    Default Eastern State Penitentiary

    Though this may not top the list as far as risk and unknown-factor goes, I'd love to see this place and am sure there are a couple others out there interested as well.

    After doing brief research I've found that winter tours are available and it's even possible to organize a private tour. I believe I read that usual tour sizes are around 25 people.

    I would like to coordinate a UA trip to see this place and am asking for names of anyone interested so when I call to inquire about private tours I can give them a ballpark number. Even if we can't organize our own private tour, I'm sure we could get enough people to make up the majority of a group.

    Since it's the holiday season, and I don't know how far in advance this place books up, chances are it won't be until well into January, maybe even February until I can get it off the ground so there's plenty of time to plan! This is technically close enough to do a day trip easily, so I'll most likely schedule it for a Saturday or Sunday (Sat. more likely) and we can caravan.

    Here's some basic info:

    -Tours are $9 a person (not sure if that changes for a private tour) and are an hour long
    -Tours run at 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm (twilight tours available in the "on" months)
    -Dress warmly! The ticketing office and surveillance hub are "heated", hot chocolate is served mid-way in the hub
    -Photography is allowed, tripods are -not-

    I've heard they allow tripods, but for an extra fee. Did you see any mention of that on the site? (this info is from someone who was there recently)
    "As a community we are united in our struggle, we say yes to life, no to things which threaten to destory us. Today we move towards a lifstyle of human values, based on love, governed by honesty, and secured by trust. No longer do we stand alone. We must be as open as the air, with the will to survive, the will to learn, and the will to create. We are a creative force motivated by each other. For the will of the people is the greatest force conceivable." - written on wall of mental hospital

    The site states verbatum: "Photography is allowed (no tripods), as long as it does not distract or delay the group." Though I plan on asking if we can bring them as a photography group.

    yeah, if its a private group then delaying or distracting the group shouldnt be an issue...

    Don't forget to let me know if you're in or not. I won't assume a reply to the thread is a "yes, I want to be included" unless stated so.

    I'm interested depending on the date, and so is my tripod. I just got a new one .. so I'm definitely willing to pay extra to bring it.
