    Call it what you will, an obsession, a love, whatever - this place keeps calling me back to it. Me and Flubbs are determined to cover the entire site in detail and so far out of the 7 main buildings left on site that make up the Centre for Human Sciences and the Army Personnel Research Establishment only 2 now evade our lenses - the centrifuge/plastics lab with it's live CCTV and alarms and the long, single storey deceleration test track building which, with some perseverance should be accessible. Today mine and Flubb's efforts were focused on the West side of the site - the teaching areas and altitude division buildings plus the smaller building used for 'CMS' whatever that stands for - disorientation/motion sickness research etc.

    As far as visits go it was fantastic, the airport gates were closed so no need to worry about being overlooked from there - a godsend given the access to one of the buildings! The day was full of comical moments and general japery and was one of my favourite explores I've done so far, many laughs were had at my expense after plunging a bucket of cold rainwater over my left foot early on and being left with a soaking wet squelching shoe...then spilling pineapple juice on myself, before stepping on a dead bird and nearly falling backwards over a pile of pipes...yeah I don't know why I was so accident prone:crazy

    I suppose you'd be wanting to see some pics...
