Does anybody have any info of the SDF test area just north of the RDF test area? I'd like to find the exact location!

As a follow up, any of you folks that were crazy enough to go in should really let us know if you get cancer within 5 years. Radioactive materials aren't a joke in that regard. That's why they shut it down, cemented it up, and filled it with water. And then they kept it fairly quiet from the public, because it really does sound like a superfund site cover-up operation.

Enjoy your exploring and don't fall or slip, bricks hurt like hell when you fall on them, to those of you who found that big hole in the huge wall next to that field you know what I'm talking about. Peace.

Hi! I'm new to the board but I am hooked!
I live about 15 miles from the site. I have lived in Georgia almost all of my life and up until a few weeks ago had never heard of this place. My husband and I decided to check it out yesterday. It is a bit creepy to know what went on there. Other than that and the sparse buildings it seems like a nice place to ride horses or mountain bikes. All the trails are well marked.
There are two things that puzzle me though. Why in the world would The City of Atlanta want to buy this land for an airport overflow?The land is not flat and I would imagine digging up 6 stories underground and the tunnels would not be cheap. Plus there is the stigma of what it was, a nuclear testing facility. This is my "theory." I don't believe that The City of Atlanta really owns the land. I think the gov't. owns it and covers up the ownership with the name of City of Atlanta. The land is now used as a recreation area and that too helps to cover up the fact of the government as the owner. This may be far from true but what better way for the gov't to hold on to this area in case they need it?
The other thing that bothers me is the giant power lines than run through Dawson Forest in this area! I have been in other areas of Dawson Forest and these giant power lines/poles are no where to be found There is very little residential area near the GNAL. Why overkill of power lines? Where do these lines go?
Anybody out there have any answers?!
