Not necesarilly true.. If that old enough, the glycrin in it could be unstable, and it could detonate be the shock of droping it, or even stepping on it.. Dangerous stuff..

When I was around 16 I found two sticks of ditching dynomite in a shack/cabin... It seemed really "waxy" on the outside. I don't like things that are only designed to go boom... With as many NDs and KBs that I've had w/ conventional weapons in good order... I just don't trust out dated explosives!

The fellow must be .gov & he's "playing it by the books" for safety's sake!

That reminds me of that old Roy Scheider movie, Sorcerer.

He is hired to transport old, unstable dynamite by truck through the South American jungle, and the dynamite's sweating nitro glycerin. I won't tell you what happens.

Great movie.

That looks like the Pinenut mountains east of Carson? How's about some GPS coordinates so I can go shoot at it???

my dad was a police officer in KS. he used to tell a storie about some kid stealing some TNT from a construction site, well long storie short, he was playing with it in the trunk of his car and it went off....... they found fingers like 2-4 blocks away and the car had been blown about 10 feet out side of a very large blast mark. he also said that a house about 25 - 50 yards away had every nail jump about 1/2 inch out of place, and broke all windows on that side.

LOL...well I gotta tell you guys. Thats my nephew, he found all this crap in the mouth of an old mine when we were on our Ely Ghost Town trip. The tube is empty and it was a stick of dynamite.....I thought the photo was funny as shit. Ive got a photo of about a hundred of those laying in the mouth of a mine.

Thats amazing, I have never seen anything like that. In North Texas our rock is always dug with machines, it's not hard. Mostly weathered limestone.
I feel for those miners, that type of hard rock causes silicosis. I am sure most miners have a reduced quality of living. Especially if they leave those all over the place.
Link Posted: 9/27/2005 12:05:05 PM EDT
yeah the miners had it tuff....they got a disease from dust in the mines they called it "rocks in the box"......Hard times back then.

Never been accused of being "too smart", huh?

Empty! LOL! You can find old dynamite around old mine sites in my neck of the woods as well. Actually, quite a few of the old mines have some really cool artifacts lying around.
