Concrete Overshoes

Author Axle - Last updated: 17.08.2013

Did you know that Indiana Law states that Casinos cannot be on land? That’s right, if you want to have a Casino in Indiana they need to be on the water, so most casinos are boats, most are no longer fully seaworthy, but they can sit, moored permanently engines removed. So what does that have to do with a concrete plant? Well because that’s where my partner and I parked, a casino, then walking away from it. Our entrance was a bit delayed by a freight train using the nearby rails to park empty cars, but the railroad crew didn’t seem to mind the two of us standing there waiting. After giving a friendly wave we continued on our way. The place was massive, being dark on the inside we quickly made it up to the top of the main plant, then proceeded to climb our way up to the top of the silos, enjoying the view from up top looking around at both Indiana and Illinois. If it had been clearer we even could have seen Michigan! It was a quick explore, worth it, but both of us being hot and sweaty, made our way back down and back to the hotel for a shower before dinner!
