So I asked my mother about the tunnel under the hospital and it is very real.
While she was in training she used it to get to the main hospital from the nurses' residency without going outside. They would find "Rubby Dubbs" ,as she calls them, crawling through the small windows and sleeping on the striper frames.

I'll post more info when I have it.

I did some recon in the hospital a while ago. Maybe this is the tunnel she means?
Interesting choice of floor color for a hospital. :P Made me think of The Shining...

That's probably the tunnel she spoke of, I wonder if it still goes through to the residence.

hey im kinda new in here and have a couple questions,
i was down in douglas darkie yester day and walked for a couple hours i made it pretty far down does anyone actually know how far it goes and if there are more larger rooms? you got past 2 big rooms (san juan, giant orgie room) we then continued on we got past a few man hole entrances then the pipe seemed to be getting smaller so we turned around and popped up somewhere on shelburne st, any way has anyone gone further? or down one of the small "some place" tubes?
also i believe in the next week if i can get a day off im going to go under douglas street, and ross bay has anyone been down there and what should i look out for?

thanks

1) Yes.
2) Giant translucent spiders. Unpleasant sulfates from a nearby something-or-other that evacuates waste water via the tunnel. Pointy stalactites. Satanists. The undead.

Check the tide charts before you go. Then check them again, and, for good measure, check the tide charts one more time.

Good luck. Let me know how it works out.

Sounds like you've been doing some serious hunting.
Metchosin? That's interesting. Are you referring to Humpback, which is near Metchosin?
And 10+ ft of concrete/entrances. I'm not going to ask any questions, just wanted to say that that sounds like you've been up to something good.
Have fun in the drains. They are fun.
Welcome to UER!!

And....if anyone is interested......next week i'm able to resume explorations (cough cough). Drains etc. I'd love to meet up with some of the newer folks on this board. I'm still busy this week, though.


On another note....was there some kind of dispute between explorers in 2005? Came across an old anti-UER banner on Wraiths yesterday. Something appeared to be heated and uncharming. Was just....curious, that's all. Is it taboo/uncouth to talk about, or are things back to Peace and Love again?

ive done a little bit of research lol and thanks for the welcome i actually picked up storm drain maps, and sewer maps for victoria beacon hill fairfield james bay and a couple other areas today so hopefully ill find something good and fun, as for the tunnels being sealed up my friends grandpa filled in the tunnels with concrete a few years ago or more after some misunderstanding with the homeless as i believe, as for the tunnels in metchosin there out near the café there kind of in the open but still somewhat hidden.

i may need help reading the maps if anyone thinks they can

Wraiths...? Inconsequential. A mere sidebar to what is otherwise a ridiculous saga re: a dwarfish ninja fond of 2 way radios, secret code words and grappling hooks. A wee Napoleonic figure dressed in ninja jammies. Something like that. Never met the dude, but he used to visit UER to offer scathing remarks about anything that offended his UE sensibilities.

He's banned from UER now.

OK.
That's all i needed to know. Thanks, KK.

I would be interested in meeting that grandpa. Not so much for what he directly saw.....but because I'm trying to find ways to get in touch with old workers.
All 'official' avenues have so far yielded nothing, but other methods are......
well, i shouldn't spill the beans yet.

Drains. On the maps, everything is 200mm unless otherwise noted. On old maps, sometimes large drains and san sewers are labeled in feet. On most maps, and all new maps, the big walkable drains are labeled in millimetres. (>800mm=backbreaker, 1100+= walkable). So look for drains that have really big numbers attached. First#=height, 2nd#=width. Scour the maps. There's more than what meets the eye. There's even one drain that branches off 5 times.
And no, I haven't done that drain yet. (nudge, nudge, wink, wink).

Metchosin. Have you seen these with your own two eyes? Please, only a yes or a no answer.....it's probably best for you to keep the details for yourself, especially if
a) you found it yourself, and
b)if it's something special

It's probably not what I was thinking of.
You see, I heard from 3 different people, a cool homeless guy who worked in the mining sector, a friendly and indescribably helpful yet (sort of....autistic-ish?) government worker who I can't stop bumping into everywhere, and a random freak who does creepy shit behind my school......they all told me that way up in the Sooke hills, in Langford, somewhere quite impenetrably deep in the woods, lies an enormous tunnel blasted out of solid rock, much like the one(s) the GCG discovered under Victoria. Apparently had to do something with the water supply system, but is now high and dry.
Yet another mystery worth looking into.
(And since the City of Victoria is probably reading this thread closely, I'll also add that the three people who alerted me of this Langford-Shangri-La all said that the tunnel has been impenetrably sealed for deacades and has since caved in).

NinjaKlutz, I'm totally down with some joint exploration. Maybe we can check out that big ass RCP I found... still haven't been down there.

Hmm... They are doing a lot of work on the water pipes by the potholes. Maybe the workers out there have an idea of what to look for. I would imagine it would be close to the old rail right of way.

Anyone know the legend about the Spanish gold and the tunnel around Leechtown?

I'm pretty sure that I can penetrate the forest on my iron horse.
