The wooden case you see above was recently found in the trash by someone on Reddit. It's large — 29" by 38" — and had all sorts of goodies inside, including hand-drawn maps, bizarre depictions of extraterrestrial visitations, and technical drawings (for all of the images below, you can click to enlarge):
There's more — a lot more. And it was all found in a box that was left in the trash! Amazing. You can get the full scoop here.
In other PermaRec-ish news:
• A Canadian man has found a message in a bottle dating back to 1906, but he refuses to open the bottle.
That's all for now. Sorry for the lengthy break between posts — it's good to be back. More soon.
