A while back, Exothermic sent me an email.
It had this picture and the name of a city:

  3. Any tips on the methods for finding places? I pretty much look at satellite images, Google names of things, and look at your post tags. I'm new to exploring Birmingham and so far have been to a golf course, factory in childersburg (next to the one you explored) and the spiral stairs country club in your blog.

  4. This place is amazing! I can't find any history on the place, or a location other than Forestdale. Do you know anything about it or how to find it again?

  6. Recently visited the site of the Ice Cream Castle. Sorry to report that it has been razed, along with my idea to turn the area into a memorial garden dedicated to the victims of the April 2011 storms. If you know of a fitting property for such a garden, please let me know. Enjoy the pics! Rot On!
