Those are really old. Log homes built from old growth trees really rock, but they aren't made of rock.

I can't remember the man's name, or the state ... I read about the case on a Missing 411 site (David Paulides). Does anyone know this case, and if it was solved? These are the details, as I recall. Creepy ...

He left his home in the wee hours of the morning to scope out hunting land.
He was on an ATV (4 wheeler)
Didn't come home, search parties went out.
Some hours (days?) later, his ATV was located on a ridge, his clothes were folded neatly on top.
His body was found in shrubbery near a pond behind his house.
He was frozen though it was not freezing weather
His blood was drained from his body
He had a look of sheer terror on his face
His boot was hanging from a tree, high above him
His family was not told the truth of what happened
Government Agents kept details classified

Sounds interesting, hopefully someone provides a link to this story.

I've always been interested in the tons of phantom hitchhiker stories I read as a kid. I wonder how that urban legend got started and why it's stuck around like it has.

Found it ... Todd Sees, Pennsylvania

Just watched a Youtube video "Brain Scratch"

EDA: He was not frozen, but was oddly emaciated??? They think hypothermia because clothes were off, but it was warm weather. Cocaine was found in the bit of blood left in his body. This whole scenario is strange for a drug OD.

What are your thoughts, everyone? What killed Todd? I do not believe in UFO's, but this case haunts me.

Is this true? If so, how was it debunked and when? I haven't heard anything about this case in quite a while.

Those are 1000 years old, give or take a couple of 100 yrs., depending on which ones. But the thing is, some of the 1000 year old ones are still inhabited. At Acoma Pueblo ("Sky City"), Taos Pueblo, and Hopi Reservation, there are people still living in similar buildings that have been maintained all these years. At Hopi, those oldest ones aren't hooked up to the electrical grid, and IDK where they get their water, but some of them opted for solar electrification, so they could remain independent of gov't utilities. They don't like the government, up there, whether State or Federal.

Taos Pueblo is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. IDK about Acoma, or Hopi's Old Oraibi.

Taos Pueblo is the only living Native American community designated both a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and a National Historic Landmark. The multi-story adobe buildings have been continuously inhabited for over a 1,000 years.

If you google, you can find information about failed polygraphs, Air Force helicopter test flights that night, Walton staying at a friend's house while he was supposedly missing, his talking about being abducted right before the event, job contract issues, etc, etc.

Coral Castle is still interesting to me but that doesn't really quality as paranormal. He definitely used some type of electric to do whatever he did, but it still doesn't make sense since all he had was some weak ass tripod with a thing at the top of it. The tripod could not have supported the full weight of those blocks.
