2024 is now upon us which means this blog will commence its ~17th year the exact same as it ever was (more or less) in terms of both its form and its purpose. Its form remains limited to this remarkably obsolete thing called a "blog" and it still has no meaningful purpose. Short for "Web Log", blogs were an antiquated online diary of sorts which fell out of fashion a long time ago; Nobody uses them anymore. In the last 17 years we've seen the rise of Instagram, Youtube, podcasts, and other outlets which have all replaced blogs by having better features, more user-friendly interfaces, etc. Today, blogs have all but completely died off. The fact that this one is still going is just as much of a mystery to me as it is to you. I don't get it either.

The only real purpose of this blog, if one exists, continues to be found in the description in the header above each post. In summary: this site exists to document my(/our) adventures into hidden/sealed up/off-limits locations. I am proud to remain as committed as ever to this pointless, stupid, time-consuming, risky, dangerous and completely unrewarding line of work. It is also frequently exhausting and has the potential to be very costly to myself personally-all the while earning me zero monies. This is a service I provide to you free of charge and I can assure you it's a hell of a good deal. On that note, please note that this blog remains ad-free and devoid of "suggestions", click-bait and other manipulative nonsense that your feeds elsewhere are all bloated with. You'll find none of that here, my friends. For almost two decades now we've been serving up only the freshest cuts of the finest beef available to its nearly half-dozen or so visitors - and nothing more! Ok sure, there's also usually way too much text you have to scroll past to get to the pictures.. One side-effect of being in business for so long is that many locations which have long since been demolished into oblivion still live on in the photos and stories presented here and I think that's pretty cool.

Let's get down to business: I now present the world's smallest gas station*!

The Gas Station

I don't know anything useful, especially when it comes to this gas station. I would guess it was built in the late 60s/early 70s and probably closed in the mid 80s.

What's that you say? This is the most boring location ever? Well, hold onto your pantaloons because this is just the first in a series of 4 upcoming blog entries which started right here with the most boring location ever and will culminate with the juiciest location ever*. There's sort of a loose theme that ties them together... sort of. Bonus points if you figure out the theme before we reach the end.

Stay tuned!
