**All discussion regarding unauthorized exploration is theoretical in nature. This place is too dangerous to explore without authorization.**
Been a few threads on this place. Here's what we know:
--"Big" tunnel, including huge caverns, is approximately 6-7 miles in length, and 300+ feet underground
--Tunnels are purported to be flooded but it's unknown if this is just the local tunnels by the main facility or the main ring itself, as nobody has ever found a reasonable access point for the "big" part of the tunnel, afaik
--Access to the biggest tunnel is unlikely to be gained from the main facility, but could possibly be gained through a number of shafts which exist along the track of the main tunnel
GOAL: Gain access to any shaft which connects to the main tunnel. If shaft is clear, and main tunnel not flooded, one or more humans are to be lowered safely down into the tunnel for purposes of exploring and also to create comprehensive documentation of the entire area both by photo and HD video.
Complications: All the access shafts are probably on private land, and their location is not well-known. The main tunnel is also over 300 feet below the surface, so the logistics of safely transporting humans to-and-from the area are not to be taken lightly.
Safety hazards: 300-foot descent, confined atmosphere of unknown quality.

Find potential entry shafts to main tunnel by cross referencing google earth and the tunnel map. I'm in Houston and ready to make this happen, if it can be determined that there is some way to actually reach the tunnels and
1: tunnels not flooded, OR
2: we find a confined space diver crazy enough to drop down for a visit
Just ask a drainer!
