Here is the initial post I had made just in case people don't want to wade through...
I have had many weird things happen or have seen in my course of hiking and camping; I'll share one experience that has stuck out to me over the years though. My grandparents owned a house on Satatoga Lake N.Y. and as a kid I spent almost every Saturday there when my mother would go visit. As I got a bit older, I would leave the house (out of boredom) and go hiking around the surrounding woods. When you hike about a half hour away you can get to an old train track path (the track no longer exists). That's usually when I would turn around but I had my headphones and walkman on so I decided that day to go past the stretch. It was nice warm and sunny with little breeze so the hike went pretty good. About an hour into the woods I stumbled across a structure that I couldn't figure out why it would be there. It was a moss covered stone with all sorts of odd scrawls on it almost like language but unknown to me. This stone was old. It only caught my eye because of the writings 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...
Second and third relavent post:
-New owners still haven't replied to my inquiries over going on the property. I'm thinking I might be brazen enough to drive up in person. (I was contacting them through snail mail) I originally was going to head up but my fiance advised mailing them first. We don't know what type of people they are haha.
-I finally got a response from the owners of Grandpa's property. I'm allowed to go on the property now! (Sadly they are not letting me in the house. I asked for nostalgia sake but I understand the privacy and all...) I can finally get back into the woods and get to that stone. I have a week off of work for vaca time (24th through the 30th)
I condensed it because I had double posted a few times because my phone sucks... But I fully plan on getting some friends together to find this stone again now that I have permission on the property!
Photos to follow soon, but for anyone interested in Google Earth following, here are the approximate coordinates without compromising the privacy of the owners:
~43 2'55.31N 73 43'9.32W
Updates coming soon!
