Went on a sweet adventure today *pix* DUW

I went to this crazy abandoned glass factory today. It looks like it has caught on fire a couple of times. Its about a 20 minute drive from my house and I never knew it existed until a friend of mine suggested we go today. Here are some of the pictures.


From inside the main building.

A tree growing out of concrete.

The inside of one of the smoke stacks.

The outside of the same smoke stack.

Standing on a 2 foot pipe 3 stories in the air looking up at the main building.

Standing on a pipe looking at the roof of one of the smaller buildings.

Some more pictures, couldn't fit them all in one post:





Spiral ramp in the basement of the factory...pretty much my favorie picture out of all of the entire set.



Cool graffiti...

I got all different colors and kinds of pieces of glass. I had to get over my fear of heights too...and I did successfully!

nice!
all the abandoned building around my are are far too dangerous to be exploring like that.
one of them they tore down was an old steel mill that has asbestos everywhere. it cost millions of dollars because they couldn't let any dust rise.

yeah well...there was a lot of asbestos everywhere, I had to be really careful not to make a big dust cloud whenever I waslked or touched anything. Thats really hard for me because I'm not what anyone would define as graceful. I just pulled my shirt up over my face when I was walking around inside.

it has been forever since I posted...got a new job that takes up a lot of time. but I'm baaaack.

I was crazy filthy...I took a looooooong shower, the only thing I was worried about was the asbestos though, I got my tetanus shot a couple of months ago. Next time I'll be wearing a mask and some long sleeves. My arms got scratched up by all the jaggers everywhere, pretty much the only injury I sustained.

She has 70 something posts and you guys all wonder where she went.

Anyway, one or two of those pics look really familiar.

Woot.

Its a good idea to keep a surgical mask around when your entering abandoned factories... Lots of nasty chemicals could just be lying around or suspended in the air.

Or if your a hardcore mofo like me you'll bring a gas mask.

It starts with Ho.

Sounds similar to "mofo".

You figure out the rest...
