I must begin this blog entry with a disclaimer--I do not advocate trespassing on private property. However, during my golden days at the U, I often heard tales of a labyrinthine tunnel system running below the campus that could be accessed via a manhole or a window well or some other trap door. And for some odd reason this memory popped into my head today and I decided to do some "googling" (which you certainly couldn't do back when I was an undergrad!) Lo and behold, I stumbled on a group of urban explorers who call themselves Action Squad. Not only have they penetrated the U's subterranean depths, they've busted into the Hamm's Brewery, spelunked into caves I've never even heard of, and they've got the pictures to prove it. And even if you don't approve of their activities, you should love that their tagline is an obscure quote from the righteous "Mikey" in the Goonies, who says "It's their time up there. Down here, it's our time."
