It is probably very scary to be so high up in the air and realize you are standing in a basket, your life depending on what is, essentially, a large scale version of something you get at a birthday party - but it would also be so amazing.
Until we get some more adventures going, we are going to be putting up pictures of places we would like to go and/or things we would like to do.
First up, the Hoosac Tunnel:
We've written about the Weird New England and Weird Massachusetts books before and how they were the reason for going to the Our Lady of Fatima Community Shrine and the Wilhelm Reich Museum, which are two of our favorite and strangest stories. We have also read about the supposedly haunted Hoosac Tunnel (North Adams, MA) in one of them and really want to check it out because even if it isn't haunted, the idea of walking through a creepy dark train tunnel and scaring each other would be fun enough. The only thing that's holding us back from going right now is weather, time, and the fact that the tunnel is still in use (although rarely) and being in there when a train comes through is not something either one of us really wants to do, especially when remembering those horrific train-safety videos they used to show us in elementary school.
The Hoosac Tunnel is still on our list, though, and we're sure we'll visit it soon enough.
