March 4, 2004Scariest thing i ran across driving a 4wheeler was a 12=foot alligator! I was taking a shortcut across some unused property, and there he was, laying in a mud puddle. He didn't get me, but I had to change my clothes!!!!
Ther'es a private ranch on the Colorado River that I offroad on alot, and one day we found this place that looked like a ghost town. It had a few small structures, an old steam boiler and like a big pump by the river. It's kinda spooky, all growed up in brush and all. Then I saw a story in the local paper about a month ago about this town that was built there around the 1830's, called Portland, TX. They were going to dig a canal by hand to the next river about 15 miles away. They dug about 2 miles and gave up, just left everything there!
There's also a few old family cemeteries around there that I avoid even in the daytime.
Reading all of these posts at 3AM gave me the willies!!!
