yeah, i guess you're right...it just depends on which way you are coming.

...i remember the freeway being probably no more than 200 yards away or so.

found

I found a methlab with full containers of active ingredients. Reported it to the proper authorities but they could not find itas it was very remote (it's a jeep thing). I went back the next day with my AR15. When I shot the first propane tank, it rolled over and shot the pressurized contents straight up in the air at least 35 feet for 30-40 seconds. Next, I put 15 rounds into the pile of camp fuel and another propane tanks. I would love to have seen the look on the "chemists" face when he found it.

I would have offered to escort the authorities there instead of creating a potential fire and explosion hazard.

I was out in a place called Stockton Beach in Newcastle in my dad's Toyota Hilux, out on the sand dunes and we came across about an acre of bones, like of all different types, I Found like massive teeth from horses, and cow skulls, and sheep spines etc, it was really creepy, it was like a huge horde of just bones and bones and stuff.. I've never seen like so many bones in my entire life, especially in the middle of nowhere.

Well I can't consider this a Jeep story but it is a Wheeling story.

Whiled stationed at Fort Irwin in the California Desert I spent about 50% of my time there living in the desert during training exercises.

During a training excercise we had some downtime, my platoon Sergeant had decided we were going to put on NVG's and do some night time land nav.

He gave us a 10 Digit Grid and said the last team there had KP duties that week.

So after getting oriented and ready to we hauled *** this was all on foot, NVG's while walking is a challenge let alone running, you have no depth perception so a a big hole might look like a small puddle.

Upon arriving at our destination we found an old airplane, it was wrecked and totally useless but we made good use of it. Ost of the platoon were all scratched up and blleding from either falling and busting their *** or scratching themselves on bush and other crap.

Looking back on this now is just soo damn funny, imagine 12 Soldiers Wearing NVG's using an old airplane as a teeter totter 6 on each wing. We were launching eachother of the wings. I guess it's not really unusal but very entertaining.

For about 5 hours prior to all of this happening my platoon Sergeant wanted all of us to be comfortable with the HMMWV (highly mobile multi purpose wheeled vehicle) and what it is capable of doing.

We spent a good part of the day just driving the hell out of our HMMWV's through the desert terrain and seeing what we could put them through. This is probably one thing I will never forget about the Army after I finish. Some of the most simple training could be the most valuable.

amazing thread.

I found a uhaul truck abandoned in the woods. Brand new GMC sierra. It was up on the pumpkins in some deep ruts and run straight into a small tree. It was all locked up and I didn't want to mess with it though. Good laugh!

Also found an abandoned f150 in the same area. Some guys got it stuck and just ditched it it's been there for months. makes me wonder where they got it haha

I found this

Just as we entered our normal spot, 2 guys asked if we had any chain, so we knew something was up.

Turns out the hole the guy is in is actually frozen up, or was. The ice is about 8in thick, and he broke through in the middle, getting completely high centered. The front facia was smashed from the ice, the tail pipe was crammed into the rear bumper, the insane amount of mud inside. It was stuck enough the drivers door wouldnt open so he had to climb through the window.

Hard to tell but its a trooper with no lift and 31" swampers. We yanked for a good hour with a cherokee with lockers and made no progress, made a phone call and had a block and tackle do the job.

Well, this wasnting wheeling, but it was hunting. We just got done with a day of squirrel hunting (apparantly the squirrels knew we were coming, cause we saw none) and getting ready to leave, I went to take a pee before we got back in the truck. Well, on the way back to the truck, I see somethng shiney on the ground. Pick it up, expecting it to just be a key ring, and look at it. Its a gold ring with 3 diamonds in it, and the inside is marked "14K FR". We knew the road we were on used to be an old logging road, so we figured a logger dropped it and never found it.
