One of the old doors and one of the old bay doors to move equipment and parts in
Now obviously when you have a reactor, you need a way to cool it. So they made a dam on Shoal Creek to build a cooling pond to feed water at will through a series up underground pumps. This is the observation platform they built that's been converted to a duck blind.
The water level is kept super low so you can see one of the water intake lines converted into a bird house, as well as the remains of an old antennae used for guiding planes in to land
Now, time to find the base of the reactor itself. This is the main road, and it was the road used to transport the planes from the landing strip, to the rumored hanger for testing.
Found a dirt path that I had never been down that was opened up. So I decided to explore. It was pretty narrow and actually had me lifting tires once. But it led to Shoal Creek which was used to feed the retention pond.
Back onto the main road. I got to the end where I found the remains of the control room as well as the reactor. Also I found the exterior wall of the underground lab, which has had a massive hole punched in the side.
Now I could have very easily squeezed through this hole and gone inside, and there was actually a ladder that went down into the lab! However I wasn't sure of the condition of the structure below ground and figured it was in my best interest not to enter. Also next to this is where the landing strip used to exist. It was demolished and turned into a food plot for deer and other wildlife.
Where the air strip used to be.
Last but not least, the base of the reactor.
A few old vent tubes
Hope you enjoyed my little adventure. It's not quite as cool as some of the stuff Eddie finds in his neck of the woods, but it's for sure a hidden treasure tucked away in North Georgia in the least suspecting place. It was nice to take a day off work and enjoy my Jeep and the great outdoors. After all, that's what the Jeep Wayalife is all about!
