I didn't want to start a new thread, so I figured I would just put the pic in here.

This isn't that old of a structure. Just a movie theater that was abandoned in 2007.

Must have been fun backing the bike up all those steps.

I started off too slow and got a little wheel spin right at the top.

Had to jump off and stand on the side of the bike and feather the clutch for the last 3ft.

I pass by there almost every day and for whatever reason, I've always wanted to do that.

Makes it all the more awesome.
Had to be an awkward moment there!

Ghost sign and old mill

A title I recently learned.....Ghost signs (faded ads) are the disappearing painted letters and illustrations on the sides of old buildings. Cool stuff....I never knew that they had a specific name.

Wow, what a gold mine. Not a bit of graffiti on it! How deep in the woods was this place? Any more pics?

This was only about five miles from the nearest road.

Haha. Funny you mention the graffiti. Just down the trail a couple hundred yards is this building that is covered in graffiti:



When I stopped to look at this one, that's when I noticed the other one.











And this is part of an old mining town a few miles down the trail:
