(sorry i hit send on my phone prematurely)

- on it. The stone stood about a foot out of the ground and I couldn't move it. After I aged and gained knowledge, the only way I could describe the writings, is that they seemed similar to viking runes only slightly different. My grandparents have sense passed so I can no longer go back there without permission. I'd love to find that stone again...

Wow, that's cool. Closest thing to that I've ever seen is when I was hiking near Prescott, AZ. There are a number of hiking trails where you can find all sorts of petroglyphs from thousands of years ago. All sorts of funky symbols that no one really knows what they means. I recall looking at many of them and just wishing I could know what the person who made the symbols was trying to communicate across the vastness of time.

....but finding one like you did, well that just way cool.

Thanks Kenin! It was very strange. I still remember where I went to find it. I'd love to be able to go back and find it. It was not in an area where some random kids would pull a prank either. There could be some sort of historical value to it. Saratoga does have a lot of native american background...

Oh that reminds me, I was watching this archaeological documentary back in the nineties and they'd found this old shrine that everyone had log forgotten about. Anyway, they found this elaborate secondary shrine that had all sorts of old writing on it. No one could figure out what it said or what it was so they put a huge amount of efforts in trying to figure out what language and what dialect and when they figured it all out they sent for a top guy in that language to come. He arrives they show it to him, he let's out this big laugh. The Translation? "Chin was here".

I had to laugh.

Haha wouldn't it be funny if the stone said somethig similar? "Train is gone. Eat at Joes". ;)

Oh, this reminded me of something. About twenty years ago I and few friends were at the end of a hike (the sun was setting) in Eastern Oregon. As we got around a hill, we all thought we saw a domed building at the top of a hill silhouetted against the sky. It was perfectly round at the top. It didn't make sense but we all saw it. Maybe it was some kind of rock formation? We all agreed at camp that we were going to go back in the morning and find a way to get up there and figure out what it was.

But, the next day it wasn't there, nor was there anything on that hill that could explain what we thought we had seen. All we saw were trees. It may have been a strange cloud behind the hill.

A couple of years ago while hiking through a wooded area that I've visited many times since I was a kid, I found this stone circle formation.  No clue of its age or meaning.  Surprised I never saw it before, or at least don't remember seeing it when I was there as a kid.

It looks like Spinal Tap ordered a Stonehenge prop but got the measurements wrong.

Yeah, it's pretty much like a budget version of Stonehenge.  Like a bunch of druids decided to have their own stone circle for worship but couldn't be bothered with putting in much effort.

Gonna head up to Saratoga and see if I can get permission this week. Kenin bolstered my resolve on this. Don't worry guys. I'm determined to deliver unlike some folk on here. ;-)

That's really neat. I wonder what the site was used for?

What, in all the world, could I do to earn my living and still live as myself, as I knew myself to be? Temporary masks, I knew, had their place; everyone was wearing them, they were the human rage; but not masks cemented in place until the wearer could not breathe and was eventually suffocated.

  • Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

Posted 02 June 2013 - 09:48 PM

One thing I remember from when I was like 10 or 11 was walking uphill along a trail along a deep ravine with creek in the bottom, and on the other side, on a cliff top was a white stag, with a full rack. Maybe a 8+ point buck. When I hoofed it around to where I could cross and returned to the spot, it was gone. This was in the middle of the day too.

Another thing we (My brothers and friends) found was multiple cars buried in the hillsides in a couple spots. From the doorhandles and other items, we guessed that the cars were from the 1920s. We suspect that loggers back in the day just pushed the cars into ravines when they stopped working and silt covered them up and the springs moved into a new coarse. We spend hundreds of hours digging up those cars. Found thousands of small artifacts. Even found some old logger ax heads, picks and hammers.

Another thing we found was a deposit of red lava cinder. It was about the size of a car and there was no way it was brought into the woods. It maybe was from some gigantic eruption, like Mt Mazama that created Crater Lake.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.
