I moved to a small town near LBL when I was 16. That was in the late 80's. I had left Detroit and moved into the country with my father. There is a
lot of old ground in that area and I would spend hours in the woods without ever seeing anyone.Two things struck me as odd about the area:
1) I was given a 16 gauge shotgun and told NEVER go into the woods unarmed. Which was odd because in Detroit my father always told me not to get
"involved" with guns
2) There were signs along the roads back then that said "DO NOT EXIT YOUR VEHICLE DURING HOURS OF DARKNESS" -they said to lock the doors and turn on
your hazard lights and wait for the park services.
I had always assumed it was due to the amount of illegal activity that takes place on LBL. They used to make moonshine in the area, but now it's
I was stationed at Fort Campbell and used to hike LBL several times a week up until last year. I never saw anything out of the ordinary, but I stayed
on the well used trails.
