Re: #8 "Sheep Man Sees You" graffiti. My theory, it's a reference to "Dance, Dance, Dance" by Haruki Murakami, http://en.wikipedi..._Dance_%28novel%29 Spoiling it just a little, in that context I think it means "Death sees you."


Very subtle indeed. Cool reference. Thx.

Very Cool! So glad you got to see it and photograph it before it falls apart or gets demolished.

It won't get demolished it was already decided that it will be left alone to die naturally

I mean I know what it means, I was looking for something more specific, like the actual reason you gave the guy for your presence there

I'm guessing that if he asked you something like "What are you doing here?" you wouldn't say "trespassing" or "I left my bag there the last time I trespassed and just wanted to get it back

something like:

" I'm doing an art / photography / documentary project for a college class and I'm here to take photos of the surrounding area "

" I thought I saw a stranded wind surfer / boat / swimmer, so I came out here to get a closer look "

Just visited this place last night. My recommendation would be to visit it during the summer and during daytime. It isn't really overwhelmingly scary at night..or even eerie for that matter, so going at night isn't any more adventurous than going during the day. Go during the summer too because this place can be really REALLY muddy.. The 'exploration' aspect of the place is rather dry and it is not a super exciting place, however it would be well worth the walk if you went during a summer day. Why? Because the beauty of this place has nothing to do with the fact that it's a ghost town..it's pretty basic actually, it has quite a few houses but most of them have no more than three or four rooms, and you can pretty much see through every wall. But what makes this place pretty cool is how decrepit the place is, how much it's fallen. The buildings are literally getting taken over by the mud; one of the buildings was apparently a two story hotel but the first story has since sunken into the mud. The last residents may have left in '79, however some of these places haven't had anyone living inside them since the 50s. So if you go, go during the daylight because this place has been practically unmaintained for over half a century, so that's 50+ years of mother nature retaking civilization and you can't really enjoy it fully at night. Some people may not like it, but what draws me to abandonments is the idea of the "what if humans disappeared", and minus the graffiti, this place captures it rather well. That's why it's a neat place. I would recommend it if you're in the area and have no plans.

No, however I recorded my adventures on a video camera. I'll have to edit it and if it's viewable, I'll share it on this thread. However the footage isn't that great, I'll have to clip a lot out.

Some of those holes and random dips would be pretty dangerous at night too.
