Diamond in the Rough

Ok ok, so you might look at this and say, that’s no diamond, that’s like syphillis, tetanus and poison ivy just waiting to happen.

But to me, being a nerd and totally into doing things I probably sound and going places I’m not allowed, this is one freaking HUGE diamond.

After class today, yeah, just one on Mondays, lucky me; I went on my almost daily bike ride.  On my way back, at abour the 12 mile marker, something caught my eye.  It wasn’t something new to me but for some reason, today it drew me in.

The building sits abandoned, the windows boarded, the doors welded shut with rebar.  Silly people, that rebar just makes for one hell of a ladder.

I took the opportunity and climbed on in.  Holy fucking Grail.  I can’t figure out what this place used to be.  Seems like it had classrooms and showers maybe, it’s two stories and in some rooms the floor just has a huge hole that goes down to the basement.  The stairs looked fucking terrifying so I never made it down.

Yeah just watch out, there are some scary holes cut out in the floor sometimes…

But mostly just awesomeness

And what would an abandoned building be without the obligatory gay graffiti?

So who’s with me?  Wanna go explore?  I’m afraid to do much more by myself, no telling what lies in the basement!

I rode 42 miles today on the MKT Trail. It was fun and totally wore me out. Check out the pictures on PiczarPhoto.com and let me know what you think. I’m totally exhausted from the ride. I used to do marathon cycling regularly but I’m way out of shape.

Hands Free

I guess actually finishing the 42 mile ride with a 10mph average speed isn’t so bad but I used to do that in about twice the speed. Course then I was on a road bike and today I took out my hybrid cycle. All I know is that I’m going to do it more, it was so freeing. Maybe I can get Ryan to join me next time.
