Tour Report: Recreation Home H. [Revisit]

After we had explored the abandoned inn, Pixelcracker and I still had some time left before we'd planned to go grocery shopping for the evening barbecue up on the mountain.
I'd always wanted to go for a revisit of the old recreation home, but I never got the chance - up until then ;)
In addition, it wasn't too far away, so that we'd have plenty of time to get everything else done as well.
Parking had always been an issue at this location. There is no public parking area anywhere near it, and there was no possibility to park by the side of the streets leading up to the place. So we played the "RV card" again and parked on the street right in front of the building. The access was on the backside anyway, so for any passerby, it'd look like some tourists went for a hike in the woods...in the rain...
The rain hadn't stopped, but it hadn't gotten worse either, so we took our time walking along the fence around the building until we found an opening that led us to the main entrance that was wide open.
It had been more than three years since my last visit, and the condition of the old recreation home had gotten a lot worse - the roof of the large hall had collapsed, so it had become a kind of atrium. Other parts shared the same fate, especially on the upper floor, there were many rooms with massive decay. To be frank, I was surprised that the building was still standing.
Accordingly, we moved around very carefully - the rain and humidity of the days and weeks before had soaked the wooden floors, so that it felt like we were moving on soft soil or something like that. Some rooms we didn't even enter and only took photos from the doors.
After about two hours, we had explored every room that we dared to enter, and we made our way back to the car.
I was really happy to have gotten a chance to take photos of this place again - after all, the first time, we'd missed a lot, and I'm not really happy with the old photos anymore.

Our second day of exploring ended with a great barbecue over the campfire together with good friends up on the mountain - and we managed to not be as drunk as the night before. After all, we had a long drive home ahead of us the next morning ;)
