Tires and Steam

I got here too late I'm afraid. The 800,000+ sft factory I came to see was being demolished. But I wasn't totally out of luck. A massive steam plant remained, open and untouched since the '80's. I spent a couple hours wandering down an old power canal while I waited for the workers to leave the site. Then a quick trip through the crumbling steam plant.












Thanks for looking!

Pretty cool
Exercise extreme caution as anything can break loose at a touch, well anchored and/or solid in appearance only.
Hell holes maybe completely hidden until you step on what's on top of them.
High top lace up boots will save your ankles, maybe more.



Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.

This whole place looks like it would be filed with hell holes!


Steam plant was a nice find.

Pics of drain pipes maybe weren't my thing, but the pics of the machine room were extremely dope. Good find, glad you got to document it before it got turned to rubble.

Tell me about it! My worst run in to date happened at the bottom of an old elevator shaft. The standing water at the bottom was so still a thick layer of dust accumulated over the surface. Looked just like concrete until I stepped in and plunged into shockingly deep water. Split my knee open on some jagged metal a few feet under the surface. I've ever stopped wonder what would have happened if my ankle got caught.

Yeap... you were lucky.
Give a buck to see what was going through your mind and look on your face as the "floor" gave way
Never trust a "puddle" either.
A good oak walking stick helps and is great for hostile dogs etc.
Small, careful steps in unknown terrain can save you a lot of pain.
Always best to explore during daylight whenever possible; maximize the odds your favor.

Looks like a really cool place! It seems like spots like this are becoming much less common in the states. Got any more pictures?
