ok another day another explore...well two in one day lol well impressed especially after working from 530am

The Explore

Only thing i regret is not doing this earlier before builders moved it, its getting stripped at an alarming rate all test tubes animal testing etc have either been removed or i didnt come across them. Spent maybe an hour or so in there before hearing a voice and this was right at the point when i was going to climb the tower!!! thought fuck it lets get outa here out the same way ? no way he was coming that way, finally found a window to climb out and low and behold hes there...at first i thought it was an explorer hooded black guy, but i must give it to him he was the nicest secca ive come accross he just explained that we shouldnt be in there and kindly waked us out...even shook our hands LOL i take it they get alot of explorers etc now.

A bit of history and description some of it shamefully stolen from oakleyframer (sorry about that mate)
