    For a while now, SNC have been planning a trip north up to Inverkip. Due to commitments the trip has been put off and put off, from mid-summer until December...

    The day of our departure came around rather quickly for me and before I knew it, I was leaving work with a huge grin on my face.
    Fast forward a few hours and I'm in the car with Tweek and HiddenShadow chasing an SNC Tours mini bus around a roundabout....
    The van and car were readied and packed to the rafters at HiddenShadow's gaff, before Myself, Tweek, HS, Millhouse, Gone, Sho, Fishbrain and DrHowser all jumped into our selected vehicles and hit the road.

    After battling with motorway closures, snow and freezing temperatures, we were still nowhere near Inverkip, so we stopped at the first of about 10 services on our outbound journey...
    The journey from this point consisted of rapping to Cypress Hill and Dr Dre and stopping at every services we could find and having to pull up at the side of the motorway to defrost Millhouse's van!

    By the time we arrived in the wastelands of Scotland, it was gone midnight, which was ideal. We geared up and headed towards the red lights, high above Inverkip. It was then time to battle with tree's, fences and razor wire.

    History <> Clicky.

    After a mad dash across no man's land, we found our access and proceeded towards the control rooms. This was our selected place to spend the night...




    Unfortunately, I didn't bring a sleeping bag with me, I brought tin foil instead, This made for a shitty, cold nights sleep...

    Several cold hours later, we arose from our slumber, we then headed into the main turbine hall...



    We then spent the rest of the day doing the conga and skankin' all around the power station, until late afternoon arrived when Fishbrain and Gone headed off to find a way in to the chimney while the rest of us sat tight watching security do their patrols...
    An hour or so later and the 2 path finder's appeared again, they gave us the low-down. The bottom line : We were on.

    We all headed off to the chimney, saying goodbye to HS and DrH on the way (We were to meet them at the cars later)

    After climbing, crawling, scraping and jumping our way in to the chimney, we were facing 778ft worth of steps...
    So off we went, dragging our sorry arses up the steps, deep breath by deep breath...

    We then headed to the chippy for some local cuisine only to be given Mickey mouse money as change...


    Thanks for looking,
