Foundered

I'm betting it's a backyard project that ran out of steam, or the builder died and his (it usually is a he) heirs wanted to get ride of it. It's not easy to dispose of something like that, a steel boat legally so...they figured dump the mouldy old carpets at the same time.
Just as some people keep motorcycles in barns I suppose. A sailing dream foundered.

Nah... that fallen tree kept them from sailing further, so they abandoned ship.

I know trains do travel on land...

But this caboose was about 15 miles from the nearest railroad track and town,
and more than 3 miles past the end of the paved road, and 500 yards from the nearest gravel road.
A long ways from any house or anything.



In the middle of fookin' nowhere in a big field, sitting on a single section of track.
Gutted on the inside from burning, Hmmmm

There is a very large portion of a sizable passenger jet sitting in a field not far from my dad's place in OH. It is in too good of shape to have crashed. I'll get a picture of it.

Very interesting! Google maps does show names of some of the trails in Penrose - any idea roughly where you were?

On the eastern side, quite close to the fields you can see in Google Earth.

We were on Stingray Rd at one stage.
A road named Stingray in a forest that has an iron boat? That's kind of odd too isn't it.

Could be sold for scrap now, it has been a while since I have ridden past.

I will look next time I am out & about.

Look around........Tucker Road, Green Valley Road, Cochran Road, Dunham Road, Mile Creek Road, Granny Creek Road, Braddock Road,

All just east of Sparta OH.


Have fun, good luck!

Popular with the ladies....

It seems to me that most tourist attractions in Australia are made out of stone.

Sorry, I didn't get my bike in the shot...it would have detracted from the total feel.

Thanks Jaq. I will go and have a look see, one of these days. I am down in Shellharbour, so not too far to go from here.
Speaking of odd things... - I spotted the outline of a plane beside a trail up in the Picton area on google maps. Some homework revealed that a light plane had come down in the area 20 years ago. Mmmm ... maybe some wreckage to find. I spent a couple of hours clambering through the area as best where I reckoned the point on the map was. Couldnt find a thing. Came to the conclusion that a plane wreck (with fatalities) would have meant a complete clearing and removal of all wreckage and debris.
Bit of a wild goose chase but you never know ...
