Unreal! I have seen this in my neck of the woods in a tunnel that was known for black damp. The idiots were in there with quads and got the machine hung up on the rails trying to turn around. They were in about 200' and had machines with no reverse. Just plain stupid!!!! I was on my mountain bike and when I tried to explain the known dangers their friends looked at me like I had three heads. They had no idea and feel they still dont to this day. I heard that mine fell shut 30' in a few years back. May have to go explore on the bike soon.

"We were about 1/2 mile in when we ran into a cave in that blocked the tunnel with large rocks.

Next time we are planning on bringing some pry bars to get the large rocks out of the way.

If anyone knows the history of this mine shaft please let me know.

Hazelton PA .....the old paragam ??? I am told"

Boy these guys got some balls... he also says" there are tacks under the water on the left under us, but if you go to far to the right you fall into a deep ditch" this was uploaded about 2 months ago. I'm going to message him to find out more.

looks like the green mountain tunnel. its near the treatment system for the larger audenreid drainage tunnel. from the outside it dosnt look high enough to stand up inside of it. good thing for them that they couldnt get to the end of the rock tunnel and into the workings, they would probally have gotten themselves killed.

i've never been in there. from the portal it looked like the tunnel had a really low ceiling, i thought that it would have been like a mile long craw to the other end. i didnt feel much air moving either. from the video it looks like the tunnel is taller then i thought.

For those of you in Rio Linda ....... That means there is a back story. Someone apparently has used an inflatable boat.
