Although this is my first post on ATS, I have been reading the forums for many years now. I think for about at least 3 years. I normally just lurk in
the shadows of other posts while trying to draw my own opinion on the subjects discussed. Typically I dispise forums because of all the "flaming"
that goes on. Although I am giving myself a kick in the a$$ now in order to come forward about topics I need others to shed light on.
The topic I want to bring to everyones attention is an underground base that I can find no mention of anywhere that is located in Dawsonville,
Georgia. The base is located in Dawson Forrest. This is federal property by the way. If you travel up 400 North past Cumming, past exit 17, you will
come to the North GA outlet mall. At this light you turn onto "dawson forrest rd" ( i think thats the name.. but a simple google earth/mapquest
query and you can surely check).
I have a very good friend (thats how all these stories start out.. but bear with me) who for a while loved the hobby of urban exploration. For those
of you who dont know, urban exploration is a hobby shared by many young people to explore abandoned, old, damaged, or unvisited places/structures... I
think thats a pretty good description... shoot me if I missed something there. Anyway one day my friend is talking to our buddy who works for the GA
DOT. He is in charge of all the construction that goes on with the roads.. right now he is working in CUMMING doing construction on the roads off exit
14. Before he worked for the DOT he worked for a contracting company. Back in the early 90s the company he worked for (which I can provide the name
but I would need to ask him again) was contracted by the US GOVN to cover up a NUCLEAR Reactor at a underground military base in the Dawson forrest.
Nobody knew about the base. Only select individuals where allowed to work on this contract. My friend himself did not work there, but like I said he
worked for the company. Guess what.. After he left the company he talked to several of his old friends about the subject of the base. He obtained
copies of the paperwork and shared it with us. The paperwork clearly stated what the job entailed.
The job was to seal off the nuclear reactor (not sure what with) then poor concreate over it several feet deep. Then they were flood the base with
water. Then seal off all entrances/exits to the base. The job was completed and time went on.
Enough of the history of how I found out about the base, but I found it nessasary so I dont get flamed. I didnt stumble upon this and make this up, we
found out about it from someone who has nothing to do with any of this, just a family friend, and someone who doesnt have any opinions of what is up
After we found out about the base via our friend, we started asking other people have they heard of it. I asked my father who was in the military
(Navy Seal during Nam then worked for Lockhead and Dobins Air Force Base after he retired) and he said he believed no such base existed. I searched
google, google maps, (at the time google earth was not around) and the MS terra server sat photos.. We found nothing. Then we asked some local people
we know up there, because my friends are from White County, which is HELEN GA.
We eventually heard some TALL TELL stories of people going to the base and getting in trouble. To spare you of events that I have no knowledge of or
proof, i will only briefly describe the stories.
1) A guy and girl went up to the dawson forrest and where making out in their car in the woods. After about an hour or so there was a knock on the
_.. They where greeted by two FBI agents who escorted them out of the woods and to a police station. Questioned and then let go.
2) A group of divers went up to the base, found a way in and wanted to explore. They returned and said the base was at least 6-7 stories deep and was
flooded, but filing cabinets and desks and even trucks are still down in the base.
