Dave's Old Truck Rescue. One of my road trips out west I had to pull off the interstate to take a work phone call. The road dropped me off in a tiny town in Washington, and I pulled to a stop on the first street that didn't look like it had heavy truck traffic going past me. When I actually looked up, there was a car graveyard right next to me that completely distracted me from the call.

Ran across this at Louisville Swamp on one of my evening hikes one night a couple of years ago. Somebody must have nicked it, because it was gone the next night.

These walls are what is left of my Great-Great-Grandfather's one-room thatched-roof house in Ireland (built c. early 1860's). Behind the overgrown vegetation you can just make out a couple of small modern buildings built on the property but have since been abandoned. When I visited in 2018, by my calculations, I was the first blood relative to set foot on the premises in over 100 years.

I don't think those are boat tracks, either

So... I was pretty sure my first one wasn't any worse than the other dead things already posted... but since it got zapped anyway, here's a new entry. Sinking into the ground.
