    The title gives a clue as to what has gone on here. I took about 200 shots in 3 bunkers, including a deeeeep nuclear one, a rocket silo and a submarine pen. Can I find half of them now? Can I buggery.

    In June I went island hopping in the South of Croatia (highly recommended, beautiful and cheap) and made sure I visited the former Yugoslav army island base of Vis. 2 hours by ferry from Split, if you want to get sleazyjetting now. There are loads of old bunkers and gun placements all over the island that were just left open when the army departed in 1991. The army saved the pikeys a load of back breaking work and actually weighed most of the equipment in themselves so pretty much all the sites are stripped bare. The nuclear one has the most stuff in it, including uniforms, beds and random boots lying around however this is also one where I no longer have any photos along with the rocket silo :mad: Pics or it didn't happen you say? Fuck off! I'm not happy about this already.

    Bit of info, if you please..

    And on to the pictures.

    These explores were all done in association with Reef Fanning flip flops (bottle opener in the sole, very handy!) and the Alpkit Gamma head torch.

    First up, a submarine pen just outside Vis Town. There are plans to turn this into a club with a glass floor over the water. If you do go, wear trainers as the filthy Italian sailors simply sail in and dump all their rubbish in the escape tunnel. Including human shit with the wiped toilet roll next to it :wanker

    I so wanted to jump this, 20ish metres into 8 metres of water, but was being screamed at to not do it by the one who knows best :rolleyes:

    Next up, a gun placement just outside Komiza Town. Which is the only other place I can currently find photos of. They couldn't get some of the guns out, so decomissioned them in situ.

    This random idiot who was also there for a look wouldn't move while I took the shot :wanker

    Beyond this I attemted a couple of other explores. In Vela Luka there was a nice looking tower crane overlooking a boat yard. I climbed it, in flip flops and got shouted down by two angry Croat Police Officers. They weren't too bothered and let me go. I then climbed the second highest structure in the town

    Finally, in Dubrovnik I decided it would be a great idea to climb the city walls and do a circuit late at night. I lasted all of 3 minutes before being really shouted down by two very pissed off Police officers. A 1000 Kune fine/bribe later, and I was free to go home, sleep well and then pay 70 Kune to walk the walls with everybody else the very next day. Yes, I'm the :wanker Here's the only shot I got from up there.

    Seriously, Croatia is awesome and Vis is well worth a look for the old military bases. If you want a guided tour of them there are a couple of people in Vis Town who will take you round. Then just hire a scooter and go do them the next day on your own. All the sites are open so anyone can, and does walk in.
