The Chicago Sewers: Deep Sewer (Gallery 32)
2 days ago, on April 16, I hired a Latin King (my age) to be a sewer lookout person for $20. It's a small sewer and not released, and probably won't. 2 nights later, I discovered this sewer and asked Mr. Garrick Howard of our rooming house, he being the 3rd person for my sewer assistance.
April 18, 2013 4:40 p.m. This sewer should be the tied for the 2nd deepest sewer I been down.
10:08 p.m. Garrick Howard, of 2454 S. Spaulding. I asked the Puerto Rican woman to take this photo of us.
I took a photo (not shown), and saw Garrick up there, and asked if I could take a photo of him, and he said yea. Photo of Garrick looking up.
After another self-photo of me (not shown), the mud below me began to sink, and I started to fall into the water. I immediately threw my camera into my pocket and held onto the handrails with both hands, and got the water into my shoes. I don't know what it is I'm stepping on, but whatever it is, is some real nasty-ass shit.
11:41 p.m. I asked Garrick to take this photo of me.
After I came out the sewer, Garrick said that at 1st he was scared, seeing how deep it was, but knowing me got out, he said that next time, he wants to go down. In that case he would be the 2nd person under my watch to go into a sewer.
