The sign isn't the spooky part. The spooky part is that the government will allow recreational activities in areas they feel the need to post up one of these signs just to cover their ass and say you were warned. Then the spookier part is people just going on in and having fun anyway like nothing will blow up. Good luck with that. I find there are many ordinance free areas to have my fun Then the suck part is that the government fucks up cool natural areas conducive to recreation in this manner. Shouldn't they be made to pick up all their toys when done as we were instructed to as children?

Who gives a shit what the reason is-You should know enuf to stay on roads and trails. I managed to range over a good 1/2 the 265,000 or so acres of Eglin that is open to the public...with signs like this all over the place...and I did not get blowed up-cause I stayed on the roads/trails.

If they only posted "Stay on roads and trails" would it change anything?? Nope.

Additionally-My guess is you are on the military reservation at that point...which is required by law to be allowed to some degree. If you don't like how they use they land....Stay off of it.

Actually I think it was a training area during WW2 & later relinquished to BLM & USDF ( Cleveland National Forest ) the thing that was odd , was the location posted, I'd think it would've been at the trailhead warning that you're entering this type of area, seems to me thats where you'd expect it, not halfway down a trail you've been driving on, people do like to get out once in awhile. Military ordinants aren't new in San Diego, shit we just had a meet at Superstition which borders an active naval bombing range, which is fenced & posted in most spots & I sure as hell wouldn't venture far past it just to see if their lying or not.. just common sense I reckon....

That location is actually where a military helicopter carrying large amounts of ammunition crashed two or three years ago and they finally opened the trail head back up at the end of last year. Not a military reservation at all, but close to a indian reservation!

I had a job where we had to hammer flags into the ground where we thought there were unexploded munitions. It was an old Winchester Arms factory where they tested motar shells for the first and second World War. Interesting job! Didn't get blown up. Only found 2 or 3 actual munitions.

So slightly different In this case- That sign is a CYA because of litigation happy America.
If the crash was that recent- There is very little chance that anything explosive is still there cause post crash investigations are very through. If there is some scrap of metal or something left behind- Hopefully people won't play with it.

I wouldn't go on trails like that there anyway and be runnin thru everyone's doody and stuff since they stayed on the trail to not get all blowed up. No need to go all hyper serious, we all know what the signs mean & I post lots of shit in jest, it's the internet, have fun widdit. Al Gore would have it no other way would he?
