Pretty interesting stuff. My dad always tells me that no more than 500 people total died out there (including radiation and stuff) since he's from Russia and I guess he would have a better view on all this, but she seemed to bring up some good data too.

Ghost town looked pretty freaky* :P

Re: Bike Ride Through Chernobyl

That is very interesting. Scary to think about what that explosion did to the people and that area.
It's more interesting considering I live less than 4 miles from Three Mile Island. It's kinda cool though to say you live near the famous TMI, but some people might not think so. Actually I don't mind. Alot of people around here wouldn't brag though, haha. So this picture isn't anything new to me, I see this everyday, .

I've thought about going down near TMI and getting some shots of my 3 with it in the background. That'd be funny, then I'd title the picture, "My Nuclear Mazda 3", LOL

Re: Bike Ride Through Chernobyl

Quick quiz. Anyone know where the most Nukes are located?

That's comforting to know. How about North or South Dakota?

Re: Bike Ride Through Chernobyl

Years ago I drove through there with a lit cigarette. That's scary...
