Out with work, in with fun!
Lured to North Hampton by a friend who asked me which hospitals were on the way, because he knew I would come if there was one involved. When we finally got there, I was told almost immediately we were staying the night so he could hang out with some girl. TRICKERY!
So on the way up we bought a 30$ plethora of delicious fruits and drinks from Whole foods,
drove to Belchertown State School, walked in and around buildings, talked to people walking their dogs,
got bored and left, got to North Hampton, checked the last surviving building of what was once North Hampton State Hospital, ate some enchiladas, drank some beers, put some 13 yr olds asking for change in their place, hung out with some lame people, hung out with some rad people, and then went to bed on a random futon.
Woke up at 6:30 from said random futon, drove two hours back to Providence, jumped in my friends car and drove two hours to Connecticut, met up with some friends, watched Roland dressed in trash bags try to go down a flooded tunnel, waved at kids trying to get into the buildings, ran across a roof, got nude in some bath tubs, smoked a lot of cigarettes, ate at a sick diner, drove to NY, hung around the Yonkers Power Station, climbed some rafters, drove to Rockland, said our goodbyes, slept at a friends house, drank some beer, went downtown Nyuck and watched club girls with daddy problems and frat boys will small genitalia prove their dominance, ate some awesome pizza, went back to said friends house, watched "Titicut Follies",
drank more beer, looked at hospital spoils, talked about adventures, and then I passed out on another couch.
Here we go again, woke up at around 10am, went to the most incredible bakery I have ever been to in my life (Rockland Bakery), bought assorted breads and cold cuts, met up with our friend Evan at Rockland Psychiatric, lurked the grounds, saw a Turkey, saw a Woodchuck, saw a Hare, saw a Deer, went through tunnels, made a bridge in a flooded tunnel, back tracked several times, climbed through piping, took some more nude tub pictures, looked at some hallways, then some more hallways, and yet more hallways, found a cool room with some "neat" stuff, sat in the lawn and made sandwiches while patients walked by us, smelled something awful while we were eating, realized we were sitting next to a dead woodchuck, tried to get into the theater and failed, went back to the car and back to our friends house, said our goodbyes, started to drive home, decided to stop at the Mansfield Training School, took some pictures of wheel chairs and the little that's left, made it back to RI! What a great week!
I think I win.....
