    All in ONE trip. Very eery wheeling, especially because half the time I was by myself.

    This sign...and it was everywhere along an unestablished trail (desert wash). No fence, no direction to stay away from. So I was extremely hesitant about driving in that area.

    These HUGE Toyo tires in the middle of nowhere. There were many piles of them half buried.

    This abandoned school in Eagle Mountain ghost town. Also a very creepy place, it's like everybody just got up and left at once 30 years ago.

    There was a mine up there...closed in the 80's apparently ? No reason for anyone living there to stay after that.

    A cluster bomb would have shredded that truck.

    Crom, did you take a closer look at the truck? Anybody shooting back from the truck (brass casings, etc), or just something for target practice? Any plates on it?

    I've found a few cars out in the desert too.

    This one got me wondering how the F they got it out there. I mean it was ten miles of wooped out two track to get there, and several gnarly wash outs.

    [​IMG]

    This one had plates that read "go bubba". Nobody nearby and the footprints in the mud were dry and hardened. Might have been there for months.

    stolen most likely, everytime i come up on something like that i usually take down the gps cords and let the local cops know. most of the time they look it up and see that its stolen.

    That looks like it could have indeed been a cartel hit. Makes you wonder why someone would use such a nice truck for target practice.

    I may have taken that brush guard.

    Me and some buddies ran up on an abandoned Yukon. All the windows had been broken out and the wheels/tires were missing. Everything else seemed to be sort-of intact.

    It was pretty far in the middle of nowhere in the mountains. It looked like it probably broke down and they left it there since no wrecker could possibly get back there. We rolled it off down the side of a hill.

    About six miles down a logging trail on the way to our campsite in West Virginia, we found a homeless hillbilly trying to "fix" (hotwire) an early '80s Ford pickup that he recently "bought" (yes, we stopped to help him). The pickup had Indiana tags and the bed was completely full of empty beer cans. He told us that he worked for a guy who lived off the main road, about 25 mins away, and drove down there to sleep in a small cave. We ended up lending him a screw driver to "fix" it and get the hell out because he was parked uncomfortably close to our campsite. Never saw him again and never found his cave.
