We found a circle made with those little stone lambs that sit on top of those old little kid tomb stones.

Everyone said there some old .50cal machineguns rusting in the woods near our house. My dad took us up there to see them. Turns out my dad said they were really these hose things that are used for strip mining or for removing dirt. Hes from West virginia and seen a lot of mining gear, he kept on saying stupid New Yorkers and laughing.

A store maniquin's legs with pants and sneakers on them sticking out of the mud like it dived into the mud puddle.

A really old row boat.

A chainsaw sticking out a tree.

A store maniquin tied to a tree and set on fire.

An Elk lodge's bronze elk set up next to stream like it was taking a sip. That made local news when I was 12.

I severed deer's head in a stolen school's water fountain. High School prank that got some kids expelled a couple years of psychological monitoring.

A drunk guy taking a poop in the woods. We were 10 and laughing out butts off when we were throwing rocks at him. Poor guy.

The strangest thing we found was a little hut made with stolen road signs. You know stop, yield, stay left/right, and work ahead.

He puked for some reason he did not expect that. It went on for nearly four years with local state and federal search teams never finding the bodies until they wired the wolves with GPS trackers. Then when the wolves came back with human bones they brought up where they had been than followed that. In true horror movie fashion my friend trips at one point and finds himself face to face with a human skull.
I thought how interesting it was that the wolves never chewed on the human bones only one skull had teeth marks but we guess those came from him carrying it rather than his gnawing on it.
Probably from a suicide. Here in western New York a quarry had several severed arms, legs, and lands. Turned out someone dumped medical waste. Locals thought it was a serial killer dismemberings bodies, they seemed disapaointed it that it wasn't a killer.

It is possible that is could be and old oil, natural gas, or water pump! Im not sure but that is my guess. I have found an old cemetery that had been neglected since the early to mid 1900's. Ive found old cars, foundations, houses, out buildings and random jars and bottles.

Google earth it to see how small it is. look for the bridge, and go diagonally back in the brush to a small clearing, they were there. There is an old water tank you can see just west of the small waterfall. Go from that, across the path and into the brush, that is where I found the naked girl.

I also found a dead deer with an arrow in its side with a leg badly butchered like someone did not know how to properly feild dress it but wanted to hunt anyway. This was also in the same little woods I saw the two fat people. I have found stolen cars in there. There was a dead body found buried in there supposedly by the mob too. I walked right past it for many years growing up and never knew it was there. Then one year after a lot of heavy rain and flooding, it surfaced and some guy walking his dog found it. Me and some friends had a little shelter not 50 feet form there when we were kids too. The body had been there the whole time.
HEY! I know what you are talking about! I live near addison & Harlem and EP isn't far from here! What you are talking about is now known as "The Jumps". Teenagers got there to make out, and built several ramps for skateboarding & atving (How they get them in there I dont know) and every so often, the park police come and destroy them, and the kids just rebuild them. Just thought I should let you know.

About 6 years back, my family bought property in Central Wisconsin. So far, we have found: foundations for a old house, 3 25 ft. long telephone poles, many deer skeletons, trash piles from the previous owned, a rotting lumber, PVC pipes, a old Ford truck in pieces all over the property, tires, and barbed wire attached to what appear to be blades for some big mowers?

My parents have an old cemetary from the 1800's with grave stones on their property. When I was younger we lived out in the country and had an old railroad bed on our land. We used to find old milk bottles, oil lamps, railroad spikes and even an old ring made from copper. I used to dig up arrowheads and indian beads too. I'm sure there is more stuff, but I don't remember. When I was a kid it was like finding treasure though. I couldn't stay out of the woods. I used to get home from school, grab my 10/22, my dog and head out the door.

I remembered some more stuff.

On my parent's property towards the back there is a very large oak tree that has grown around an old tin wash basin.

We dug around that tree and found dozens of old bricks and nails. After doing some research found out there was an old home there in the early 1900s. I am guessing the bricks were from a collapsed chimney. We made a fire pit from them.

I've also come across an old burned out car from the 50's or 60's (too young and ignorant to identify).

I found a commemorative coin about Lincoln when digging a fence post hole.

I have found old bottles I think one was 7up or something buried under a tree. Found an old plow blade as well, well rusted.

My wife and I spend one or two weekends a month hiking here in the desert where we live, just kind of exploring and getting to know the lay of the land. We have run across indian petrogliphs (really cool!) and last weekend we came across a couch, TV on a stand and an old end table, just sitting there like it was in someone's living room. It must of been someone's idea of a joke. My wife took pictures of me on this couch like I was watching TV with my old dog "Mooch the Pooch" sitting at my feet, just like at home.

The creepiest thing we found was at our regular off road parking spot several miles off the highway. We drive there a couple of times each month and park and then hike. Apparently we're not the only ones who like the spot. A couple of weeks ago we went to our spot, and the rocks were covered with what I can only assume was some type of occultic symbols. One big rock was covered with wax where two large candles had burned for what must have been hours. There was also an area against this large boulder where there had been a large bonfire. The soot was about 6 feet across and about 12 feet high. It was around this area where the symbols all were. The crazy thing was that whoever had the fire tried to remove all evidence of it. Had we not been to this area on a regular basis we never would have known, but since we know the area, the soot on the rock was a dead give away. The sand was clean white sand with no evidence of a fire, but when I looked around in the brush I found pieces of charcol that had been scattered in the cleaning process. One side note, my dog Mooch is a pit bull, hound mix and is a first class dog. He really is afraid of nothing unless it's the occassional mountain lion that roams the area. When I went to the soot blackened rock to photograph the symbols, I called him, but he woundn't come. Instead he whined, took a step toward me and went back to my wife. A second call produced the same results. Finally, I used a stern voice and he timidly came and sat at my feet, scared to death (so unlike him). I pet him and told him "It's okay." I then told him he could go. He ran from there like his tail was on fire. The next day in church I told my pastor what we had found. He said that the general area has been used for years for occultic ceremonies and animal sacrifices. Needless to say, we won't be going back there again.

Could you post a photo of the symbols? Sounds interesting.

There is an area south of Fort Worth, near Lake Whitney that is a WMA (Wildlife Management Area). A buddy of mine went Geocaching there and found several stone and concrete buildings, silos, and root cellars all in the middle of the place. We even found the remains of a huge stone bridge. I have no idea how long they have been there.

Actually turned out to be some executions over a period of years. My friends discovered that their quiet rural area was well known for meth labs and satanic covens. Woodenville north of Seattle not really very rural anymore

The weirdest thing I found in the woods was a pickup bed with a larch tree growing out of the center of it. I'm guessing that it probably got there not too long after the 1910 fire (maybe in the 40s or early 50s judging by the bed) because the trees around there were pretty big and growing too close together for someone to drive in and drag that thing through the woods.

I came across an old I assume pet cemetery with hand carved headstones all under a big apple tree. There was evidence of an old house or something but nothing more than a foundation.

This isnt a secret by any means, but in Death Valley high in a mountain there is a beautiful mansion. The guy drug all of the materials into death valley by horse to build this house in the late 1800's or something. Its kind of crazy to see a mansion in one of the most desolate places on earth. You can take a tour of it, i really reccomend seeing it if your go by there.

Well Theirs nothing remarkable around where I live, I've found old antennae up top of the hill near where i live, with cables leading to an old box. its actually kinda curious to look at. Probably an old TV receiver. On the oppisite side of the valley i did find this though.



Once while fishing on Lewis and Clark reservoir i found this imprinted on a rock.
