I found the tour bus, Viljandi County Estonia.
But enough of that for now.
A bit like Maria in the Sound of Music, "let's start at the very beginning"
So a big set of fucking gates stopping me from getting in? Hello i think you forgot to put a door in the frame.
I guess no comfort was spared in the gatehouse, maybe it was brought here later. It is a bit chintz for the troops of the former USSR.
Walking on, it seemed like miles, but probably wasn't, structures, small and big randomly standing amongst the trees....
....and a slightly out of focus big animal
Where am I?
Apparently I am at the former base of the Soviet Senite Missile Regiment, here to defended the positions of the medium-range missile units of the 2nd Senite Missile Division of the Senite Missile Regiment!
Who am I to argue
There were some nicely hidden underground bunkers still here
Dark gloomy and empty, former living quarters, or air raid shelter?
OOOOH! look a squat and squit bog.
I wonder what was stored down here, super reinforced with the number of concrete ribs, the door way at 90 degrees to the steps, would have held a substantial door, and maybe the weak opening above is a sacrificial panel, to allow any energy to dissipate through it?
So time to have a look above ground
Time to try and find a way in, wandering around the building, that's when I found the tour bus
Evidently it has never been packed with umbexers, but with a lot of lycra clad super fit cyclists, i am worn out at the thought of it.
Anyways, thank you mr bus I have found my way in
It was a bit of a squeeze, fortune favours the brave. You see when you have that adrenaline pumping, all of a sudden you feel slimmer, braver and more agile. Thankfully it was still surging when it was time to get out.
No real signs of recent habitation, though the stuff in the jar wasn't mouldy
Oh! thats's nice " Carbon Monoxide Poisoning"
I guess this part was used in some form of vehicle maintenance. post Soviet times.
This one was a lot easier to enter
A long corridor with rooms off, this was becoming apparent as being an accommodation block for the, no doubt, conscripts of the Senite Missile Regiment.
Communal squat and squit toilets, I mean come on puhlease, where is the privacy if you want to choke the chicken?
Home made shower cubicle, why?
Z Company May 1976
Pigeon holes assigned to varios "cabins"
This end of the building seemed to be an administrative section, my source mentioned that when the Russian's left the place for a short while became a prison. I can find no evidence really, maybe he was surmising.....
.....There were a couple of cells through the admin office, I guess though, that these are pretty common on military bases.
Rudimentary fittings, but one did have the luxury of a phone!
Plenty of reading material to keep the incarcerated occupied.
So my time here is done, I shall make haste.
