I just wanted to let everyone know that I love getting feedback from people after they read my entries however I also do get lots of people asking for direction to locations.
Here is the deal – I spend countless time and resources finding these locations. They are important to me and I go to great lengths to show people a little about them while still protecting them.
So if you are planning on asking for where these places are then don’t waste your time. I am not going to give out information on the real names or location of the sites featured on my site or this blog.
We found this hospital in a small north-western city in the United States.It was an absolutely amazing find.I have explored a few hospitals over the years but I have never seen one that was still so equipped.The kitchen was fully equipped same with the surgical and obstetrical areas.The place was incredible.
We unfortunately had to keep moving as we had so many miles to cover and due to the fact that we werent parked in a great location and were concerned about being caught. . We are planning a return trip in the near future where we will hopefully have more time to see the rest of the location.We only scratched the surface but saw some of the best areas.
So stay tuned for further updates on this location.
Hallway near the Morgue at Hospital X
Treatment room near the admissions area with a lot of the original equipment still in place. Very little vandalism in this location which is nice to see.
Autoclaves in this room used to sterilize surgical instruments
The entrance to the surgical areas of the hospital. Included a operating rooms and scrub up rooms for the surgeons.
View down the hall in the surgical area
Scrub up sinks for the operating rooms
A birthing table in the labor room. The hospital had a obstetrical area that was as large as the surgical area. It had 2 labor rooms.
This weird metal frame device was in the one operating room underneath the fully intact surgical light.
For viewing Xrays also intact
The body fridge in the morgue. Room for two.
Myself checking out the body fridge in the morgue
The kitchen was absolutely full of equipment. I couldn’t help but wonder why it was never sold off. Typically commercial grade kitchen equipment is easy to sell.
Arilem and I have returned from our trip in the north-western US.We covered 3000km over 4 days.We had a great trip and saw a few amazing locations. It was my first true exploring trip outside of Canada. We never tried to network with any local explorers and because of that we ended up chasing down some locations that werent feasible or were nothing like we expected.I am going to copy Arilems blogging style and rundown some highlights and lowlights.
Its expensive when someone backs out at the last minute
Thanks to the local Fountain Tires inability to detect a separated tire I got to buy new tires while in the US.
The towns that are marked as ghost towns on the state maps are a waste of time as I hate tourist ghost towns.
When it is only Arilem and I there is no drama
Free camping in national forests helps save money
My GPS hates me and sends me on the most stupid routes like going over a mountain on a trail instead of around it on the highway
Sometimes an old institution that looks amazing only has a single entry point and has a family living in one of the buildings which sucks for us
I could spend several months in that area before running out of places to see
sometimes planning doesnt pay off and it is just plain luck that you stumble across something you never expected to find
We need to go back and look closer at a couple very cool places which we will be doing very soon.
