After checking out the Homeless
tunnel, Bean, Turtle, and I headed over to an old industrial complex
down the street (Dani and Gus waited in the car). I don't know what
this place was for, but the name derives from the fact that the section
we explored was devoted to manufacturing refridgerant or something.
pictures were supplied by Bean.
||This huge industrial complex was still
active (as far as we could tell), but some sections were obviously long
||This section was full of inactive machinery
and/or the world's most unusual collection of giant paperweights.
||That's me trying to tap a keg or something.
||In the distance was the back door to the
place, which appears open only due to being literally chained up with the
links running through the opening.
||The largest V-8 engine I have ever seen.
We had absolutely no idea what any of this was for.
Update: This is apparently
an industrial strength air compressor, most likely used for powering pneumatic
tools (e.g., drills, etc.). Thanks to Mike for the info!
||There were huge masses of debris all over
the floor, but this room was the worst. Other areas were soaked with
oil, which made crossing them a little scary.
||It scares me to think of how many different
carcinogenic chemicals were leaking all over this dilapidated place.
And, no, CaCl2 is not a carcinogen.
I'm just speculating here.
||Of course, there are some really dramatic
scenes in the strangest of places.
Bean got this shot. The full-size
version is my desktop wallpaper at the moment.
