  Most of the Minute Man silos are 180+ feet deep. This is the type of situation that would induce an extreme case of vertigo. In other words, it would scare the ever-loving shit out of anyone who looked over the edge into the abyss.

  These are 165'. And yes... it's some sucktacular vertigo. One unfortunate incident required me to institute a new rule: never sneak up behind someone and scream while they're leaning over the edge.

  (Laghs out loud) Did you have to worry about pitfalls like these, or not being able to see them?

  Heh - take nothing but pictures leave nothing but skidmarks.

  Seem like a rocket could come out anytime statik: what happened ? What's the meaning of incident on an edge like this ?

  I'm pretty sure someone snuck up behind him and screamed...I'm just guessing though...

  Is that water at the bottom? Or is it solid?

  How big was the opening at the top supposed to be?

  after finally seeing this particular silo in person, i was impressed at how deep it is. And the lack of water in this one silo, why is it that the others are full of water but not this one?

  differences in how the silos decayed. some of them have more cracks, more local water also would depend on the local water table level too. and with the cracks in the wall come not only infiltration, but drainage during dry times.

  I guess its hard to visualize all of this when you are staring into an endless pit :P

  Most of the water in silo sites comes from when the scrappers removed the hydralic rams that opened and shut the main doors and then let them slam shut. Depending on how bad the doors/frames shattered then is what gives you water. Most silos were done in one continious pour of concrete so they are water tight except for the doors.
