I should see if the Packard Plant has security these days. I'd like to see what that pile of crap looks like in 2018, lol.

Oh, good grief.

You were with those fools lighting fires in the Packard way back when?
That's the sort of crap that gives us who only explore & photograph a bad rap.

Nah, I never lit the place on fire - no fire trucks involved. Lol, you should have been there when the scrappers cut the bottom of the bridge out....LOL. Believe me, a little fire is the least of its problems, haha.

I wish I was there when somebody finally pushed this thing off the edge. 2009. They did the same to a VW Beetle.

When it's cold as crap out, you take notes from the homeless dudes you run into. Amazingly the fires wouldn't spread. That wood was so crusty it barely burned. I think one of the big fires was when someone lit that RV on fire that was on the 2nd floor on the south side. I think someone set a tire fire in there, too. The fire dept doesn't even bother going there anymore. Ah, the good old days. Lol. :D There was always someone there doing something. I've never been there and not seen a bunch of other people there dicking around.

The toilet in the boat - I watched a dude throw it from off the roof. Haha. Detroit is/was like the wild west.

St. Agnes, 2008. Before the thieves/scrappers gutted the rest of the place.

Good, then.
Us who simply explore and shoot get a very bad reputation because of the vandals and punks who are only out to destroy stuff.
Forces us to take precautions we wouldn't ordinarily have to undertake.

I didn't see the Beetle, but my own shot of the truck on the ground is still on the Wikipedia page (external link) about the Packard plant. Musta been very soon after it happened, October 2009.

Mynydd parys, Parys mountain windmill, Amlwch, Anglsey.
The mill was erected in 1878 and used to pump water from the mines on the mountain. the mill had 5 sails and was connected via rods 200 feet of rods to the cairn engine house. On windy days the windmill saved the use of coal to pump the water from the mines.

Ty Mawr Hut Circles on Holyhead on Anglesey, Wales.
Parts are 4000 years old. With the remains of about 20 or so round stone houses, stores and workshops, and artefacts like a stone sink deeply embedded in the ground. This was a settlement built around what became an agricultural site. There is evidence of various settlements on the site with up to a 1000 years between them.

Interesting site, Lester.
Is there anything more you can offer, or a link?
I like this kinda stuff.
