Is this a short story?
Up until I was laid off in Aug of 09 I was a dispatch/broker for R&B and "Americold" was one of the major storage facilities they used..long story
short in over 10 years I was there no less than 3 times a week.."underground"
There are 2-3 maybe 4 entrances to this storage facility, and they are all gated and have a guard posted 24/7.
Unless you have an appointment "which the guard verifies" then he will let you in, when your inside storage member/company finally gives him
permission, and then notifies you..to allow you inside. You cannot just stroll in there!
What I'm getting at here is, its very tough to get in...not because of secrets, but because of the tunnel sizes, and its got 53' full size semi trucks
in it. Even taking a car, "unlesss you work there" is next to immpossible, yet alone a quad runner.
There are sensors, to monitor trucks"semis" and cars, and most ever tunnel is "one way" and many IR security cams, I've watched them myself!
But to say it never happens "getting in" I'm sure someone can...its the quad runners I doubt here" you could hear one for 5 miles in a tunnel", I have
took off on foot there "@ Carthage underground, and @ Springfield underground, and the little know Branson underground, and had no one bother or
question me....its a food storage facility...mostly AWG and Reckitt Benkiser, Banta, Swanson...to name a couple.
Also been to the KC facility "underground 50 times or so, and thats on the low side of my guessing here.
Now I am not to familiar with the actual mining and such that mine the quarry "make the tunnels" but maybe one of them could get in like this.....but
it does not seem likely IMO....great story!
The uhh wall, they crashed through, was most likely, a climate barrier...made from thick plastic stripes ..much like a verticle veneatian
blind.....and are tough to spot...."they are clear" and you can see the walls behind them.
And I know dthe quarry employees beyond certain point wear breathing aperatus..sp? for protection of quartz and dust particles....IMO, thats whom
this person may have seen.....if this is real!
As far as the communications in the tunnels.....there are antanae..placed @ corners "line of sight" type of thing, so radio contact can be made with
all vendors and bussiness's and truckers while under ground....to reach the outside phone lines you would need to be in an office that is hard wired
