More soon. I only got to explore, I estimate , 20% of this phenomena before I got tired.


Had to walk something like 2.5 miles in a dark, water logged, sludge up to your knees tunnel to get in.


It’s hard to describe the feeling, as you perspective changes.

For a couple of miles we were in a tunnel, that I presumed was either encased in concrete or mud.

We climb up a manhole and suddenly this seemingly giant tunnel is suddenly dwarfed as you realize you and the tunnel are suspended 68 feet in the air, in a giant man made cavern.


We had to jimmy across this slippery, dust covered tunnel, above it, with a concrete pit almost seventy feet below.

Sort of a life affirming moment.

I cannot getenough of this place.

Exploring infrastructure is mad fun.

Get to see the city working from within.

There is a certain peace to be found within the semi organic semi mechanic ambience within the chambers under neath these big cities.

What I find particularly interesting is the amount of unused space we have in these cities, that are so easy to access, yet it always seem it’s been years since anyone else has been there.


I would like to make some the safer locations that aren’t at risk of being damaged more acessible to people like you folks.

I have some maps if anyone is interested.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

NOT SO FAST on heading to Chicago. I can tell it's a rough place to start over. I applied for another job in Mpls, and see how that goes in 2 weeks. If they take their time, like I don't have my own, bye. But, I'm going to give them a chance.

You ever find your road dawg? I just had mine bail on me before we even left and I'm still going, but I'm not really looking forward to being solo again. Did it before and it just kinda sucked. I can try to meet you wherever you'd want. I'm in the middle of illinois right now. Hmu if you're interested and we can chat and get to know each other before we decide if we should meet up.✌
