Secret Wars In The American Wilderness

Kind of a /k/ spooky thread but also kind of serious. The American interior is massive. There are countless regions where the human population "officially" is zero for hundreds of square miles, even thousands. While we've all heard and have enjoyed stories of cryptids and things such as wendigos and shit. My curiosity shifts more to the realistic, albeit still surreal possibilities that these regions could be host to everything ranging from organized crime running things such as drug labs to outcast groups either politically or religiously motived or just deranged to live out in the middle of nowhere. This possibility leads my imagination into wondering; what if it's true? What if there could be straight up organized crime groups waging guerrilla warfare against each other in the middle of nowhere with even the US military being involved, either sending in SF to kill them and wipe out any evidence to keep the public dark or even funding them CIA style. There could be firefights being waged right now and nobody would know other than those directly involved in said firefights.

The possibility gets even stranger when you factor in weird mystery stories of experienced hikers with years to decades experience going missing, just for the search for these people being conducted in very weird ways, with even Army SF getting involved, searching areas blocked off from local law enforcement to "find them".

What does /k/ think of all of this and what theories and or stories do you guys have to share? Also, just general spoopy thread because why the frick not?

    Would be kind of pointless to have guerilla warfare between criminals way out there when they can instead have it in the nearest big city. I wouldn't be that surprised if a lot of shit goes through the Everglades though.

      The city guerillas would need their supply depots somewhere, with ever larger bases in ever more remote areas. Note that cartels do have tanks. Their enemies could then find out about them and hit them, which would necessitate defense structures and forces, retaliatory strikes, etc. Bam, wilderness warfare. Get any cults involved, get any inbred hicks, get SF training parties, get a lot of imagination and you'd probably get what OP describes.

        except then you would have to set up some infrastructure even if extremely crude to store all those goods, and having them hundreds of miles away from the nearest town just adds additional cost which many of these drug lords want to avoid

        They don't usually have 1 "depot" in case it gets hit, instead it's usually distributed into smaller depots. They may have 1 dedicated "reception" area where the drugs come in from out of town/state/country (ie., a warehouse near the port, or a garage near a freeway), but then its moved to another place. It could be a small mom & pop bakery, it could be a house, it could be anything they want. Usually its just a house or apartment. They can move them too of course.

        except then you would have to set up some infrastructure even if extremely crude to store all those goods, and having them hundreds of miles away from the nearest town just adds additional cost which many of these drug lords want to avoid

        This, no drug lord wants to take a loss because you want to set up some underground storage bunker 700 miles from your actual market.

        >experienced hikers with years to decades experience going missing
        I really think a lot of this comes down to a few things.
        >The park service doesn't want to admit murders happen in the parks, because the park service really tries to keep the perception up that parks are safe and healthy. Which mathematically, they are, but still. Not to mention police don't really want to deal with park crime scenes, or the jurisdictional issues that could occur in parks with overlapping states and federal/state areas. What are you going to do, get footprints from all 1,000 people who walked the park? dust the trees for prints?
        >Many "experienced hikers" may just be wandering the same few hikes or trails, and wind up getting lost or separated anyway. It really doesn't take much to get lost.
        >See above, but they may be hikers who just overestimated their abilities on a deep hike and got lost in the American interior and died of exposure, making odd choices along the way to shed weight or due to confusion/hypothermia/limb sprangs that limit mobility etc
        >Mountain lion attacks may just be more prevalent than usually recognized, which are about the only ambush predator in the US that could silently murder you and drag you off from a camp at short notice. Less likely.

        Honestly I think a lot of people just overestimate their skills or get lost entirely.

          The old adage of, "An experienced carpenter will cut off their finger before a novice does" comes to mind. While living in Arizona, I lost count of the times I'd see, "an experienced hiker went missing in XYZ mountain range!" and it later to be found out that said hiker decided they were hot shit and would pack less gear so they could challenge themselves. Not sure if I can find the news article, but one that comes to mind was a guy who went hiking on a trail in the Superstitions and decided he'd be able to navigate it without looking at trail maps. Was found few weeks later with javelinas and yotes ripping his corpse apart.

          Seriously, those kit recommendations in hiking books are usually written in the blood of several men. Follow them or the Great Mother will fricking rip you apart and laugh.

          If you bother to read the accounts of those who almost ended up missing, its clear that whatever it is, it is not connected to human activity at all. Animals can detect spooks at a much greater range than humans. You can make yourself unpalatable to evil spooks by smelling of flowers and herbs, f.ex carrying something that smells strongly of mint is an excellent idea. Spooks can, supposedly, be seen with generation 3 night vision devices. Such infrared only spooks are always evil.

          Spooks exist in different frequency bands, which our eyes interpret as color. The rule of thumb is higher frequency the better. A spook that is blue is far less likely to harm you than a spook that is only visible in infrared. The presence of a blue spook or even better, an ultraviolet spook, is also likely to discourage red and redder spooks from being present.

