how about entrances in markets square? i heard there was one in the basement there
and i know there is something in pair o dice tattoos in the back staff room, i got all my tattoos done there and im able to go in the back room pretty much when ever i want unless its relly busy, i looked down the door way into the tunnel and it looks like it might be blocked off, it goes back like a good 30 feet but i couldnt go all the way back because its being used as storage, i can probably get a picture if anyone is interested?

Market Square. Quite right.

And Ferrum......he's onto something, just so everyone knows.


Indeed, the historic waste management is very interesting.

And these wooden pipes keep on popping up in the oddest of places.

There are some shots of old wooden ones like that in the DB. Viking found some as he tracked the Inter Urban line years ago.

Sounding more and more like i may be moving to Vic this winter.




I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me, and it'll happen to you, too!

Wicked, I'm going out there tomorrow. The Beaver Lake Dam is also a good find in that area. My Great Grandfather Surveyed the Interurban, I'm checking his notes...

You guys RULE.
Tweeek.....awesome awesome awesome work.

Ferrum..... that IS very cool, but i ain't exactly alluding to that......were you joking?
Lets hold hands and skip through UVic library while smoking daisy chains. There's a volume of books that for Urbexers to come across is the equivalent of Mic Jagger being left in charge of a pharmaceutical shop during the graveyard shift.

So this is an open invitation--there is a 21 volume set of books in Uvic. About 25 000 pages. FULL of technical stuff. I've snooped through a fair bit of it, and got rewarded. So i think it's time to read all of it. But there's soooo much to go through............i would love to have some companions to research with. Anybody? Anybody? This would be sooo right up your alley, A.Lien......

Oh yeah. Did i say there's rewards??

Hard rock miners, great stuff, Tweek is going for the gold, and finding it. Supposedly there's a hidden underground lake on Mnt. Prevost in Duncan... or somewhere up there, it's like a legend, or something... Srysly, ask R.C.

Last night SourDiesel and I went on a big exploration. We explored a drain deep under Fairfield. First, we went south in the direction of the outfall. When we got to the weird outfall thingy, we heard big waves. And we remembered JP and Tanuki's experience. So we went North quite quickly.
We were hoping to see a lift station, it turns out the Eberts station was next to the drain, separated by brick and rock. The metal thing on the ground in one of the pix is where water was gathered,siphoned down an adjacent tube, and then pumped to the hidden lift station.
Further north, we came across the concrete pipe. At the end of it, it turned into a totally crawlable brick tunnel. This mini-tunnel actually goes and does a two block loop before re-connecting to the main tunnel.
As for the 2 backreaker offshoots on my maps, it turns out that while they do exist, they are separated from the main tunnel by several feet of rock.
while they do run parallel to the tunnel, they do not actually connect to it.
Further north, we came across a 10 minute long section that had the most stunningly awesome stalactite calcite formations. It felt like we were in the ribcage of a whale.
We didn't get to do the entire drain. While not fully walkable as i had previously thought, the drain totally maintains its size as it goes north. I have to say, it is a much more traversable and much cleaner drain than the Cecelia creek system.
Anyways, i think we got more than we bargained for, in a good way! A beautiful drain, i'd love to check out the far northern section some other time.
And it was a real pleasure to explore with you, SourDiesel, you were really fun to explore with!
Good times!
Bon appetit!

Good to see the pictures up, it was definitely a cool drain to go into, i just wish we could have got to the lift station, that would have been awesome! any way i think if we had a skate board of some type we should definitely go and check out the smaller rcp we saw near the end (the one that loop's).
just wanted to say it was a good time exploring with you NK and we definitely need to go back out and d0 some more.
possibly with some more ue'rs.
