I stumbled upon a video on YouTube of truckers making deliveries to a place called subtropolis. Have any of you guys experience this place to make a delivery ? Quite interesting.

There's actually a few facilities like that scattered around. I've delivered to the underground in Springfield Missouri. It looks almost exactly the same. I believe the whole thing is a cold storage facility. I know where I delivered was. It's definitely an eerie feeling the first time you drive down in there. It's a cool experience

I've been to a similar place, officially in Independence MO, but it's underground, and I was driving an 18 wheeler in a cave!

There's nothing to be scared about. Except the small clearances you will have when you maneuver between those rock walls. I wanted to post pictures, but I'm having trouble with that. But here's a link to my only exprience in underground driving: Colossal Cave Driving
