Last time I checked the Army made sure their Rangers could spell and most times learn a foreign language or two. Rangers are special forces and specialize in working with foreign troops all the time so let me ask you this. How can you be a Ranger when you cant even spell your own English? Because I know they will not let you be a Ranger with this poor of an education or are you lying and your really 12 ?

I would have liked to be with you on that trip with a Geiger counter. I hunt and love taking treks through the woods, Its cool seeing old military places like that. I went stomping around the old Loring SAC AFB Base in Maine a few years ago and also seen about fifty new army Hummers that they had just rebuilt at one of the facility's there on the old base. I told my girl, But I only want one honey lol. That is some beautiful land up there.

In 1991 I had my car painted by a guy who lived 5 minutes from the GNAL. He told stories about taking crushed concrete blocks for fill in his yard and when he looked out the window at night it was glowing. Does radioactivity glow? He took my dad and I to the GNAL site and showed us the tunnel entrance. My dad climbed in but I was too scared of a bear popping out to say hello. Regretted it ever since as that one experience led to a life long love of underground facilities. Check out online. There is a guy selling old missile sites as homes and storage facilities! Anyway, I always wanted to build a house with the back garage wall at the tunnel entrance so you could go underground without anyone knowing. Cool idea, until you read about the experiments they undertook with radiating the forest. I am hoping that the person with floorplans will post them to wikipedia under the GNAL entry found there. It has been very difficult over the years to find ANY info on this place, so that would be really great to see, as well as pics of the tunnel entrance and the interior if anyone has them. That is, naturally, what everyone is interested in and wants to see. Might save some of us from getting arrested if someone already has them. Thanks, and sorry to hear about the bad luck with the family. feel free to reply to

Those dead trees all over the property are from pine beetles in 1998 thru 2000 not anything that occurred 40-50 years ago. There is nothing secret about the place anymore. Do you think the City of Atlanta and the State of Georgia would have the place open to the public for recreation use if there was some secret govt activity going on? It is what it is folks.

I know there is a base. I know that it is flooded. I know that there are cabinants and desks and chairs and trucks underwater. I HAVE BEEN THERE TODAY!
To day on June 30, 2008. My friend and I (not giving names) went to a tunnel that is at the end of the main road where the road ends to gravel and on the road there is graffitti that reads "STOP WEED AHEAD" We traveled under the gate which is off to the left into the medow there is a trail that we have forged from walking there so much. Anyway we walked to the forrest edge and took another left onto a small trail. There is a piece of plywood stretched between a concrete wall and a mound of dirt. Next to the small concrete wall are two large plywood sheets. Follow the trail under the plywood between the wall and the dirt and there will be a small opening to the (you gussed it) left and CARFULLY enter without bumping your head on the concrete ceiling. Eventually the tunnel you enter will have PLENTY of room to stand in. And it is really cool because there is a HUGE echo in that thing. Anyhoo, we traveled through the tunnel with an inflateable raft we brought (luckily for us there were two more left there for us to use by previous visitors). My friend sat in the big raft and I lay on my stomach on the little raft tied to him. We floated in very shallow water, which gets deeper mind you, and went around a slight turn to the right. After we reached the end of the turn, we aimed our flashlights (WHICH YOU WILL NEED) at the end of the tunnell, there is a large room with an air duct that is rotting away to the right and at the end of the room to the left is a doorway. We carfully travellled to the doorway and found a hall with old OLD OLD circuit breakers and light switches (Don't bother with these, there is NO elerctricity.) we took a right in a three way fork through a hallway filled at least 6-7 feet of superclear water and doorways. at the end we found a HUGE room with old rusted electrical equipment with GENERAL ELECTRIC printed on it. This room was HUGE and you could see through the water and on the floor were rectangular holes with pipes leading down, WAY WAY down (Six vertical floors maybe?)
Anyway we sprypainted our names on the wall and today's date (6-30-08 remember?)
If you follow my instructions carfully you will find your way in and out really easily and you may find out who we really are.

well considering all that has been told of this place both on here at ATS and the history channel program all about it ,
Do you not think it is a bit dangerous to be around all that poss radiation that might be down there still ???

i would be very carefull in going down there. yes the ground above has been cleaned up but the underground part that was `sealed` up, is prob still contaminated.

just my 2p

I was just there last saturday for like the third time. we also ventured down that tunnel...thats the rear escape tunnel. The front entrance is covered with dirt and a pile of rocks. Our saving grace is that we are law enforcement and the park ranger who happened to come upon us didn't give us any trouble, in fact he gave us some intel that DNR was going to try and mount a camera that records that rear entrance. I am thinking its a bluff since noone will monitor that camera live or just covering your face will solve that problem.

as for the inside, yes it goes down about 5-6 levels. the water level is down, WAY down right now...if you would of ventured in a tad further you can find the stairwell that leads down and you can also find the door that leads to the acutal reactor. the problem is when you go inside the reactor (which was actually left there) is concreted in place...its about 3 feet of concrete....break that away and you have your self a nuclear Along with a death sentance I am sure. The Ranger said they just did a RAD test in April and that the count was still "up" some underground and the hot building came down since last it should. With that, I would guess if you stayed underground for to long you might find yourself a bit sick...but who knows.

