Odd, not much there that's wooded that I would think a dead body could be for several days...

that is wierd. Zoom in, and some small woods to the west of your pin, but sure not a big area at all. I think that would freak me out if I came across that on the hunt. Have seen interesting "bones" around caches and along trails, but most likely deer.

Luckily there aren't any substations, stadiums, towers, churches, schools, etc. etc. etc. in that spot, or I could have been the one who found the decomp--that area is in my quad for the NMC, and I've been busy the last couple of weeks getting waypoints. So far, the nearest waypoint I have to that area is the Dakota Co. Burnhaven Library approx. .4 miles NE.

I'm generally ok with many different sorts of things. I think if I found a dead body that was a maximum of a day dead I'd have no problem with it. If I found someone that was partialy decomposing though Shocked I can't even think of how I would react. I'm sure it would scare me really good! Too bad though about the guy dying... Did they find a GPS near him at all? Laughing

I was an unfortunate individual in that I was near some of the mass graves in Bosnia when I was over there. "Advanced state" would be a kind word to say about those. I didn't hurl or anything like that but it was an amazing sight to see. We were told not to take pictures but I probably couldn't have taken any anyhow. I was outright mesmorized by what I saw.

And many of them are still being held by their host faction and not being tried under international law, but I digress.
