Christmas Day/Day After

So I was left to my own devices for a couple of days, so I did the only responsible thing I could do. Drive around and take pictures, with a little light trespassing. I figured it was the best way to keep myself out of trouble.

I picked up around the area that I left off on a while back when it rained on me all day long. Today it held off till I was already half way home, so today worked out much better. I did not get to go inside many spots, but still had a good time driving around. Just shy of 600 miles on the car, but got a surplus of pics, and came across a few new places that I will have to revisit.

Onward with the picgasam.

First place I visited is an interesting area, a town square that is chock full of antique cars and decor. It is actually a venue that is rented out for weddings and such. Has a few guest houses on the site, one of them being the original town jail. Went there before and there was an event going on, yesterday I had the place to myself. Not real adventurous seeing how it is all set up and staged, but for just taking pics, I think it is a great spot. I am thinking it would actually be a neat place for a photography club or group to have a weekend away.
Here are a few shots from there.

There was in fact a genuine abandoned house across the street, I went inside and it really felt to me that there was someone living there. Weird vibe man, weird vibe. So I stepped right out without taking any pics inside.

Down the road we go. Nest stop finds us at an old schoolhouse. Typical layout with classrooms in the corners, central hallway. The bathrooms were separate from the classroom building, an obvious add on.

Alas the doors were padlocked and solid.

There were some really nice trees around the area too.

This one even had an abaondoned dupliex under it.

Around the corner,

And down the block.

There is another school house in another little town that I have been hoping to get into for a while now. Checked on it today and the doors are still solidly locked, and one even had a new padlock on it.
But there were a couple of busted window panes.
This is a really small school, I am surprised it has an auditorium inside. Check that curtain, with a painting of a curtain. I really want in here. (None of the towns listed are the town this place is in go figure)

Seating for less than 200.
12-26-17 by Road Extx, on Flickr
And something I've never seen, the room behind has chalkboards that raise up into the wall to provide extra seating perhaps?
12-26-17 by Road Extx, on Flickr

Down the road again. A little house that I had visited before but did not go into because stinging things.

This, obviously a kids room, besides the two bsds there were bunk beds behind me.

From what must have been the dining area looking towards the front room.

Another bedroom, there were three total.

Front room.

In the garage, I was surprised to see this. I bet it would still run with just a little work.
12-26-17 by Road Extx, on Flickr

Let's see, what else, I came across this old gas station/bar/restaurant. Doors were all padlocked though.
12-26-17 by Road Extx, on Flickr
But there was one glass block broken out.
12-26-17 by Road Extx, on Flickr
Next door. Check out those heavy cold storage doors.
12-26-17 by Road Extx, on Flickr
And behind.
12-26-17 by Road Extx, on Flickr

Another town, more old stuffs.
12-25-17 by Road Extx, on Flickr
Meh, I just liked the curtain flapping in the wind.
12-25-17 by Road Extx, on Flickr
One of our members mentioned this place before, the roof is currently collapsed. Was it like that when he visited?

Next!
A freaking hospital that I would love to get in, but all the doors I found were welded shut. Seriously, come on!
12-25-17 by Road Extx, on Flickr
Let me in!
12-25-17 by Road Extx, on Flickr


And now for random houses and such.

Note the wire run along the top of the fence? Homemade hot fence for the win.

Wow! I love the theater curtain - it seems to be in fairly good shape too.

Very impressed, but I recommend you get in the habit of numbering your pictures.

I'm disturbed by the subtle asymmetry of this image. That is either sloppy work, or evidence of sloppy work.

Right? I've never seen anything like it, and especially in that good shape. I so want to get in there.

lol
I used to name them all different names. I have gotten lazy with the naming. But I will do my best to number them. I have been studying the pic, I do not think I was perfectly centered up. I'll go back soon and try to do better. And I might chop down that tree.
