    I work at LBL. I've found some strange things doing food plots, open lands bush hogging, and working the trails. Old cars far off from any road. Moonshine jugs from years past. I found an old tricycle mowing the Trace one year. Old cisterns, home places with structures somewhat standing.

    When I was a kid, my granddad and I found a balloon some kid had turned loose from northern Illinois at LBL

    I found a balloon from a young kid in Harrisburg, Ill. years ago. Wrote him back but never heard from him.
    My kid found a balloon from a fund raising walk from St. Louis. Called them back (note said to) and they said "that has been over for a long time." Guess he was supposed to find it that day??
    He also found a message in a bottle, Cave-in-Rock area. It was tossed in N. Fork of Licking river 16 yrs prior. It took some work, but I found the girl that wrote it. Still have note and bottle.

    She no longer lives there, I think her mom does. I'd send you info, but can't figure out how to do on my phone. I'll send it later today.

    I was riding my dirtbike with my buddy back about 5 years ago and we rode up on about 8 people in black kkk style robes standing over a bloody goat that the head had been cut off of with a ring of rocks with another little ring of rocks that outlined a small fire put in the middle. that was a very traumatic experience for me to say the least.

    Wow.....you win the award for freakiest visual. I would have dropped the bike and looked like the roadrunner heading in the opposite direction!

    Didn't happen to be near the Carter-Lewis line did you? If so, that was probably me. We put on that show to keep up the devil worshiping facade (see "trespassing" thread.). Works like a charm. By the way, no goats were harmed in the course of our ceremony.

    If it wasn't you, it could have been my out of town buddies. They get together a couple of times a year for hunting and typically camp out. Good guys that are very into traditional hunting. I get what I assume is an invitation every year but have only joined them on one trip. Sadly, I'm too heavy to use the grappling hook tree climber and can't get my throwing stars to keep a tight group (advice appreciated). I'm surprised so many quickly jump to the wrong conclusion. Check the search option on this site, you may find a thread about some guys that had their dinner interrupted by a trespasser on a motorcycle.

    Most people I know don't care how a racoon dies, as long as it's one less coon to get in their barn, eat turkey eggs, and to knock over your trash.

    I once found a bag of used meth making supplies.

    I found one of these once as well. Seems like the weather balloon is not as uncommon as I thought it was when I found it.
