Back from the lab with more unauthorised shots of the former Joliet Army Ammunition Plant, currently designated as Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie. Surprised by what I found!

When I say I'm 'clean and sober', it means I've showered and I'm headed to the liquor store.

Two of the most famous products of Berkeley are LSD and Unix. I don’t think that this is a coincidence.

Skipping all the internal drama here...

Great galleries. Are you shooting with film and what ISO? I'm digging this gallery.

WOW! Great shots! Is this place still accessible? It's been on my radar for a while but haven't made the trip yet. I plan to make a weekend trip sometime and do this and the old prison, and maybe a few other local spots I know of.

Jeeze, I haven't logged on in quite some time. To the folks that say this shouldn't be private I have two things for you, I have been on here for 12 years are I am not a full member so, I can't make private posts. This entire area is patrolled by the United States Department of Agriculture Police. They have guns, they are federal, and they patrol. It is 100% legal to hike around per the police whom I have first hand experience chatting with and still accessible. So I say, look it up, snap a million photos, good luck vandalizing it, you will be charged with federal level destruction of property.
Message me if anyone wants to meet up there some time!!
(Tick season starts in mid April-October, I would not advise you walk around much during that season.)

I've got nothing going on this next week. I've never seen the majority of the depot, so it may be time to go back.

I'm happy you posted this. The photos you were posting before looked so much like it I was scratching my head trying to figure out how I could have missed so much the times I've gone.
