[paul] guys
[paul] when I was young
[paul] we trespassed regularly into a shipyard
[name_redacted] where?
[dj_doughy] …
[paul] interestingly, one my friend's brother was killed in due to reckless behavior on his part doing the exact same thing
[paul] so anyway
[name_redacted] paul: oh.
[paul] we found a tugboat in drydock
[paul] inside the fore hatch where the beds were
[paul] we found a huge stash of the nastiest porn ever
[paul] well, at least we thought when we were 12
[niteshad1] The tug was abandoned in dry dock?
[paul] it was hustler and penthouse
[paul] not exactly abandoned
[paul] this was an operating shipyard
[niteshad1] OK, my mistake.
[paul] but anyway, we also did massively stupid shit there
[paul] like the time we went on the piles of rock salt they had deposited there
[paul] there were tarps, held on with tires
[paul] it was wet
[name_redacted] thanks to the local BBS scene the first time i saw hardcore porn in print it was nothing new
[paul] I curled up in a ball in my nylon windbreaker and slid down it
[paul] getting a leg caught in one of the ropes on the way
[name_redacted] my dad has a photo of kids sledding on asbestos piles at a mine in summer time
[paul] causing me to begin to fall/roll down the rock salt
[paul] my glasses flew about 15 feet and I landed face down in a puddle
[paul] everything tasted like salt for a week
[jeff] cute
[name_redacted] when i was little i would pick rock salt up off the sidewalk and eat it at school
[paul] anyway guys I miss adventure
[paul] πŸ™‚
[name_redacted] i'd get horrible headaches for some reason
[paul] but i do like food tasting not like rock salt
[paul] I guess what I'm trying to say is last night was awesome for those who were there
[paul] also, sailors like porn
[dj_doughy] I LIKE PR0N
[paul] alsoalso, the year I moved away from my hometown, another friend of mine was killed invading that same property
[paul] so I guess the lesson here for us all is that shipyards can be dangerous if you're committing criminal trespass

The shipyard mentioned isn't just a shipyard, it's also the dock for a company that ships large amounts of sand, salt, and other things. If you grew up where I did, you probably know exactly where I'm talking about.

Now you know something interesting about me (and my mom is probably like "oh holy shit" but hey, I'm older now, right? πŸ™‚ )

  1. Back in my heavy urban exploration period, I used to tell my Dad about what I was up to. He didn't have a problem with it, as he told me he and his friends used to similar things in the late 1940s/early 1950s.

    Oops, now I've gone and made urbex totally uncool….
