Yea, SO about that raw footage. You’d think that after I saw that red mist through my view finder several times that I’d jump into my car and break out of that place. But no, instead, I went on the other side where there was a dam, and took lots of photos.
I swear, I don’t know if it’s because I’m former Marine, where I think I’m untouchable. This was not my first time doing some shit like this, and I’m either going to need to stop, take advantage of the 11th amendment, or photograph ONLY in populated areas. People are crazy out here, you know?
The photos will be posted at a later time though.
I’m always going outdoors somewhere taking photos. I wasn’t quite prepared for this particular adventure.
I had googled the terms “slave cabins in New Jersey.” Google then decided to show me a place called “The Solitude House” in a town called High Bridge. The Google results failed to show the ACTUAL status of the property. I thought I was on my way to a museum or something. I get to the town and immediately smelled “Republicans.” I sent two of my friends my current location, and told them that I was in a “KKK Town.”
Anyway, as you can see, the place was damn near desolate, not to mention winter can suck the life out of any environment.
Stay tuned for part 2, where I will post raw footage.
Remind me to always check with Yelp before I do Google.

The number 7 is the seeker, the thinker, the searcher of Truth (notice the capital “T”). The 7 doesn’t take anything at face value — it is always trying to understand the underlying, hidden truths. The 7 knows that nothing is exactly as it seems and that reality is often hidden behind illusions.
