And a new hood, and fenders, and lights, and frame, etc. Cows are not something you want to be hitting with any speed. A deer weighs what, 100-180 lbs? Our cows vary from 1200-1900lbs. If a deer can total a car, imagine what a cow could do!!

Ah, cows. A thousand roast beef sandwiches wrapped in a gorgeous leather coat.

It was a calf. Couldnt have been more than 400-500 lbs. That thing sure jumped when I came up on it though. It had to have been 5 feet in the air, lol.

Your trespassing is probably why the landowner was forced to gate it.

Once found a 500 lbs training bomb on private property next to a military installation. They really should be more careful with those things, they could wind up in a rednecks garage.

hey fellow jeepers
well here in KY we got a big ice storm, with some snow and so i couldnt pass up the opportunity to drive around in it
i was out in the middle of the woods and stumble upon 3 things:

1 is this thing, have no idea what it is


second was i guess a tree house


and third must have had some magnetic properties, and our eyes must have some sort of metal in them, because i found i couldnt look away


the funny thing is the whole day i didnt see a fellow jeeper on the streets

Where are you in KY? That doesn't look too bad there. I live in Hopkinsville and I went by my house on my lunch break.....I think I may just abandon it! There's trees all down on my yard and on my roof. There's power lines, phone lines, and cable tv lines all laying in my yard.....I'm screwed! Good thing I've got a generator.....I guess I'll spend the next several days with one little heater and a light bulb......and no internet. On a good note....at least the beer will stay cold.

Some of my friends and I found an old cemetery with the newest tombstone dating to the early 1900's most of them were from the late 1800's and alot were unreadable, then just a little further down the trail were a few foundations of where there was some homes or even a small village at one time.

id actually like to go back there and take some pictures this time,its been over 20 years since i was there last.

another time at a different location on a friday we were gonna explore a popular offroad spot but being it was a new spot and getting dark we decided to wait till the next day. so after getting there we found the entrance trail was blocked with a burnt chevy berretta that was still smoking from being stolen the night before.
