Default Safe door

Found a small piece of state land to go fish for some steehead. Noticed some old apple trees and then a small dump in the woods. Found this safe door and some older bottles and car parts. Thought the safe door is pretty cool. Looks like a home might of been here years ago. Now I have a new fishing spot in the ground and in the river.

Did you open it? May be full of riches and the rest of the safe just rotted away

Yeah I picked it up and flipped it over and no gold, just rocks.

Almost looks like someone took a chisel to it at one time. That's keeping an eye out for new hunting spots!

If the safe is from the old home-site, I'd think that would be a good indicator that they had at least a little money to lose instead of dirt-poor homesteaders.

Good thinking. Definitely will hit the spot up soon. Just got a few inches of snow today.
