    Strange things while wheeling

    Read on another fourm I lurk on asking what is the strangest thing you have ever found wheeling?

    I found a Flak Jacket and radio equipment on Ft Chaffee once.
    Called Range control and they came and picked them up.

    I wasn't in my jeep (only had it since Friday night) but I was duck hunting and my dog brought back a human leg....or at least what was left of it.


    *I called state police non-emergency and it took the county cops about 4 hours to get there because I was on a river where apparently neither marion or polk county wanted to deal with it so they argued who had to go get it.

    A ford fiesta trying to take the same rocky trails i was. They backed out and left. I laughed when I saw them up on top of this hill just spinning both front tires trying to keep going without any luck. Thats about it.

    nothing strange. I've found beer cans, trail signs torn up with bullet holes, animal tracks that probably shouldn't have been there( but they're animals do who knows), and the occasional plastic bumper somebody loat

    Not unusual (unfortunately) tweaker LPG tanks with green valves (don't touch them if you find any! Highly explosive!)
    '87 Comanche 4x4 lifted 5 1/2" on 33" tires 4.0L/AW4/NP242 $3500
    Perfect combination but too small to haul my Grand Kids and wife in.

    Have come across a couple of camel skeletons and bits and pieces of bumpers from some fancy SUV's in the desert here
    I never get lost. I investigate alternative destinations.

    Ran across a patch of weed in the woods.... Amazing what the weeks of a jeep can do to that stuff. Also found a 24 foot boat that somebody stole, teared up what they needed and left it in the woods. 3 days later, the police showed up.... When seconds count, the police is only minutes away LOL

    A school bus that had been converted into a home way back in the woods. I've got no idea how you'd get a bus miles back into the woods.
