    Whats going on here? An OC mystery

    Hey, I found this stuff in the woods today. I was checking out a little clearing for a potential campsite and first off I noticed that there was brush cut and placed strategically to kind of block access. Then I saw a pile of freshly dug up rocks. They had no lichen or moss on them and had been rinsed clean by rain. I was looking at the rocks when I saw a bunch of orange buckets further in the woods. This spot is about 150 feet off the main trail and in one of the most remote spots around.




    It appears as though the camo tarp was over the whole pile but either blew off or was found by someone else.

    There was also this lame looking barbed wire wrapped log here. It was just lying near this stack of stuff.




    There was this nice water can.



    There were a whole lot of camo tarps, tent stakes, ropes, cables and of course those black plastic things the stuff is stacked on. Also there were at least 3 large containers of various bug killing chemicals, spectracide, camp guard, and some other stuff.









    and of course, a nice new propane tank




    Also there were some tree climbing spike things, like you'd use for a tree stand.



    And a brand new spool of barbed wire, a funnel, some baby wipes




    And a brand new container of barbed wire staples.




    So what are these guys up to. It doesn't look like they've used this stuff yet. Setting up a weed plot? Maybe just building a secret hunting camp or blind. Poaching? Whats the propane for? Why do they need all that barbed wire. Secret meth lab ? (too much breaking bad) What are the big plastic things for. I'm not sure but it looks like these are the same guys that dug up the rocks.

    I'd be most concerned about the Wet Ones


    Private land?

    Someone's setting up a dope plot I'd guess. In 4 months you should have a better chance of getting shot if you go there.

    Secret meth lab most likely.

    Yeah the wet ones scare me the most too....

    This is state land, you can access the main trail by vehicle during hunting season, I'm guessing thats when they dropped it all off. But even though its pretty far in the woods, this being Mass, its really only about a half hour walk from the nearest road.

    I think its weed too, no other reason for the barbed wire, it must be to keep deer away. But why the propane tank. It just seems weird to me.

    I also considered possible homeless squat, but it seems like a lot of cash was spent on stuff a homeless guy wouldn't find important. And the stuff has been sitting there for a month or two at least.

    Defiantly a strange find, either city workers are planning some kind of project or people up to no good with a meth lab or.....

    I doubt it's a dope grow. No fertilizers, kiddie pools or miles of poly tubing. Where i live we stumble on many cartel grows. Looks more like a drug lab, especially with the tree stand spikes. I guess that would be for a look out. Because once you start making speed you have to finish it, otherwise you have a bomb on/in your hands.

    I have heard of putting pot plants up in trees. you place them in buckets with a rope wick back to ground level. The wicking rope is tied to a small rock or block this is placed in a second bucket usually buried or healed in at ground level. this bucket is filled with water.

    I betcha its for a meth lab. I'd GTFO&SO . . . . and call the poh-leese.
