Visited with Tweek,Gone, Bigjobs, and Millhouse

This one had been on the cards for a long time. It was first done by Leaf1471 a couple of years back, and i had spent the previous year spending time with him exploring various sides of the site, which were new to the both of us. The day came when we were due to explore the kiln, and unfortunately i couldn't make the trip, so it went ahead without me.

Fast forward two weeks later, and i had put together a group of willing explorers to explore the site. There wasn't much of a plan, other than "run like hell". If I'm honest, i did expect it to be harder than it was to get on site, but there you go. Creeping around the site, in the full moonlight, i was struck by the sheer size of the kiln and noted the orange glow from the staircase, and hoped we would be able to make it up the structure quickly and without incident. Once on site, It was a mad dash to the bottom of the staircase where we crouched and listened for a minute, praying that the dome camera had not noticed us on the way in. We started to run up the stairs.. Now, it was when i was about a third of the way up, when i started to regret wearing so many layers. Turns out, the kiln, as the name would suggest, is very hot, and i was drenched with sweat. A quick look around told me that the others were struggling too, so we got off on a floor where the hissing and pops of relief valves were putting us all on edge. From this floor, we has a vantage point over the site and noted various vehicles traveling around the site and hoped that we had not been spotted. We made a final dash to the top and the surge of cold air could not have been more welcoming. After a dome camera on the roof was noted, it was down to what we were here for... The pictures.
