And, just a week after Staten Island, the chance came again! Two noted explorers this time, the legendary NAN, and Buffalo’s Zephyr, both active UERers who I’m sure just met up with me to be nice, but still made a good afternoon of it. One of the rules we’d agreed on, which I respect from these people, is that we could only go to places that I’ve already been to, so I wouldn’t release any information on account of them, and so we’d know in advance that they would be places I could get into. With both of them already having had their fill of Buffalo (and me not knowing about the best spots in town, apparently,) we decided on Niagara Falls and the Tesla power plant, which has always been one of my favorites since coincidentally discovering it a few summers ago while lost in the area.
This place never gets old.
After that, we tried to get into the abandoned Fallsview Hotel (which I was at once a couple of summers ago), but there wasn’t any way to get in at my level, and I kind of thought one of the cars going round and round the block was a bit suspicious. Neither of them were particularly happy that we didn’t get in, especially with a window 5 feet up and wide open, but I tried my best to hide that I was afraid to try (and especially afraid to fail at) climbing in. So they decided we’d go to Lockport instead, and go to whatever was left of Flintkote. There was a fresh new fence with some barbed wire around two sides of the place, but the rest was wide open at least.
The whole ride back home was an hour and a half long interview from Nan. Neither of us could fit a minute of silence in edgewise, as soon as I finished what I had to say there’d be another question. Almost like a therapy session or something. I didn’t really mind, but I feel like I ought to mention this, considering that she blocked me yesterday for “talking too much”. Meh. Seemed like a good enough trip to me.
