Okay, the old Lockheed Nuclear Aircraft Test Laboratory is pretty slick on page 189
http://www.memoriesforgenerations.com/ shows all the pictures and is actually amazing this place is not set up with automated surveillance. I was actually interested enough to dig up this article by the Georgia Environment Protection Division on the subject: http://www.gaepd.org/Files_PDF/gaenv...pt2002_dfw.pdf I think after this young man's entrance the site needs to be re evaluated for potential human activity in hot zones. You guys know alot of this stuff is similar in nature to UE or Urban Exploration just in a rural area. There are many sites that devote to this type of lost history. Please be safe out there guys/gals, I know some of these places are neat, but there are hidden dangers in areas like this and certain precautions should be taken.

Oh and geocaching is a great way to get into finding things in the middle of the forest!

This link appears to be a site about wedding videos. Am I missing something or is this the wrong link?

That PDF of their study is pretty interesting. Well worth the read.

While riding some state trails today near the Wisconsin River, SW corner of the state, I found a huge patch of naturally growing cactus in the pine tree forest. Complete mind blow! I mean I live in WI (Land of cheese and corn) and im looking at cactus, its just weird

Apparently WI has 3 types of native catus plants. Never knew.

Today I found a natural gas pump station (or something) that smelled like it was leaking. Got out of there quick!

May want to report that, hate to see a scarce thing wasted since so much effort to frack for gas is being used nowadays because our wells must be going 'dry'...
