with most of these. when i was 16 and buddy came with me wheeling out in the woods on some pretty easy trails in northern MI. Well it was about 1 A.M. and we came over a hill to find a guy in camo with a gun (diddnt stick around long enough to see what kind of gun) standing in the middle of the trail. I immediately put it in reverse and took off. We were 16 which is probably why this scared the **** out of us.

Ive come across a few hunters carrying in MI while riding my bike on trails when I was younger. It is enough to turn around and and see how fast an 18 speed can go, lol.

Probably something innocuous like that. The gloves don't mean anything. I always carry a box of blue nitrile gloves in my Tuffy tool box in the back of the jeep. If you have to change a tire or something, it's always nice to just pull the gloves off and your hands are perfectly clean.

I carry mine in the same bag as my barrier mask and gauze and tape.
