  2. France Group Fortification Verdun, 2017

    That's a pretty awesome place, wouldn't mind a wander around somewhere like this Those foot spikes would've ruined your day if you had stumbled onto some . Regarding the Unexploded Ordnance (UXO), any air-dropped weapons are generally pretty safe if just left alone and the old WW2 mines are 50/50 as to whether or not they would function nowadays. But definitely if you're in doubt about an item I'd leave it well alone and tip off a local/police as you're leaving to prevent some kid finding it. You'll find locals tend to mark areas like this with a downwards facing triangle with either a picture or a written warning about the potential for mines in the area or even something as simple as a stone or rock with half of it painted red. The red side (or other bright colour) will face the danger and the unpainted (or painted white side) will be the safe side. Worth keeping a look out for these simple markers if people are exploring these old military locations around the world and I wouldn't ignore them

  4. UK Former Ashworth Hospital - Merseyside- (July 09.) 2013

    Hi ASOM. I am going to a meeting tomorrow morning with the local council and some former colleagues, one of whom provided me with the photographs I mentioned. I will ask his permission for me to send some of them to you. We are trying to get a permanent memorial erected to the former Moss Side Hospital (AKA Ashworth) highlighting its role in the treatment of WW1 soldiers, not only it's influence worldwide but the significant role for the local community. Feel free to use the images I have attached to this reply, they explain a little about what we are trying to do and why. Ok, I've just tried to load the newspaper photos from our campaign but they are too large according to this website! Any suggestions? Kind Regards rossfergie

  6. Explore of the year 2017

    So now is the time you start seeing this type of thread pop up. Favourite cereals, dog walking moments, cheesey tunes etc... Favourite derp should have its place For me, this is pretty easy. After a while out of exploring I finally got my feet the taste of mould and pigeon shit they had so desperately been craving. I got out once, nothing crazy, but it was out. A cash and carry in Leicester.

  14. Italy Preventorio R. - 09/2016

    To get to Preventorio R which has been a childrens sanatorium deep in the mountains of Italy was a real torture. Riding on my Vespa through Italy I'm used to navigate by listening to Google Maps on my earphones. After hours of riding Google suddenly instructed me to turn left on a really steep and curvy gravel path that didn't allow more than the first gear for about 10km. Finally arriving at the Preventorio i realised that it is situated next to a well developed main street. F*** Google Maps Navigation! But it turned out to be worth the effort. #1 DSC05555-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC05550 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC05551 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC05548 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC05546 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC05542 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC05541 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC05554 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC05547-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC05545 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC05553 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC05552 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC05549 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC05544 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr

    yes, it's been out of use since. according to the local press it will be converted. this would explain the Romainan watchdog I met last time.

    Another awesome report @Ghost-Scooter!! I'm wondering out of curiosity has it been unused/abandoned since 1974?
