I'm really surprised at how many hidden campsites I've stumbled upon around here. It seems like almost every patch of trees in this city conceals a campsite or hidden dwelling of some sort. I know of several I've visited multiple times. Odd thing is, I've almost never caught anyone home, even though it's obvious someone is still living in/visiting most of these places. I may post some pictures later if anyone is interested. Has anyone else found any of these sites around town? If so, where?

Hmmm.... didn't notice anything behind the trailer, but someone has evidently been visiting/living in the trailer itself. I went there recently, and went in the trailer. Very interesting scene. Stuff left over from the 80s. The bathroom and bedroom in the back both had their doors closed. I had no idea what I was going to find when I went to open them. No one was there as it turned out, but there was plenty of evidence someone has been recently frequenting the place. I need to go back, as I never made it back to the big barn on the other end of the property. How many times have you been there? Ever ran into anyone?

Ever ran into anyone?[/quote ] never ran into anybody but thought somebody had just been there, there was a bike with bags and such attached to it and a make shift tent under the big oak tree back where the spring is. The property used to have a bunch more stuff on it until the owner or somebody collected the stuff. Back in the barn there used to be a old car, tractor, other farm equipment etc. But yeah the trailer is weird. It's like the lady died(Phoebe Ward) and nobody came to get her things? Pots and pans, old food, clothes, mail, anything really

Yeah and it would appear she died a long time ago... in the early 80s in fact, judging by the dates I found on her last bills. Weird. Very weird.

And shit's still sitting there?

I've seen the trailer but never got near it.
Oddly enough, everytime I've ever wanted to poke around something's happened and I've had to leave.

That's weird though, you'd think she'd have some family or friends somewhere...that's depressing.

Just curious, and I assume it's not, but Is this place still around?