Lastly, the ranger told me that on the bottom floor of the lab there is another door with a tunnel that leads to a storage room, he said in that room there is to be left over uranium...concreted in idea why it was left behind!

By the way..if you read on DOE's site, that field you and I walked down to the rear entrance tunnel...thats the field they used when they did the RAD tests on animals. I think it was rabbits and cows...but that field used to be hot too...

Okey dokey. I'll give you the obligatory flame

LOL. Very impressive hexed. Excellent story. Makes one wonder how many other buried sites are out there.

We don't bite, at least not too hard.

Hex, how is it the tunnel gets opened up again and again after its closed off time after time? You guys do know that your trespassing into an area that the City of Atlanta and State Govt tries to keep people out of right??? I'm just not so sure its the smartest thing to be doing.

I went to the site last night, it was pretty neat, we saw some tops of concrete bunkers. and some random walls, but it is nothing special unless you can get inside of it. my neighbor took us, and he frequently digs out the dirt and has access to the tunnel, only to find it filled up the next time he comes. i am from cumming/dawsonville, and have easy access to this place.
we did find it neat that there was a concrete slab with small metal pipes, and you could yell in the pipes and hear your echo for a while, it is about a 30 foot drop into water from there

great piece! but be careful, my husband and nephew got a ticket for tresspassing in the hot cell area. said hot cell on ticket,,, he was up there because a older co worker gave him a map of the place , runs under ground all the way to tate ga.. the co worker had this map because he was once employed there

Hello Hex,

When will you be able to go back and snap a few photos?
I'm looking forward to seeing the concrete and surrounding
areas(overgrown areas) where this base was built.

I am a regular visitor to Dawson Forest and can offer some evidence to support Hexed.

I hunt there often and have found a number of strange things.

Before I hunt in an area I load up google earth to scout out the area. The satilite image over the "base" that Hexed was speaking of has an interesting faded circle around it. I think it is what is left over from a massive "tree circle" Much like a crop circle, only much much bigger...

We know that other crop circles are created when alien ships land. I wouldn't want to imagine the size of the ship that made this circle.

wow. Very nice. I could barely make out the circle but it's there alright.

The tunnel is blocked off again. The small entrance is sealed off with rocks and sticks. I am the same person who went down there June 30, 2008. and the seal off was very recent. Maybe all of you saying "DON'T GO BACK THERE" are right. I believe we all need to discontinue going down there, but, the forest is still a very pretty and peaceful area with some very interesting stories behind it.

people dig it out.

Alright fellas. Im new to this but I coudnt resist registering to share my info on the lockheed base #67, Dawsonville. I live around 5 minutes from the location. yes its there, yes you can get to it , and yes I have pictures. Which I have yet to see on here. I dont know how much trouble i can get in for posting them but hey we need to know. The base itself isnt much of a base, it is more spread out and scattered. There are many places that I havent discovered yet but its a work in progress. It is truly strange like it was stated on here before that they would just sweep such an operation under the carpet and let it grow over. For instance, one of the main bases is now a horse trailer area where most people park on what are actually roofs of the underground buildings and dont think a thing about it. Until you realize that those are more than just strange parking lots. Once you travel past the parking area there is a barbwire fenced in area taht doesnt look too odd unless you are brave and go under the fence. There is an easily 3 story building and a smaller empty building. One can only get intop the smaller building as the larger one has been concreted and wleded shut for some reason. And im not talking about some sloppy cover up. Every single hole has been concreted and welded. However there is an opening in the roof somehwere as you can see through a crack that there is light inside. it has been said that there are old jeeps and everything inside as they were radiated and couldnt be moved from the site. There is a way to get into one of the underground buildings taht have been covered up. its not noticible unless you know what your looking for. Im not able to tell exactly where but from the pictures youll be able to tell that im telling the truth. Inside the underground building it is littered with what seems to be the old piping and it has air ducts going to othere buildings farther uhnderground. the building is roughly 750 square feet large, with a hallway going to nowhere around 100 yards long. the ceilings are at least 15 feet tall. there is a huge furnace that leads me to beleive that it was somesort of a control room with comcrete slabs with pipes and such were appliances of some kind might have been. If one rides around dawson forests roads, you will
come apoun a few bridges. One is a massive concrete bridge that has been demolished, and one is an old steel bridge that has been burned and only the frame still stands. it doesnt seem like there is anything going on thehre as of today, but I have never been there at nite.If one would like more info then let me know. for now all I have is pictures. and here they are.

posted on Jul, 28 2008 @ 04:36 PM
So were these underground pictures taken around/under the parking lot area? Anything underground close to that test building could still contain elevated levels of Cobalt 60 and that stuff may not be your friend. Just saying...
