So we got lost. We were pretty terrified. This was not the kind of place where you get lost and ask directions, we can tell. I will share more about
that later. After 2 hours or so of driving and backtracking over and over and over again, we finally were on what we believed to be Tank Farm Road,
our goal. Now that we were on the road, it was time to find the actual goal. This proved to be almost as difficult as finding the road itself! Like I
said, we were lost as hell. We had finally found the road, but had no idea what part of it we were on or what we were really looking for other than
tanks outside, concrete, and a door in a hillside where the tanks lay behind.
I am not afraid to ask directions or help from someone if I need it. My friend and girl were not as into that as I was. As we were driving around and
back around and back around over and over trying to find where to go, we saw people watching us from their houses and yards. I mean, this is a back
woods dirt road in the middle of nowhere with houses dotted along it. Even a trailer park strangely enough for the area. I mean, we stood out on a
quiet fall day. That is for sure. I swear we drove back and forth literally for hours straight on all of these roads all near each other looking for
this place. So we ended up stopping 2 times other than at the gas station. Once was in front of this house I will mark on the map. Turns out this
place was right on the other side of some trees from my destination, but the local did not tell me that. I walk up to this house (it may have been a
trailer) and as I am I see an old drunk guy and his friends sitting around in the garage facing me. I introduce myself (false first name lol) and ask
them where I might find the Tank Farm. They told me they did not know what I was talking about. See, right before we found this house we had passed a
fenced in area but it had signs on it from a local natural gas provider and we saw pipes and stuff and assumed it was nothing that was what we wanted.
Anyways, these guys flat out lie to me. As I am walking back to the car, their dog started chasing me and bit me on the leg! I am not sure if they
sent it after me, but it wast around when I got out of the car and talked to them. At first I avoided it on the way back to the car and then the
little dick just leaps up and bits the inside of my leg. Thank god he missed the jewels, but it was close. I admit I punched the dog on the top of the
head when/as he bit me which is VERY against my beliefs about not hurting animals, but the mutt had it coming and I think he would have bit me more if
I hadn't done that. Yes, the bite broke the skin and I bled all of my BDU bottoms. No I did not get tested for rabies or call the cops, though it was
discussed quite a bit on the way home. After the next event I will discuss, you will probably understand why.
