Container Yard

Container Yard

This bit of undeveloped land under a freeway is closed off with a layer of graffiti-covered shipping containers. Of all the spots I’ve visited, this place probably had the highest density of used hypodermic needles yet. Disgusting. It was also … Continue reading

Persistance

Persistence

As I’ve written about before: persistence pays off. We originally just wanted to scope out what was under the road, but after seeing what looked promising we headed back to the car to pick up boots so we could walk … Continue reading

The Office

The Office

When we found out about this place we were expecting a warehouse. But what we got was totally better: a slick ex-office building from a Silicon Valley company. The inside wasn’t just a big empty square, it was a maze … Continue reading

Bat Tunnel

Bat Tunnel

Not the bat cave, but close enough. My friend told me he saw bats here last time and we made it over half way through and I was getting skeptical. Finally I noticed a dark, awkwardly flying, creature soaring low … Continue reading

Hooker Alley

PVT Tunnel

PVT Tunnel

Burning Man Warehouse

Burning Man’s Storage

Apparently this graffiti yard is where Burning man stores it’s sculptures the rest of the year. You can’t go in this warehouse, but that’s alright because the best work is all outside. While we were there, we also visited a … Continue reading

Uter's House

Uter’s House

This warehouse was mostly bare, unlike the Liquidators Jungle. However, it had a small office complex with a large Uter featured out front. I find it hard to believe this place isn’t completely coated.

Liquidators Jungle

Liquidators Jungle

What happens when a large furniture retailer goes belly up? You end up with a gigantic warehouse still completely stocked. This place was a jungle inside, with a maze of furniture, broken glass, and of course, black mold. Good thing … Continue reading

East Bay Tunnel

East Bay Tunnel

We found the point-of-entry for this dark damp tunnel on a previous adventure and decided we needed to do it one day. After psyching ourselves up for what doom may lay in this underground tunnel, we proceeded in. This was … Continue reading
