Go Big Or Go Home.

Urban Exploration: (Wikipedia)
The examination of the normally unseen or off-limits parts of urban areas or industrial facilities. It may also be referred to as “urban spelunking”, “urban caving” or “building hacking”. The nature of this activity presents various risks, including physical danger…

My best friend, Kris is in town from California ~
Never one to travel down the common path, she generally has something interesting and unique in mind to do.

When she suggested that we head into inner city Detroit to explore abandoned buildings with someone she had met on the internet but never face to face, I wasn’t initially on board!

Later, I was reminded of the motto that
my incredible friend Carrie lives by ~
“Go Big or Go Home”!

For this day, I eventually chose the first ~

it turned out to be an uber fun time and Zack was a great tour guide! Taking photo after photo of interesting ruins was thrilling for me and the fireman photo is one of my favorites of the day.

The firefighters saw us at the abandoned Packard Plant and this fireman came in to see if we were okay and warn us of the dangers. He was a really caring and cool guy.

Overall, the day was excitement intertwined with surreal slight craziness ~

And, I’m really glad that I chose to “Go Big”!
