June 6, 2005New here. Been reading here and over at CTW mostly, but have been looking at Dodge and Ford. Thought I would bump this thread up to the top. I don't post much on the tenmagazines sites yet, just been reading and doing my homework lol. Great stories, hope there is more to come. The weirdest thing I found off road would be a 15' boat. Pretty far in. Need 4x4 to get out there. It was on a trailer too. Probably worth something actually.

June 14, 2005About a month ago me and some of my jarhead friends decided to go to the top of this real technical trail near oahu's north shore. This trail is made for jeeps and little toyotas and the locals always go up here but we never could make it to the top cause they always cut down trees to block the trail off. So one of my friends gets an idea to bring along a chainsaw and some axes and clear out the roadblock so we could go on up. So the trail gets clear and we go to the top where theres a good mudhole and what not there. Well we play in this mudhole then its time to go since we've been up there for a couple hours. Well we see a few local guys driving up this little windy dirt road up the mountain and decided to drive down it cause I've heard it leads to the paved road. So the group splits up and some of us decide to go back down the trail and some of us try to get out by the dirt road. So were tooling along this road and on the right side there's a fence that said KEEP OUT US Government Property Impact Area. We were just driving through this area, so that was kinda scary. Anyhow, we continued up the road then we passed some kind of field with crops growing and people farming it. Well I could tell that they didn't want us bein there when we saw what they were growin'. There was a nice weed crop growin there so we decided to get the heck outta there asap. Well my spotter wasn't paying attention and I clipped a low overhanging treelimb and cracked my windshield pretty good. Then I realized that we were going the wrong way and I went to turn around and backed up this little wash. My tires were spinnin so I dropped it into 4HI and let out the clutch only to hear a loud bang and my steering wheel jerk to the side. I get out and see my axle shaft is busted at the yoke. The U joint blew up and splayed out the ears on both yokes. So I unlock my hubs, put it back in 2 wheel then start down the hill. We passed back through past the weed field and I didn't look back. We made it down to the end of the road only to find the gate welded shut. There was what looked like a crack house on the other side of the gate and a bunch of old junked cars and other trash lyin around and so we were lookin around for a way to get out of there. My spotter and one of my friends saw a side trail up an embankment that was probably 20 feet high and a 60* angle. They ran up it and didn't come back for about 15 minutes. So we're waitin' for them to come back and I'm parked in the middle of this dirt road like a sittin duck. Then some local drives up to the gate and gets out of his riceburner and looks at me long and hard. I look back at him then sit back in my truck waiting for them to come back. Well we figured we'd been spotted and it was only a matter of time before more of them come and with who knows what on their minds. So we decide to try and make it up this hill and see whats on the other side and find our buddies who could have dissapeared. There were dogs barking like crazy at the house and my truck was overheating to add to the effect. So I try to climb this hill in 2 wheel cause my 4 wheel is broken and I just spin tires. So I back up about 30 feet and hit this hill in 2nd gear as fast as I can go and ended up gettin about a foot and a half of air on my front end as I go over. Then everybody who was with me gets over the edge and we finally found our buds who were trying to find a way out. So they find a way out and we drive down this field of roof high grass to the road but there's a chain strung across 2 trees. I was gonna bust through it with my grillguard but the chain had enough slack in it to let it go over my truck completely. I pass through it then my truck stalls. So I yell to the jeep behind me to give me a push start and then it fires up and we haul ass outta there quick. On the way out we passed some kind of government vehicle that looked like a DLNR truck. I didnt hang around to find out what he wanted and we skedaddled. Needless to say I haven't been back up that trail after I heard one of my buddies talkin about locals looking to shoot anybody who drives up this trail with a full sized truck who are in the military. Now I'm out of another good place to go wheeling.
June 15, 2005USMCRedneck. Where the hell is THAT trail? Sounds like Helemano? Or Pupukea? I'll go up there.
June 23, 2005Hey man if you really wanna know that trail is right off highway 83 going north past Kaneohe right before Waikane at the chinaman's hat. But unless you know the owners of that place I dont recommend it, especially if you're in the military and drive a fullsize.

By the way, where are these trails you're talkin about and what are they all about? As soon as I get my axle shaft and radiator fixed and some other issues I'd like to find another trail to go on. Let me know.
June 23, 2005Just let me know when you're ready to roll, and I'll set something up with the rest of the crew. Is the trail you went on the one where you drive through the trees and cross the stream? If not, we have another trail to run...no worries, I was born & raised here. Just moved back from Cali a little while ago.
