If it was an unopened case, might be worth a lot of money.

I'll bet you are right. They sell some crazy stuff on ebay. I would have taken it with me.

Some time around 2004 i was riding (not in a jeep) around backgrouds in athens ohio and i came across this just sticking out of the ground... No idea what it is. Seems to have some generators, and measuring devices...

So i found better angles and took advantage of the low light and made this out of it...


I still cant find that place again.

^_^ how thoughtful of you.

This thread is really slowing down unfortunately. The best thing I can remember right now was there a picnic table by this lake with nothing around for quite some distance, and there was a really creepy doll on the table that had a lot of it's hair ripped out just laying there.

I should really get heavy into wheeling again so I can have a chance at a half decent story.

So last summer I was visiting my parents ranch in central Montana and I borrowed their new Rubicon to go exploring the ranch. I think the place is around two hundred thousand acres. So anyway, my wife and I were riding around when we started to see what sort of looked like an old pioneer wagon from off in the distance. This was hours away from anything. When we got closer we realized it had rubber tires... Very strange. I mentioned it to someone and they said they had seen it before and heard it was an old gypsy wagon. What do you guys think? There was another even older wagon on the ranch but I couldn't get close enough to get a picture. There was also a ton of old cabins from homesteaders. Some of them were fallen through but some were still upright and were really neat looking.

That's a sheep herders trailer. You still see a lot of them being used where sheep are being grazed...

Nothing as crazy as you guys but about 20 yrs ago (highschool) my buddy and I were wheelin at night ('79 Chevy 4x4). We were out in the woods where we had been a dozen times and saw a big fire in the distance. Figured it was a party so kept going. We got right up on it (could see people but not really clear). We turned our lights in their direction and four guys stepped out of the bushes/trees in front of us. Each had a shotgun in their hands. One walked up closer and just said "Get the **** out of here!" Needless to say we didn't need to be told twice. Scared the **** out of a couple of kids...We were told later by my buddy's uncle that it was probably a KKK meeting...but still not 100%.