        >would need their supply depots
        What is a trap house?
        Guys doing organized criminal shit in some city like Detroit, Baltimore, or Chicago are not going to go all the way out into the boonies to store shit when there's plenty of abandoned shit shacks they can use for that in basically every major city they can store/do their shit in. Long travel times like you'd get if you stashed your shit innawoods increases the risk of being hit on the move. Combatting gangs that use abandoned properties is part of why in Detroit they've been trying to tear old abandoned buildings down for years, but there's always more and there's always places the cops just flat don't go.

        What you're going to see outside the cities is almost entirely smuggling and things related to it. They're going to be desperately trying to avoid detection by anyone, not just rivals, when doing it. Starting a big ass firefight on an important corridor used by basically everyone to move shit causing the cops and feds to show up isn't just going to frick things up for your enemies and can end up putting a few extra targets on your back.

          Manufacturing illegal drugs on a mass scale necessitates a large operation that you wouldn't be able to hide in the city. You also have areas in the US where transporting from Mexico to those areas is just too far, same reason why Ford manufactures their shit in Mexico while Toyota manufactures their shit in the US, because it's just too far to transport across an entire ocean. As a cartel or as some locals who want to compete against a cartel in said areas. Your only move is to manufacture on a large scale within that region which would require your operation to be located far away from any prying eyes.

          The only two villains from the Far Cry games worth a shit are the Jackal and Vaas. The Jackal because he's literally just an arms dealer who then becomes a somewhat good guy at the end and Vaas because he's a fun villain that doesn't fall for any of the cliches of villains showing how "evil" they are by killing their own men, you see him dicking around with his pirate buddies in the cutscenes and seems to actually care for their wellbeing.

    We know drug cartels have farms and labs for sure. Claymores, mines, alarms and mexicans are deep in the woods usally near deep wilderness streams and springs.
    Lone men out living in a cabin or dug out have been found over the years.

    When it comes to the cartels youd really want to be kitted up and masked as there will be trail cams watching the area. Even if you wipe em out they might come calling next week at your moms.

    Lone men likely have 0 to loose and 0 for you to gain by fricking with them.

      To be fair, I think finding and off loading any drugs from a cartel wilderness camp are the hard parts. But actually knocking one over wouldn’t be too hard with a group of 5-6 guys, NODs, and a some training or planning. Not sure it’d be worth the investment either, but it is doable.

    There is a national forest nearby that might as well be occupied by a mish-mash of law enforcement because of the craziness. I've seen a blackhawk heading in that direction and suspect it was some sort of raid. When I was in high school in criminal justice class we had a Forest Service officer come in and talk to us about how there are cartel grow ops staffed by what are basically slaves throughout the Appalachians. The guards here are told not to let any witnesses live, or else their families are killed.

    Also, never expect for there to be privacy out there. The woods are chock full of cameras unless you're really, really out there. Dude showed us a still of a guy's ass pressed up against his Jeep's window because he was having a redneck romp with some tramp by a road out there.

    Wouldn't surprise me at all. Since this is basically an /x/ thread, I've started irregularly doing patrols of my property in full autism battle rattle. NODs, thermal monocular, the good ammo and plates. Started setting up trail cams too. Haven't ever caught anything beyond the usual wildlife on 'em so thats a plus. Few too many unexplainable occurences since I started living here. Haven't told a soul about this shit yet and I've got more but these are the ones that really stand out for me:

    The first:
    >Be me, just fricking around on my property doing some chores and cleaning some shit up. Turn my head. Brightest light I've ever seen in my life. Like looking into the fricking sun with a magnifying glass. Have worst headache Ive ever had. Throw up repeatedly. Disoriented. Literally need to lay down and chug water. Felt both of my legs lock up in a full on charley horse. It took me awhile to limp home that day.

    The second:
    >Be me, fixing the posted signs on my property. Hear a "Pssst, Anon." in my wife's voice. I look around for a minute. Nothing. Go back to traipsing innawoods to inspect and repair signs. Hear it again "Anon. Hey, Anon." This time louder. Call out to her, no answer. Dead quiet and the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end. Absolutely fricking not. I took my shit and went home. My wife was in the living room doodling on her tablet. Tell her that there might be hobos on the property so bring a gun if she decides to go out.

    The third:
    >Be me, larping. Think I'm sick as frick as I'm running drills on targets that I set up in front of some of the larger trees near the woodline. Getting pretty good times. Go to reload muh magazines and take my eyes off them for a minute. They were not in the same fricking place that I had set them up. Some of them were a couple yards closer to where I've got the table set up and some were actually in the woods, with a few partially behind trees. I waited a couple of days to take 'em down.

        More likely he was in some dimly lit quiet woods and thought, "Dude, what if I saw a skinwalker, like in those apooky greentexts? That would be so awesome right now!" and basically tricked his own mind into interpreting forest sounds as a paranormal, because he wanted to.

Like looking into the fricking sun with a magnifying glass. Have worst headache Ive ever had. Throw up repeatedly. Disoriented. Literally need to lay
      Is this what happens when you're laser'd? Orders of magnitude stronger than any normal bright light.

