fucking epic!!!




Kabbalah is an undramatic tradition that requires great patience and stability. One of the reasons for this tempo is that everyone has to mature his potential gradually and thoroughly at his natural pace. In this way his life's work unfolds at the right moment in his own and the cosmos's time.

Yeah we saw sensors. Figured since people were going and walking all over and then using the full name when posting it online it didn't matter. Especially since it got smashed up and tagged not long after that started happening. Only a matter of time until those organ pipes get looted.

Thanks dude! Yeah it was a hell of a year for exploring. Next year will probably prove to be even better. We should definitely get together again soon.

Looks like you kept yourself busy.

Birchwood and Pines look even more trashed than I recall.

You know it man. And yes they are both pretty shitty. Birch over the Pines though, for sure.

I hope we get the chance to meet up again in 2017 dude.

You've had quite the epic year! I am amazed how many hospitals are still left out your way. I am planning on taking a few exploring road trips this year. I imagine one will be down your way.

Oh yeah, there are tons. Unfortunately we lose more and more as the years pass. 10 were demolished/renovated just in NJ in 2015. So now I'm having to travel much further to see new hospitals. But I really don't mind, Please let me know when you're coming through and I'll try and make myself available if you can stand the company. There is a massive easy psych hospital campus just 45 minutes north of me, and several more just a short drive further.
