yeah, you're on the right track; big boulders suck when you back into them...

it still looks the same as you saw it last ...saving up some loot for some corner gaurds. possibly going w/ the led look.


..."easy" is my middle name

If anyone here has ever been out to Armogosa sand dunes on the outskirts of Las Vegas. I was out wheeling over a small canyon between 2 mountain cracks & came up on a huge fence. It had all kinds of signs on it. One read government property do not trespass persicuters will be shot on sight. I followed the fence forever with my girlfriend on the back of my quad. Finally we came to a large opening & could see a groomed dirt road that stretched forever. We turned around to head back to the truck & mid way back ran into armed soldiers in a hummer. They said we couldn't be here & were so nice to F***ing follow us all the back to the trail we rode in on. That was a scary trip & by far the weirdest I've ever had. I think it was area 51. Not sure though.

Not much of a story, but weird electrical occurrence. Last week I dropped my brother off at his friend's graduation party and was going to wheel my way home down some two tracks, this is about 15 or a few more miles away from my home in a rural area. My friend Travis and my sister are still in the XJ and we pick a direction and find a 2-track and head off in the general direction of home. about 30-45 minutes later we still haven't seen a road, which is odd because while this is a rural area most 2-tracks don't go that far before crossing a road. So we turn down the music and pull out my GPS which is pretty much brand new to see how far from home we are. It's taking a while to acquire a satellite so we turn it off and drive a bit farther.

The road turns into a logging road that looks to have just been cut this summer, and we get out of quite so hilly an area and figure we're near some kind of large radio towers we figured were for cell phones. so we stop the Jeep and get out for some fresh air and turn on the GPS. It won't go past the power on screen and cannot be turned off. We have no cellphone signal, and when we get back in the XJ we realize the radio transmitter that reads a USB drive for mp3s that we have been listening too all this time now reads no mp3s on the drive. I should mention that so far the only animal i saw was a toad about 30 minutes ago, but since then, not so much as a sparrow. Though flies and mosquitoes were still prevalent.

With nothing else to do we start driving some more. Neither the USB drive or GPS works at any point, and we didn't check our phones. After quite a while longer with no roads and logging equipment all over, we finaly come to a road, less than 3 miles from my house.

Upon returning home GPS still won't boot, and USB drive shows no files. The next day at work as I'm on the phone with the GPS manufacturer first try it boots up fine, and continues to work while I go down a few trails on my lunch break. When plugged into my computer the USB drive showed a full compliment of of mp3 files an then played fine when plugged back into the Jeep.

This is an awesome thread..got thru page 7 and cant keep my eyes open any more tho. I think in some of the situation i would have dropped into the fetal position and bagn crying. anyway I've just seen some creepy old people wandering in the woods..and a couple old ('20's,30's,40's) cars with about a million bullet holes per square inch in them. nothin too special.
Scariest thing, not wheelin but in the woods I've encountered is out hunting one winter. Walking a little deer path and see 2 pumpkins smashed off the edge, obviously someone is baitin the deer. so i go check it out, see footprints and begin to follow them. Started hearing some ruckus, and then someone using old antlers as a call. Trying to call me in either not knowing I wasn't a deer or knowing and planning on eating me that night I decided to head back to the truck after that since I'm a wimp.

Awesome thread. I follow up often and read the newer responses. I must say this though, I'm very surprised that I haven't read a single UFO story. I find it hard to believe that no one has one.

Well, your luck has just changed Mino! I was out camping with my brother and cousin one night out in the woods after doing some trail riding. This is on my uncles property at the base of Capital Forest in Washington. Anyways, after the sun goes down we put up our tents and start the fire. It's about 9:30 PM by the time we get everything together and sit down and have the fire chat. An hour later, we look up on the horizon and see a green glowing light... Not like an aircraft, trust me, I know the difference... In the Air Force for 6 years. But it is WAY off in the distance... A few seconds later it bursts into a fireball! The fireball itself was also green with a bit of blue/white in the middle of the flames... Then we hear a loud whistle like a bottle rocket only MUCH louder... The altitude must have been 5,000 ft or so and was still fairly loud. The fireball goes streaking across the sky, about a mile or so to the south of where we were camping and the fireball went out... A few seconds later we saw a flash in the sky and then the very faint sound of what may have been a crash... We all though it was a meteor and would look for it in the morning since it was pitch black and we weren't TOO familiar with this area...

We end up going to bed around 12:30 - 1:00 in the morning. At 2:30, my cousin was woken up by some snapping twigs about 150-100 feet away and they sounded like they were getting closer... It became obvious that they were foot steps, however this was private property and seriously out in the middle of no where. At least 5 miles from any sort of house/business... So what were the footsteps? Cousin gets out of the tent and goes to investigate. The twig snapping stopped immediately. 5 minutes go by with nothing. Cousin goes back to the tent. The snapping starts again and this time it was VERY close. Within 50 feet. We are bound to see something now... This time we all get out and the twig snappage stops AGAIN! This time we let 30 minutes go by... Go back to bed and then more sounds outside... Whatever, going back to sleep...

We all finally wake up around 8:00 the next morning and step outside... We saw some obvious signs of something being there like disrupted dew on the grass and some freshly kicked around dirt... It came to our campsite and made two or so circles around the fire and went back off in the same direction where the footprints came which so happened to be the direction of the crash the night before... A few of the footprints had a red slime in them and this stuff stunk like butthole! It looked almost like blood but thick and slimey and a bit more orange...

We pack up camp and decide to go for a hike towards the crash site and see if we could find anything and possibly follow the tracks back to where they came from... We ended up losing the tracks due to the changing landscape and all... But we decided to just travel a straight line towards the crash area... About 45 minutes into our hike we noticed some tree branches way up, that were broken and some had fallen and one downed tree. That must be where we want... Go run over to it and there was brush and whatnot laid flat and some char marks on some of the trees... There was no meteor though?

It definitely looked as though something was there though! There was about a 15 foot circular area where the grass was just flat and the bushes were also broken... We found another small area that had the red slime stuff... At this point we decided to go hit the road again and head home.

It was a freaky experience and I am unsure of what it could have been... My cousin thinks it was a UFO and I think it was a meteor still... I also think it was deer by our campsite the night before... Cousin thinks it was an alien...

I still don't believe in aliens/UFO's but my cousin is VERY convinced.

I don't think it was an alien because my *** didn't hurt the next morning... Hahaha... But really... Just one of the strange experiences where a series of events makes you think what it could have been, but you know it really wasn't... The only thing I am still confused at is the slime stuff...

My cousin is all the weapon I needed! LOL! Really, we are all fairly big (not fat) even when I was 13... They were 19 and 20. Both were football players, but my cousin played for the Huskies and broke a few of their records... Not to mention, he can knock a lot of people out with just one punch... Again, I wasn't scared as long as he was there! LOL! But my brother did keep a gun with him...
