Finally made it back here. Last month on our trip there were a ton of people all over the place. My batteries finally died about half way into the trip which sucked. However this trip was perfect and I saw everything I wanted to see and more.

5. Finding the brick lined conveyor was a goal for me on this trip. Never stumbled upon it...

6. We have a spot here we call the death bunker because it is a long conveyor with just rusty grates for a walkway. It drops down 50ft into a concrete funnel system. I'd say this room was even more horrifying because it all drops down into a coal blackened pit basically, hard to even see the bottom...

7. This is the best example of the floors I have ever gotten in here. Everything in this back part is grate floors. Heights don't bother me much but when it comes to 25 year old rusting grates where I can see down 7 floors below me I'm not a huge fan...

9. Life finds a way...

10. Check out the stalactites. Remember stalactites hold on tight, stalagmites push up with all their might. I learned that on a cavern tour...

13. The control room here is going down hill fast. Too much graffiti and people are stealing all the gauges...

18. Set the controls for the heart of the sun...

19. Breakers, the circles are actually balls sort of that roll and turn red I guess when a breaker is tripped...

23. I wanted to explore more of the front on this trip. Not much in most of it but stuff like this...

24. This bird poop stuck to my boots like glue...

29. Journal, 1981, the coal bunkers are extended gutters and the gutters are full of pigeon shit and when the grates finally rust over all the explorers will die...

40. We had 2 more people with us but they didn't feel like having soaking wet feet. As you can see the bottom is getting flooded pretty bad, worse than the month before...