BTW you going to the Kaneohe Bay Fest to see Montgomery Gentry, Brad Paisley, and Skynyrd?
Sorry for the thread hi-jack.
June 23, 2005Anvil, that story about the barn is crazy, I would've done the same thing, except I'da tourched that crap after yankin it down, anything associated with that junk deserves to get destroyed in a bad way.
USMCredneck, yer story us nuts too, ya gotta wonder if the gov. knows whats going on over there.
June 24, 2005Behind my Mom's house is a military base and it we spend a lot of time of the base looking for our animals One day we were riding threewheelers on the base and guy in front got his axle wrapped up in trip wire. That scared him pretty bad. A few minutes later we found a sign blocking the road that was facing away from us. He looked at the sign looked back at us shook his head. Looked back at the sign then looked back at us went white. Then stormed down the hill and told us what the sign said. Remember the sign was facing away from us. Live Fire Zone, Keep out.
The story doesn't end there though. In our haste to get out of there he wanted the fastest route out. I chose a side road not often used, he was again in front as he passed us. Half way up the road he drove over a bunch of grenades. I don't know if they were smoke grenades or explosive but he was so freaked out we didn't stop.
Crazy as this is I was never scared. Our bikes are loud and the army tends not to shoot civilians.
July 4, 2005We went on our 3 wheelers along the river. it was a fall and most of the trees had lost there leaves. This area was suppose to be flooded when they built a lake but the lake ran out of funding and only part of it was flooded. The area is mostly swamp but sometimes it can be dry enough to get by on a 4 wheeler..Well We went about 4 miles west of the river . My buddy noticed a some huge ivy growing and we new it was structure like a barn or house under all that ivy. It looked abandonned so we walked up to it. the windows and front door intact we walked up the wheelchair ramp covered in moss.We entered around 5pm close to dusk.The house looked abosolutly clean except for dust and some scattred furniture. there was still a record player and old tube radio. Bookshelves had a few books on them I was like something is wrong people dont just up and leave there stuff here. Kitchen still paltes in the cabinets, silverware etc..A magazine was dated 1964 was found also. I was getting kinda freaked but my corious side kicked in still. We found many creepy pictures still hanging on the wall of black and white photos.The kind that stare at you no matter where you are standing.
So my buddy walks into the bedrooms and find many old clothes.Some were striped and looked like prison clothes. Well I picked it up and it saidd inmate on the front and the names one Walters and the other Dewey.
I turn on the flashlight from my keychain and see blood scattred on the walls and floor. I show my buddy and he says proably from an animal. Well its on the ceiling too! Im like no way it cant be from an animal.He walks into the bathroom and finds more blood stained in the sink and leg irons and handcuffs. At this time Im really scared and say lets go.
Needless to say I called the sheriff at the nearest gas station. We waited about 2 hours for a deputy to show up and we take him on our 3 wheelers to where we saw the house.
He came out pale and only said lets get back to my car becuase back then they did not have radios. Well about 5 other cops show up as well as the dept of prisons.
Well a few weeks later the sheriff called us to inform us that house belonged to a reclusive family whose the mother and father were both crippled in a car accident.The daughter was care taker of the parents so only the neighbors rarly saw even the daughter.. Appearntly the daughter fell in love with one of the inmates and helped them escape from a chain gang in 1964.The daughter hid a gun in the brush for her convict boyfreind in the chain gang along the country road the gang was working on. it was 30 miles from the house and a 1 miles from the prison. The Inmate shot the guard and escaped with the guy he was cuffed to. Well,
The daughter told one of the neighbors in 1964 that the family was moving for a short could not be used.No one really saw the neighbor leave with the parents though.It sat until 1981 overgrown until we found it. The dept of prisions confirmed the uniforms were authentic and the same.Well the property was 70 acres of swamp/wetland so it could not be used. The prison dept said the sizes of the uniforms issued to the inmates before the escape mathced the ones on the house. The deputy said that the amount of blood its possible that someone was killed but impossible to say. that was in 1981 no forensics files to help but i think they are looking into the house again.
The Inmate Walters was reported to be seen in wyoming in 1967 with the daughter but they were never found.
Im sure the escapee and daughter are now old and gray and could be our next door neighbors.
There was story about it on unsolved mysteries but it never showed the actual house or how it was discovered.
