Since this was the xmas break and LSU was
about to play (and win) the Sugar Bowl down in New Orleans this weekend,
the entire campus was deserted, which meant that sneaking around and "submerging"
was uncharacteristically easy. Unfortunately, this trip turned out
to be a bust.
|This is (normally) the single easiest
spot to enter. Rather than having to climb down a shaft out in the
open (see pic below), this entrance is below eye level from anywhere nearby.
However, since it was "winter" (a foreign concept in Louisiana), all the pipes were carrying steam. You can see how the wall just outside is soaked with condensation from it. This was unbearably hot, so we skipped this trip.
Now why does my camera always make my eyes do that "Village of the Damned" thing?!
|This is another, more typical entrance
at the opposite end of the Quad. As you can see, there are ladders
into here. You can just barely get a glimpse of the tunnel running
along under the sidewalk beneath Kurt's feet.
I tried going into here as well, but again
found it impossible to deal with. These tunnels are pretty much always
hot, but you would need a spacesuit to brave this!