        It's sorta like an SCP memetic hazard, it's possible that certain combos of sound/light/smell can frick your brain up something fierce in a targetted manner, pretty sure the military looked into this in the 70s

            Basically ya, it's the same principle of how red and blue flashing lights are more likely to cause a stroke but way more targetted.

      >>Be me, fixing the posted signs on my property. Hear a "Pssst, Anon." in my wife's voice. I look around for a minute. Nothing. Go back to traipsing innawoods to inspect and repair signs. Hear it again "Anon. Hey, Anon."

      If you read native american lore you will find that they had the custom of "field names" different from their regular names. It seems that these things were regular happenings to them. I've also read stories about american outdoorsmen encountering similar things.

      Furthermore, if we go by native american lore, the bigfoot and other kinds of spooks can leave behind "images" of people they abduct. They can also turn themselves into trees or boulders.

      Spooks are psychic and can read your surface thoughts. Thats probably why that spook shifted your targets. Supposedly, gold can block psychic emissions from your brain. I suspect a gold coated copper help might work too.

        >Honestly I think a lot of people just overestimate their skills or get lost entirely.

        If you bother to read the accounts of those who almost ended up missing, its clear that whatever it is, it is not connected to human activity at all. Animals can detect spooks at a much greater range than humans. You can make yourself unpalatable to evil spooks by smelling of flowers and herbs, f.ex carrying something that smells strongly of mint is an excellent idea. Spooks can, supposedly, be seen with generation 3 night vision devices. Such infrared only spooks are always evil.

        Spooks exist in different frequency bands, which our eyes interpret as color. The rule of thumb is higher frequency the better. A spook that is blue is far less likely to harm you than a spook that is only visible in infrared. The presence of a blue spook or even better, an ultraviolet spook, is also likely to discourage red and redder spooks from being present.

        I'd love to see the basis for some of this. Real or not, it's an interesting concept.

          I've done a lot of reading and analogues of the paranormal critters and things american outdoorsmen encounters are found described in sources dating back to before written history beginning 5000 years ago. The problem is that these sources are "pagan" sources, and America is a christian fundamentalist country, so they are disregarded as superstition. I have also started to suspect that some of these "critters" are neither primitive nor dumb, as in that they actually post here, on PrepHole. Sometimes anons are making cryptic posts that means nothing unless you understand how their world works.

    Camping close to water in the woods outside of policed campsites is a dangerous thing because everybody needs water, especially remote meth labs. I did it once because I was just too deadass tired to relocate to a better spot, but the empty glass containers all around me were a sign that I might have an interesting night.

    I've wandered the deepest deep part of "scary woods" and seen the "army training exercise" signs.
    There's a whole lot of actual nothing going on out there OP, it's boring.
    The singular time I've ever been way more aware and worried about something happening is deep mountain snowmobiling simply because weather, avalanche, getting stuck, or rolling a sled onto yourself are all incredibly real dangers and you're in the middle of nowhere halfway up a mountain in a blizzard if you frick up.
    Fun stuff though, but for real I rarely see moose let alone anything scarier. Definitely no secret wars but everyone in the big empty parts of the country are armed with a smile, polite wave, and usually a whole posse because safety in numbers and all that.

      There was a hot second when I lost my dad hiking back from Corona Arch outside of Moab at night without a light. I swear I heard him call me and saw movement in the corner of my eyes. But there was nothing. I was just freaking out a little bit and pushing my senses to find any clues, which made me think random noises in the stillness were actually my father calling me.

    As an experienced hiker, the idea that an experienced hiker going missing needs a paranormal explanation is ridiculous. Experienced hikers do lots of things that aren’t completely safe. It’s how you become an experienced hiker. You wouldn’t say someone was an expert if all they did was little day trips in nice weather with cell service the whole time on well marked trails.
    >t. hiked hundreds of miles solo in the desert
    >t. gone camping and snowshoeing solo in the mountains in winter
    >t. seen fresh mountain lion tracks, but no mountain lion (yet), seen bears, wolves, moose
    >t. found abandoned mines, partially collapsed with timbers over a hundred years old, as well as shafts that are just a 50 foot drop into the dark
    >t. had to cross avalanche fields, areas with crevasses
    >t. has been caught in thunderstorms well above the tree line

    >The possibility gets even stranger when you factor in weird mystery stories of experienced hikers with years to decades experience going missing, just for the search for these people being conducted in very weird ways, with even Army SF getting involved, searching areas blocked off from local law enforcement to "find them".

    it is reasonable to assume that cryptids have plucked not only hikers but also SF/Rangers that visit the area, hence the response.

    In the 80s and 90s Aryan groups in the PNW tried to do a guerilla war against normal society. They lived out in the sticks, stockpiled weapons, and robbed banks and armored cars to find their insurgency. They were enough of a problem that the Feds hunted them down. Pretty much all of them were murdered for "resisting arrest" during raids. It was basically the Phoenix Program for white nats. Even well after most of the actual dangerous groups were infiltrated and destroyed, the program continued, leading to stuff like Ruby Ridge.
