  1. Exploring abandoned house literally in the middle of nowhere. I get chills when I find one of Texas most dangerous predators lurking in the shadows. Check it out!
  2. So like a bunch of us, I'm sure, I have a lot of video out-takes from larger projects. Some of these larger projects ended up being unusable for various reasons, or in some cases I started filming things only to decide later that what I had was a minute or two of interesting stuff but nothing truly video-worthy. What to do with these outtakes? I don't want to delete them and they might be interesting to others, but there's usually no real story or context, just a momentary vignette, a glance at life that is here and then gone. So I'm putting together a playlist called "Coyote's Short Takes" and I'll see if it generates any interest. There are two video already loaded, one is being loaded as I type this, and another will be loaded later. Three of them are from a hunting trip up to the Idaho side of the Selway-Bitterroot wilderness, another one features my dogs at an Oregon Trail interpretive site. I took almost 20 minutes of video only to find later that the howling wind made the whole thing utterly pointless (not to self: get wind sock microphone). I only had a couple minutes' worth of video that could be heard, and it was an impromptu moment with my dogs being silly. The outtake is called "Couch Wolves". These videos are less than 3 minutes in length but as I mentioned, there's not really any "story" behind them. One of them just has some music that I felt was appropriate, since the audio was me and a friend having a conversation that would be meaningless to a listener. What do you think? Waste of time or an interesting use of otherwise discarded video material? yhow,
  3. Hey everyone, so this is my first explore post, I'm probably going to be slow sharing since I'm planning on waiting until my YouTube videos come out. but I just wanted to give an update on Olinghouse Nevada. I was out there about a month ago with my friend. As some of you may know there is many rumors about the Olinghouse area being guarded by an "old man with a gun chasing people of the property". Well I took a few trips out there because I really wanted to get some cool footage. I didn't go into all of the structures because it seemed like the floors weren't sturdy enough to hold my weight. My friend went in them but she only weighs about 115 lbs. The mine has been purchased and is currently active. We went on a Sunday after the first ground freeze because that's usually when mining operations stop for the winter. There was still a lot of activity of a small ATV vehicle going back and forth to the miners headquarters building, so we tried to stay hidden as possible. I looked at the Olinghouse Facebook page just a few days ago and it said people tried to get permission to go out there but were denied, so I'm glad I got what I did without being seen. The place is still in really good shape. Its hard to tell the age of some of the buildings, most of them have probably been frankensteined over the years since its been a home to squatters, meth-labbers, and the occasional mine enthusiast. If you plan on exploring the area, I suggest at least with 4 wheel drive and drive past the headqaurters building and do a little 4wheeling to the back ranch house and you can stay hidden easier from back there. There is also a road that seems to lead to some interesting thing that I can see from the Sat pics, but I will definitely need an ATV to get there. anyways. Here is the video if you'd like to check it out. See you out there! Backwoods Beast

  5. June 06, 2013|by meteorologist Abby Dyer, KY3 News | adyer@ky3.com MELVA, Mo. -- Hidden away in the foothills of Taney County are ruins of a town that few Ozarkians remember. Don Rittenhouse, a Hollister resident, had ancestors who lived in Melva. “The old town site, the old hotel or boarding house, whatever they call it, by the railroad and then I saw where they had built houses up there on the lots. The best I remember, they didn’t have foundations; a lot of them just had rocks," said Rittenhouse. There isn't much left of Melva today. If you hike to see the ruins, you'll see several old foundations and a tall chimey that still stands amongst the trees. Juanita Campbell and her family lived in Melva for awhile. “I’m thrilled to death to see what’s left of it today. It’s like emotionally coming home. It feels great just to see it, it really does,” said Campbell. Melva had a relatively short life. People began to migrate there in the early 1900s as the Missouri Pacific railroad was completed north to Branson. Others who lived here made a living by farming or selling fruit and lumber. “It was a mining and railroad town. It had a big bridge crew," said Rittenhouse. Melva provided some hope for hardworking families. Then, on March 11, 1920, it almost disappeared. A violent tornado ripped through the Melva and changed the landscape and the lives of those that lived there forever. The tornado claimed 11 lives and flattened the town. Only a few homes and the schoolhouse were left. “Well, my dad and his parents lived there at Melva when the tornado came through," said Rittenhouse. The twister also destroyed Melva’s future. “I don’t think they tried to rebuild much. It just kind of disappeared, moved out, and I don’t remember being there much.” “So many were people injured and killed in it and that’s the main reason I think that they did not rebuild it. Plus the fact that you had Hollister at that time and Branson at that time so it was a very, very small rail stop," said Taney County historian Larry Howe. Today, part of the land is owned by Branson Creek Properties and its accessible from a hiking trail through the woods. “We fully intend to leave Melva intact, preserve the history as well as a few other parcels on this property. We want people just like Juanita to come back for years to come," said vice president of development Scott Bailey.Branson Creek Properties has mapped out how to see the Melva ruins.
