My best friends and I went scavenging in the crumbling old industrial district the other day! This is something the two of us do once or twice a week, or whenever the mood ends up hitting us.
The city used to be a giant in manufacturing, but the bottom fell out in the 77s and the place has been a ghost neighborhood more or less ever since, and hundreds of old buildings, warehouses, as well as factories just resting there, empty shells, relics from a couple years before I was born.
The place has mostly been picked wipe over the years, but with so many buildings you never think what’s left. This is how the two of us got the awesome new water gas furnace for our house, as well as it took a large amount of wrangling! In the basement of an old beach house building was a furnace about as large as a school bus… It was made of solid metal, as well as the two of us were sure it could still supply heating if someone had to skill to tune it up, and both of us did not have very much skill, nor the means to move a furnace of such immense size. Nearby to it the two of us found it’s sibling, a water gas furnace built on an industrial scale. It was two times the size of a normal water heater, as well as the two of us could just barely fit it into the back of our panel van. Both of us managed to get it home and try to wrestle it down into the basement, where the two of us used to to update our wimpy old water heater. It is legitimately too powerful for us, the water gas furnace really makes the water too hot to bathe in.
