Did some research on them, a typical one (like from Home Depot) comes with a 17mm head (the camera lens itself) and you can buy a different head for it as small as 9mm. Where I am thinking of a 17mm head should fit fine.

We shall discuss this further tomorrow!

BTW... did KK and I actually post that thread at exactly the same minute!?

Great work and photos HBC. I've got some ideas about a snake cam, will discuss soon. KK's photo is worth a thousand words, many have uer in them...

How's your air miles KK? You may want to fly back to help us crack this open

Looks like HBC has done much of the work leading up to awesome.


If it means having to fly (first) American Airlines (and then) Air Canada, forget it. I'll swim, then walk. Might even get there faster AND with my luggage intact.

I went back to this place a few months after our thing with some previous owner, and when I asked the new guy the same question I asked the old guy, he (new guy) looked like he wanted to shoot me. "Nope...nothing to see here."

Well...technically, yes. But it's important to remember that I'm about 4500 miles away from Victoria, and in a different time zone. So, in reality, I posted my link about three weeks before you. It just took awhile for the mail to arrive.

Alright. I'm bored. Here's some really emo environmentalist poetry that I wrote!!!

(PS--You're all adorable, whatever your views may be

Hey KK, get out your Glenfiddich, cause its poetry time with the Gardeners!


Northern Light


Chalk soft powdery plains in slumber
Traced by threads of song, of steel

Pine cloaked by sun-kissed down
Whisper secrets of the season

Wicker rime crack snap
Hoof paw flight to foliage

Vine line webbed valves skirl
Dawn rays cast brass tint shimmer

Hoarse pipe rasp wracks resonance
Hearth exhale seething sulphide soliloquy

Tower machines piercing the soil
Muscling memories into the oil

Flame horizon igniting the sky
Processing truth from beneath where bones lie

Conduit fissure’s sordid slick slough
Unfenced brine licks lure caribou cow

Death angels bearing blood cross sea
Natural gas liquefied blazing free

Summer dust coats leaf chokes lung
Diesel armada rumble invoking awe of tongue

Fracturing shale by devouring streams
Womb injected engineering materialistic dreams

A newborn illuminated by dancing chrome sight
Eyes wide glisten reflect the starry night

Maternal molecules reconfigured
Bearing witness, face disfigured

The prophet breathes a perennial fight
Awake beneath the Northern light

Awake beneath the Northern Light

I don't drink that stuff because it's piss. Nice poem though.

When I get back to Canada (provided, of course, that I'm allowed back into the country), I'll introduce you (by which I mean I'll get you absolutely hammered) to a nice little something known as Edradour Cask Strength Single Malt. If you so much as mention the word 'Glenfiddich' I'll subject you to a humiliating sexual REDACTED.

Yep, you and JP and I got down there before the place went from tea to needles.
The attitude of the new tenants is/was not friendly. At least we saw the crudely bricked over portal, with dried sandy failing mortar just begging to be removed with a kitchen knife. Or a couple of kicks from Ninja Klutz.

P.S. Please be very careful if flying A/A. Their drinks are water ed, and they had a bad accident in the fall of 2011 if I remember right. When flying A/A I always bring my flask, wear protection of a personal, (cough) Durex nature, and constantly look out the window. Then I run and tell the engineer if I see anything that they might have missed, (not seen yet) (and hopefully will) (see and miss) that's in the way. Godspeed Philip. What film was that from?

The crowd is all ages, with many kinds of people gathered; rich, destitute, and even middle class, all dressed in their Saturday best for the glow of the show. There’s no air conditioning except for the overhead fans; here you don't concern about the heat, for it's something you accept to embrace in this oasis of life among the sun-bleached memento mori of leviathan wasteland tombs that soar sun-scarred crumbling outside the door, aloft upon the subsumed soils that run the banks of Mother Mississippi, you meandering cream silt salvation of us all.

The saxophone and trumpet trudge submersively, assembling beauty through snarling mellow punctuations, as the guitarist plays down-tuned mood chords atop the bassist’s intricate sway among the waves of melancholy melody. The singer morphs into a growling griot, spitting words soaked slack in deadbeat rap roiling atop the pierce of fragmentary scream, his silver crucifix round neck shimmering beneath the dust-speckled limelight.

Eyes shut taut, the singer unleashes an evisceration of hell falsetto, searing his soul on the stage in ascent to a cosmic place like some herald of heaven clawing ragged chill within our hearts to the last of breath's exhalation.

For a fleeting moment, the audience is silent.

Then, roaring applause.

Your blurb makes me think Freddie Mercury.



Also, something that may be of interest for those mapping in their heads: I have from reliable sources that a certain underground club used to have a bricked up doorway facing the water. It was covered when it was renovated about 15 years ago.

Hey, look- a real tunnel in Victoria:



Anyone know this one? Didn't get too far in. When time permits, I shall return and shoot many a photograph.

The only bedrock tunnel so far explored and documented on the forum is this one: http://sleepycity..../A-secret-revealed

which was, if I've got my forum lore right- initially researched and tracked down by Tanuki

That linked pic would be the downflow section of what you posted if they are the same- I always wanted to go back there with waders and check out the upstream area- looking forward to seeing more pics!

That story reminded me soooo much of myself back when I was young and nieve, minus the wild hobo hairdo.

My life in mainland Burnaby was consumed by a fascination of our built heritage and the stories that each building could tell. Even the most heavily bastardized buildings, forever marred by half hearted renovations and illegal additions, would reveal themselves to me through the ornate chimney stack or hipped roof - clearly older than the vinyl siding and aluminum windows found directly below.

Once I was old enough to go to the library by myself, old enough to walk the streets one after the other in the search of the mighty old, I began keeping records. Having moved to the island years ago I wasn't sure what I could ever do with all those files, but it was reading this story last week that finally gave me my direction. I called my Mom in Burnaby and told her I wanted to hand everything over to my former elementary school and that I needed her to find a contact there for me. She balked at the idea of giving all that paper to a bunch of little kids, almost demanding that I hand it over to the historical society or something, but I insisted that it would make much more of an impact if it could somehow lure some fresh minds into appreciating the history of their community... to help them unearth the stories of the homes and shops on their own street, including their own school. There are surely more kids like this one who merely need to be shown the direction, and call me crazy but that just seems to be a little more beneficial than handing it to a group of seniors to lock away in some basement.

Would anyone know what kind of legal trouble you can get in, in British Columbia? Assuming you are caught by an officer who is having a bad day. Pretaining to sewers/drainage tunnels or popping manholes.


most likely a warning, if he is having a bad day then a ride in a police car, and 25 hrs community service
