It had to be the body since ghosts aren't real. Necro...

oh i just remembered one it is not that strange now that i look back on it but it was weird when it happened

about 12-13 years ago my family and i were up towards Pearl Pass in Colorado. not quite to the pass. we were right before the twin lakes trail head. we had just got back to the jeep and it was getting late. the sun had already set behind the mountains.

As we were packing up the jeep my dad, who was on the opposite side of the jeep, says quiet everyone there is a bull moose about 30 feet from the jeep. we are all like sure there is dad and keep packing the jeep not being any quieter.

he says no really there is a moose come look. so we walk around the jeep and sure enough there is a fully grown bull moose with about a 5' rack just standing there looking at us. we get very quiet and just watch him as he keeps walking past us on up the mountain.

when we got back to the cabin we called the forest ranger station and they told us that they were reintroducing moose back into the area. he had been spotted by some hunters the day before 3 mountain ranges over and they thought that he was following a small heard of cows since mating season was not far away.

i know that this does not sound very strange now but at the time we knew that there were no moose in Colorado and it was very strange that we saw one. we all kind of had an erry (sp?) feeling like something out of the Twilight Zone. on the ride home we were all discussing our different theories on how a moose could end up in Colorado.

oh well i guess that is not that Unusual but it is a story non the less.

Can't say if it was a ghost or not, but I gave a girl a ride and the lady at the store said it was a girl who had died, I've had others tell me the same thing along that same road. Somewhere along US1 or 121 before or after augusta, I can never remember which, It's been along time ago. I'm thinking it was on the US1 before augusta, GA.

I grew up in southern Rhode Island, alot of indian lands there, hence the casinos etc.

But I remember several large rock ridges with really tiny rocks arranged in patterns on top of them, like really intricate circles of all different sizes.

Also came across a grove of mini rock statues, 3 tiny rocks forming a triangle, with two rocks stacked vertically on top of them. Saw hundreds of these things in this tiny *** dirt grove.

That same day, found a huge *** tree, with a **** ton of twigs and small logs all tied together hanging down from the branches, weird shapes all strung from the branches going around the tree.

I promtly headed back after that.

German bunker

Not really Unusual for this area but this is out on the Grafenwhoer Training area in Germany. A WWII German bunker, one of many!

Well, this thread has been going for awhile - yet today is the first time I've noticed it.

20 years ago I came across what appeared to be thousands of dollars spread down a hillside near a ghost town in our coal region. I was with my wife in a YJ. Fortunately, my wife did not see the money. I had a bad feeling about it and got us out of there fast.

Sometimes I wonder about all the possibilities...

Speaking of bad feelings...


A while ago some friends and I stumbled across an old cold war era missile base (long abandoned). The structures were still present, and looked (for the most part) undisturbed. However there were fresh hand dug ditches extending from a few of them. They were ~3 feet deep, and extended for 50 or so feet in random directions from these buildings. And by fresh, I mean within a day or two. We followed these things by foot for a little while until we came across an area of waist high grass that was very recently matted down by a truck. The tracks led to a building covered by decades of overgrowth. The way the tracks appeared, it looked as if a truck very recently drove up to and inside the building (there were no tracks leading away from the building). We walked a little closer to the building, and at about the same time we looked at each other and both decided to get the hell out of there.


We figured it was either copper thieves going after the underground cables, a meth lab, or both. We didnt want to stay to find out. Havent seen that place since.

Understood. Many possibilities... If I were armed and had a radio - I might have reacted differently.

That area had a lot of drug activity at the time. The local Law Enforcement was corrupt and could not be trusted (the sheriff was later removed from office with criminal charges).

I was more worried about my wife's safety than anything else. I never did tell her about it as I feared she'd tell friends or family and they'd go looking for the money and get into something bad.

Driving on a dusty road in the Mojave desert in California, about a half hour north of Barstow, I drove into some kind of community out in the boonies. Maybe 4 to 6 40' pre-fab homes, flying California flags (no US flag). As I drove the road that circled the open compound some dude came out of a trailer with a 12 gauge shotgun in hand, following my movements... I just drove off and found another way back to where I came from. This place was a good 30 or 40 miles from the nearest road. Those people were definitely hiding from something... Weird...

I ALWAYS carry when I go off-road or up into the mountains around here. But that said I honestly don't know what I would have done but as you said in your prior post something wasn't right. Better to err on the side of caution, armed or otherwise, and live to tell about it.

Something funny, One time A couple guys and I were walking along a railroad track out in the middle of no where, and I went down to the toe of the fill of the rail bed into a drainage by the concrete box culvert to check the date on it to see what year it was built (the dates are stamped in the concrete). Upon inspection I noticed it was built in the 1920's. I was turning to head back to the top when I saw an old thermos. It was an old metal one from the late 70's or early 80's that was the type that came with a lunch box. I took it back up to the top of the rail bed to show it to the guys with me. Upon closer inspection we saw that the metal had been rusted through but the plastic was still intact. I screwed off the plastic mug from the top and then the plastic cap to see what was inside. I was hot chocolate, and still looked and smelled like it was just made!! It was however not hot anymore. And NO I didn't taste it. I am sure it had to have been there for several years to rust through like that. I am still suprised whan I think back on that how fresh it looked and smelled....
