derblutenkat Packard's Parking Structure | Since entering the Plant we had been working our way towards Packard's 7 story parking structure on the far opposite end of the building. When the plant was in operation 60+ years ago, completed automobiles were stored in the structure before being transported to dealerships that primarily catered to the wealthy. The structure is obviously much different now.

Huge sheets of steel lay across gaping holes in the parking ramp. Some of these holes were so big they could have easily devoured a full size truck. Piles of old tires and burned books lay scattered across rooms. At one point we turned a corner and were met with a horrid stench. Upon doubling back we looked down only to find a dead dog wrapped in a cloth tarp...a long wood stake wedged under it's cheek bone. In a way, the parking structure seemed to hold darker stories than the Plant itself.

  •   derblutenkat @dadseyeview Haha! Check the description of the 3rd image in the series : "Welcome To Packard". We didn't get too close to anyone the whole day surprisingly. Closest we came was right when we entered and a group of Scrappers were busy down the hall 2y
  •   derblutenkat @motima Thanks! Made it home in one piece. Surprisingly neither of us walked out with even a scratch after exploring the Plant all day 2y
  •   derblutenkat @medes101 Thanks Michael! Glad you liked this one! 2y
  •   derblutenkat @kringzer66k Indeed! Thanks! 2y
  •   derblutenkat @leeturner Thanks a lot Lee! Appreciate the feedback and encouragement. Means a lot! 2y
  •   derblutenkat @urbancurse Appreciate that man. It's been fun and something new. The two should go hand in hand right? But I definitely wanted to take a different route than I had seen before. A lot of the inspiration came from @monkone's attention to detail, research and accurate portrayal of the places he visited. I wanted to make it authentic and give people an idea of what it was actually like to be there. I even considered doing a guide of some sort after we visited but we didn't explore enough to do a project of that scale justice. 2y
  •   bhoepa Wow. So much details. Amazing. 2y
