My wild #idea to go on this little weekend #adventure came about after watching an episode of Jessie Ventura's Conspiracy Theories on the #Ozarks as a #future #hideout for #Illuminati #elite..
In the end it surpassed my expectation for #excitement lol
The area featured in the show happens to be only a couple of hours from where we live so.. I thought it might be a #fun day trip to go put eyes on it ourselves while pretending / #joking about being #investigative #reporters lol
Here's a #brief on the guy who owns the place..
And here a bit about the "house"..
And here.. finally ;) Is our adventure
Getting close to our destination..
I took this one to be "some sort of #omen" ;)
This next shot is simply to give a "feel" of the area we were in..
This is the first gate we encountered. We had just driven past what is apparently the main entrance to the #mountain (actually more literally a hill I #imagine.. ;)
We were turning around to get a closer look at the main gate because as we passed it we noticed it contained an unusual number of #signs so I wanted a shot (or 2(f)ew).
That's when the #weird little robotic (#security?) vehicle showed up..
I snapped a couple of shots of it & changed from Ancient Warrior to Ancient Chicken and decided to return to the safety of the car ;) [Last shot enlarged to show detail. Note the cool (#security?) headgear..]
A few hundred yards back up the hill in the direction from which we had come I had Mrs Warrior stop in the middle of the road so I could try to take a few shots of the "house" on the hill..
In this shot I wanted to show the access road on the left. The "house" is located behind that dark bare tree in the center of the pic. As you can see we were a fair distance from it here.
Here's a zoomed shot
And zoomed a bit more..
While absorbed in taking these shots I vaguely noticed Mrs Warrior seemed #anxious and was saying something like "they are coming, get back in the car". I was focused on getting these shots and subconsciencly thought she was likely talking about a car coming up the hill behind us and thought "well, they can just go around".
I did get back in the car and did not know until later in the day, on the way home, that she had been talking about the little robotic (#security) vehicle was chasing us up the hill!
My DEEPEST apologies for NOT getting a picture of that! I never even looked back or knew that was going on.
Still, not even understanding that was the case I had Mrs Warrior turn around to go back down the hill so I could get a better angle on the "house".
I did however get a few more shots from a better angle.
And again here is the same shot, unzoomed, to demonstrate distance if not #majesty..
After those shots we traveled around the circumference of the mountain / hill in search of small access roads that might offer me a few shots of the property from a little closer vantage point..
That portion of the trip ended up being the gate tour..
Apparently this guy owns the entire hill / mountain because every access road is gated and posted..
I'll leave it up to dear reader to decide if this is about an #elite #Illuminati #hideout or just the #plaything of some #rich guy ;)
Here's NBC's peek inside this monster building
