It was the last day of July, and sunny; one of those lazy warm Sundays. Chisel and I decided to go out and get into some new places, the first of which ended up being the Goddard & Goddard Co. plant:
Detroit-ish.com has recently posted some much better photos of this plant.
After a trip to Continental Motors, we took a last minute stab at the RenCen. We had been thinking about making an attempt at roofing it, and today seemed like as good a day to try as any. To our amazement we almost immediately happened upon a tour group that was about to go up to the restaurant on the top floor. Chisel and I looked at each other, then nonchalantly blended in with them at the elevators, and minutes later took in the awesome view from the glass-walled 72nd floor.
We decided the RenCen had won this round, and headed down the stairs again. As soon as we came to the elevators on 70 again and pushed the down button, another elevator opened and a burly security guard stepped off, walking right at us while speaking into his radio. He asked, "Were you guys just trying to get on the roof?" We nodded and smiled like kids caught with our hands in the cookie jar.
