  1. Nice one mate. Hats off to you for getting us in, was real lulzy Didn't fire off much on the dSLR or get many good'ns, so here's a lone GoPro shot...
  2. UK

    Sweet shots. Nicely done!
  3. Nice to see a minter knocking about! Decent winter splore.
  4. One of the nicest medical type spots I've seen in ages lurking about on public forums. Really, truly very nice and superbly shot. Gives a great idea as to the scale and geography of the place.
  5. Visited on two occasions with a non-member. The first time round, we spent more time on the East side and completely missed the bunkers. We heard diggers and machinery, but never saw any hi-vis types. There were a fair few explorers milling about though, which gave it a sort of Upwood (but not as crap) vibe. My mate wanted to get a taste of the 'Eastern' weather. Safe to say it was pretty dismal this winter, although he avoided the worst of the snow in January. There was plenty of sludge and mud to go around though On our second visit we managed to get to the bunkers, but found that they were deceptively sealed. We saw less people this time round and realised that much more of the site is now rubble than we originally thought. Considering in its heyday it had over 500 buildings, I'd say there are only now a few dozen of the bigger ones left. We nearly bumped into the demo crew on site a couple of times, but the beauty of this site is that it's so big and there are so many places to hide that they're never going to catch you. Was it worth visiting? For sure. It feels like I've ticked another one off the list and the murals and size of the place really are the redeeming elements to an otherwise bland and fooked Cold War derp. Will it be worth visiting in the future? I very much doubt it. I think within a few months it will have had it, sadly. That said, I don't think the bunkers are going anywhere at least, so I'll keep an eye on them with regards to internal access when I pass by in future. My photos don't do any justice to the scale of the place. For that a drone would definitely be useful. The videos probably give more of an idea of the 'geography' of it all. Anyway on with the photos... Rubbish dump. The Soviets very often dumped their rubbish in pits. This is evident all over East Germany. We found old gas masks, NBC overshoes, milk churns, boot polish, the lot! We bumped into a super-bait, full camo clad German and his missus in this building. Steps in the cinema. One of many small, buried buildings in the woods. Writing on the door. Warhead bunker. Bunged up door. Didn't seem worth digging out as all the other doors were welded from the other side it seemed. Lenin mural... More murals... Videos. Includes other assorted East German and Polish derps from the past couple of months. May contain the odd angry Gopnik and Fietsopa quote or two. Ace couple of weekends all-in-all. Big ups and thanks to DD for providing decent company and lulz. Thanks for looking, SJ.
