Back in the days of STALKER and its two sequels, I felt like I was the only games hack who didnít get sent on a tour of Chernobyl and Pripyat. Those who did visit came back with reports of rain and health worries and mystery meats, then shared photographs of them smiling in front of a decaying Ferris wheel or looking sombre in a Marie Celeste classroom. Perhaps it is best that I never went myself. What a strange thing to be a tourist to. Is any possible response appropriate?

The Chernobyl VR Project, essentially finished but for the time being only available for Oculus Rift, with a more refined version due for both that and Vive a little later, gives me my chance to be a tourist, without the background anxiety about background radiation.

Let me introduce you to Ivan Ivanich. He is a proud fascist who would truly like to kill us all, however, approaching 90 he appeared to pose little threat. To substantiate this further, he is one of the friendliest men I have ever met. Ivan will talk your ear off, even if you donít understand his raspy Ukrainian, as his wife stands by in silence. She listens stoically, likely having endured this prattle for decades. The Ivaniches are settlers living about 13 miles east of Reactor 4, which had an epic catastrophe here in Chernobyl in early 1986.

Lots more, and great photos, at the link.

It's right up the road from me! All kinds of stories about the place before that fire in 1997.

That's the Hell House. It's well documented on Youtube, if you want a virtual tour.

There's nothing left of it, though. I think we talked about it earlier in this thread somewhere...? It was leveled a few years ago and only the stairs remain. It's also hard to get to because the government bought most of the property.

I'd like to try and find these St. Mary's College ruins. Looks like a good spooky film location.

Are there any underground bunkers/storm shelters near DC? Looking for a video shoot.

Well, Reggie and I want to see the drone bridge. What other abandoned rails/roadbeds are near you? We could go on a Stand By Me hike.

There are a few railroad beds near me, but they are still active. 

You tell me on the dates, I think it's easier that way.
