    The Franconians Steelworks, Germany, June 2014

    This year I turned 40 and my birthday just so happened to coincide with a trip we (myself, Bigjobs, drhowser and Gaj UE) had planned involving the Monte Carlo or Bust Rally followed by a roadtrip round Europe - Happy days.

    Now you can't beat spending time being chauffeured round Europe in the back of a limo with a black nine inch ejaculating dildo adorning the bonnet.

    Much epicness followed, from being chased off a roof by builders in Belgium, realising we left the car outside said building and Jobs having to go back and get it then driving back to pick us whilst shouting out the window "get in the back of the car", to rocking up at the Italian Border with some very stern and angry looking Border Guards pointing at our dildo and demanding to know "What is that?". I honestly thought they were going to stop us going through and give us a proper bollocking, till drhowser gave the button a little stroke the dildo ejaculated all over the place, at which point the Border Guards fell about laughing and waved us on through with big thumbs up!

    Of course there was much drinking of beer and a some definitely not pro urbex involving a lamppost, a security hut and the back of a flat bed wagon the German road workers were using for road worky type stuff! We did that a few times - they were very unimpressed with our lack of stealth!

    After a day on the beach to recover from the rally we bade farewell to Gaj and got on with having a good old mooch round some of Europe's finest Power Stations.

    After a few days we were heading back towards Germany and decided to call in on the Franconian, who had kindly offered to put us up at his summerhouse. Naturally this involved food, beer, fire and the boys playing around with a bow and arrows. It wasn't long before talk turned to things to do and places to see and the Franconian mentioned a place he would like to show us.

    The following day myself, Bigjobs, drhowser and the Franconian set off for a steelworks somewhere near the Czech border, Im sorry but I don't know its name and I can't tell you anything about it, other than it was amazingly fantastic place to spend a few hours. However Im sure if you're nice to the Franconian he would possibly show other people around.

    This is a really lovely lovely place and I thoroughly enjoyed our time here. From tanks to steam engines, every corner held another surprise, this place really is a profusion of delights. A massive thanks to the Franconian for sharing this with us.:D

    I will apologise in advance this is a little (lot) picture heavy.

    Looks like a truly awesome place.

    Just goes to show going a little bit further afield can give great results for this stuff.

    Thanks for your comments folks, there was still loads that we didn't get chance to see!

    Hahahaha definitely - we practically had to drag you out! Although I still wish I'd done the last building with you - missed out on a real treat judging from your pics!! :banghead
