..Epic thread..

..Lots and lots of time in my life spent in many, many different woods / National forests, and flung from Canada to El Salvador, Mt Rainier, to Belgrade (ME), and all up-down the Amazing ones here in Cali, and like others, have seen the usual complement of 'historical' items, (vintage car-carcasses, 1950s Coke bottles, old Polaroid cameras, jewelry / watches, etc, etc..) but..

..Only item I can say I've found that was - truly - 'out of place' / wierd, was.. a Marble.. Had this strange dual 'greenish-pink' hue to it, something I'd never seen, even in 'dichroic glass'...

...Turns out it was Uranium-doped glass... How and Why such an item would be out in the middle of absolutely Nowhere (..in NC..), and nowhere Near any trails / camps, etc, like 10 miles up / off a River, in deep, deep woods.. as the saying goes, 'God only knows'....

..and the 'Coolest' thing I can say I've ever found.. Was a *massive* chunk of Mica, (found exploring in CO..) about 48 lbs! Looked like a gigantic chunk of Silver, it was So amazing.. Sons and I 'donated it' to a local Science Museum (..in my Boys names.. and even the curators said they'd never seen anything like it, it was really Somethin else..

...Really Great thread..

My dad found an old broad axe (for squaring up timber) hanging in a pine tree, and my cousin found a S&W revolver from the 30s in the mouth of a mine that’s been rumored to have been an outlaw hideout back in the day.

Found $60 in cash on the side of the road along the woodline in my subdivision. Lightly traveled road but enough foot and car traffic to be quickly discovered. Couldn't have been there long or someone would have found it. Laying right on the pavement at the edge of the road.

Couldn't believe my luck! Looked around for 5 minutes to see if there might be more...

ABOUT 20 years ago I was on a moose hunt in Northern Ontario.
Typical type hunt. Only about 50 miles from "civilization, but in that bush it is like being on the other side of the world.

Fly in, self guided. The outfitter had been using the camp for a few years.

I used my topo maps to find a low area off the lake we were using for a base camp. I canoed the length of the lake then cut a trail into a low area where it showed moose had been wallowing.

Nothing showed that day, the weather was actually too nice.
Next morning was rainy and I tried again. Around noon I went partially around the mountain following the terrain to what might be another spot. So, I am about 300yds or so off the lake and there with a small pine tree sticking out of it are the remains of a mens old Schwinn bicycle. It looked pretty beat up and had been there for a while. I note it on the map and continue my hunt.

Day 4 the hunt is over with and the outfitter flies in to pick us up. I mention what a weird place to find a bicycle, his head comes around and asks "What bicycle?" So I explain where I found it and he tells me in 3 years of people hunting out of that camp no one has ever mentioned seeing a bike. He had no explanation for it.

We landed and were unloading gear and he perked up and said he had an idea. Where I found the bike was on the flight path to 2 different First Nation settlements and the bike could have been tied to a plane that lost it years ago, otherwise he had no clue.

I once found the propeller of a ship in the forest near the Dellaware Water Gap. I can't imagine how it got there.

Not really weird but I have stumbled across the winch and boom of a tow truck about a mile back in the woods, A couple hundred yards from it is the hood of a 50's-ish vehicle with a two cylinder engine under it. I assume it is old logging equipment that was left there.


In roughly the same area I went out , nothing was there and when I went back the next weekend there was a cabin out there about 16x16, wood sides, wood floor on pallets, tin roof, house windows. I went back a few weeks later and it was gone. Someone put a lot of effort into getting it in there and getting it back out. There were no obvious vehicle or atv tracks so it appeared as if they carried it in and back out.

Was walking in a park one time through the woods and realized i was walking on tile (the 1 foot square flooring kind) stumbled into the remains of a slab on grade house.
Another house. Another area. Walking through woods and found a toilet still mounted to the cast iron drain pipe. About 8 foot in the air, with no other sign of a house anywhere.
A large bush decorated with about 30 pairs of panties.
Also ran across a shoreline that had been thrust up in elevation by some long past earthquake. Long line of rocks and boulders all following the same elevation.
Found a large old cedar that had all the telltale signs of being notched out and planked by precontact/early contact indians.
Not in woods, but on shoreline. Totem pole driftwood. Long log with gravel banked up behind it. Exposed wood was row of faces looking out.
Also not woods, but a ravine in the desert in eastern washington. Hiking ravine and saw wooden barrel wedged up in the rocks on a cliff face about 15 foot up. From old homestead flash flood.

A friend and I once found a family cemetery in the woods while deer hunting. Not even in a clearing--just completely overgrown by trees and brush.

Dates on the headstones were early 1900s. Every headstone had the same last name. Most were young children, one a teenager, and the inscriptions mostly mentioned sickness. It was pretty somber and kind of ruined our day...not that "our day" is important in the face of a family's loss like that.

I'm guessing we stumbled on the remains of an old homestead.

My favorite hunting spots are two old family cemeteries.

The bride and I have maintained them somewhat.

Default WTF?!?

So, wandering around today, I stumble on this. The hillside is covered with yuccas (which are not native to the area). All of the rest of them are normal except for this one. The top seems to be tied with a piece of cordage stripped from a yucca leaf. Thought this was odd for the middle of nowhere.

Did you check to see if there was a shrunken head inside?

You can't beat this for something weird from the woods, although it was found in China:

I found a tank....

OK, so it's only part of a small turret from a 1930's era British tank. (I don't know the type & believe me, I've done the research.)

This was found on what was used as an army training area during WW2.

Before anybody asks, yes I did check underneath & the rest of the tank isn't there!

This is in North Yorkshire, England.

The year, 1966. The place the Cascade mountains 90 odd miles SE of Wenatchee Wa.

The ole man was hunting and we found a P-38 crashed with the guns loaded and a skeleton in the pilots seat.

The ole man A WWII Vet took the guns, ID plate and dog tags. Marked the trail back to the car. Then drove 100 miles to the state patrol.
They all went up there for a weeks. Never did find it again. Still might be up there. The rains came in and washed everything clean.

This happened about 1980... Down right scary to us.

A group of about eight people visiting Pagan, Burma (now Myanmar).

One afternoon we were exploring and started walking north in the Irrawaddy river bed. One guy was ranging ahead of the group close to the bank when he called us over to look at something he had found.

It was a ten foot long snake skin, a King Cobra. I went close to look and touched it. It was soft, not brittle. That meant that it was fresh and the cobra could still be close by. When I mentioned that everyone quickly vacated the area. I was probably leading the bunch.
__________________________________________________ _______________________________________________

I grew up in the Missouri Ozarks. I was hunting with another guy way out in the hills (now Mark Twain National Forrest) and came on what we called a root cellar, a place where people stored the jars of things they had canned. It was mostly buried but for the top. All you could see of the top was railroad rails with the bottom embedded in concrete. They were not standard size rail like you see today, they were smaller. There were signs of a house there but not much left. The cellar had a lot of water in it and the steps were mostly rotted away. No sign of a road and this was rough terrain. Always wondered how they got that much concrete and rails back in there.
