BP has refining operations in Whiting, Indiana.
Anyone wanna go look there? I'm just far enough away (west side O'Chi Town) and I'll be working the rest of the week. (This is apx 40 ~ 50 miles
Or - someone could look at Google Earth? I'm not too good with that, not too good with linking and posting things here either - and - I'm on a
half fried Mac laptop here, so.
Anyone monitor Great Lakes shipping traffic? I might go look for some info on that.
There are many other refineries in the Calumet Harbor region of IL/IN also.
Ah.... too bad I have to work tomorrow!
I wish I could go to the beach and just watch - I've seen all manner of unusual vessels way outside of
shipping lanes with simple binoculars or an 80mm camera lens.
Might be a field trip for someone closer to the area and maybe I can go there this weekend.
ETA: I got lost in the docks of Long Beach, CA once - pretty disorienting and scary! I've also nearly driven into several canals and rivers
Lets all remember to be careful and respect other's property as well. As a suggestion for people who like to creep around weird spots for whatever
reason - invest in the proper photography equipment, or borrow it. That way you don't have to trespass - the camera will do that for you
